Abstract, Snapshot, Market Analysis & Market Definition: Global Glycol Market

The global glycol market size was estimated at USD 30.41 billion in 2018. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2019 to 2025. Derivatives of glycol are used across a wide range of sectors that include automotive & transportation, food & beverage processing, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), and polyester fibers. Recent turnaround in economic outlook of western markets, as a result of recovering manufacturing activities, has led to positive impact on the growth of the market.
During the time of increased regulatory oversight, glycols have come under intense scrutiny of agencies, such as the U.S. EPA and FDA, regarding their detrimental effects on human health. Though propylene glycol is classified as generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by FDA, the agency has stipulated acceptable daily intake levels to protect human health. Similarly, studies have been conducted by EPA regarding toxicology profile of glycols and prescribed recommendations for handling and usage of these chemicals.

Regulations, as stated above, cast a critical role on industrys dynamics, wherein compliance procedures, inventory protocols, and manufacturing standards evolve based on changes to existing policies. Such intervention at state-levels also give rise to greater emphasis on development expenditures of companies, which are generally dominated by changing customer preferences and product standards.
Across the chemicals industry, there is an evident effort by companies to improve efficiency of supply channels and reduce uncertainties associated with cost components. As the world opened-up to virtual marketplaces, the chemical sector has also caught up with the trend. Various online platforms, these days, sell chemicals (including glycols) to end-users through such portals.
From a consumers perspective, a virtual marketplace provides ease of procurement. Whereas, from a vendors perspective, costs associated with physical infrastructure can be reduced by marketing their products online. For the market, this trend has been instrumental in improving profit margins of companies and also broadens their customer base without vying for a physical presence in foreign markets.

The market, based on product, has been classified into propylene glycol (1,2-propanediol) and ethylene glycol (1,2-ethanediol). These products cater to a diverse range of application sectors. Propanediol is widely used in the manufacturing of polyester compounds and as a solvent, the chemical is used for food coloring, flavoring, paint dispersions, and plastic resin manufacturing.
Due to its inherent low toxicity, propylene glycol has been gaining traction as a substitute for ethylene glycol in antifreeze applications. As an antifreeze, 1,2-propanediol has found usage in the chemicals, food, and pharmaceutical sectors. However, as a substitute to ethylene glycol, the chemical in a 40:60 ratio of 1,2-propanediol:water has found greater utilization as an environment-friendly automotive and marine antifreeze.
Ethylene glycol is widely used as an antifreeze, coolant, and heat-transferring agent. In addition to its ability to bring down freezing point of fluids, the chemical also functions as a reagent in the production of polyesters, alkyd resins, synthetic waxes, and explosives. Furthermore, the ethylene-based glycols also find usage as an ingredient in printing inks, paint solvents, and hydraulic fluids.
Application Insights
Key industry sectors catered by the glycol market include automotive, polyester fibers & resins, pharmaceuticals, food & beverage processing, pipeline maintenance, textiles, aviation, medical, and HVAC. Post-recession economy of the world underwent structural changes in terms of trade policies, business localization & sustainability, and fiscal mechanisms.
As of 2018, the global GDP expanded by nearly 3.7%, as industrial activities recovered across developed nations and evolved considerably across developing parts. This growth in the global economy shaped a promising future for glycol manufacturers. Automotive will be the fastest growing application segment during the forecast period.

Globally, automotive production grew by 2.4% and reached 97.3 million units in 2017, with a few European countries, including Netherlands, Finland, Portugal, Slovenia, Russia, and Ukraine, registering double digit growth rates. Europe maintains a dominant role in glycol demand, positive macro indicators, as stated above, should be a source of optimizing the glycol industrys growth forecast.

Regional Insights
North America and Europe have traditionally been the powerhouse of manufacturing technologies and innovative approaches to build industry ecosystem. Although, these regions collectively accounted for nearly 50.0% of the global demand, the market has witnessed a large shift in production landscape towards Asian markets with China positioning itself as a regional as well as global hub for manufacturing.
In 2018, Asia Pacific accounted for nearly 43.0% of the global monoethylene glycol (MEG) production capacity and 44.0% of the global consumption. In terms of production, China, India and Taiwan led the region. In terms of consumption, China and India together accounted for nearly 85.0% of the regional demand and are characterized by presence of huge consumer base and export-oriented industrial production.
Glycol Market Share Insights
