Increasing demand for 1,6-hexanediol due to increased consumption by manufacturers in APAC  region. 1,6-hexanediol is a multi-characteristic material used in polyurethanes, coatings, acrylates, and polyester resins, and others. It is used as an intermediate in preparation of coatings, PU, and acrylates. The high performance and low environmental impacts during operational exposure to workers are the key factors contributing to the high consumption of 1,6-hexanediol.

The global polyurethanes is projected to register significant growth and is the largest market in the overall 1,6-hexanediol market. It is the largest application of 1,6-hexanediol. Increasing demand for thermoplastic polyurethanes elastomers, coatings, foams, and so on has led to growth of polyurethanes market. 1,6-hexanediol converts the polyurethane into a modified polyurethane with substantially high corrosion resistance. It permeates different properties including high mechanical strength, low glass transition temperature, and high heat resistance into polyurethanes.

Europe is predicted to be the dominating region in 1,6-hexanediol market, in terms of value and volume, during the forecast period. Consumption of adhesives, softening agents, lacquers, acrylics, and others by manufacturers acts as a driving factor for the growth of the 1,6-hexanediol market. The use of chemicals in the manufacturing of acrylates is expected to grow further particularly in European region during the forecast period.


Key 1,6-Hexanediol market players are BASF SE (Germany), Fushun Tianfu Chemicals Co., Ltd. (China), Lanxess Aktiengesellschaft (Germany), Linshui Nanming Chemical Co., Ltd.
