The compound is used as a viscosity modifier for polyurethanes, rubber additives, plant growth regulators, and as a solvent for paint stripping and finds application in a range of industries including agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, food, and beverages, electrical, petroleum, and others like cosmetics and personal care. The European GBL market has witnessed substantial demand over the past few years owing to the rising consumption of agrochemical chemicals such as pesticides and herbicides due to growing agricultural activities in Europe.

Gamma butyrolactone is mainly manufactured using 1-4 butanediol (BDO) and different types of catalysts including copper, nickel, and others. BDO is subject to intense price and supply volatility in the global market as it is manufactured from butane or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). Fluctuations in the price and demand/supply of the aforementioned raw materials are expected to hamper the prices of gamma butyrolactone over the forecast period.

The spread of the COVID-19 virus has crippled the European economy and severely impacted the supply chains across industries. The production and consumption of gamma butyrolactone are highly influenced by its demand from end-use industries. Thus, any fluctuations in the demand from end-use industries are anticipated to directly impact the demand for gamma butyrolactone.
