Based on applications, the methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) market is categorized into following segments:

  • Gasoline
  • Isobutene
  • Solvent & Extractant
  • Others (MMA, etc.)

Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether (MTBE) Market

Among considered applications, gasoline segment holds the largest market share in 2016 at more than 30% of total demand for methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) and is expected to maintain its dominance through the forecast period. It is one of a group of chemicals commonly known as "oxygenates" because they raise the oxygen content of gasoline. It is almost exclusively used as a fuel additive in motor gasoline. Oxygen helps gasoline burn more completely, reducing harmful tailpipe emissions from motor vehicles. Methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) is used in medical applications to dissolve gallstones. Methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) is further processed to obtain isobutylene, which is used to manufacture butyl rubber, polyisobutylene and methyl methacrylate (MMA). These chemicals are used in numerous end-use industries such as industrial manufacturing, electronics, automotive, etc.. Some of the other factors fuelling the methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) market growth include rising demand for solvent, extractant and others applications.

On the basis of geographical distribution, the global methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) market is segmented into following regional markets:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Europe
    • U.K.
    • Germany
    • France
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • China
    • India
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Latin America
    • Brazil
    • Mexico
    • Rest of Latin America
  • Middle East & Africa
    • GCC
    • Rest of Middle East and Africa

Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether (MTBE) Market

In base year 2016, Asia Pacific and Eastern Europe were the largest regional markets for methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE). In Asia Pacific, China and India serve potential markets for methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) in the next five to six years. Growing consumption of methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) in various applications like in gasoline, isobutene, solvent & extractant especially in China and India, along with commercialization measures for methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) in various end-use industries is likely to fuel the methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) market growth. Also, the market is estimated to lose its share in developed regions to developing regions in the next few years.

Demand for methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) from European market comes from the rise in the demand for automotive and transportation fuels and production of isobutene. Eastern Europe methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) market is expected to grow at significant rate in upcoming years.
