Global Butyl-Lithium Market: By Applications (Medical, Polymers and Others); By Geography (North America, Europe, Asia-pacific and Rest of the world) - Forecasts till 2020
The extreme polar nature of carbon-lithium bond makes butyllithium a strong base material in various applications in elastomers, medical and other segments. In polymers, butyllithium finds its major application in the manufacturing of elastomers such as poly-isoprene, polybutadiene and butadiene/styrene copolymer - styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS). It work as reducing agents, catalyst or initiator for polymerization and catalysts for organic reactions. Medical segment is other important segment for butyllithium. In medical industry, it is largely employed as a strong base (superbase) in the synthesis of organic compounds in the pharmaceutical industry. Other applications of butyllithium are organic synthesis of agrochemicals and electronic materials.
In volume terms, the polymer segment demands 85% of the total global butyllithium consumption among all application of butyllithium in 2014. Medical segment accounted for 10%, while other applications merely makes 5% of the butyllithium consumption.
The end use segments such as medical and polymers industries in Asia-Pacific region growing at a good pace. Medical industry is growing in Asia-Pacific region with the increasing awareness on health related matter with increasing per capita expenditure on health. Polymer industry such as plastics and rubber are also growing with the good growth in automotive and consumer good segment, respectively. Demand in these end industries will further drive the demand for butyllithium in the Asia-Pacific region.
