2,3-Butanediol Market: Introduction

In terms of value, the global 2,3-Butanediol market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 3.5% from 2020 to 2030. The rise in demand for rubbers such as styrene–butadiene rubber, styrene–butadiene latex, nitrile rubber, and chloroprene rubber in the tire industry is expected to drive the global 2,3-Butanediol market, as 2,3-Butanediol is converted into 1,3-Butadiene that is extensively employed in the manufacture of different kinds of rubbers. 2,3-Butanediol acts as a precursor to methyl ethyl ketone (also known as MEK or 2-butanone). The demand for 2,3-Butanediol is estimated to rise significantly in this area of application during the forecast period. The demand for products with natural origin has been rising across the globe. Products manufactured through fermentation and biorefinery processes are replacing synthetic and petrochemical products. 2,3-Butanediol (2,3-BD) is a promising bulk chemical with potentially wide range of applications.

High Cost of Commercial Production to Hamper 2,3-Butanediol Market

2,3-Butanediol is a niche chemical. The industry is currently in the early phase of its adoption. The high cost involved in the commercial production of 2,3-Butanediol is a key factor hampering the global market. 2,3-Butanediol witnessed a moderate level of commercialization up to 2019. Currently, manufacturers are engaged in scaling up the production of 2,3-Butanediol and its usage as a precursor to several industrial chemicals such as methyl ethyl ketone, butadiene, and acetoin through pilot plant operations. The availability of prominent cost-effective substitutes such as 1,4-Butanediol, 1,3-Butanediol, and 1,2-Butanediol is projected to hinder the global 2,3-Butanediol market in the near future.

Intermediate Chemicals to Offer Lucrative Opportunities

In terms of application, the global 2,3-Butanediol market has been divided into intermediate chemicals, plastics, food additives, cosmetics, and others. In terms of value, the intermediate chemicals segment dominated the global 2,3-Butanediol market in 2019. The intermediate chemicals segment is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of more than 3.6% during the forecast period. 2,3-Butanediol is used as an intermediate chemical in various industrial compounds, which can be used as building blocks for the production of synthetic rubbers, plasticizers, printing inks, solvents, flavorings, and pharmaceuticals. 2,3-Butanediol is employed in the production of acetoin, a high value feedstock that can be widely used in dairy and cosmetic products, and chemical synthesis. The demand for 2,3-Butanediol is high as synthetic rubber precursor, as it is used in the production of 1,3-butadiene. 2,3-Butanediol can be converted into methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), which is used as a biofuel additive. After combining with methyl-ethyl-ketone and hydrogenation reaction, 2,3-Butanediol can be converted into octane, which is used to produce high-quality aviation fuel.
