DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/cxvvgq/butadiene_and) has announced the addition of the "Global Butadiene & Derivatives Market Report 2013 - 2018" report to their offering.

Butadiene or 1,3-butadiene is a colorless gas that is condensed to liquid just below minus 4.0°C 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.

Butadiene is an important feedstock to manufacture chemicals and materials that further serve diverse industries including automotive, paints, textile, appliance manufacturing and others. Its main application segments include Styrene-Butadiene Rubber 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, 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.
