Propylene Carbonate Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Consumption and Production of Natural Gas - Propylene carbonate is generally utilized as a solvent that removes CO2 and H2S in oil pyrolysis gas and natural gas treatment along with applications of synthetic ammonia conversion gas. Based on the statistics provided by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), it was stated that in 2019 the total production of natural gas was 142,687,000 million cubic feet while the consumption was estimated to be 141,353,000 million cubic feet.
  • Spiking Demand for Benzene across the Globe - As of 2022, the demand for benzene is estimated to reach about 50 million metric tons worldwide. Propylene carbonate is used as a solvent for many organic compounds, including benzene.
  • Higher Requirements of the Product in the Dyes and Pigments Production - In 2021, the volume of pigment and dye production was noticed to be around 360 thousand metric tons solely in India. Propylene carbonate is used in the production of dyes and pigments as it comprises of a wide range of syntheses and applications.


  • Requirement for Higher Initial Investment - The high costs included in the initial stage is expected to pose a challenge as it becomes difficult for the population with middle-income startups to incorporate pressure-sensitive adhesives in the use of varied processes. Therefore, this factor is estimated to hamper the growth of the market over the forecast period.
  • Restrictions on the Export and Import of Chemicals
  • Competition from Other Alternatives

Propylene Carbonate Segmentation

Application (Cleaning & Degreasing, Paint & Coating, Personal Car, Textile Dyeing)

The paint & coating segment is estimated to hold 40% share of the global propylene carbonate market during the projected time frame. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the higher utilization of propylene carbonate in the paint & coating industry in construction and manufacturing processes. It is heavily used in the production of paint since propylene carbonate is a high-boiling solvent along with a film-forming auxiliary. It is primarily used in polyvinylidene fluoride and polyvinyl fluoride systems. For instance, the total value of the paint & coating industry was estimated to be about USD 150 billion in 2020.

Form Type (Aqueous, Emulsion, Film, Pellet)

Propylene carbonate market from the aqueous segment is expected to garner a significant share. Higher utilization of aqueous forms of propylene carbonate across several industries such as cosmetics and personal care is anticipated to drive the segment growth over the forecast period. Aqueous solutions are also highly popular in which water is the solvent and it is known to be great electricity conductors. Some of the common types of aqueous solutions are acid & base solutions, cola, rain, salt, and salt water.

Propylene Carbonate Industry- Regional Synopsis

North American Market Forecast

The propylene carbonate market in North America is projected to be the largest with a share of about 37% by the end of 2035. The growth of the market can be attributed majorly to the growing  natural gas storage. Additionally, the presence of major key players and growing various industries with an up-surged demand for propylene carbonate is also expected to hike the growth of the market in the region over the forecast period.

APAC Market Statistics

The Asia Pacific propylene carbonate market is estimated to be the second largest, registering a share of about 22% by the end of 2035. The growth of the market can be attributed majorly to the increasing restriction on the use of single-use plastic for improving plastic waste management, which in turn increases the demand for plasticizers made up of propylene carbonate for the production of better plastic and increases its processing quality.
