Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether Market to Record an Impressive Growth Rate During the
Methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE), molecular formula (CH3)3COCH3, is an organic compound
generally produced by the reaction between isobutene and methanol in presence of a catalyst.
Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether (MTBE) is a flammable, volatile and colourless liquid with a
characteristic mild odor. Distinctive Characteristic properties of methyl tertiary butyl ether such as
higher octane number, low blending vapor pressure, high miscibility with gasoline, and distillation
properties, among others render it suitable as an oxygenating agent in gasoline fuel. Use of MTBE
as an oxygenate increases oxygen content of the fuel and ensures complete combustion. As
Compared to other oxygenates, methyl tertiary butyl ether exhibits relatively lower solubility in
water without phase separation, lower blending density, vapour pressure and no corrosion problems.
All these attributes and properties render it advantageous over some of the other agents.
Government regulations in developed and developing regions pertaining to mandatory use of
oxygenated compounds in gasoline fuel to ensure complete combustion and to minimise emissions
from the vehicles. This, in turn, resulted in an increase in demand for Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether.
Furthermore, increasing gasoline fuel consumption in marine and in oil & gas sectors is expected to
boost the demand for methyl tertiary butyl ether over the forecast period. Also, increasing
preference for gasoline fuel exhibiting complete combustion and corresponding increase in demand
for high-octane fuels, accompanied with low exhaust emissions, is another factor that is expected to
fuel the growth of additives like an anti-knocking agent, cleaning additives, among others.

Moreover, increasing production of methyl methacrylate (MMA), butyl rubber and polyisobutylene,
among other products, across the globe, is expected to result in increase in demand for methyl
tertiary butyl ether. Apart from this, adverse environmental effects and increasing preference for
alternative compounds in the market is likely to hamper the growth of Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether
over the forecast period. Restrictions and regulations associated with use of Methyl Tertiary Butyl
Ether in many countries such as in certain Western European countries, the U.S., Japan, and Others
countries had significant negative impact on the market.
Global Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether market is mainly dominated by the Asia Pacific region (APAC)
in terms of production and consumption. Increasing vehicle parc and growth in maritime trade
especially in APAC region, is expected to result in increase in demand for Methyl Tertiary Butyl
Ether over the forecast period. In APAC region, key manufacturers are emphasizing on increasing
production capacity in order to cater to the rising demand for Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether from both
domestic and international markets. Furthermore, Europe and MEA are other prominent regions
which are expected to for Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether market owing to increasing demand for fuel
additive in gasoline. Moreover, in Europe, after 2005 government regulations over the aromatic
content in gasoline, resulted into increase in demand for Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether.
Government initiatives pertaining to use of biofuels in the transportation sector are, in turn,
expected to hamper the growth of Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether market during the forecast period. In
Latin America, there is significant demand for Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether in countries such as
Brazil, Argentina and Mexico owing to mandatory use of oxygenated compound in gasoline fuel.
This is expected to drive the growth of market over the forecast period. Growing refinery sector in
Latin America and Middle East & Africa regions wherein Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether is used as
anti-knocking agent is another factor that is expected to drive growth of MTBE market over the
