Market Outlook:

The global polytetrahydrofuran market was valued at USD 2,649.3 Million in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 3,437.29 Million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 3.6% during the forecast period. Polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG) is a type of polycol formed with the repeated material [–CH2 (CH2)3O–] from tetrahydrofuran (THF). Polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG) are formed by the catalyst polymerization of tetrahydrofuran and are known as poly tetramethylene ether glycol or poly tetramethylene oxide. This is readily soluble in ketones, chlorinated hydrocarbons, insoluble in fatty hydrocarbons or liquid alcohols, aromatic, and esters. The solubility decreases as its molecular weight increases. PTMEG becomes white waxy solid at room temperature. Elastic fibers, such as elastane (spandex), which are employed for extendable fabrics and polyurethane resins are primary applications of polytetrahydrofuran. They are used in artificial leather manufacturing. The industry concentration of polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG) is minimal; less than 50 producers worldwide are involved and the high-end products come primarily from the US, Germany, Taiwan, and Japan. PTMEG is used for making elastic textiles such as swimsuits, support hoses, sock tops, weatherproof clothing, athletic apparel, roller skates, skateboards, footwear, and medical equipment.

Global Polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG) Market Key Takeaways

Market Dynamics
Drivers
Rise in Use of Polytetrahydrofuran in automobile industry

The automobile industry is expected to be one of the rapidly growing industry in the near future, owing to the rise in the demand for the automobiles, across the world. Polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG) are used in the manufacturing of seat covers and are also used for the coating the surfaces. The polytetrahydrofuran are elastic and resilient, which helps in retaining the shape of the seat covers. These are some of the factors, which has led to the rise in the adoption of the Polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG) in the automobile industry. Materials such as Polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polystyrene, and polyethylene, are used as key materials in manufacturing of seat belts in the automobile industry. The polyterahydrofuran (PTMEG), also finds its application in decorations of the automobiles, which are some of the factors, which boost the demand for the polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG). The polytetrahydrofuran PTMEG are also used in the manufacturing of the cover of the gear shift knobs. The rising popularity among the consumers for the decoration of the interiors of the cars are some of the factors, which contributes for the demand for Polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG).

Growing Fashion Industry in Emerging Countries
Several emerging economies such as China, India, Indonesia, Taiwan, and Thailand in Asia Pacific are adopting western cultures, including fashion. This has substantially fueled the demand for lycra, and stretchable clothing, in the region. The Polytetrahydrofuran is used in the manufacturing of spandex thread, which are used in the manufacturing of stretchable clothes. China is a leading hub for the manufacture of spandex thread, thus fueling the expansion of the fashion industry in the region. High production of spandex based clothes in the region is boosting the need for polytetrahydrofuran among manufacturers.
