Key Market Trends

Plasticizers Segment to Dominate the Market

  • In the construction industry, MIBC has major application in paints and surface coatings. Currently, the building and construction industry is a thriving industry in several emerging economies of Asia-Pacific and the South American region, which is expected to drive the usage of the MIBC market.

  • The global construction market is anticipated to expand over 70% by 2030, resulting in an increase in the demand for methyl isobutyl carbinol.

  • Moreover, refurbishment and upgrade of existing and mature buildings in countries, like the United States, may further drive the investment in the sector.

  • For instance, according to the US Census Bureau, in 2018 the value of construction in the United States was around USD 1,293,256 million in construction. In 2018, the value of the residential sector was about USD 545,388 million and non-residential was about USD 747,868 million. This, in turn, is likely to increase the demand for MIBC.

  • The factors driving the building and construction industry are the ever-increasing population, rapid urbanization, as well as the rise in purchasing power. As a result of the aforementioned factors, investments in infrastructure are being made, and are included in plans.
