1,6-hexanediol is a newly emerging fine chemical product with unique properties, non corrosiveness, green and environmentally friendly. 

It can be mixed with organic chemicals in any proportion and can generate a series of new fine chemicals. It is known as the "new cornerstone of organic synthesis" today and is an environmentally friendly chemical raw material product strongly advocated by the country for development. 

It is mainly used to improve the mechanical strength of products and enhance their hydrolysis resistance It is widely used as a raw material for polyester diols, such as thermoplastic polyurethane elastomers TPU, cast polyurethane elastomers CPU, polyurethane adhesives, polyurethane inks and colorants, fabric coatings, UV coatings, plasticizers, pharmaceutical intermediates, etc., due to its heat resistance and chemical reagent resistance.

In addition, as a diol product, hexanediol can replace other diol products such as butanediol and hexanediol in many fields, and has better performance.

At present, China has become an important global production base for 1,6-hexanediol, and the production focus of 1,6-hexanediol has gradually shifted from developed countries such as Europe and America to China and neighboring developing countries. With the continuous development of China's economy and the expansion of downstream application fields in the industry, driven by the dual promotion of domestic demand market and overseas trade expansion, the 1,6-hexanediol industry in China has developed rapidly. According to data, the market size of China's 1,6-hexanediol industry in 2022 was approximately 956 million yuan, a year-on-year increase of 14.4%; The production is about 44500 tons, a year-on-year increase of 15.6%; The demand is about 38900 tons, a year-on-year increase of 9.3%. Among them, polyurethane is the largest demand area in the industry, accounting for about 54.3% of the demand, followed by UV cured materials, accounting for about 32.5% of the demand.
