24 Jun 2011 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Large-scale prospects for isopropanol industry development are to be found in China – the demand here is growing at full speed, however the domestic production falls far behind the level to meet the consumption volumes. Both the technological production process and the equipment are out-of-date and cannot be sufficient for the present market landscape. The isopropanol market in China is fed primarily with imports.

Overall the global isopropanol demand is set to go gradually up as the weather is getting warmer which stimulates lavish construction activity. At the same time tightness in the upstream propylene market is restricting isopropanol manufacturing volumes to rise.
