The high demand for butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) in the food & beverage industry is projected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period due to the increased need for preservatives in packaged foods. For instance, the US Food and Drug Administration ranks BHT under the category of generally recognized as safe (GRAS) as a food preservative for utilization in an approved manner. Thus, the increased preference as a food preservative by the food and beverage industry is expected to accelerate the butylated hydroxytoluene market statistics during the forecast period.

Additionally, the growing production of plastics especially thermosetting resins and thermoplastics are also anticipated to fuel the demand for butylated hydroxytoluene due to reduced risks to oxidation in the production procedure. For instance, in 2019, the report published by the Plastic Atlas stated that global plastic production is projected to increase by over 465 million tons. Thus, the growing demand for plastics in multiple industries such as automotive, packaging, agriculture, and construction is expected to support the growth of the market growth owing to the stabilization of plastics in industry applications.  In the context of the region, North America is anticipated to contribute to the market growth during the projected period. The factors such as increased consumption of packaged foods among the population combined with the large presence of structured retail channels are estimated to accelerate the industry growth in the North American region.

Market Dynamics:

Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), also referred to as dibutyl hydroxytoluene, is a chemical compound formed from the reaction of 4-methyl phenol with 2-methyl propene. The chemical is widely used in multiple industries such as plastic, food & beverage, cosmetics, and others due to its antioxidant properties.

Driver:

The wide applicability of butylated hydroxytoluene as a food preservative and increased medicinal use for the treatment of ailments such as acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and genital herpes coupled with the augmented demand from polymer industry as an antioxidant owing to the reduced risk to factors such as loss of tensile strength and flexibility, change of color, surface deterioration, and reduced impact resistance drive the growth of the butylated hydroxytoluene market. Also, the surging use of BHT in the production of animal feed, the cosmetic industry, and the automotive sector for increasing the shelf-life of the products are the major factors that accelerate the market growth during the forecast period.

Restraint:

The strict regulations in terms of excessive usage of synthetic antioxidants in food products due to multiple health risks such as carcinogenic activity, liver enlargement, allergic reactions, organ system toxicity, and others hamper the market growth. Additionally, the availability of safer food additives as alternative to BHT also hampers the market growth during the forecast period owing to the rising consumer preference for natural and safe active ingredients into the product.

COVID-19 Impact:

The butylated hydroxytoluene industry has been significantly impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic in many different parts of the world. The factors such as transportation restrictions, uncertain consumer demand, limited availability of raw materials, and low rubber and plastic production are the major impacts of COVID-19 which hampered the market growth. Shipments were impacted during the initial lockdown due to the trade restrictions and the closure of a manufacturing facility owing to the government-imposed lockdowns. However, the circumstances have stabilized and as a result, it is determined that COVID-19’s overall impact on the industry is moderate. Post covid-19, there was a positive impact on the market growth due to the increased demand of the chemical as antioxidant in manufacturing processes of major industries such as the automotive, construction, and polymer industry.
