Global i-Propyl Mercaptan Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

I-propyl mercaptan is an organosulfur compound with the formula CH3CH2SH. It is a colorless liquid that is soluble in organic solvents. I-propyl mercaptan is used as a chemical intermediate and as a flavoring agent.

PurityAbove 99%:

Purity Above 99% is a new term in the i-Propyl Mercaptan market. It means that the product has been produced by using 99% pure (more than 900 ppm) propylene. The product is expected to have high demand on account of its superior performance as an octane enhancer and anti-knocking agent in gasoline engines compared to traditional additives such as ethanol, MTBE, and other aromatics.

PurityBelow 99%:

PurityBelow 99% is a special type of impurity below 99.5% in chemical compounds which are used as an analytical parameter for the quality of the product being manufactured. It helps to maintain and/or improve the quality of various products such as vegetable oils, soaps, cosmetics, lubricants & greases and pharmaceuticals among others by enhancing their organoleptic properties.

Application Insights:

The chemical synthesis application segment led the global i-Propyl mercaptan market in 2017 and is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The increasing demand for i-propyl mercaptan from various applications, such as pharmaceuticals, paints and coatings, adhesives and sealants production is expected to drive the market growth.

i-Propyl mercaptan plays a key role in many processes including VOC emissions control during gasoline combustion along with other engine components such as oxygen sensor calibration. In addition, it also helps reduce harmful exhaust emissions by acting as an inhibitor in diesel engines which further supports its demand across various industries globally. Petroleum analysis was estimated as one of the largest application segments owing to its wide usage across different petroleum refining processes including catalytic reforming unit (CRU), cationic exchange unit (CEU), normal boiling range units (NBRUs) & high boiling range units (HBRUs).

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest regional market in 2017 and accounted for a volume share of over 40% in the same year. The region is expected to witness significant growth due to increasing demand from end-use industries such as chemical, petroleum, and other petrochemicals. China is one of the major producers as well as consumers of propyl mercaptan globally.

In terms of revenue, North America emerged as the second-largest regional market with a share of over 25% in 2017 owing to high production volumes generated from U.S., coupled with growing demand for gasoline additive across various application industries such as chemical manufacturing and petroleum analysis laboratories.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for propyl mercaptan in various end-use industries such as agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, and flavors & fragrances is expected to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period.
  • Growing demand for propyl mercaptan from emerging economies is another key factor that is anticipated to fuel the growth of the market in future.
  • Stringent environmental regulations pertaining to sulfur dioxide emissions are projected to propel the demand for propyl mercaptan as a replacement for conventional sulfur compounds over the next few years.
  • Rising investments by key players in research and development activities aimed at enhancing product offerings is likely to boost market growth during forecast period.
