PODCAST: Global steady to soft IPA demand limiting impact of acetone constraints

ICIS Editorial


NUREMBERG (ICIS)–Consumption of isopropanol (IPA) is insufficient to result in significantly tighter conditions despite upstream acetone constraints in Asia and Europe.

Demand in the US is also weak, but rising feedstock propylene pricing is putting pressure on IPA.

Europe report editor, Nick Cleeve, speaks to  Asia-Pacific editor, Julia Tan, and US editor, Larry Terry, about global market conditions for IPA.

IPA is a solvent used in many industrial and consumer products and as an extractant. Applications include cosmetics, personal care products (hand sanitisers), de-icers, paints and resins, pharmaceuticals and inks and adhesives.
