1,4 Butanediol Market by Technology (Reppe process, Davy process, Butadiene process, Propylene oxide process and others), and by Application (THF, PBT, GBL, PU, and Others) - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2019

The drivers of the industry are identified as high growth in developing regions, high demand in end-user industries, and high existing production capacities of 1,4-butanediol. Most of the production capacity of 1,4-butanediol exists in Asian region and high growth in their demand is mainly observed in developing countries. The high production capacities in the region also give flexibility to the manufacturers to scale up the production depending upon demand trends. The restraining factors are identified as raw material price volatility and high manufacturing cost of the 1,4-butanediol industry. The issues in the market are mainly pertaining to that of a maturing industry .i.e. steady growth in mature markets such as U.S. and Europe, and environmental concerns as well. The industry players are following strategies such as consolidation and capacity expansion to address to the demands generated by end-user industries and developing countries. Global BDO market is highly concentrated. This can be mainly attributed to the barriers existed in the sourcing of production technology and raw materials. Few handful companies are dominating global BDO market. Moreover these companies are captively using large portion of their BDO produce in the manufacture of their downstream products. This has restricted outspread of this market across the globe.

This study on 1,4-butanediol market estimates its global demand and market value for 2013 and projects the expected demand and market value of the same by 2019. As a part of the quantitative analysis, the study segments the global market by technology and applications at country level with current market estimation and forecast till 2019. The countries covered in the report are the U.S., Germany, France, U.K., The Netherlands, China, Japan, Taiwan, India, South Korea and Malaysia. The segmentation by technology includes Reppe process, davy process, butadiene process, propylene oxide process and others; while on the basis of its application, the segmentation includes THF, PBT, GBL, PU, and others.

As a part of qualitative analysis, the research provides report with a comprehensive review of key market drivers, restraints, opportunities, winning imperatives, and key issues in the market.

It also includes company profiling and competitive strategies adopted by various market players including BASF SE (Germany), Dairen Chemicals (Taiwan), LyondellBasell Chemicals (The Netherlands), Shanxi Sanwei Group (China), International Specialty Products (U.S.), Invista (U.S.), and Mitsubishi Chemicals (Japan), and so on.
