Report Code: TIPRE00021113 | No. of Pages: 150 | Category: Chemicals and Materials | Status: Prebook

The 1,3-propanediol market accounted for approximately US$ 470 million in 2022 and is projected to exceed US$ 756 million by 2028 with an estimated CAGR of 8.2% between 2022 and 2028.

1,3-propanediol is a bifunctional organic compound used in the production of various chemicals such as polytrimethylene terephthalate, polyurethanes, and polyether. It is also used as a solvent, humectant, viscosity enhancer, carrier for active ingredients, and emollient in cosmetics and personal care products. 1,3-propanediol can be categorized into conventional and biobased. Conventional 1,3-propanediol can be obtained from petroleum-based products, whereas biobased 1,3-propanediol can be obtained from starch and sugars. The rising concerns related to environmental sustainability, carbon emissions, and climate change is driving the development of chemicals from the biobased feedstock. This factor is expected to significantly drive the demand for biobased 1,3-propanediol in the coming years.


In the past few years, sustainability concerns have increased dramatically due to the rising awareness of the adverse effects of petroleum-based products on the environment. Petroleum-derived products have massive greenhouse gas emission rates, which cause significant harm to the environment and living systems. Therefore, manufacturers of various chemicals and materials are developing products using biobased feedstock to reduce their carbon footprints. The manufacturers of 1,3-propanediol are also focusing on commercializing biobased products to promote a sustainable economy. Since 2004, Dupont and Tate & Lyle have been working jointly on the commercialization of their biobased 1,3-propanediol from renewably sourced plant feedstocks. Thus, rising focus on sustainability and increasing development of biobased 1,3-propanediol are expected to open new growth opportunities in the coming years.

The report analyzes the factors influencing the 1,3-propanediol market from both the demand and supply side and further evaluates market dynamics, i.e., drivers, restraints, opportunities, and future trends. The report also provides an exhaustive Porter's five forces analysis, highlighting the factors influencing the 1,3-propanediol market in these regions.


The COVID-19 pandemic brought unprecedented challenges to many industries, including the chemicals & materials industry. Lockdowns, border restrictions, travel bans, the shutdown of manufacturing units, and other safety protocols under the guidelines of governments of different nations negatively impacted the operations of manufacturing companies. Moreover, supply chains were completely disrupted due to nationwide lockdowns and border restrictions, which affected the production and distribution of various chemicals, including 1,3-propanediol. This also caused a spike in prices of various chemical intermediates, including 1,3-propanediol, hampering the market growth. Also, personal care, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical industries were hit by the COVID-19 pandemic due to the shutdown of manufacturing units and difficulty in sourcing raw materials. This led to a significant decline in demand for 1,3-propanediol, which negatively impacted the market growth. However, in 2021, economies started reviving due to the relaxation of various restrictions and increased vaccination rates. Manufacturers in the chemicals & materials industry were permitted to operate at full capacity, which helped them boost production and overcome demand and supply gaps. All these factors had a positive impact on the 1,3-propanediol market. Thus, initially, in 2020, the 1,3-propanediol market faced the negative impact of the pandemic; however, in 2021, as manufacturers resumed their operations, the market witnessed growth.
