Butadiene Market & Its Derivatives - Trends and Forecasts to 2018 - New Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Nov 12 2013

Butadiene or 1,3-butadiene is a colorless gas that is condensed to liquid just below minus 4.0degC and is highly reactive. It is soluble in alcohol and ether, but insoluble in water and is polymerized easily in the presence of oxygen. It is obtained as a byproduct of the manufacture of ethylene and propylene by selective distillation of cracked naphtha or gas oil stream. It is an important feedstock to manufacture various chemicals and materials that further serve diverse industries that include automotive, paints, textile, appliance manufacturing, etc. Its main application segments include SBR, Polybutadiene Rubber (PBR), Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene Resins (ABS), Styrene Butadiene Latex (SB Latex), Adiponitrile, and Nitrile Rubber (NR).

This market has grown considerably during the past few years and is expected to grow at a rapid pace in the next five years, mainly driven by growing demand in the Asia-Pacific region. Asia-Pacific is the biggest consumer of butadiene, followed by Europe and North America, which consumed more than half of the total global demand in 2012. China is the biggest consumer of butadiene, and is also among the fastest growing markets with a CAGR of about 6.2% from 2013 to 2018. The European and North American markets are comparatively mature with a demand growth well below the average market growth.
