Andhra Petrochemicals Limited which is the only producer of N-butanol in India will share its production market with BPCL Kochi refinery from fiscal year 2018-19. The domestic consumption of Butanol is going to increase significantly as it is now seen as an alternative to gasoline. Domestic demand has witnessed a healthy double-digit growth in n-Butanol from fiscal year 2008-09 to 2016-17 with prospect of demand rising further in the future. Capacity Utilization rate of N Butanol is frail due to the low-price margin of imports as international markets make India a dumping ground for n-butanol.

In the global front, n- butanol is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% in the period between fiscal year 2016 to 2021. The Asia-Pacific region is the world’s largest market of n-butanol with a share of around 60% with china being the key consumer. Apart from Asia Pacific; North America and Europe also hold high potential in the n-butanol market due to development in their end use markets.

For the n-butanol market the key drivers are the growing butyl acrylate manufacturing industry, strong demands in China, and rising investments in Saudi Arabia's oil & gas downstream sector. The increasing usage of n-butanol in butyl acetate, butyl acrylate, plasticizers, and glycol ethers owing to high demand in engineering plastics, automotive coating, marine coating, adhesives, and super absorbent polymers will garner a robust growth for the n-butanol market.
