London, UK (PRWEB) February 20, 2014
In 2012, the global butadiene supply registered a 0.5% YoY decrease and reached 10.45 million tonnes. The overall market witnessed slowdown of the growth rates owing to unfavourable conditions in the market along with a decline in the tire industry. In 2012, APAC ranked the leading regional butadiene producer, accounting for around half of the global production. In the same year, China, the US, South Korea, Japan and Germany were the top five butadiene manufacturing countries; their combined share of the world supply volume was over 64%.
In spite of the fact, that the world butadiene supply volume recorded slight decline in 2012, it is anticipated to follow a stable upward trend in the years ahead. The global butadiene production is projected to exceed 12.7 million tonnes in 2017. The on-going recovery in the automotive sector will encourage novel butadiene capacity additions worldwide, however, the majority of them are likely to take place in the APAC region (especially China).
