Isobutanol is a colorless, mobile liquid that is used in various applications as a solvent, solubilizer, additive, and extracting agent. The growing demand for coatings containing isobutanol is likely to be the major driver for the global isobutanol market over the forecast period. Isobutanol uses in coatings to enable a smoother flow and to lower the viscosity of the formulation. The increasing demand for paints and coatings for use on metals and wood is likely to be a major driver for the isobutanol market over the forecast period. Isobutanol is also used in the production of antibiotics and vitamins, among other pharmaceutical industry products. This is a key end use area for isobutanol and is likely to remain a major driver for the isobutanol market over the forecast period.
Fluctuations in the prices of crude oil are likely to restrain market growth over the forecast period. Due to geopolitical tensions as well as the discovery of new oil reserves, prices of petroleum have fluctuated in recent years. This has had a significant adverse impact on the isobutanol market over the last few years.

The global Isobutanol market is segmented on the basis of type, application, end use, and region.
By type, the global isobutanol market is segmented into biobased and synthetic. The synthetic segment currently dominates the global isobutanol market due to its ease of production. Due to the strong existence of petroleum refinery infrastructure, synthetic isobutanol can be readily prepared and obtained through petroleum. This has elevated the availability of synthetic isobutanol on a global scale. However, biobased isobutanol is likely to grow in demand over the forecast period due to the growing awareness about the need to obtain biobased alternatives to petroleum-based products. Due to the scarcity of petroleum, the demand for biobased alternatives has grown rapidly over the last few years. This is likely to remain a key driver for the biobased segment of the isobutanol market over the forecast period.
By application, the global isobutanol market is segmented into intermediate, solvent, solubilizer, extracting agent, additive, and others. The intermediate segment holds the largest share in the global isobutanol market.
By end use, the global isobutanol market is segmented into pharmaceuticals, oil and gas, paints and coatings, textiles, chemicals, and others.
Asia Pacific dominates the global isobutanol market due to the growing petroleum industry in the region. China is likely to emerge as a global leader in the global isobutanol market over the forecast period. The growing consumption of paints and coatings in the growing automotive and construction industries in Asia Pacific is likely to be a major driver for the isobutanol market in Asia Pacific over the forecast period.
