Paints & Coatings End-use Industry to Dominate Demand for Diacetone Alcohol, States Fact.MR

According to Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the global diacetone alcohol market is estimated to exceed a valuation of US$ 1.44 billion in 2022, and further expand at a CAGR of 4.3% by value over the assessment period (2022-2032).

Diacetone alcohol is a carbon-based compound with the formula CH3C (O) CH2C (OH), sometimes called DAA. It is a colourless, non-corrosive, limpid liquid and miscible with most common organic solvents.

The paints & coatings industry is broad and dynamic. Rising demand for paints & coatings for use in medical products, automotive, transportation equipment, and wood & non-wood products is driving the market.

Rise in the use of diacetone alcohol as a chemical intermediate for the preparation of other compounds such as hexylene glycol and methyl isobutyl will propel the market of diacetone alcohol over the coming years. Moreover, wide use of diacetone alcohol as a preservative is escalating its demand; it is widely used to preserve animal tissues.

Additionally, increased use of diacetone alcohol in applications such as chemical intermediaries, solvents, etc., is set to drive market growth going forward.
