The global methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) market size is anticipated to expand at a considerable CAGR during the forecast period, 2021–2028. The growth of the market is attributed to the easy availability of MTBE coupled with the low cost of the compound.

Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether (MTBE) Market key takeaways

MTBE is a flammable liquid that helps in producing an unleaded gasoline for the fuel of the cars. It increases the oxygen and octane level in gasoline and reduces the carbon dioxide emission to avoid air pollution. MTBE is a relatively volatile chemical compound and moderately soluble in water. Therefore, the inhalation of the compound can cause irritation in the nose and throat.

The chemical compound is produced with the help of hydrocarbons containing isobutylene. According to Independent Commodity Intelligence Services (ICIS), over 90% of MTBE production is used in gasoline as oxygenating and a booster for octane. MTBE is more preferable than ethanol owing to its transportability and it also provides superior performance.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Rapid industrialization is expected to drive the market growth.
  • Decreasing emission of diesel due to the utilization of MTBE can accelerate the market growth.
  • The COVID-19 outbreak has reduced consumption of gasoline has declined the demand for MTBE in the market. However, the relaxation in the restrictions amidst the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to spur the growth of the market.
  • Trade barriers in the export and import of MTBE due to government policies can hinder the growth of the market.
  • Rapid growth of the electric vehicle (EV) industry can create challenges for the market growth.
  • Increasing number of refineries in emerging economies, such as India and China, is expected to foster the growth of the market in the projected timeline.
  • Technological advancements in the chemical industry can create lucrative opportunities for the market growth.

Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether (MTBE) Market Segment Insights

Gasoline additives segment is expected to accelerate at a rapid pace

Based on applications, the market is segregated into gasoline additives, isobutene, solvents, and other applications. The gasoline additives segment is expected to accelerate at a rapid pace during the forecast period owing to rising uses of MTBE in various industries to curb up the air pollution. However, the other applications segment is anticipated to hold a key share of the market in the coming years.

Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether (MTBE) Market by applications

Asia Pacific is anticipated to constitute a major key market share

In terms of regions, the global methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) market is classified as Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is anticipated to constitute a major key share of the market during the forecast period. Increasing number of producers in the region extensively involved in expansion and acquisition are driving the regional market growth. However, the Middle & Africa is anticipated to exhibit a steady growth during the forecast period owing to high temperature of region, which makes it impossible for MTBE to withstand in this region. Therefore, a special means of transportation is required to ship the MTBE, encouraging emerging players to enter the market.
