World Analysis - MTBE

Methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) is used principally as a blending agent in motor gasoline for its contained oxygen content and high octane value. Demand peaked in 2002, as countries like the United States, Japan, and Canada began phasing out MTBE in their domestic gasolines in favor of ethanol, due to government mandates. However, demand for MTBE continues to grow in China, Asia (except Japan and certain other countries), Mexico, the Middle East, and Central and Eastern Europe.

IHS Chemical World Analysis - MTBE examines these markets within their historical context, while also offering a ten-year outlook for the MTBE markets around the globe.
