India Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT) Market: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Technology, Demand & Supply, End Use, Sales Channel, Region, Competition, Trade, Customer & Price Intelligence Market Analysis, 2015-2030
Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT) resin demand in India stood at 27.20 thousand tonnes in 2018 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.25% in the forecast period. PBT is an efficient thermoplastic produced by the utilization of 1,4 Butanediol, Dimethyl Terephthalate and Purified Terephthalic Acid. Electrical and electronic industry accounts for over 60 per cent of the total domestic demand for PBT followed by automotive industry. Owing to its good processability and high heat resistance, PBT is widely consumed for manufacturing of sockets, seat belts, bonnet components and chip sockets in automotive industry. Whereas it is profoundly consumed for manufacturing of connectors, cable enclosures, capacitors etc. in the electrical and electronic industry.
Outbreak of Coronavirus in the final quarter of FY 20 has led to an adverse fluctuation in demand for PBT from Indian automotive industry. Despite of implementation of BS VI fuel emission norm requiring production of BS VI fuel compatible vehicles by April 2020, the demand for PBT in the automotive industry has significantly declined on prolong economic slowdown aggravated by the temporary production turnarounds in companies, taken up to grapple high inventories and low revenue as an effect of low buying sentiments in wake of Coronavirus outbreak. However, the slumped demand for PBT from automotive industry is anticipated to recover in the coming years on gradual recovery in the Indian economy leading to enhanced annual income of the masses. In contrast, the coronavirus outbreak has been positively affected the demand for PBT from electrical and electronic industry by increasing the domestic manufacturing to combat to limited supply of raw materials and finished goods from major exporting countries as an outcome of disruption in worldwide trade dynamics. The demand is expected to propel further in the coming years as government is laying high stress in enhancing domestic manufacturing in various industrial sectors to consolidate high revenues for assisting the economy. In addition, increasing demand for PBT in extrusion applications is expected to emerge as a potential segment for outgrowing the demand for PBT in the forecast period. In addition to various end user industries, demand for PBT varies with regions too. North and West region accounts for the major consumption of PBT due to the presence of a good number of end-user industries along with a vast distribution channel.
PBT is being manufactured by Toray Industries in India with a plant capacity of 5 KTPA. Owing to the limited production of the product in the country, imports primarily cater to the PBT demand in India. To establish efficient production base for PBT in the country, there is a need to encourage new manufacturers to emerge in the domestic market.
