Bio-Butanediol Price Trend for the First Half of 2022

Bio-Butanediol is derived via the hydrolysis of starch or glucose syrup. The raw sugar is converted to glucose or fructose and then to succinic acid. The price of feedstock raw sugars remained strong in the international market amid supply shortages due to trade bottlenecks and robust demand. With the USA and Latin America experiencing the worst weather conditions, a lousy harvest was recorded; thereby, the entire pressure to meet the world's sugar requirement came on Asia.

In the USA, the price was raw sugar peaked in April, averaging 808.38 USD/MT, and stabilized in June, averaging 797.18 USD/MT. The raw sugar prices in Brazil averaged 492 USD/MT towards the end of the second quarter. The heightened feedstock prices amid the increased demand for biobased chemicals caused the price trends for bio-butanediol to inflate globally.

BDO is an important raw material for basic organic chemicals and fine chemicals. One of the major factors for showing interest in bio-BDO by companies is to reduce the use of petroleum-based feedstocks in light of global oil prices.  BDO is used as a cross-linking agent for thermoplastic urethanes, polyester plasticizers, paints and coatings, copolyester hot melt and solvent-borne adhesives. It is a versatile chemical intermediate because of its terminal, primary hydroxyl groups and its hydrophobic and chemical resistant nature.
