“1,4 – Butanediol (BDO), Polytetramethylene Ether Glycol (PTMEG) And Spandex Market” regulatory policies encouraging lightweight composites to reduce carbon emissions from vehicles are vital factors for BDO industry development over the forecast period.
The market is likely to be driven by increasing butanediol demand from cosmetics, medicines, textiles, engineering plastics and automotive applications. About 50% BDO is used in tetrahydrofuran (THF) production, which is an intermediate chemical for polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMEG). PTMEG itself is further processed to manufacture spandex/elastane/lycra, which finds application in several end-use industries that include textiles and automotive interiors.

Further key findings from the study suggest:
Global BDO market size was 1,924.6 kilo tons in 2014 and is expected to reach 2,913.1 kilo tons by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2015 to 2022. THF was the largest application segment for BDO and accounted for about 50% of total revenue in 2014. High demand for THF as an intermediate chemical to PTMEG production is expected to drive its growth over the forecast period.
Development of bio-based spandex is also expected to boost consumption mainly in emerging markets, especially for textiles and sportswear applications. Increasing application scope owing to advanced processing technologies and strategic initiatives among major corporations is another driving factor for the industry.
