The Global Butadiene Market Has Reached Approximately 11.5 Million Tonnes in 2021 and is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 4.75% During the Forecast Period Until 2035

The global Butadiene market has reached approximately 11.5 million tonnes in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.75% during the forecast period until 2035. A contract for the construction of Egypt's Tahrir Petrochemical Complex for US $7.5 billion has been finalized. The Red Sea National Refining and Petrochemicals Company and General Authority signed this contract for Suez Canal Economic Zone. The project will be constructed on 3.56 million square meters of land in the industrial district of Ain Sokhna, close to the Gulf of Suez, Egypt. This plant is expected to have a capacity of producing multiple chemicals including 250,000 tonnes of Butadiene annually.

Butadiene or 1,3-butadiene is a colorless gas that smells like gasoline. It can be produced by dehydrogenation of butanes or by cracking of petroleum derivates likes it distillates at high temperature. In presence of a catalyst, Butadiene turns into a stretchy elastic which displays properties like rubber. Butadiene is primarily used for the synthesis of rubbers and plastics that includes Styrene Butadiene Rubber, Poly Butadiene Rubber and Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene. It shows excellent properties such as elasticity and insulation to heat and electricity. Butadiene has various industrial applications such as rubber insulators, inner tubes, golf balls, industrial components, conveyer belts, automobile tires, shoes soles, and others.

The primary driver of Butadiene global market is for the synthesis of rubbers and plastics which are further utilized for the manufacture of general use commodities. In 2021, approximately 55% of global Butadiene was utilized by the Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) Industry. Since butadiene is a key raw material used to make synthetic rubber, demand for tires, footwear, and consumer goods is driving up butadiene production and consumption. SBR is used for a variety of industrial purposes, including as wire insulation and cabling, belting, hoses, gaskets, and seals that are resistant to abrasion and metal bonding. Commercial applications for SBR polymer include everything from shoe soles, carpet backing, and molded products. Furthermore, Butadiene can be added to other plastics to improve their elasticity. The global Butadiene market is expected to reach 21 million tonnes by the forecast period.

Based on demand, the Asia Pacific is dominating the Butadiene market with a demand of approximately 6.2 million thousand tonnes in 2021. The main driving factor is Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR), which is made from butadiene and blended with rubber to make tires. The demand of personal use vehicles and commercial vehicles is anticipated to drive the Butadiene market in the forecast period. Furthermore, Asia Pacific is leading as the producer in the Asia Pacific region. Based on production, approximately 27% of the global Butadiene took place in Asia Pacific region in 2021.

Based on the end-user industry, the global Butadiene market is segmented into different industrial sectors that include Styrene Butadiene Rubber, Poly Butadiene Rubber, Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, and others. The Styrene Butadiene Rubber industry is the dominating the Butadiene. Poly Butadiene Rubber and Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene are also contributing to the growing demand of Butadiene in the forecast period.

Major players in the production of Global Butadiene are TPC Group, Petrochina, Haldia Peterochemicals Limited, Lyondell Basell, Formosa Plastics Corporation, Shell Chemicals, Braskem1, Sabina Petrochemical, Ineos, Evonik Industries AG, ExxonMobil Corporation, Dow Chemical, Versalis.
