Tetrahydrofuran Market to Grow at a CAGR of 6.85% by 2030

According to ChemAnalyst report, “Tetrahydrofuran (THF) Market: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Demand & Supply, Technology, End Use, Distribution Channel, Region, Competition, Trade, Market Analysis, 2015-2030”, Tetrahydrofuran market has shown a promising growth in the past five years and is projected to achieve a CAGR of 6.85% during the forecast period. Growing demand for spandex and paints and coatings coupled with the increasing demand from other end use industries is expected to drive the demand of tetrahydrofuran for the forecast period. Tetrahydrofuran is an organic, volatile, and water-soluble compound, manufactured through several processes such as Reppe process, Davy process, Propylene Oxide process, Butadiene process. Among these processes, the Reppe process leads the global market for tetrahydrofuran due to its industrial viability and low cost.

In 2020, COVID-19 outbreak in major global economies caused nationwide lockdowns which had an impact on a number of industries. Construction, Automobile and Textile were among the most affected industries during the pandemic. This had a negative impact on the demand of paints and coatings and spandex which ultimately affects the market for Tetrahydrofuran. However, the growing demand for THF from Asia Pacific and North America is projected to boost its market in the forecast period.

Regional Outlook:

Regionally, Asia Pacific dominates the tetrahydrofuran market and holds the largest market share in due to the presence of textile hub in China and India coupled with the rapid growth automotive as well as pharmaceutical sectors in the region. Heavy demand from PTMEG industry is likely to propel the Asia Pacific market for Tetrahydrofuran in the forthcoming years. Moreover, increasing demand for spandex in US and Europe for textile industry is expected to boost the market for Tetrahydrofuran in the region.

Key Players:

  • Ashland
  • Baren Chemicals Industries
  • Dairen Chemical
  • Mitsubishi Chemical co. Ltd
  • LyondellBasell
  • Sipchem Chemical Industry
  • Nova Molecular Technologie
  • BioAmber Inc., and Sigma-Aldrich Corp.

“Due to wide range applications of Tetrahydrofuran and its derivative such as PTMEG, there is a high demand for it in the end use industries including Polymer, Textile, Construction, Automobile, Paints & Coatings, Packaging, Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals which drives the global market for Tetrahydrofuran. China, India and Japan are the key growth regions with sufficiently installed capacities for Tetrahydrofuran in APAC region. Additionally, North America and Europe are also predicted to grow at a significant rate for the forecasted period. With the new competitors emerging across the Asia Pacific Tetrahydrofuran market, players anticipate that there will be sufficient supply demand gaps in future. At this, it is extremely important to keep an eye which region will grab the biggest market share in the upcoming years.” said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with TechSci Research, a research based global management consulting firm promoting ChemAnalyst.
