The major industrial applications of MEK include paints and coatings, printing inks, plastics and textiles among others. The revenue generated by the global MEK market was 2,254.1 million in 2012 which is expected to reach USD 3,064.5 million by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2013 to 2019.

Paints and coatings applications segment was the largest market segment of MEK in 2012. The paints and coatings segment of the MEK market generated revenue of USD 1,223.0 million in 2012.The rapidly growing infrastructure sector especially in developing nations is driving the paints and coatings market, which in turn is expected to fuel the demand for MEK in the next few years. Printing inks, plastics and textiles are the other major application segments of MEK. The demand for printing inks is likely to grow due to the rising demand from publishing and packaging industries among others. The increasing number of applications of MEK such as adhesives for PVC pipes, rubber based cements, resins thinners, lacquers in furniture industry and extraction solvent for pharmaceuticals among others, is expected to drive the MEK market in future.
