Acetone (C3H6O), also known as propanone, is a colorless, volatile, water-soluble, and flammable organic compound with a distinct smell and taste. It is found naturally in plants, trees, body fat, natural gases, and volcanic ash. It can also be manufactured through the cumene process using benzene and propylene as raw materials. Acetone is widely used as an industrial solvent in manufacturing plastics, fibers, epoxy resins, drugs, and other chemicals. It is also used in several household, cosmetics, and personal care products and for removing paint, varnish, and nail polish. Acetone is a cost-efficient compound that is highly effective, easy to obtain, and safe to use.
One of the key factors driving the global acetone market is the increasing product utilization in the chemical industry to produce agrochemicals, acetylene, celluloid, cellulose acetate, cellulose nitrate, bisphenol-A (BPA), and methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK). In addition, the widespread product utilization as a solvent in the manufacturing of oils, waxes, fats, resins, rubber, plastics, lacquers, and varnishes is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the increasing demand for acetone in the automotive industry to produce polycarbonates for windows, headlamps, sunroofs, and taillights is providing a considerable boost to the market growth. Additionally, the introduction of bio-acetone that is free of all carcinogenic impurities and produced from the fermentation of biomass for wide-ranging applications in paints, inks, adhesives, and household cleaners is creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the widespread product utilization in the electronics industry as an equipment cleaner and for manufacturing methyl methacrylate (MMA) utilized in flat screens, digital versatile discs (DVDs), compact discs, and laser discs are providing an impetus to the market growth. Other factors, including the extensive application of the compound as a laboratory reagent in academics and research institutions, increasing adoption in the textile industry for degreasing wool and degumming silk, and the rising usage of acetone in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
