Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC579

Introduction

1,4 butanediol, additionally named as 1,4-Butylene glycol, or Butane-1,4-diol is a natural substance compound which finds a wide-scale application in manufacturing of filaments, plastics, solvents and so on among different applications. 1,4 butanediol is a dry and thick substance compound with generally high breaking point as that of butane. This natural compound is one of the steady structures or isomers of butanediol. A standout amongst the most generally utilized production process, the Reppe Process, includes reaction of acetylene with formaldehyde. On the other hand, it is additionally produced by Davy process with maleic anhydride which is used as crude material. Different methods for the manufacture of 1,4 butanediol include utilization of organic courses or the utilization of propylene oxide as a crude material. Significant applications of 1,4 Butanediol include production of Poly Butylene Terephthalate (PBT), Tetrahydrofuran, Gamma Butyrolactone (GBL), polyurethanes, among the others.

Market Dynamics

Increasing awareness about the benefits of 1,4 butanediol among the consumers is anticipated to drive its demand throughout the forecast period. The rising disposable income of consumers is also expected to boost the growth of global 1,4 butanediol market over the forecast period. Another major reason for the rise in demand for 1,4 butanediol is the growing environmental concerns about the depletion of non-renewable resources such as natural gas and crude oil. The major companies in this market have adopted the strategy of product development as the target consumers demand innovations in this market. The emerging markets such as India and China are anticipated to boost the demand for polyurethane thus, driving the growth of overall market. The volatility in raw material prices is expected to hamper the growth of global 1,4 butanediol market over the forecast period. In addition to this, the high manufacturing cost is another factor restraining the market growth.

Market Classification and Overview
