Butene Market: Dynamics
The demand for butane has been increasing in various industries such as automotive, industrial, pharmaceuticals, and packaging. Butene is significantly used for the packaging of automotive, electrical spare parts, food & beverages, etc.
Butene is used as an intermediate in the manufacture of plasticizers, antioxidants, corrosion inhibitors, and herbicides. It is also used as an additive in hydraulic and lubricating oils. It is also used in oilfield drilling applications, as it has low volatility, low odor, and aids in anaerobic biodegradation in marine environment. These factors are expected to drive the demand for butane in the near future.
The growth in usage of HDPE in ballistic plates, bottles caps, boats, chemical resistant piping, and containers due to the low manufacturing cost is creating lucrative opportunities for the butene market.
Butene is primarily used as comonomer for HDPE, wherein it improves the tear strength of the polymer. The demand for HDPE is rising in packaging and construction industries due to its characteristics such as low manufacturing cost, high strength-to-density ratio, and high temperature ratio. The physical properties of HDPE vary depending on the molding process that is used to manufacture it. It is highly resistant to various types of solvents and is used in many applications such as pipes, ropes, disposable suits, chairs, and toys.
The increase in demand for lightweight packaging in industries such as automotive, aerospace, and pharmaceutical is fuelling the demand for HDPE. This, in turn, is augmenting the demand for butene.
Butene Market: Prominent Regions
Based on region, the global butene market can be segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific dominated the global butene market in 2020. The region is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. The dominance of Asia Pacific can be ascribed to an increase in usage of butene in the industrial and packaging sectors of emerging economies, including China and India, in the region.
