Diethylene glycol monobutyl ether can remove both water-insoluble greases and oils and water-soluble oils. This characteristic is expected to majorly drive the consumption of DEG monobutyl ether by companies engaged in formulating cleaning agents. Companies such as Procter and Gamble Company conducted several in-house tests based on the concentration of diethylene glycol monobutyl ether in hard surface cleaners and its subsequent effect on human health. As cited by the U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, the tests concluded that the exposure to DEG monobutyl ether within permissible levels at ambient room conditions is safe.

The product has substantial amount of consumption in paints, coatings, and inks manufacturing. It is broadly utilized as coalescent in formulating latex paints and paints for architectural applications. Latex paints dominate the paints industry followed by oil-based paints. Increased construction spending in emerging countries is expected to trigger the demand for paints and coatings in the building and construction sector, which in turn is expected to augment market growth.

Diethylene glycol monobutyl ether has limited evidence of severe human health hazard, however, it is observed that the ingestion of the chemical can cause severe health issues such as rapid heartbeat and breathing, low blood pressure, and muscle pain. Owing to these factors, multiple state laws have been stated for the disposal of the product. However, they are not stringent as the product can be recycled for reuse.
