1,6 Hexanediol Market – Market Overview
Strong demand growth of polyurethane across end use industries such as transportation, building & construction is expected to drive the global 1,6 hexanediol market over the years. Polyurethane being versatile polymer has gain significant progress as 1,6 hexanediol can be customized to suit the standards and safety of manufacturing the end use products. Increasing demand of rigid foam in applications such as insulators, sealants and flooring in construction industry is further anticipated to propel the 1,6 hexanediol demand for manufacturing polyurethane.
The properties of 1,6 Hexanediol are high porosity, good thermal stability, and good physical stability at high pressure, and polymer monoliths. Owing to aforementioned properties, 1,6 hexanediol is used in production of polyurethane, acrylates, paints & coatings, adhesives, polyester resins and unsaturated plasticizer among others. The polyurethane is the largest application segment in the global 1,6 hexanediol market. Some of protuberant factors driving polyurethane application segment are growing demand of flexible foam in furniture industry for manufacturing of carpet, seat cushions and mattress along with rise in consumer spending on modern interiors are expected to augment the growth of 1,6 hexanediol market. Polyurethane manufactured from 1,6 hexanediol offers high resistance of hydrolysis, high mechanical strength and low glass transition temperature. Thus, holds prominent share in global 1,6 hexanediol market.

High affinity towards water and colourless crystalline solid makes 1,6 hexanediol extensively used in paints & coating and acrylics, adhesives and plasticizers among others. 1,6 hexanediol based coatings possess high flexibility and surface hardness coupled with strong adhesion to substrates which also anticipated the product demand over the coming years. Moreover, increasing demand of industrial coatings owing to robust end use industry growth is expected to drive the market growth. Protective coatings are used on large scale in applications such as automotive, infrastructure and machinery & equipment’s in order to improve quality and aesthetic properties of the product. Hence, robust industry growth is further anticipated to augment the market growth.
However, product development in niche application such as alkyd resins and UV curable resins coupled with technology development for production of bio based raw material is expected to provide lucrative opportunity for industry market players. Nevertheless, there are some of the restraints in the 1,6 hexanediol market growth. 1,6 hexanediol is chemically active substance and hydroscopic in nature which needs to be taken care while transporting and loading the product. Moreover, precautions towards heath safety is major challenge for product manufacturers. This can hinder the market growth in future.
Asia Pacific is dominating region followed by North America and Europe. Growing consumption of polyurethane in automotive and construction industry is likely to propel the 1,6 Hexanediol market growth in this region. The key producers in this region are producing in house value added product of 1, 6 hexanediol to lower the overall cost of the end use products. For instance, companies such as Ube Industries and BASF are producing 1,6 hexanediol for manufacturing of polymer resins and polyol products. China is largest consuming country due to increased demand from end use industries and favourable government regulations. Europe region is expected to grow significantly owing to growing automotive industry which in turn drive the demand of polyurethane application. Countries such as Mexico and Brazil are anticipated to witnessed positive growth owing to increase in infrastructural development projects and rise in income level of middle class population.
