Global 1,3-propanediol Market size is set to surpass USD 790 million by 2027

  • Published Date: February 3, 2021

According to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc., the global 1,3-Propanediol Market size is set to surpass USD 790 million by 2027.

1,3-propanediol is a specialty chemical compound used as a building block in production of polymers and in formulation of adhesives, coatings, paints and resins. It is produced by either by petrochemical route (i.e., thought hydroformylation of ethylene oxide or hydration of acrolein) or bio-based pathways i.e. fermentation of glycerol or sugars. Glycerol is a byproduct of the biodiesel production process, thus increasing biodiesel production is expected to positively drive the global 1,3-propanediol market during the forecast period.

The paradigm shift of consumer preference towards bio-based and eco-friendly products is witnessed across the globe to reduce the carbon footprint. Moreover, increasingly stringent government regulations, depletion of petroleum sources and growing consumer awareness have led to increased investment by companies for innovative and bio-based product development. 1,3-propanediol is used as building block to produce bio-based polyester and polyurethane, thus is expected to register high demand during the forecast period. Bio-based production through renewable feedstock, such as sugar and glycerin are expected to gain traction during the forecast period.

Growing demand for polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT) in various application to drive the industry growth

PTT application is projected to dominate the overall consumption of 1,3-propanediol in the global market through the forecast period. In 2020, the PTT application segment was valued at over USD 185 million. In textile industry the demand for PTT is increasing owing to high demand for elastic, strong and wrinkle & high abrasion resistance. In engineering applications such as automotive parts, consumer products, and electronic products, PTT is increasingly being used owing to good dimensional stability and high finishing qualities.
