Butene, or butylene, is an alkene that appears as a pungent and colorless gas, existing in four isomeric forms. It is formed during the cracking of petroleum to obtain gasoline and can also be produced commercially by the catalytic dehydrogenation of butanes. It is widely used as a co-monomer in manufacturing high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE). It is also utilized as an intermediate in the production of plasticizers, antioxidants, corrosion inhibitors, and herbicides. As a result, butene finds extensive applications across various industries, including plastics, packaging, automotive, oil refinery, and pharmaceuticals.
The escalating demand for polyethylene due to the surging need for plastics across numerous sectors represents the primary factor driving the global butene market. Additionally, butene is utilized as co-monomer in manufacturing high density poly-ethylene (HDPE) and linear low density poly-ethylene (LLDPE), which are used in food and non-food packaging applications, such as bags and stretch wraps, toys, containers, pipes, and other consumer goods. Along with this, the growing usage of butene as an additive in hydraulic and lubricating oils has augmented the product demand. Besides this, the rising adoption of butene in oilfield drilling applications owing to its low volatility, odor, and ability to facilitate anaerobic biodegradation in the marine environment is another major growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, there has been widespread product adoption in manufacturing valeraldehyde, polybutene, butadiene, butylene oxide, maleic anhydride, Secondary Butyl Alcohol (SBA), and Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK). Along with this, the increasing applications of butene as a precursor to polypropylene resins, butylene oxide, and butanone have accelerated the product adoption rate. Moreover, the shifting focus of manufacturers toward improving their production capacity and developing highly sustainable products to promote a clean environment has catalyzed market growth. Other factors, including the expanding packaging sector, supportive government initiatives, technological advancements, and ongoing research and development (R&D) activities, are also anticipated to create a favorable market outlook.
