Global Oxo-chemicals Market Overview

Oxo-chemicals are generally derivative chemical compounds that are used in manufacturing of plasticizers, adhesives, paints and coatings, lubricant additives. Oxo group has divalent ligands that have the property of biodegradability on account of oxidative or cell mediated phenomenon that can take place simultaneously or successively. These chemicals are used in manufacturing or processing of oxo-alcohols that can be prepared by addition of hydrogen and carbon monoxide. These intermediate chemicals are formed by synthesis of gas with hydroformylation of olefins. These chemicals can also be converted to form acids besides alcohols. Oxo-chemicals can be used in manufacturing of wide range of products which include oil surface coatings, polymers, plasticizer alcohols and more which make them an attractive choice for a wide range of industry manufacturers. Oxo-chemicals are easily available at low prices that offer high quality and efficiency when used as plasticizers. Oxo-chemical derivatives for instance, plasticizers and ethers are the most widely used industrially. Additionally, n-butyraldehyde and C7-C13 plasticizer oxo alcohols are extensively used oxo-chemicals across the globe. Oxo-chemicals are an integral part of various end-user industries such as automotive, OEM and construction.

Market Size & Forecast

Oxo-chemicals Market is anticipated to record a CAGR of 6.8% over the forecast period. Many multi-national companies are concentrating towards new product advances in oxo-chemicals. Moreover, the many advantageous properties of oxo-chemicals are exploited in the field of OEM and paints and coatings industry. New uses for oxo-chemical derivatives are discovered on regular basis which is expected to drive the oxo-chemicals market rapidly.

Currently the global oxo-chemicals market is observing vibrant growth on account of increasing demand of oxo adhesives, paints and coatings in the market. Advances in construction and building industry in the past few years and growing industrial, residential as well as commercial constructive explorations are projected to drive oxo-chemicals market besides the wide range of functions of oxo-chemicals in an immense range of products such as polymers, alcohols, acids, plasticizers, lubricants and more during the forecast period.

On the basis of regional platform, global Oxo-chemicals market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa region.

As a precursor to manufacturing polymers in automotive and OEM industries, North America is panned to observe substantial oxo-chemicals market growth due to rising oxo-chemicals usage in advancing automotive market. North America is expected to be followed by Asia-Pacific in terms of consumption due to expanding oxo-chemicals requirements in building and construction industries. On the back of multiplying oxo-chemicals uses in growing end-use industries across Japan, India and China, along with growing automotive advancements, Asia Pacific is budding as a regional oxo-chemicals and its derivatives consumption market.

Europe is expected to drive demand moderately and positively impact oxo-chemicals market growth over the forecast period owing to deprived economic conditions persisting across few countries, such as Russia & Spain, in Europe but increased oxo-chemicals application for alcohols and plasticizers manufacturing across the economically healthy countries around the region during the forecast period.
