Industry Competition And Demand Analysis Of Tert-butyl Acetate: The Pharmaceutical Industry Will Become The Main Growth Driver.
Feb 10, 2019

Tert-butyl acetate, also known as tert-butyl acetate, tert-butyl acetate, tert-butyl acetate, etc., is a colorless liquid with a fruity aroma, which is miscible with most organic solvents such as ethanol, ether, acetic acid, etc. Dissolved in water. Tert-butyl acetate is a low-toxicity solvent for polyurethanes. It has the odor characteristics of esters and has a dissolution range of 0.8% in water at 23 °C. Tert-butyl acetate solvent is a substitute for a variety of volatile organic compounds and harmful air substances, such as toluene, xylene, esters, ketones and hydrocarbons.


In the pharmaceutical field, tert-butyl acetate can be used as a pharmaceutical intermediate for the synthesis of peptides, valarradine, amprenavir, statin intermediates, magnesium alkoxides, etc.; in the fields of coatings, inks, adhesives, etc. It can be used in the formulation of decorative and industrial coatings; in the field of detergents, it can be used for metal degreasing and cleaning of professional equipment; in the field of solvents, tert-butyl acetate has similar evaporation with methyl ethyl ketone, methyl isobutyl ketone and ethyl acetate. Rate and solubility, while replacing toluene in polyamide epoxy coatings.


At present, there are only a dozen domestic t-butyl acetate enterprises, mainly used in the pharmaceutical intermediate industry. Therefore, the operating rate of enterprises is generally not high, and overcapacity has led to fierce competition in the domestic tert-butyl acetate market.


With the intensification of domestic competition, t-butyl acetate production companies have gradually expanded their markets overseas, thus relieving the fierce domestic competition. According to the "2018-2022 China Tert-Butyl Acetate Industry Market Research and Investment Feasibility Assessment Report" released by the New World Industrial Research Center, in 2017, China's tert-butyl acetate production was 11,300 tons. More than half of the tert-butyl acetate produced in China is exported to the United States, Canada, India, Japan and other countries. Even more than 80% of the products of certain enterprises are exported to foreign countries.


The new thinker industry researcher believes that domestic tert-butyl acetate is mainly used in the field of pharmaceutical intermediates, and can also be used in the fields of coatings, inks, cleaning agents and the like. The pharmaceutical industry is an industry with rigid demand. With the rapid development of China's economy and increasing consumption levels, the national health care awareness has been continuously improved, and the demand for pharmaceutical products has also steadily increased. The pharmaceutical industry will become the demand for t-butyl acetate. The main driver of growth. In summary, it is expected that the demand for domestic t-butyl acetate products will continue to increase in 2018-2022.
