According to a recent market study published by Growth Market Reports titled, “Global Polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG) Market by Types, Applications, End-users and Region: Size, Share, Trends and Opportunity Analysis, 2017-2027”, the market was valued at USD 2,649.3 Million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a growth rate of 3.6% by the year 2027.

The global polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG) market is anticipated to grow owing to the rise in the use of polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG) as a solvent in several chemical processes. The polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG) also finds its application in the manufacturing of rubber products. These are also used for the manufacturing of several products including cellophane, adhesives, magnetic tape, and printing inks. The rising disposable income has led to the rise in the demand for the stretch fabrics, which has led to the rise in the use of the polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG) in the manufacturing of fabrics.

The rise in the demand for the enhanced quality products has led to the rise in the demand for the polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG). The rise in construction activities has led to the rise in the demand for the adoption of the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipes, which are manufactured by using the polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG). The PVC pipes are widely used in households. Polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG) is an essential component, which is used for the manufacturing of PVC adhesives, PVC film casting, and PVC reactor cleaning. The wide application of the Polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG) in manufacturing industry has led to the rise in the demand for the Polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG). These are some of the factors, which contributes for the demand for the Polytetrahydrofuran (PTMEG).
