The global acetone market is projected to reach a value of US$ 10248.6 Mn in 2031, with the market growing at an average CAGR of 4.9% from 2021 to 2031. The target market is expected to experience increasing demand from the electrical, pharmaceuticals, paints and coatings, and automotive industries which will drive the market growth during the forecast period.

As chemical acetone is commonly used in agricultural chemicals such as fungicides and insecticides. This is because it is a good solvent and serves as a carrier agent for the active ingredients. Likewise, it is employed in thinning polyester resin and dissolving two-part epoxies and superglue before they harden. It further assists in the cleaning of polyester resins and gel coats.

Acetone can also act as an effective means of clearing casting resin from the skin. It is utilized in the production of gravure and flexography packaging printing inks. As Acetone is the fastest-drying solvent, it also gains usage as a solvent in screen printing to strip lacquer and lacquer-adhered stencils from screen materials. It also acts as an ink thinner.

The evolution of various end-use industries including automotive, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals might bolster the target market demand. It will also amplify the demand of acetone which will assist in the production of polycarbonates. As polycarbonate is extensively used in diverse automotive parts of a car such as windows, headlamps, sunroofs, taillights, and many others, it is likely to foster growth for the global acetone market. Acetone also helps in the production of methyl methacrylate which is used in auto-glazing and for exterior car coating, as it is weather-resistant and shields against scratches.
