Isophorone Market

Isophorone Market: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2020 - 2030

Isophorone: Introduction

  • Isophorone is α, β-Unsaturated carbonyl compound. Isophorone is a clear to pale yellow liquid with a distinguished odor. It is produced in large scale by the aldol condensation of acetone with potassium hydroxide as an ingredient. Intermediates used in the production of isophorone are mesityl oxide, diacetone alcohol, and 3-hydroxy-3,5,5-trimethylcyclohexan-1-one.
  • Isophorone possesses high boiling point and high solvency power. It is a low pressure liquid. These properties make it an ideal solvent in the production of various chemicals. On the other hand, isophorone is also used as a chemical intermediate in various reactions. Apart from being lighter than water, isophorone is moderately water soluble. It exhibits excellent solvent properties for resins, polymers (natural and synthetic), binders, and a number of different chemical products. Isophorone is toxic when ingested and causes irritation upon contact with the skin.
  • It is used as an intermediate in organic synthesis. It is also used as a solvent. For instance, isophorone is applied as a corrosion resistant on bridges, scaffolding, and/or sluices in the construction industry. It is one of the vital constituents in wood preservatives and floor sealants. Isophorone is added to automobile paints. It is also helps improve the properties of fuel.
  • Isophorone is used as a raw material in the production of several chemicals owing to its special molecular structure. It acts as an intermediate in manufacture of compounds such as isophorone diamine and isophorone diisocyanate. Isophorone derivatives are used in several areas such as metal cans, metal paints, and nitrocellulose finishes. Isophorone is also used in vinyl chloride or acetate-based coating systems. Manufacturers of printing inks used for plastics also require a smooth supply of isophorone. It helps improve the brightness and fluidity of paints, adhesives, and printing inks.

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Isophorone Market

  • Isophorone is used as solvent in production of adhesives. Adhesive are used in the construction industry for various activities such as flooring adhesives, architectural coatings, elastomeric roof coatings, water-proofing membranes, sealants, joint compounds, mortar modification, nonwoven applications, fiber bonding, and mortar modification. Growth in the construction industry in developed as well as developing countries owing to increase in urbanization, rise in technological advancements, and growth in disposable income are expected to drive the global isophorone market during the forecast period.

  • Solvents are one of the important raw materials along with pigments, binders, and additives in the production of printing inks. Isophorone is used to keep ink in liquid form when it is applied on plate or cylinder until it is used for printing. It helps improve the brightness and fluidity of printing inks. Thus, increasing demand for isophorone in inks is anticipated to further drive the global isophorone market in the near future.
  • Toxic effects of isophorone are expected to hinder the market in the near future
