Sep 2nd, 2011

LONDON – The plasticiser dioctyl phthalate (DOP), being the key application market for 2-ethylhexanol, impacts the consumption and supply of the latter to a large extent. Today much sentiment coming from health and environmental institutions forms a strong opposition to the use of DOP in many applications. As a result the demand for 2-ethylhexanol is indicating small growth levels or even relative decline in the countries of Europe, the USA, Japan, South Korea.

Contrariwise Chinese 2-ethylhexanol market is exposed to witness steady demand upsurge. In the coming 4 to 5 years it is expected to register a rate of around 6-7% annually – a figure that contributes largely to the total global demand growth of 2% a year through 2015. China is number 1 importer of 2-ethylhexanol on the global alcohols market – the volume of the material imported to the country runs up to annual 250 thousand tonnes.
