MEK
MEK

MEK production went down over the years as better replacements were discovered, due to which eco-friendly and non-toxic solvents, such as ethyl acetate, saw an increase in demand. However, the demand for MEK in the country did not shrink, resulting in increased imports.

Apart from Celtex Petrochemical Limited, there is no major producer of MEK in India. Significant amount of the domestic demand for MEK is met through imports and the international market has direct influence on the domestic prices. To be par with this emerging demand it is required to develop more MEK manufacturing units. The government should also encourage private players to enter into the MEK production market and appropriate incentives could be helpful to tempt them towards it.

The domestic market has witnessed a significant increase in the demand for MEK which increased at a healthy growth rate of around 9.3% from the fiscal year 2008-09 to 2016-17. The future demand for MEK will be in healthy double digits from the fiscal year 2016 to 2021 which will force more MEK to be imported.

Global Methyl Ethyl Ketone Market size is forecasted to reach USD 3.64 billion against the volume of 1.9 Million Tonnes with a CAGR of 4.3 % by 2022. China, Western Europe, Japan and the United States are leading Consumer of MEK. It is projected that Asia Pacific region will drive the highest growth rate in the future as demand for MEK in this region is increasing at a fast pace with the development in end use. Increasing investments and development in automobile and infrastructure industries in China and India will further induce the consumption of MEK in the Asia Pacific region. Positive demand outlook for paints and coatings, adhesives, printing inks; on account of increasing construction spending, particularly in the Asia Pacific and the Middle East is expected to remain a key driving factor for the global MEK market.
