About Polybutylene Terephthalate

PBT is a saturated polyester that is mainly obtained from butanediol (BDO) and terephthalic acid or dimethyl terephthalate (DMT). It is extensively used in the polymers and plastics industry because it offers high-performance blends like polyethylene terephthalate (PET), acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA), and others. PBT offers a valuable combination of high technical properties and good dimensional stability because of its properties of low water absorption, high stiffness, and excellent resistance to heat.

Technavios analysts forecast the Global PBT Market to grow at a CAGR of 6.39% during the period 2016-2020.
