  • Country: Global
1,4 Butanediol is an organic chemical compound that is widely used in chemical industry for production of plastics, solvents, fibres, etc. It is also named as 1,4-Butylene glycol or Butane-1,4-diol. It is colorless, odorless and viscous in nature and has a high boiling point of 230 oC. It is a stable isomer of butanediol. Reppe Process is used for the manufacture of 1,4 Butanediol which involves reaction of formaldehyde and acetylene. It can also be manufactured by Davy process or by using propylene oxide as a raw material. It is used as a recreational drug, known by names such as One Four Bee, Liquid Fantasy and One Comma Four.


The end users are mostly end use industry sectors like Construction & Mining, Power Generation and Cement Manufacturing. Chemical plants involved in the manufacturing of Gamma Butyrolactone (GBL), Polyurethanes, Tetrahydrofuran, Poly Butylene Terephthalate (PBT), etc. also make large use of 1,4 Butanediol.

Market Dynamics

The major growth driving factor for global 1,4 Butanediol market is the growth of end use industries. The rapid industrial growth in countries of Asia Pacific region is expected to drive the demand for 1,4 Butanediol. China has the largest production capacity for this chemical and has thus emerged as a major producer of 1,4 Butanediol. These factors mainly drive the demand for the chemical.

Market Segmentation
