This report studies the global Polybutene-1 (Resin) market status and forecast, categorizes the global Polybutene-1 (Resin) market size (value & volume) by manufacturers, type, application, and region. This report focuses on the top manufacturers in North America, Europe, Japan, China, India, Southeast Asia and other regions (Central & South America, and Middle East & Africa).
Polybutylene (polybutene-1, poly(1-butene), PB-1) is a polyolefin or saturated polymer with the chemical formula (C4H8)n. It should not be confused with polybutene, a low molecular weight oligomer.
The PB-1 industry is highly concentrated. There are only four manufacturers engaged in the industry presently, including LyondellBasell, Mitsui Chemicals, Ylem Technology, Shandong Hongye Chemical. LyondellBasell is the largest producer with an output of 61171 MT in 2016. Mitsui Chemicals is the sole manufacturer in Japan and mainly provides PB-1 to pipe industry.
Global production of PB-1 increased from 72574 MT in 2012 to 85051 MT in 2016. There is no doubt that Europe is the largest production base. As for consumption, Europe is also the largest consumer with about 30% share in 2016. China is the follower, and has to import about 20000 MT each year to meet its demand.
The global Polybutene-1 (Resin) market is valued at 320 million US$ in 2017 and will reach 330 million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of 0.6% during 2018-2025.
