Global Propylene Glycol Market: Overview
The global Propylene Glycol market is estimated to grow at a significant rate, during the forecast period 2018-2025. Propylene Glycol is a synthetic liquid substance that absorbs water. Propylene glycol is clear, colorless, slightly syrupy liquid at room temperature. Propylene glycol is practically odorless and tasteless. Propylene glycol is used to make polyester compounds. Propylene glycol is used by the chemical, food, and pharmaceutical industries as an antifreeze when leakage might lead to contact with food. Propylene Glycol is a solvent for food colors and flavors and in the paint and plastics industries. Propylene glycol is also used to create artificial smoke or fog used in fire-fighting training and in theatrical productions.
The growing demand for Propylene Glycol in the food processing industry and pharmaceuticals Industry are vital factors expected to encourage the growth of the global Propylene Glycol market in the upcoming period. In addition, growing trends towards the application of polypropylene in the automotive industry to reduce the weight of the vehicle for increasing fuel efficiency are other factors estimated to accelerate the growth of the market in the next few years. Moreover, application of Propylene glycol (PG) to manufacture unsaturated polyester resins (UPRs), which is majorly consumed in in the construction, marine and transportation industries will also fuel the growth of Propylene Glycol market in the forecast period. Furthermore, uses of propylene glycol in making unsaturated polyester resins that is reinforced with fiberglass which is used in building panels, bathroom components, fixtures , corrosion-resistant tanks, pipes ,ducts, boats, passenger cars, trucks and recreational vehicles and major appliances will contribute in the growth of Propylene Glycol market in upcoming periods.
Additionally, application of Propylene Glycol as an ingredient in engine coolants, deicing fluids, antifreeze and which are also helpful in making base fluid for aircraft deicing formulations and a coolant in the food industry will boom the global propylene glycol market. Uses of propylene glycol broad as a humectant in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, animal food and tobacco industries will drive the Propylene Glycol market over the forecast period.
