Propanol (Isopropanol & N-Propanol) Market: Growth Drivers

Growing demand in end-user verticals to promote higher growth

The global propanol (isopropanol & n-propanol) market is projected to grow owing to the increasing demand in the end-user verticals. The chemical has high applications in several of the consumer good sub-segments. It is highly versatile as a solvent which is a leading cause of the high demand for colorless alcohol. For instance, it is used in the cosmetic industry, which is one of the fastest-growing markets across the globe. In cosmetic products, isopropanol assists in dissolving other ingredients present in the products thus allowing the production of a smoothly textured lotion or cream that exhibits even consistency, a selling point for many skincare products.

It is mostly used in items that are made with waxes or oils to prevent them from breaking down. Furthermore, it can also be applied in products as a skin conditioning agent since it is known to have a soothing and moisturizing impact. However, it should be noted that the quantity of chemicals in cosmetic products is limited and only to the extent that it does not have any negative consequences.

Propanol (Isopropanol & N-Propanol) Market: Restraints

Growing safety and health concerns restrict the market growth

One of the primary concerns that could severely impact the global propanol market size is the rising problematic take on the safety of the chemical. Both the subtypes of propanol can be harmful in case they are ingested or absorbed through the skin Prolonged exposure to alcohol can also lead to severe health issues. Hence the chemical is highly regulated and the end-products manufactured using propanol have to clear all regulatory guidelines before they can be made available in the commercial market. The rules surrounding the production, storage, and distribution of the chemical and its derivatives are strict causing many players to switch to other alternatives.

Propanol (Isopropanol & N-Propanol) Market: Opportunities

Growing demand for disinfectants to provide multiple growth opportunities

The global propanol industry players can divert more resources toward exploring the underlying potential of the growing demand for disinfectants across the world. One of the critical impacts of Covid-19 was the high requirement for strong and effective cleaning agents that claim to eliminate all types of harmful compounds or compounds from the surrounding like floors, tiles, and door knobs. The demand is especially high in industries that deal with multiple people with the same tools, for instance, hospitals and salons. These units are also highly regulated in terms of cleanliness leading to more demand for safe and efficient disinfectants.

Propanol (Isopropanol & N-Propanol) Market: Challenges

Fluctuating prices of raw materials to challenge market growth

The chemical is a derivative of petroleum, which is highly price sensitive. Even during 2023, the prices of petroleum are skyrocketing due to the impact of the Russia-Ukraine war. Countries across the globe are registering surging prices of petroleum and its associated products. Any slight hike in the price of crude oil can severely impact the final price of propanol due to the fluctuation in the cost of the raw materials. Additionally, the growing popularity of alternatives to propanol can cause a loss of revenue during the forecast period.

Propanol (Isopropanol & N-Propanol) Market: Segmentation

The global propanol (isopropanol & n-propanol) market is segmented based on type, application, and region.

Based on type, the global propanol (isopropanol & n-propanol) industry segments are isopropanol and n-propanol. The industry witnessed the highest growth in the isopropanol segment in 2022. It is also known as isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and is more in demand as compared to its counterpart. The growth drivers for IPA are its attributes like a higher level of availability and versatility. It can be readily found in large quantities making it more affordable and accessible. Furthermore, the compound is highly versatile and can be used across industries. IPA has lower toxicity as compared to n-propanol making it safer for use. On average, propanol concentration in disinfectant can range between 60% and 90% depending on the desired efficiency.

Based on application, the global propanol (isopropanol & n-propanol) market segments are pharmaceutical, chemical intermediate, household & personal care, and direct solvent. The industry witnessed the highest growth in the direct solvent segment since one of the key applications of the compound is acting as a solvent in various end products including cosmetics and household care products. One of the primary reasons is that it exhibits excellent miscibility with other compounds or solvents like water. Furthermore, propanol when derived from renewable sources has several advantages due to lower toxicity. Animal

studies have concluded that 1-propanol is 2 to 4 times more toxic than ethanol
