1,4--Butanediol (BDO) is an important raw material for basic organic chemical and fine chemicals and is one of chemical products with the biggest growth in demand in the world. In the recent years, the BDO downstream sector has developed rapidly, making China constantly short of BDO supply, so China has become the most important BDO net importer in the world. From 2001 to 2005, China's reliance on BDO imports exceeded 60% and reduced to over 40% in 2006 to 2007.

In the next few years, China's BDO demand will rise, boosted by the factor that capacity expansion projects of PBT resin and urethane elastic fiber will be gradually put into operation. We estimate the growth of China's BDO demand in 2008 to 2010 based on the current key BDO capacity expansion projects in the downstream sector.

BDO's high gross profit margin has stimulated quite a few manufacturers to expand the production capacity. This report estimates China's BDO capacity expansion and also predicts its output in the period 2008-2010, based on the information of key BDO producers regarding their capacity expansion projects and the timing to bring the projects into operation.
