Acetylene is a highly flammable gas obtained from calcium carbide. Acetylene is manufactured by partial combustion of methane. Acetylene gas is also obtained as byproduct of reaction between calcium carbide and water. Acetylene gas is also produced from hydrocarbon sources such as naphtha, crude oil and coal among others. It is also obtained as a side product in the ethylene stream from cracking of hydrocarbons. Acetylene is colorless and extremely explosive. Acetylene is mainly consumed as a fuel and chemical building block. It is also used in welding and metal cutting and many other brazing applications.

Acetylene market is primarily driven by strong demand from China. China accounted for large volume consumption of acetylene. Strong industrial growth in China has been resulted into rapid growth of acetylene in China. Acetylene is primarily used as chemical building block in the manufacture of 1,4-butanediol (BDO). Acetylene is also used in the manufacturing of other acetylenic chemicals such as vinyl ethers, other acetylenic alcohols, N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone, butynediol. However, volatile raw material prices are expected to be the major concern for the industry participants. However, an effort towards development of bio-based acetylene gas is expected to provide growth opportunity to industry participants.
