Global 3-Hydroxybutyrolactone Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

It has been found to improve cognitive function and memory in animal models, and may have potential as a therapy for Alzheimer's disease.

Purity Above 95%:

It's a white crystalline solid that is soluble in water and ethanol. The product has an odor similar to butyl alcohol and is very hygroscopic with a tendency to form microcrystalline deposits that are insoluble in organic solvents.

Purity Above 97%:

It is a chemical that has been used in pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals. Purity Above 97% can be easily manufactured by extraction of the lactone from chamomile tea, which gives it a distinct flavor and odor.

Application Insights:

The chemical synthesis segment held the largest share of over 30% in 2017. This can be attributed to the growing demand for chemicals with high stability such as 3-hydroxybutyrate and butyraldehyde from various industries such as pharmaceuticals, paints and coatings among others. Furthermore, increasing R&D investments by major companies are expected to boost product demand in near future.

Pharmaceutical industry was one of the fastest growing segments owing to extensive research activities at universities and institutes across the globe regarding drug discovery using HBAs as a model compound for brain chemistry modification has resulted in increased product consumption during clinical trials.

Regional Analysis:

The region is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period as well due to presence of key manufacturers such as Wako Pure Chemical Ltd., Tianjin Tianjie Biochemical Co., Ltd., and Shanghai Xuyang Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. in China along with other Southeast Asian countries.

The pharmaceutical industry is one of the significant sectors contributing towards economic growth.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for 3-Hydroxybutyrolactone in various end-use industries such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and food additives.
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of 3-Hydroxybutyrolactone among consumers is expected to fuel its demand over the forecast period.
  • Rising R&D investments by key players for the development of new applications of 3-Hydroxybutyrolactone is likely to propel market growth during the forecast period.
  • Increasing use of 3-hydroxybutyrate in weight management supplements is projected to boost market growth over the next few years
