The global glycol ether market size is expected to register a substantial CAGR during the forecast period, 2021–2028. The growth of the market is attributed to the increasing demand for personal care and cosmetics products. Moreover, expanding use of chemical compound in paint & coating industry is expected to drive the market growth.

Glycol ethers are class of solvents based of alkyl ethers of propylene or ethylene glycol. Depending on their formation, ethylene oxide and propylene oxide are divided into P-series and E-series. They are generally used as solvents in different industries such as coatings and paints. P-series glycol ethers are generally used in aerosols and cleaners, while E-series glycol ethers are used as coalescing aids in paint formulation. Other applications include ink, textile, agriculture, and adhesive products.

Glycol Ether Market summary

The demand for P-series is more than the E-series due to their low toxicity level. Methyl ether acetate are extensively used in ink application. Propylene glycol butyl ether demand is high owing to its usage in laboratory products, treatment of metals & non-metals, and in water treatment formulation.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Rapid growth in the commercial and residential sector is expected to drive the market growth.
  • According to World Bank, the expenditure on the construction industry is increasing at a rapid pace, spurring the demand for glycol ether during the forecast period.
  • Stringent REACH and EPA guidelines with respect to the utilization of glycol ethers and rising number of alternatives, such as cellulosic ethanol, to use as a dissolvable for cleaning agents can restrain the development of the market.
  • Improving flow characteristics of glycol ether can create lucrative opportunities for market players in the projected timeline.
