April 28, 2022 | Chemical & Materials

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT) Market Report by Type (Industrial Grade, Commercial Grade), Processing Method (Injection Molding, Extrusion, Blow Molding, and Others), End Use Industry (Automotive, Extrusion Products, Electrical and Electronics, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” finds that the global polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) market size reached US$ 2,928.4 Million in 2023. Polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) is a semi-crystalline, synthetic, and semi-aromatic engineered thermoplastic used as an insulator in various electrical components. It is produced by blending dimethyl terephthalate or terephthalic acid with butanediol. It exhibits a high rate of crystallization, and chemical, abrasion and heat resistance properties. It also has a low melting point, higher impact resistance, improved tensile strength, and enhanced flexibility as compared to polyethylene terephthalate (PET). Owing to these properties, PBT finds extensive application across automotive, textile, electrical and electronics industries. 

Global Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT) Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the expanding automotive industry across the globe. PBT is widely utilized to produce cast iron, bronze and ceramic-based automobile handles, fuel system components, windshield wiper covers, connectors and seat belts. In addition, various product innovations, such as the introduction of recyclable PBT that is produced with sustainable green materials, are contributing to the market growth. Besides this, PBT is used in the textile industry to manufacture swimwear due to its flexibility, saltwater resistance, and color retention properties. This, coupled with the rising product utilization in deflection coils, bushings, and adapter coil bobbins, is creating a positive market outlook across the globe. Furthermore, governments of numerous countries are undertaking favorable initiatives to promote PBT adoption in various industries to minimize harmful emissions, which is expected to propel market growth in the coming years. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 4,025.9 Million by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 3.49% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
