Global Butadiene Extraction Market Highlights over 2022 – 2031

The global butadiene extraction market is estimated to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing use of butadiene for making synthetic rubber, and thermoplastics. Butadiene is a highly flammable gas, which is extracted from heavier hydrocarbons. The growing demand for butadiene amongst various sectors, especially automotive sector, is estimated to primarily boost the market growth. Butadiene is used to make tires for vehicles, along with its extensive use as adhesive in automobiles. Such factors are estimated to raise the demand for butadiene extraction. Moreover, growing production and sales of automobiles, across the globe, is further anticipated to promote the market growth. According to the data by the International Energy Agency (IEA), in 2019, the total car sales reached 25 million cars in China, 17 million in United States, 4 million in India, 17 million in European Union, 4 million in Japan, and 21 million in the rest of the world.  

Butadiene Extraction Market

The market is segmented by process into catalytic dehydrogenation, aqueous NMP, Houdry catadiene, and others, out of which, the Houdry catadiene segment is anticipated to hold the notable share in the global butadiene extraction market over the forecast period. Houdry catadiene is one of the most common extraction process, owing to its high commercial viability. This process includes catalytic oxy-dehydrogenation of n-butene to butadiene using aluminum silicate catalysts. The low cost and high production scale of Houdry catadiene is estimated to boost the segment growth.  CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Chemicals (% of Value Added in Manufacturing) – 2016-2018

The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favourable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labour as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
