COVID-19 impact on Monobutyltin Oxide Market

  • The COVID-19 outbreak has hampered almost every industry. Governments of various countries across the globe enforced lockdown measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus. This resulted in slowdown and even halt in manufacturing operations, thus hampering the demand for end-use products and consumer products. In turn, this affected the demand for raw materials such as monobutyltin oxide.
  • Key applications of monobutyltin oxide are related to plastics and PVC industries. Almost all the businesses came to halt due to lockdowns. Construction activities halted, while manufacturing of different consumer goods was also affected. Demand for PVC was also adversely affected. In some regions, manufacturing processes for non-essential goods were curtailed. This created a gap in demand for plastics, thus adversely affecting the monobutyltin oxide market.
  • The COVID-19 outbreak has directly affected the production of monobutyltin oxide. Industrial shutdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has created disruption in the supply and demand chain. Disruption in supply chain hampered full-scale operations of companies operating in the market.

Key Drivers of Monobutyltin Oxide Market

  • Major application of monobutyltin oxide is in the production of stabilizers for plastics including PVC. PVC has direct application in many industries such as automobile, electrical & electronics, and construction. Introduction of 5G electronics is likely to boost the electrical industry. Construction and automobiles sectors are also likely to expand in various regions. This is estimated to augment the demand for PVC and other plastics. In turn, this is projected to drive the global demand for monobutyltin oxide.
  • Monobutyltin is significantly efficient than tin-free catalysts. It reduces reaction time of esterification reaction by 20%-25%, enables reaction at lower temperature, saves energy, and increases the efficiency of processes. It also does not need filtering after reaction, thus helping save time. Monobutyltin is an ideal option as a catalyst for many companies due to the increase in efforts to improve efficiency and focus on energy savings.

Restraints of Monobutyltin Oxide Market

  • Plastics such as PVC adversely the environment. There is a rising concern about toxic effects of plastics. This is likely to hamper the plastics industry. This can act as a restraining factor for the global monobutyltin oxide market, as it is primarily used in the plastics industry.

Asia Pacific to Constitute Significant Share of Global Monobutyltin Oxide Market

  • In terms of region, the global monobutyltin oxide market can be split into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2020. Asia Pacific is the largest market for monobutyltin oxide due to the growth of major end-use industries in the region. Electronics market in Asia, especially China and Hong Kong, as well as the construction market in China and India contribute significantly to plastics industry. This is likely to boost the monobutyltin oxide market in the region.
  • North America is also a key consumer of monobutyltin oxide led by the growth in electronics and chemical industries in the region. The market in North America is expected to expand at a moderate pace in the near future.

Monobutyltin Oxide Market Introduction

  • Monobutyltin, commonly called as MBTO, is a white amorphous organotin compound, which is almost insoluble in water or organic solvents. As it is hydrolytically stable, it is used as a versatile neutral catalyst in many chemical industry processes.
  • Monobutyltin oxide is used in the manufacture of polyester resins and alkyd resins, as a catalyst in esterification processes, transesterification processes, and polycondensation reaction up to 240˚C. It is also used to produce stabilizers for various plastics such as PVC.
