Acetylacetone Market to Discern Magnified Growth During 2017-2027

Posted by Divakar on January 17th, 2018


Acetylacetone falls in the category of organic compound that generally exists in two tautomeric forms, which undergoes interconvert procedure and is used as a single compound in numerous applications. Even though the compound is commercially named as the diketone form, and named as pentane-2, 4-dione, the enol form generally forms a considerable component of the compound and is essentially the preferred form in many solvents. It has an appearance of colorless liquid that is a predecessor to acetylacetonate, a bidentate ligand. Acetylacetone is also used as a building block for the formation of heterocyclic compounds. On an industrial scale the acetlycetone is formulated by the thermal rearrangement of isopropenyl acetate compound. It is also used to prepare condensation of ethyl acetate and acetone in the presence of basic catalyst, which is further undergoes through acidification. Actylacetone finds its adoption in many applications such as in synthesis of metal acetylacetonates, preparation of vitamins, intermediate for pesticides (fungicides, sulfonyl urea – herbicides), stabilizer for Polyester and PVC, in gasloline and lubricants as a metal deactivator. Furthermore acetyl acetone is also used in the preparation of coatings for anticorrosion agents. Particularly, in the agriculture sector the use of acetylacetone is high due to high yield requisite and effective crop performance achieved through use of pesticides which enables the acetylacetone as one of the prominent business opportunities globally. It further enables the increase in manufacturers and suppliers in the manufacturing and distribution of acetylacetone.

Acetylacetone Market: Drivers and Restraints

In last few years, there has been inclination towards increase in the production & consumption of acetylacetone for many applications and end-user industry, where related growth is likely to be trail in the coming 5–10 years. The adoption of innovative technologies used in production coupled with escalating demand in the automotive, agriculture and chemical industries is predictable to influence market expansion in a progressive direction. Increase in pharmaceutical-based drug consumption, industrial expansion and growing disposable incomes have directed to a surge in restoration and makeover activities and novel construction plans which allows the increase in acetylacetone consumption worldwide. Moreover, the noteworthy adoption of agrochemicals in developing countries have also fueled the demand for acetylacetone. Advanced approaches such as adoption of novel technologies in order to manufacture a bio-based product in a cost-effective manner are widely adopted by the manufacturers.
