Ethyl acetate is a neutral colorless liquid with a faint, pleasantly fruity odor. It is miscible in all proportions with the common organic solvents. It is slightly soluble in water and soluble in most organic solvents such as ether, acetone, and alcohol. Stringent regulatory norms regarding natural leather production is driving growth of the market. Ethyl acetate is used in spread-coating compounds for artificial leather. Ethyl ethanoate is extensively utilized as a component of lacquer thinners and lacquer thinners. Ethyl Acetate solvent is commonly used in column and thin-layer chromatography. It is manufactured by the esterification of acetic acid, ethanol and catalytic condensation of acetaldehyde with alkoxides. Ethyl acetate, also known as acetoxyethane, acetic acid ethyl ester, acetic ether, ethyl acetic ester, vinegar naphtha, acetic acid, ethyl ester, ethyl acetate, acetidin, acetic ester, is one organic compound and is used predominantly as a solvent in various reactions. Ethyl acetate is obtained through the direct esterification of ethyl alcohol with acetic acid, a process that involves combining acetic acid with excess ethyl alcohol and adding a small amount of sulphuric acid.
In North America, ethyl acetate is mainly used for manufacturing paints, and coatings, printing inks, synthetic leather, and others. The increasing consumption of these products is expected to contribute to the growth of the ethyl acetate market in the region. The growing demand for convenient and flexible packaging solutions for food products and beverages in the U.S. is expected to drive the growth of ethyl acetate in the region.
The steady economic growth and an increase in the number of middle-and high-income consumers in countries, such as Argentina, Brazil, Peru, and Chile, are leading to a change in lifestyle patterns in the region. These factors have led to a strong increase in the demand for Ready-To-Eat (RTE) food products that are healthy and conveniently packed. This, in turn, is expected to drive the growth of the flexible packaging market, which will directly increase the consumption of ethyl acetate solvent-based printing inks in the region. In addition, the high demand for paints and coatings in the automotive, furniture, and other industries in countries, including the UAE, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia, is expected to increase the demand for ethyl acetate.
