Global Alkylene Oxides and Glycols Market Highlights Over 2022 - 2031
The global alkylene oxides and glycols market is estimated to garner a large amount of revenue by growing at a CAGR of ~4% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. The growth of the market can be attributed largely to the increasing usage of PET bottles, and rising sales of automobiles around the world, where the chemicals are used for making seat belts. It is calculated that more than 580 billion units of PET bottles will be produced by the end of 2021, up from about 480 billion units in 2016. Along with these, ethylene oxide is a low-temperature disinfectant, and is heavily applied to sterilize medical devices and healthcare products such as bandages and ointments. This is expected to be another factor driving market growth in the upcoming years. Furthermore, growing demand among consumers for better packaged food globally is projected to offer profitable opportunities to the market in the near future.

The market is segmented by end use into plastics & polymers, cosmetics & personal care, chemical & pharmaceutical, detergents, and others, out of which, the plastics & polymers segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the global alkylene oxides and glycols market. This can be accounted to the high utilization of plastics around the world, coupled with the indispensable role of ethylene glycol in plastic manufacturing. Apart from these, rising use of alkylene oxides and glycols for making polyester fibers and films is also predicted to boost the growth of the market segment in the future. Additionally, on the basis of alkylene type, the ethylene segment is assessed to grab the largest share during the forecast period owing to the increasing utilization of ethylene oxides and glycols in commercial and industrial applications as an antifreeze and coolant.
Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth
The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Program), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favorable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labor as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
