Isopropanol (IPA): 2010 World Market Outlook and Forecast Been Recently Released by

26 Feb 2010 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Isopropanol demand in Europe was hit by the financial crisis and went down by 15-20% on average in 2009, compared with 2008. Nevertheless, IPA was less influenced than other solvents due to its wide-ranging applications and use in the cosmetics and personal care sectors, which had been more resilient to the downturn.

Demand for IPA in Europe could shrink further in the next five years or so, as consumers substitute IPA (and other solvents) with greener alternatives.

Any investment in new capacity is confined to Asia where growth is strongest. Some expect more imports from Asia in the future, however most analysts consider that Asian region will not be a permanent supplier to Europe.
