As an important organic and fine chemical, 1,4 - butanediol (BDO) is widely used in pharmaceutical, chemical, textile and household chemical fields.

Thanks to high technical barriers and limited sources of raw materials, the global BDO production is relatively concentrated. In 2012, the global BDO capacity was mainly distributed in Asia which contributed 60% or more to the global capacity, the United States and Europe. The combined BDO capacity of the world's five largest manufacturers, namely Germany BASF, Taiwan Dairen Chemical Corporation, LyondellBasell, ISP and Shanxi Sanwei, made up over 50% of the global total capacity in 2012.

In recent years, many companies have implemented new or expansion plans in response to the growing demand for BDO downstream products such as poly-tetrahydrofuran (PTMEG), polybutyleneterephthalate (PBT) and γ-butyrolactone, so that China's BDO production scale has bulged. In 2012, China's BDO capacity reached 744,000 tons, while the demand just hit about 490,000 tons, and the operating rate of plants was less than 60%.

China's BDO Capacity and Operating Rate, 2006-2013

In the next few years, China's new BDO capacity will be still considerable. According to the published proposed / ongoing construction plans, China’s new BDO capacity will reach 1.70 million tons or so in 2013 - 2015. If this is realized as scheduled, China’s BDO production will see exceesive overcapacity and the market competition will prick up further, which will lead to the suspension and shutdown of some production devices.

China BDO industry characterizes high concentration. As of the end of July 2013, top three BDO producers had contributed 42.8% to the total capacity in Mainland China together. Markor Chem is China's largest BDO enterprise with the capacity of 160,000 tons /a including 100,000 tons /a realized in March, 2013. The ranking No.2 Shanxi Sanwei is China's only BDO manufacturer that has independent intellectual property rights of Reppe process with 75,000 tons / a Reppe-process and 75,000 tons / a maleic anhydride-process BDO facilities. Nanjing Bluestar takes the third position with two sets of 55,000 tons / a maleic anhydride-process BDO production equipment.
