Acetone occurs naturally in plants, forest fire, vehicle exhaust etc. Acetone is a colorless, volatile, and flammable organic solvent. Acetone is a nasal irritant and inhalation may lead to hepatotoxic effects (causing liver damage).

Increasing use of acetone in textile industry for degreasing wool and degumming silk, and in formation of lacquers are key factor driving growth of the global acetone market. Additionally, increasing end use applications of acetone as nail polish removers, in cleansing products, fragrance products, hair care products, and skin care products are major factors boosting growth of the global acetone market.
