Global Glycol Market Dynamics


  • Growing demand  of propylene glycol  

Propylene glycol is used in hydraulic fluids and fire-resistant brake as a coolant in the transportation sector for engine cooling. This is widely used as a raw material for de-icing planes and as a heat transfer fluid for high-temperature applications. The rising demand of propylene glycol is expected to boost the growth of the glycol market.

  • Huge demand of glycol in food industry

Glycol is widely used to improve several processed food products, flavour, appearance, texture, and shelf life. The significant rise in processed foods is due to hectic lifestyles, growing working population and changing dietary patterns. These are some key factors expected to stimulate the glycol market's growth.

Furthermore, rising demand of the compound in polyester resins manufacturing, rising preferences towards the usages of organic synthesis are expected to boost the growth rate of the glycol market. Also, growing demand of products such as coolants and antifreeze is the major factor that will likely uplift the glycol demand in the market during the forecast period of 2022-2029. 


  • Increasing demand of glycol in automotive industry

The rising demand for glycol in the automotive industry is anticipated to increase the growth of the global market. Ethylene glycol has a significantly lower melting point than water, which keeps engines of ethylene from freezing in the winter and works as a coolant to avoid overheating in the summer. Also, ethylene glycol is used in vehicles to absorb combustion heat which is expected to generate lucrative opportunities for the global glycol market.

Furthermore, augmented utilization in paints and coatings, food, pharmaceuticals, combined with use in aircraft de-icing fluid will create a surge in demand for glycol and will increase valuable opportunities for the market's growth rate.
