Global 1,3-Propanediol Market 2024


Product Code: GC05190R Industry: Region:

1,3-Propanediol, also known as PDO, is a colorless, odorless liquid with the chemical formula C3H8O2. One of the primary applications of 1,3-propanediol is in the production of polymers such as polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT). PTT is a biodegradable polyester used in fibers, textiles, and packaging materials. 1,3-Propanediol serves as a monomer in the polymerization process, contributing to the formation of PTT’s molecular structure.

According to the latest estimates, the global 1,3-propanediol market is set to achieve an incremental growth of USD 0.9 billion, accelerating at a CAGR of almost 7.3% during the forecast period 2024-2030. The increasing awareness of environmental sustainability and the shift towards bio-based materials drive demand for bio-based chemicals like PDO. As consumers and industries seek alternatives to petroleum-derived products, bio-based PDO offers a renewable and environmentally friendly option, thereby driving market growth. It serves as a key building block in the production of biopolymers such as PTT and polyurethanes. The growing demand for sustainable packaging materials, textiles, and automotive components, coupled with advancements in biopolymer technology, fuels the demand for PDO as a raw material, thus driving market growth.
