Industry Definition and Major Segments

Polytetramethylene Ether Glycol (PTMEG) is a linear polymer formed by the acid-catalyzed polymerisation of tetrahydrofuran (THF). It is mainly utilised in the production of elastomeric polyurethane fibres such as spandex. PTMEG is a tetrahydrofuran polymer or a polyether formed from 1,4-butanediol because THF is made by the acid-catalyzed dehydration of 1,4-butanediol (BDO), which is one of the most extensively used industrial process for THF manufacturing.

Market Trends

Globally, the Asia Pacific holds the largest market share, and in the forecast period this region will continue to dominate the market shares. Rising population, increasing demand for health and fitness apparel, low-cost manufacturing setups due to cheap labour, are some of the key drivers propelling this region’s market in the forecast period. The North America and European regions are anticipated to attract investors for novel manufacturing techniques, to attain sustainable production standards. South America and the Middle East and African regions are also expected to showcase decent CAGR growth in the forecast period. 

Increased adoption of new technology and growing textile industry is anticipated to fuel the market growth. Other factors driving to the market's growth include increased demand for higher-quality stretch fabric in a variety of applications, changing lifestyles, an increase in sport activities around the world, and rising disposable income. Another important factor is that 1,4-butanediol (BDO), polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMEG), and spandex are biodegradable polymers used to make thermoplastic polyurethane. The increase in polyurethane consumption fuel, will assist the targeted market growth at the same time. With growing demand from alternative markets like automotive sector, the market is expected to grow in the forecast period.

However, stringent government policies regarding the controlled use of carcinogenic materials like BDO, to manufacture PTMEG and Spandex can inhibit the growth of the market. Fluctuating raw material costs, availability of alternative options may limit the market’s growth in the forecast period.
