Global diacetone alcohol market: Rising demand from new applications

The increased use of DAA in applications such as preservatives, hydraulic fluid brakes, photographic films, automotive carburetor cleaners, and polymer processing is expected to foster the demand for DAA during the forecast period. As DAA is soluble in water and various organic solvents, it is used in the photosensitization coating process for photographic film production and as a solvent for dyes, gums, and cellulose nitrate.

“DAA is also used in automotive to clean brakes, carburetors, clutch, and transmission parts. It is used as a degreaser in metal cleaning. It has been increasingly used in hydraulic compression fluids due to its excellent water solubility and viscosity,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals.
