Butadiene Market Value and Growth:

The butadiene market size has been estimated to Grow12,432 kilotons in 2021, and the market is expected to reach a CAGR of over 3.5% during the forecast period (2021-2026).

Butadiene is an organic component that is in colorless form and is a bonding medium between two vinyl groups. Butadiene is a molecule that contains two carbon atoms and is stirred as a total monomer in the manufacture of synthetic rubber. It buys the properties of a rubber and can be by obtaining thermal decomposition of amyl alcohol. It is produced for several processes as the extraction of hydrocarbons, ethanol or butenes and the dehydrogenation of n-butane. Some examples of applications of butadiene are polybutadiene rubber, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, and nitrile rubber.

Butadiene Market Trends:

The automotive industry relies on PBR for applications other than tires, such as hoses, belts, seals and other automotive components, because of its high resistance to low temperatures. However, the recent decline in car production and sales is likely to hamper the growth of the market. Western Europe and North America are the second most consuming regions of PBR. In the third quarter of 2019, around 67.47 million vehicles were produced worldwide, and this value reached around 52 million vehicles in the third quarter of 2020, registering a decline rate of around 23%. On the supply side, PBR factories in Asia is racing to meet strong demand. Deep water supplies from Europe and the Middle East are also expected to flow to Asia to help meet strong demand. Due to all these factors, the butadiene market is expected to grow globally during the forecast period. The automotive industry relies on PBR for applications other than tires, such as hoses, belts, seals and other automotive components, because of its high resistance to low temperatures. PBR consumption is influenced  by Northeast Asia, particularly China. Western Europe and North America are the second most consuming regions of PBR. On the supply side, PBR factories in Asia are operating at full capacity to meet high demand. Deep water supplies from Europe and the Middle East are also expected to flow to Asia to help meet strong demand. The main global producers of PBR are Lanxess, Korea Kumho, Michelin, Ncgromcx, Nippon Zeon, Petkim, Turkey, Petrochim, RcpsonOuimica, Taiwan Synthetic, Ube and Romania, and CIS.

Recent Developments in the Butadiene  Market:

  • In August 2018, Saudi Arabian Oil Co. agreed to acquire the remaining 50% of the ARLANXEO joint venture from LANXESS, which increased its C4 chemicals business, including butadiene.

  • In April 2021, Trinseo and ETB will collaborate on the development of biobased 1,3 butadiene and ETB to Collaborate on Development of Bio-Based 1,3 Butadiene

Butadiene Market Drivers:

Growing demand from end-use industries is the vital factor for market growth, improving functionality at lower cost and increasing number of cars in the world are the major factors, among others, which are boosting the butadiene market. . The rapid growth in automobile production is expected to boost the market. Butadiene is mainly used in the production of styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) and polybutadiene rubber (PBR), which is used to produce tires and plastics.

Butadiene Market Restraints:

The recent decline in car production and sales is likely to hamper market growthThe hazardous effects caused by butadiene are expected to hamper the growth of the studied market.

Opportunities in the Butadiene Market:

The innovation of biobutadiene to manufacture products such as synthetic rubber, thermoplastic elastomers, nylon, etc., is likely to create opportunities for the market in the coming years.

Challenges in the Butadiene  Market:

The volatility of commodity prices, combined with a strict regulatory environment, should remain major challenges for market players. To overcome these challenges, the industry has focused on developing bio-based pathways to manufacture 1,3-butadiene.

Butadiene Market MarketRegional Analysis:

The Butadiene Market Report includes the segmentation of Regions:

  • North America 

  • Europe 

  • Asia Pacific

  • Latin America 

  • Middle East & Africa 

The Asia-Pacific region dominated the global butadiene market. The Asia-Pacific downstream market has experienced a great boom in recent years as the demand for butadiene has increased rapidly due to its needs. China has made important milestones in shale gas exploration, both in terms of capacity and drilling techniques, making it one of the world's leading suppliers of shale gas. India, with the support of the United States, is working to develop exploration for shale gas in its coastal regions, and American companies are joining the exploration process.The Krishna-Godavari Basin, located in eastern India, contains the country's largest shale gas reserves, spanning over 7,800 gross square miles, with a potential area of ​​4,340 square miles . Apart from this, the Asia-Pacific region is the world's largest producer of vehicles. Butadiene is used to make intermediate products like styrene-butadiene (SBR) and others, which are also used to make automotive products like tires, conveyor belts, etc. In 2020, the total volume of tires produced in India was around 191.98 million, with a growth rate of around 7.5% over the previous year, which in turn is boosting the butadiene market. By the third quarter of 2019, China had produced 18.17 million vehicles and reached 16.96 million vehicles in the third quarter of 2020, registering a decline rate of around 6.66%, which in turn resulted in a decrease in the consumption of parts composed of styrene-butadiene. (SBR) and others thereby creating a negative effect on the growth of the regional butadiene market.

Impact of COVID-19 on Butadiene Market:

In view of the ongoing pandemic scenario, automotive manufacturing units and building construction projects have been temporarily halted. Hence, this has negatively impacted the demand for styrene-butadiene and polybutadiene rubber, which is used in tires, construction crack fillers, concrete admixtures, etc., which has decreased the demand of butadiene market. However, the use of protective nitrile rubber gloves has increased in the current situation, thus boosting the market demand for butadiene.
