Glycol ethers originated to be used in the early 1930s and some have been in general use for nearly 45–50 years. Butyl glycol ether is extensively used in the surface coatings industry as a solvent, a property regulator coalesce, a flow improver in water-based paints, and viscosity improver for alkyd resins. It can be applied in industrial cleaners, printing inks, household, hydraulic fluids, and cosmetics, agricultural formulations and cutting oils. Butyl glycol forms a varied family of more than 30 solvents that commonly dissolve in both water and oil. Conventionally, a distinction is made between two main groups of glycol ethers: the E series and the P series, which derive from the name of the chemical substance that serves as a starting point for their production (ethylene and propylene, respectively). In each series, different derivatives have been developed to provide the properties of solubility, volatility, compatibility and inflammability that are required for different uses.

On the basis of function, the butyl glycol market has into a solvent, chemical intermediate, coalescing acid, and plasticizer. The solvent segment is anticipated to dominate the market share over the horizon. The printing industry is combining butyl glycol, which acts as a chemical intermediate in the formation of butyl glycol acetate as a solvent for specialty printing inks and ballpoint pen pastes. The compound also serves as a coupling agent for resins and dyes in water-based inks for flexographic printing, gravure, and silkscreen. Butyl glycol reverses the evaporation rate of the inks and also enhances wettability by countering surface tension. Additionally, the high solvency of the compound offers good control over viscosity for quality impressions and lowered ink clogging in the screen. Dyes and printing inks utilize butyl glycol as a primary solvent in solvent-based printing inks. As this compound is widely used as a solvent in many verticals, rising demand for solvents is anticipated to drive the butyl glycol market.

In terms of application, the global butyl glycol market is classified into metalworking fluids, paints and coatings, plastic & polymer printing inks, and others. In the global butyl glycol market, paints and coatings segment is expected to dominate for the largest market share over the forecast period. Butyl glycol is moderately used in the paints & coatings industry owing to its more effective nature in drying applications. Moreover, increasing construction activities and residential buildings have propelled the demand for paints and coatings, which further caters to the demand for butyl glycol.
