The article reports on the market trend of isopropanol (IPA) in the U.S. The use of IPA in the production of isopropylamines, household, cosmetic and personal-care products, and pharmaceuticals is increasing at about 2.8% per year. In the U.S., IPA is in a tight supply situation and pricing is at historical highs, reflecting the supply and price of propylene. Exports of the chemical have been flat for the past four years, averaging 730 million pound.
