COVID-19 Impact on Isopropyl Alcohol Market
The recent outbreak of coronavirus had a positive impact on the isopropyl alcohol market. Hand washing and wearing a mask are two of the most common safety elements during COVID. As a result, individuals choose alcohol-based hand sanitizer as a quick alternative to washing their hands with soap and water. Isopropyl alcohol accounts for 70% of the volume of this sanitizer. The need for hand sanitizers has increased as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. Chemical manufacturing companies moved output at sites to accommodate the global demand for hand sanitizers. Isopropyl alcohol is currently being used mostly in hand sanitizers in the pharmaceutical industry. Other pharmaceutical items such as swabs, alcohol wipes, disinfectants, hand sanitizers, oral mouthwash, and others are driving up demand for isopropyl alcohol during this epidemic. Isopropyl is also utilised in manufacturing inks, agricultural chemicals, and resin, among other things. Therefore, the demand for the market has largely seen an accelerated growth.
The severe disruptions in various manufacturing and supply-chain operations due to the various precautionary lockdowns imposed by governments to curb the spread of disease les to huge financial setbacks for the market. Furthermore, consumer demand has decreased as people are now more focused on removing non-essential expenses from their budgets since the general economic situation of most people has been badly impacted by the outbreak. Over the forecast period, the aforementioned determinants will weigh the market's revenue trajectory over the forecast period.
On the brighter side, the market is estimated to revive as individual regulatory bodies begin to relax these enforced lockdowns. The suspended and cancelled operations will continue and as a result the market is estimated to expand.
In September 2021, BASF announced a new range of catalysts that would aid in the production of isopropyl alcohol, a key ingredient in hand sanitizers, which are in high demand due to the novel coronavirus epidemic. Ni 3354 E, a firm's high-performance and high-quality oxo alcohol catalyst, combines remarkable selectivity and activity. This catalyst has been tested and approved for the production of isopropyl alcohol from acetone hydrogenation.
