Transparency Market Research, New York: According to “Butanes Market – Global Industry Size, Market Share, Trends, Analysis, And Forecasts 2019 – 2027”, a new report published by Transparency Market Research (TMR), the global butane market is estimated to reach US$ 155.7 Billion by the end of 2027, growing from US$ 84.0 Billion back in 2018. The report states that the butanes market will expand at a CAGR of 7.1% in terms of value from 2019 to 2027.

Increasing demand for Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) to Drive Butanes Market Demand

Butanes are primarily used in liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). The demand for butane is directly proportional to the rise in demand for LPG, since two-thirds of the butane produced globally is used in LPG. Presently there are many factors driving the global market for butanes. According to the report, the surging demand for LPG as a domestic fuel in commercial and residential sectors is the major factor attributed to the growth of the global butanes market. The market demand for butane is also fueled by the growing ethylene capacity in the Middle East, since butane is also used as petrochemical feedstock required for producing ethylene and other derivatives. However, fluctuations in the volatile crude oil market and growing regulatory issues owing to environmental concerns have appeared as major hindrances limiting the growth of butanes market.
