Synopsis of 1, 3-Propanediol Market

1, 3-propanediol is a class of specialty compounds, a colorless liquid that is miscible in water. These compounds can be produced either by hydration of acrolein or by hydroformylation of ethylene oxide. 1, 3-propanediol is mainly used as a feedstock in the production of various chemicals and materials. These high specialty compounds find its applications in the production of polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT), polyurethane, cosmetics & personal care, and household cleaners. The other niche applications include engine coolants, de-icing fluid, and heat transfer fluid among others.  The growing demand for polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT) in various end-use industries is anticipated to be the major factor driving the global 1, 3-propanediol market during the assessed period. Glycerol is a byproduct of the biodiesel production process, which is a prominent raw material in the production of 1, 3-propanediol. Hence, the growing production of biodiesel is expected to positively affect the growth of the global 1, 3-propanediol market. The volatility in crude oil prices along with the growing environmental regulations has resulted in investment in the research and development activities for the production of bio-based 1, 3-propanediol. This is anticipated to be a major opportunity for the market growth. Biobased 1, 3-propanediol is a FDA certified biobased product, which can be used in many applications such as functional & deicing fluid, coatings, cosmetic & personal care, home care, polymers, and fibers among others.  The global 1, 3-propanediol market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 9% during the given period.  Among the various application segments in 1, 3-propanediol market, the polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT) followed by polyurethane is dominating the market and is anticipated to continue its dominance over the forecast period. Polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT) is extensively used in the production of cosmetic & personal care products, home care products, engine coolants, and heat transfer fluids among others, whereas polyurethane is mainly used in the building & construction and automobile industries.
