Market Definition

Acetone is a colourless, volatile, flammable liquid that is commonly used as an industrial solvent. Acetone is an organic compound that is primarily produced as a by-product of phenol's reaction with benzene and propylene via the cumene hydro peroxide process. Acetone is primarily used as a feedstock for producing methyl methacrylate, Bisphenol A (BPA), and solvents. Acetone is widely used in a variety of industries, including pharmaceuticals, agricultural chemicals and paints, coatings, cosmetics and personal care, electronics, construction, automotive, and adhesives, all of which should contribute to industry growth.

Acetone Market Dynamics

Drivers

  • Expansion in regions chemical and industrial sectors

Acetone demand in the Europe is driven by the paints and coatings, construction, and automotive industries. The rapid growth of these industries, owing to rising employment and disposable income, is expected to drive acetone demand. Due to the rising demand from various demographics and the presence of large corporations, the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries have shown growth potential. Increasing investments in downstream facilities for the production of plastic resins, are expected to open up new growth avenues in the future. This trend is expected to result in significant industrialization, which will benefit the regional chemical industry.

  • Ramping of production due to high demands

Due to the high demand for acetone, manufacturers have had to ramp up production. This increased production per year resulted in a price increase in 2017, and this trend is expected to continue throughout the forecast period. Another reason for rising operational costs is a stagnant profit margin. The high cost was also driven by a combination of factors, including increasing propylene prices and domestic supply regulations, particularly in developing countries.

Opportunities

  • Intervention of plastic resins

The production of plastic resins is expected to open up new growth opportunities for the market in the future. As acetone is a solvent with high solubility, solvent-based paints and coatings dry faster than low-solvent paints, making them more preferable and potentially profitable for the paints and coatings segment. A significant increase in the production of sanitizers and disinfectants is also expected to be a key opportunity for market growth.

Restraints

  • Flammability and toxicity

Acetone has a high flammability and low acute toxicity. These factors may be a detriment to the global acetone market because exposure to this liquid causes severe eye irritation and may cause drowsiness or dizziness. Another major factor expected to impede the growth of the global acetone market over the forecast period is the high price of acetone.

  • Negative effects on human health

Due to the organic compound's high solubility in water, groundwater contamination may occur, resulting in environmental degradation that may have an impact on human health. The European Commission's increased regulations on BPA are likely to impede the growth of the acetone market, as it is a key ingredient in the production of polycarbonates and epoxy resins. Furthermore, the availability of substitutes and the increasing use of green solvents can stifle growth.

COVID-19 Impact on Europe Acetone Market Dynamics

The COVID-19 pandemic has weakened demand for acetone and its derivatives due to logistics, large-scale supply chain disruptions, and economic disruptions. Furthermore, due to temporary lockdown measures imposed by governments, chemical manufacturing plants' operations have negatively impacted the acetone market share. Furthermore, automotive production and construction delays cause a drop in polymers and plastics. As a result, the demand for industrial chemicals like BPA and MMA falls. With new opportunities, pharmaceutical manufacturers, the largest consumers of acetone, attempt to re-establish their market position. Furthermore, the increased demand for numerous drugs, medications, and hygiene products as a result of the pandemic increases the demand for acetone market share.

Expected Impact of Economic Slowdown on the Pricing and Availability of Products
