The Global Market for Butylated Hydroxytoluene (2019-2024): Industrial Growth in Asia-Pacific Presents Lucrative Opportunities - ResearchAndMarkets.com

May 9, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 9, 2019--The “Butylated Hydroxytoluene Market by Grade (Food Grade, Technical Grade), End-Use Industry (Plastics & Rubbers, Food & Beverages, Animal Feed, Personal Care), Region (APAC, Europe, North America, South America, MEA) - Global Forecast to 2024” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global BHT market is estimated to be USD 218 million in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 282 million by 2024, at a CAGR of 5.3% during the same period.

The increasing demand for BHT in various end-use industries as an antioxidant to retard deterioration, to maintain color, stability, and flavor is expected to drive the demand for BHT. Growing concerns regarding the use in the food & beverages industry are restraining the demand for BHT.

Sasol Limited (South Africa), Lanxess AG (Germany), Eastman Chemical Company (US), Oxiris Chemicals S.A.(Spain), HELM AG (Germany), Finoric Llc (US), Honshu Chemical Industry Co. Ltd (Japan), Twinkle Chemi Lab Pvt Ltd (India), Yasho Industries Limited (India), Milestone Preservatives Pvt Ltd (India), and Finar Limited (India) are the leading manufacturers of BHT globally.

Technical grade is the faster-growing segment of the BHT market

The market for technical grade is projected to register the higher CAGR during the forecast period. This high growth is mainly attributed to demand for BHT as an antioxidant in plastics, rubbers, coatings, printing inks, lubricants, biodiesel, and elastomers. Industrial growth in APAC especially in the agrochemicals, printing inks, coatings industries is driving the demand for BHT.

Plastics & rubbers is the largest end-use industry segment of the BHT market

Plastics & rubbers are projected to be the largest end-use industry segment of the BHT market. The growing per capita plastics consumption, especially in packaging, automotive, and building & construction, is driving the demand for plastics more than the global GDP growth rate. Hence, many international plastics manufacturers have commenced manufacturing facilities in Asia Pacific and North America. This, in turn, is diving the demand for BHT in the plastics & rubbers end-use industry.

Asia Pacific is projected to be the largest BHT market

The BHT market has been studied for Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and the Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is projected to be the largest butylated hydroxytoluene market. The high demand is mainly attributed to the industrial growth of the region. APAC is a hub for plastics, personal care, animal feed chemical, food & beverages, and pharmaceutical industries. Many foreign investors commenced the manufacturing facilities in the region due to low production costs. This, in turn, is driving the demand for BHT in the region.
