1,6-Hexanediol Market Size has witnessed significant growth owing to end use markets such as polyurethane, coatings and acrylates among others. 1,6 hexanediol are used in various industries as it is easily available, colorless crystalline solid with high affinity towards water in-addition to this 1,6 hexanediol can be customized.
Market Overview and Growth factors:
The advancements of technologies, and development of bio based raw materials are expected to influence the growth of the 1,6-Hexanediol Market Size for the forecasted period. However, there are a few restraints to the 1,6-Hexanediol Market Size. 1,6 hexanediol is highly hygroscopic in nature and measures need to be taken in order to minimize its interaction with air or moisture. Temperature of the product should be maintained between 55°C and 70°C at all times to optimize its utility. It causes eye irritation and diffuse opacity of cornea upon contact with eyes. Vapors or dust of 1,6 hexanediol also causes respiratory tract irritation. Proper protective garments should be worn by people handing the substance so as to minimize skin contact. In-addition, Storage and transportation is a major challenge for this chemically active substance.
1, 6 Hexanediol market is segmented into by application: polyurethane, paints coatings, acrylics, adhesive, polyester resins, and unsaturated, plasticizers. 1, 6 Hexanediol is used in polyurethane, polyurethane had the largest market share in 2016 owing to rising energy conversation importance due to increasing cost along with shift in preference towards high efficiency and low GHG material. Paints Coatings are the second largest segment in 2016, the market is anticipated to touch down in millions by 2022.
The construction industry is anticipated to witness significant for the forecasted period , owing to huge investments in new infrastructure developments, new housing projects, and renovation/repaint of residential and commercial buildings in the U.S., China, India, Indonesia and Brazil. The demand for coatings in the Asia-Pacific region has increased significantly, and this trend is expected to continue in the near future.
