Major application area of 1,3-propanediol is polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT)
manufacturing which is used for carpets and some industrial textile applications due to
its excellent properties. Other applications of 1,3-PDO include polyurethane
manufacturing, cosmetic, personal care & home cleaning products, engine coolant, heat
transfer fluid, and deicing fluids production.

At present the market is dominated by DuPont Tate & Lyle (U.S.) which is the only bulk
producer of 1,3-PDO. There are few Chinese companies but they produces at very small
scale. Some new players such as France-based Metabolic Explorers and China-based Huamei
Biomaterial are going to enter into the market in near future. With increase in 1,3-PDO
production, PTT production will also rise. Many of the 1,3-PDO producers will go for
upward integration and start producing PTT by themselves. Some polyethylene terephthalate
(PET) producers are also like to start PTT production since the cost of conversion of a
PET facility to PTT is in between 10% to 20% of the cost of building a new plant.

In terms of geographical markets, Americas region is the largest market followed by
Asia-Pacific and then Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA). Asia-Pacific is the highest
growing region where by 2019 the market will expand by almost eleven times of present
size. At country level, U.S. has the maximum revenue share.

Increasing demand of bio-based chemicals, growing application areas and increasing
population are the major drivers of the global 1,3-PDO market
[http://www.marketsandmarkets.com/Market-Reports/1-3-propanediol-pdo-market-760.html ].
1,3-PDO derived from bio-based feedstock is environment friendly which is acting as
supporting factors for 1,3-PDO market growth. Europe is the largest market for cosmetics,
personal care, and home cleaning products and is experiencing the high growth rate. Demand
of nature-based (bio-based) ingredients will drive the growth of 1,3-PDO market in Europe.
