1, 4, Butanediol Market drivers Polyurethane is in high demand
1,4 Butanediol (also known as BDO/1.4 BD) is a flexible, medium-sized, liquid diol that has primary hydroxyl reactive properties. It is a linear structure which allows the production of polyurethane adhesives (chain extension and hard segment) with outstanding properties. The chain extender for urethane elastomers is 14BG diol. They are highly resistant to heat, oils and impact, have excellent mechanical properties, and high resistance to damage. Polyurethane is in high demand in electronics, construction, and automotive. To meet these changing needs, a variety of PU products has been created.
Production of Bio-Based BDO
Bio-BDO can also be used in (bio) fabrics as a solvent and building block. Bio-BDO can be used as a building block and solvent in (bio) fabrics and elastic fibers. It is 100% biodegradable. Bio-BDO is an affordable alternative to petroleum-based feedstocks given the current global oil prices. This is why bio-BDO has become so popular among businesses. It is possible to make BDO products using green bio-based technologies due to the high volatility of fossil fuel-based materials and increasing emphasis on climate mitigation technology. Many companies are exploring bio-based chemical process technologies for low-cost sugars. This will help reduce demand for fossil fuels. To increase market share, green chemistry and sustainable feedstocks should be encouraged. Green chemistry is used to create chemicals by government agencies such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
- Fluctuating prices of raw materials such as butadiene and maleic anhydride used in the production of 1,4 butanediol.
- Stringent environmental regulations regarding the production, use, and disposal of 1,4 butanediol.
- Growing competition from alternative products such as bio-based succinic acid and adipic acid, which can replace 1,4 butanediol in some applications.
- Potential health risks associated with the use and handling of 1,4 butanediol, which may lead to increased safety regulations and restrictions.
- Volatility in the global economy affecting the demand and supply of 1,4 butanediol.
- Dependence of the 1,4 butanediol market on the polyester and polyurethane industries, which can be affected by factors such as changing consumer preferences and economic conditions.
