The growing demand for LPG from residential and commercial sectors where it is mainly used as a domestic fuel is the major factor driving the market for butanes. Butane use as petrochemical feedstock for producing ethylene and other derivatives is also driving the market demand owing to growing ethylene capacity in the Middle East. However, volatility in crude oil prices and the regulatory issues owing to growing environmental concerns are the major factors inhibiting the market for butanes.

The growing demand for LPG in emerging economies of China, India and other countries in the Asia Pacific region provides immense opportunities for butane producers to set up SBUs in Asia Pacific in order to cater to the growing demand in the region.
