2-EH Market is Expected to Witness a CAGR of 6.7% during Forecast Period from 2022 to 2032

Large amounts of 2-ethylhexanol produced worldwide are used to manufacture various types of plasticizers, including phthalate and non-phthalate plasticizers. Among these types of plasticizers, phthalates are essentially phthalic acid and are used in a variety of end-use industries due to their processing and performance properties.

Key players in the 2-Ethylhexanol market point out that phthalates are Phthalates account for almost half of the global consumption of plasticizers and therefore aim to capitalize on the growing demand for 2-ethylhexanol in the phthalate industry.

On the other hand, non-phthalates are plasticizers. that do not contain phthalates but consist of several other components, such as e.g. B. diisononyl cyclohexanedicarboxylate (Hexamoll DINCH), bio-based plasticizers and diethylhexyl terephthalate (DEHT).

Considering that plasticizers are aimed at the 2-Ethylhexanol Market aims to meet the specific needs of plasticizer industry players. In the coming years, the demand for 2-Ethylhexanol 2-Ethylhexanol is expected to increase. remains significantly high in areas such as automotive manufacturing,
build/rebuild and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).
