Some Key Highlights From the Report
The paints & coatings segment is expected to grow at a steady CAGR during the forecast period. Benzyl alcohol functions as a solvent and is an ingredient in lacquers, paints, epoxy resin coatings, and inks. Benzyl alcohol is the active component of several paint strippers because it works well as a solvent for coatings including paint, shellac, and lacquer. In addition, benzyl alcohol is a powerful solvent that is free of dangerous air pollutants when coupled with a viscous material to assist it adhere to coatings. Paint strippers that don't include Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs), such as methylene chloride paint strippers, are being replaced with benzyl alcohol and benzyl alcohol blends. In particular, it has been discovered that benzyl alcohol works well on standard aviation coatings (e.g., epoxy primer and polyurethane topcoat). These are major factors driving revenue growth of this segment.
The epoxy resins segment accounted for a significant revenue share in 2021. In compositions comprising cured epoxy, benzyl alcohol is a typical nonreactive ingredient. Benzyl alcohol is a key element in many chemical compounds used in the construction industry. It is utilized in paint strippers, epoxy resin systems, and cleaning products having a stripping effect due to its lower volatility and relatively high boiling point of 205 °C. Benzoyl alcohol also promotes flow by acting as a diluent, a viscosity reducer, and other similar functions because it is miscible with reactive elements. The hazardous substance information system of German legal accident insurance for the construction industry (BG BAU), GISBAU1, has determined exposure to benzyl alcohol when applying these products at construction sites, due to the material's significance for epoxy resin coatings, in the construction industry. 
The Europe market accounted for a significant revenue share in 2021. This is attributed to rising government initiatives and regulations regarding use of benzyl alcohol as excipients in medical products and also for evaluating safety and efficacy of benzyl alcohol product applications in various end-use industries, which are also contributing significantly to demand for benzyl alcohol, hence driving revenue growth of the market in this region. For instance, on 9 October 2017, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) approved use of benzoic acid and benzyl alcohol as excipients and are primarily used as solubilizing agents and/or preservatives in medicinal products, hence driving revenue growth of the market in this region.
