Di-isobutylene Market: Introduction
Di-isobutylene is an isomeric compound that is colorless with an odor similar to aromatic gasoline and has a flashpoint of 10°F. Di-isobutylene is mainly produced by reaction of isobutylene with tertiary butyl alcohol in the presence of sulphonic acid. It has a wide range of applications in the production of chemicals and chemical intermediates use din rubber, lubricant and polymer industries due to its high compatibility and chemical stability. In addition to this, di-isobutylene finds application as a co-monomer in the production of elastomers, hydrocarbon resins, and polycarbonate resins. Key application of di-isobutylene includes the production of octylphenol and isononyl derivative that are further used as a tackifier in radial tires, stabilizers in rubber and lubricant industry, and anti-wear lubricants and HALS stabilizers for polyolefin applications. Rise in expenditure in downstream industries has led to the rapid growth of the di-isobutylene market. Di-isobutylene market is expected to witness significant growth owing to its use in the automobile and refinery industry. Thus, the di-isobutylene market is likely to grow at a high pace over the forecast period of 2019-2029.
Di-isobutylene Market: Market Dynamics
Rise in global automobile industry direct influenceS the growth of global di-isobutylene market. Di-isobutylene is primarily used in the production of octylphenol resins, octylated diphenylamine and isononyl derivatives, which is further used in the production of automobile tires. With the ongoing trend towards sustaining resources and rising consciousness about safety during the operation of an automobile, high demand for high-performance automobile tires is witnessed. Moreover, with increased focus on reducing fuel cost in the automotive sector, the need for di-isobutylene has increased worldwide as it is used as an additive in two stroke engine which burns without producing any harmful gases, thereby resulting in low soot deposition. As a result, the market for di-isobutylene is expected to show a smooth growth curve in the forthcoming years. Moreover, its usage in lubricant and rubber industries has further added value to the growth of the di-isobutylene market. The increasing demand for di-isobutylene in the various end-use industries is mainly due to the extensive properties offered by di-isobutylene such as high tensile strength, electrical insulation and low gas permeability, which further contributes to the growth of consumption of di-isobutylene globally. On the other hand, uncertainty in crude oil prices and recession in automotive industry will impact the growth of the di-isobutylene market.
