Research and Markets: Global and Chinese 1,4-Butanediol (BDO) Industry Report 2014-2017

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/m4qqdm/global_and) has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese 1,4-Butanediol (BDO) Industry Report, 2014-2017." report to their offering.

As an important organic and fine chemical, 1,4-butanediol (BDO) is widely used in pharmaceutical, chemical, textile and household chemical fields.

The BDO production process on a global scale is dominated by BASF, U.S.-based ISP and Invista, U.K.-based Davy, Japan's Mitsubishi Chemical, and DCC. In spite of relatively small BDO capacity, Invista, Mitsubishi Chemical and Davy with core production technologies and patents are playing an important role in the global BDO industry by technology transfer or other means.

At present, the BDO in Mainland China is mostly manufactured via reppe process and maleic anhydride process, of which maleic anhydride-process BDO makes up roughly 27.5% of capacity. From 2012 onward, due to the stubbornly high price of maleic anhydride, maleic anhydride-process BDO facilities were in the red, basically shut down. While reppe-process BDO facilities are in relatively steady operation, but the profit margin thereof has been sharply reduced.

In the next few years, more new BDO capacities were to be built in Mainland China as it is planned, totaling 1.4 million tons or so, however, against the excess capacity and the sluggish market demand, some projects will probably be put aside or cancelled, and the growth rate of BDO capacity will slacken. In the meantime, the concentration of China's BDO industry is expected to increase step by step. Mainstream manufacturers such as Markor Chem and Shanxi Sanwei will continue to expand their BDO capacities and the BDO facilities of some small producers will be gradually eliminated under cost pressure.

Global and China 1,4-Butanediol (BDO) Industry Report, 2014-2017 by ResearchInChina mainly highlights the followings:

  • Supply & demand, competitive landscape, price trend, etc. of global BDO industry;
