Tetrahydrofuran is also used as an intermediate in the manufacturing of PVC, magnetic tapes, adhesives etc. and used as solvent for plastics. Polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMEG) and solvents are the major applications of THF. PTMEG is used in the manufacturing of spandex and other polyurethanes and there is a high demand of Spandex in the Textile industry whereas polyurethane has wide range of applications like foams, insulation panels, seals, automotive suspension bushings etc. Therefore, major end use industries for Tetrahydrofuran include polymer, textile, chemicals, pharmaceutical, paints and coatings, automotive, construction and others. The growing demand of Tetrahydrofuran in the production of Polyurethanes and PVC are fueling the market for Tetrahydrofuran globally.

In 2020, COVID-19 outbreak in major global economies caused nationwide lockdowns which had an impact on a number of industries. Construction, Automobile and Textile were among the most affected industries during the pandemic. This had a negative impact on the demand of paints and coatings and spandex which ultimately affects the market for Tetrahydrofuran. However, the growing demand for THF from Asia Pacific and North America is projected to boost its market in the forecast period.

Regionally, Asia Pacific dominates the Global tetrahydrofuran market and holds the largest market share in due to the presence of textile hub in China and India coupled with the rapid growth automotive as well as pharmaceutical sectors in the region. Heavy demand from PTMEG industry is likely to propel the Asia Pacific market for Tetrahydrofuran in the forthcoming years. Moreover, increasing demand for spandex in US and Europe for textile industry is expected to boost the market for Tetrahydrofuran in the region.

According to ChemAnalyst report, Global Tetrahydrofuran Market: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Demand & Supply, Technology, Application, End Use, Distribution Channel, Region, Competition, Trade, Customer & Price Intelligence Market Analysis, 2015-2030”, some of the major players operating global tetrahydrofuran market are BASF SE, Ashland, Baren Chemicals Industries, INVISTA, Dairen Chemical, Mitsubishi Chemical co. Ltd, LyondellBasell, Sipchem Chemical Industry, Nova Molecular Technologies, BioAmber Inc., and Sigma-Aldrich Corp.

“Due to wide range applications of Tetrahydrofuran and its derivative such as PTMEG, there is a high demand for it in the end use industries including Polymer, Textile, Construction, Automobile, Paints & Coatings, Packaging, Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals which drives the global market for Tetrahydrofuran. China, India and Japan are the key growth regions with sufficiently installed capacities for Tetrahydrofuran in APAC region. Additionally, North America and Europe are also predicted to grow at a significant rate for the forecasted period. With the new competitors emerging across the Asia Pacific Tetrahydrofuran market, players anticipate that there will be sufficient supply demand gaps in future. At this, it is extremely important to keep an eye which region will grab the biggest market share in the upcoming years.” said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with TechSci Research, a research based global management consulting firm promoting ChemAnalyst.
