The global biobutanol market grew at a CAGR of around 9% during 2015-2020.

Biobutanol, or butyl alcohol, refers to a chemical compound used as a fuel in internal combustion (IC) engines or an organic solvent. It consists of four carbon atoms and is usually manufactured by microbial fermentation of starch, sugar and cellulosic feedstock. In comparison to the conventionally used ethanol and gasoline, it is non-corrosive in nature, immiscible in water, has higher energy content and flammability limits and lower vapor pressure. It also releases lesser quantities of hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxide and carbon monoxide upon combustion. As a result, biobutanol is widely used in the manufacturing of rubber, paints, coatings, resins, plasticizers, pharmaceuticals, food-grade extractants, chemical intermediates and herbicides.

The increasing demand for energy-efficient sources of fuel across the globe represents one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. With the increasing environmental concerns among the masses regarding the release of excessive greenhouse gasses (GHG) into the environment, there is a shifting preference towards alternative fuels and renewable energy sources, thereby driving the market growth. In line with this, widespread adoption of biobutanol for the manufacturing of chemicals, such as butyl acrylates, is also contributing to the market growth. It is also used for the production of acetates, acrylates, glycol ethers and other industrial solvents. Additionally, various advancements in the fermentation and cellulosic extraction technologies are favoring the market growth. Other factors, including increasing consumption of biofuels in the aviation industry and fleet transportation sector, along with the implementation of favorable government policies promoting the use of bio-based products, are anticipated to drive the market further. Looking forward, the analyst expects the global biobutanol market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
