COVID-19 Impact

Dip in Automotive Production Marred Business Outlook

The influence of the COVID-19 outbreak was pronounced across end-use sectors, including the automotive industry. The shutdown of assembly plants, along with the supply gap of the compound, will continue to challenge leading companies vying to expand their portfolios. Meanwhile, a notable shift towards environmentally friendly products and rigorous government regulations will augur well for the business forecast.


Strong Demand for Polyurethane (PU) to Boost Industry Growth

In terms of application, the butynediol market is segregated into gamma-butyrolactone (GBL), tetrahydrofuran, polyurethane (PU), polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) and others. Based on geography, the market is segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East & Africa and Latin America.

Industry players expect 1,4 butanediol to play an invaluable role in creating polyurethanes, partly due to high purity and low moisture content. Robust demand for PU across the end-use sectors will encourage leading companies to expand their footprint.
