The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically affected various industries in terms of sales and operations owing to many factors such as extended lockdowns across different regions, restrictions imposed on international trades, shutdown of manufacturing units, bans on travel, disintegration in supply chain, and shortage in the supply of raw materials. The food & beverages and chemical industry are among the significant sectors that suffered from severe disruptions, such as supply chain restriction and production plants shutdown, because of the COVID-19 outbreak. The shutdown of various plants and factories in leading regions such as North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific has hindered the global supply chain, manufacturing activities, delivery schedules, and various products sales. All these factors affected the both the chemical and food & beverage industries in a negative manner. Ketones are often utilized as solvents, chemical intermediates, and as catalyst in the chemical industry. They also have great demand from paints & coating, adhesives, printing inks, and similar industries. Also, these are utilized in the electroplating industry as cold-cleaning solvents, vapor degreasing solvents, and laboratory chemicals. Ketones are also used in the production of dietary supplements, protein shakes & powders, and pharmaceuticals. Disruptions in terms of sourcing of raw materials from suppliers and temporarily closures of manufacturing bases due to indefinite lockdowns and temporary quarantines have restrained the growth of the market during the pandemic. However, the pandemic has generated the need for healthy living among the consumers. Therefore, the consumers have shifted their attention toward personal health and nutritional diet. Thus, the demand for weight-management products and ketone supplements surged during the pandemic, directly driving the ketones market. Sales have been slow in the first quarter of 2020, as many stores have closed. However, businesses are gaining ground as previously imposed limitations are being eased across various locations. Moreover, the introduction of COVID-19 vaccines by governments of different countries has further eased out the situation leading to rise in business activities across the world. The food & beverage processing industries are recovering their losses by opening their production units and starting the operations with half of the capacities. These factors are expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period.

Ketones are versatile organic compounds having multiple applications across various industries. Acetone, methyl ethyl ketone, methyl isobutyl ketone, and diisobutyl ketone are among the important ketones that are commonly used in the manufacturing of resins, plastics, paints and lacquers, varnishes, coatings, rubber products, and other industrial products. Acetone is used in nail polish removers. It is commonly used to degrease wool and degum silk in the textile industry. Acetone is often employed as a solvent in the manufacturing of lacquers used for automotive and furniture finishing. It can also be used to reduce the viscosity of lacquer solutions. The paints and coatings industry accounts for more than half of the demand generated for methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) products, as these materials can be used to produce a low-viscosity solution without impairing their film attributes. The automobile, electric goods, and furniture industries all employ these lacquers. Lacquers are excellent surface coating solvents and are essential in the creation of high-solid, low-emission coatings. MEKs are also used in the production of polymers and textiles, as well as printing inks, adhesives, insecticides, and rubber-based industrial cements. Ketones have wide applications in the food & beverage, and pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals industries, wherein they are used in the manufacturing of supplements, energy drinks, ready-to-drink (RTD) shakes, and shake powders, among other products. Ketone-based food products and supplements help in the weight loss process as they trigger the use of fats deposited in the body. Furthermore, the growing popularity of ketones as a fractionating agent in the extraction of oils and fats, and rising demand for these compounds for sterilizing medical equipment owing to their ability to kill germs is expected to further drive the market growth during the forecast period. Ketones are also used in the manufacturing of personal care and cosmetic products owing to their pleasant odor. Moreover, they are used as chemical intermediates in various pharmaceutical product and chemical manufacturing plants. Thus, continuously rising demand for ketones from various industries, such as automotive, paints and coatings, adhesives, resin manufacturing, food & beverages, pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals, and personal care and cosmetics, is contributing to the ketones market growth.
Based on form, the ketones market is bifurcated into solid and liquid. The liquid segment accounted for a larger market share in 2020 and the solid segment is expected to register a higher CAGR in the market during the forecast period. Liquid ketones are being used as solvents and catalysts in the manufacturing of coatings, adhesives, printing inks, chemical intermediaries, perfumes, lacquers, paint removers, lubricating agents, and plastics and resins, among other products. Acetone, diisobutyl ketone, methyl ethyl ketone, methyl isobutylene ketone, etc., are the most commonly available liquid ketones in market. Liquid ketones are known for their distinctive pleasant smell. Ketone esters are used in the liquid form in dietary supplements. Growing demand for liquid ketones from chemical manufacturing companies is a prime contributor to the growth of the market for liquid segment.
Based on application, the ketones market is segmented into food & beverage, dietary supplements, personal care & cosmetics, and others. The other application segment accounted for the largest market share in 2020, and the dietary supplements segment is expected to register the highest CAGR in the market during the forecast period. Other applications of ketones are chemical and industrial applications. Ketones such as methyl ethyl ketone, methyl isobutyl ketone, di-isobutyl ketone, and acetone are widely used chemical intermediates in the chemicals industry. Acetone is widely used as a chemical intermediate in the production of acrylic plastics, polycarbonates, and epoxy resins. Moreover, diisobutyl ketone is used as a chemical intermediate in the synthesis of diisobutyl carbinol. Additionally, methyl ethyl ketones are used as a chemical intermediate in the manufacturing of certain pharmaceutical products. Acrylic plastics and epoxy resins are extensively used in automotive and signage applications. Diisobutyl carbinol is used in the synthesis of hydrogen peroxide, lacquers, shellac, printing inks, vinyl-chloride-acetate resins, urea-melamine resins, and alkyd resins. Ketones are used as industrial solvents in the manufacturing of paints and coatings, adhesives, automotive finishes, rubbers, textiles, varnishes, printing inks, etc. In the coatings industry, they are widely used as solvents in the production of nitrocellulose and other cellulose esters, resins, and vinyl chloride-vinyl acetate. These solvents can be employed as active solvents or diluents, and they are frequently used in conjunction with other solvents. Methyl ethyl ketones are commonly used as a solvent in rubber manufacturing. Further, ketones are used as a fractionating agent in the extraction of oils and fats. They are used to sterilize medical equipment such as surgical instruments, hypodermic needles, syringes, and dental instruments.
