1,4-BDO is an important intermediary raw material in manufacturing elastic fibers, plastics, spandex fibers, and films. Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT) is a synthetic thermoplastic polymer, manufactured from 1,4 – Butanediol. It is widely used in the automotive industry such as automotive interior and exterior parts include gas tanks, doors, seat components, bumpers, airbags, rims, gas tanks, under bonnet parts, exterior rims, etc due to its higher durability, hydrophobicity, and chemical resistance. The rising demand for lightweight vehicles and continuous research for its applications are the major driving forces of PBT which in turn boosts the demand for BDO.


The rise in urbanization, improving the standard of living, and financing options are some of the major factors for the growing demands for automobiles in developing and developed countries. With constant innovations in technologies like AI and ML algorithms, automobile companies are constantly optimizing the efficiency and safety of vehicles which drives the demand for different parts that are produced from PBT. Cumulatively all these factors are majorly responsible for the demand for different automotive parts globally and hence increase the market of 1-4 Butanediol.


In spite of border closures, travel restrictions, and lockdown measures, the industry's top focus during the first several months of 2020 was to ensure deliveries of vital chemicals into supply chains deemed "important" during the pandemic breakout, such as the medical and food sectors. Following an increase in demand during the first semester of the year, the manufacturing output of these industry subsectors stayed constant or even increased.


Due to the relative recovery in consumption during the summer and firms' ability to modify their operations to meet governmental sanitary and distance criteria, demand as well as chemical output surged starting in September. The third quarter had a growth of 6.1% from the second.


Europe 1,4 Butanediol Market Report Highlights

  • Tetrahydrofuran is typically produced by hydrogenating or dehydrating furan or 1,4-butanediol. The reaction of 1,4-butanediol with an acid catalyst is followed by the removal of water from the water-containing reaction product, such as tetrahydrofuran, to dehydrate 1,4-butanediol.
  • In terms of end-use, the automotive segment dominated the market. PBT, which is used to make automobile components, is frequently produced using 1,4 butanediol. PBT is used in a variety of vehicle industries, including energy absorption, reduced weight, shock resistance for bumpers, reducing the danger of gas tanks exploding, seat belts, accelerators, doorway and seat components, subsystems, cushions, under-bonnet parts, external trimmings, and more.
  • Some of the major key players includes BASF SE, Alfa Aesar, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Ashland, Lyondell Basell, Arpadis Benelux NV, TCI Europe NV, Novamont, Möller Chemie GmbH & Co. KG, INOES, VladaChem GmbH among others.
