1,4 butanediol Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Technology, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: Apr 2021

[Online Quarterly Update]Global 1,4 butanediol demand is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 7.55%. 1,4 butanediol (BDO) is a colourless viscous liquid and is one of the four stable isomers of butanediol. It is used in the manufacturing of other organic chemicals such as tetrahydrofuran (THF) having application in spandex fibres and urethane elastomers, gamma-butyrolactone (GBL) having application in electronics, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and high-performance polymers, polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) having application as engineering plastic, polyurethane (PU) and other derivatives. It is used as a solvent in organic synthesis, therefore has application in various end use industries such as automotive, pharmaceutical, electrical and electronics, artificial leather, and agriculture chemicals. Upcoming bio-based 1,4 butanediol is expected to push the demand further during the forecast period. I,4 butanediol is also used as a sedative therefore, it has addictive drug properties. Stringent government regulations regarding usage of 1,4 butanediol is expected to hamper demand growth during the forecast period. 
In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 in major global economies caused a sudden fall in demand for electronics, automobiles, and construction as these industries suffered from decrease in production due to lockdown. Fall in end use segment impacted the demand of global 1,4 butanediol market for the first half of 2020. Region wise, APAC region holds the major share of global demand for 1,4 butanediol with China leading the global market with sufficient production capacities. Several new companies are entering the market which are expected to fil the demand supply gaps for the forecast period.
