Global 1,3 butadiene (bd) market Trends 2014 to 2020 by Grand View Research, Inc
Post on 03-Apr-2016
DESCRIPTIONGrowing demand for ABS on account of increasing demand for high performance plastics from automotive industry is also expected to have a positive influence on the global market. Volatile raw material prices coupled with stringent regulatory scenario is expected to remain key challenges for market participants. In order to overcome such challenges, industry has shifted its focus towards developing bio-based routes to manufacture 1,3 butadiene.
Global 1,3 Butadiene (BD) Market By Application (SBR,
Butadiene Rubber, SB Latex, ABS, HMDA, NBR) Expected To
Reach USD 33.01 Billion By 2020: Grand View Research, Inc
The global market for 1,3 butadiene (http://www.grandviewresearch.com/industry-
analysis/butadiene-market) is expected to reach USD 33.01 billion by 2020, according to a
new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Growing demand for tires (both OEM and
replacement) on account of an upturn in the automotive industry, particularly in China, India
and Brazil, is expected to remain a key driving factor for the global market. In addition,
growing demand for ABS on account of increasing demand for high performance plastics
from automotive industry is also expected to have a positive influence on the global market.
Volatile raw material prices coupled with stringent regulatory scenario is expected to remain
key challenges for market participants. In order to overcome such challenges, industry has
shifted its focus towards developing bio-based routes to manufacture 1,3 butadiene.
Butadiene rubber emerged as the leading application segment for BD and accounted for
30.8% of total market volume in 2013. More than two third of butadiene rubber goes for
manufacturing tires, thus global tire industry dynamics are a key factor for the growth of this
market. HMDA (hexamethylenediamine) is expected to be the fastest growing application
market for BD, at an estimated CAGR of 6.8% from 2014 to 2020. Growing demand for
nylon 66 resin in major end-use industries such as automotive and electronics is expected to
fuel the demand for BD in HMDA.

Further key findings from the study suggest:
Global BD market volume was 10,500 kilo tons in 2013 and is expected to reach 14,179.9
kilo tons by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 4.4% from 2014 to 2020.
Asia Pacific emerged as the largest regional market for BD and accounted for 53.6% of total
market volume in 2013. Growth of automotive industry particularly in emerging markets of
China and India is expected to remain a key driving factor for the regional market. Asia
Pacific is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2014 to 2020.
Growth of major end-use industries such as automotive and construction in Latin America
and Middle East is expected to push BD demand for these regions to grow at an estimated
CAGR of 8% from 2014 to 2020.
Naphtha remained the primary petrochemical feedstock for the production of BD. However,
emergence of coal based ammonia and methanol facilities in Asia is expected to provide
alternative sources for the production of 1,3 butadiene..
The global market is moderately concentrated with the top four companies including Dow
Chemical Company, Shell, Lyondell Basell and Shanxi Sanwei accounting for over 55% of
the global market in 2013. Other companies in the market include XioJiang Markor, Sinopec
and TPC Group, Inc.
