Propylene Glycol Market Research Report Forecast To 2028

The Global Propylene Glycol Market is forecast to reach USD 2,999.5 Million by 2028, according to a new report by Reports and Data.


The Global Propylene Glycol Market is forecast to reach USD 2,999.5 Million by 2028, according to a new report by Reports and Data. Propylene Glycol (MPG) is a clear, colorless, odorless, hygroscopic, water-soluble, industrial and commercial chemical and viscous liquid. Propylene Glycol is mostly used in the manufacture of non-ionic detergents which are used in the petroleum, sugar-refining, and paper-making industries and are also widely utilized as an intermediate solvent the production of high-performance unsaturated polyester resins used in paints and varnishes. Shampoos, soaping agent, bubble baths, baby wipes, and moisturizer in make-up are some of its applications in cosmetics production. The continuous expansion of the cosmetics personal care products, paint coatings, inks, anti-freezing and industrial coolants, hydraulic fluids, and detergents are expected to drive the demand throughout the forecast period. Growing demand for excipients in pharmaceutical industries for long term stabilization of the medicines, the growth is being mobilized substantially.

Further key findings from the report suggest:

  • Propylene glycol is a very safe chemical compound and suitable to be used as a direct solvent in various chemical formulations. Non-ionic detergents, anti-freezing agents, deicers, humectant food additive, and moisturizing agents, to name a few, are some of its end-use applications. The direct solvent is forecasted to reach a market share of 52.6% by 2027 growing with a rate of 5.5% during the period 2019 – 2027.
  • Chemical intermediate segment is measured to gain a market revenue of USD 0.52 Billion by 2027 and the CAGR is forecasted to be 5.9% in the forecast period. Propylene glycol is utilized as a chemical intermediate in the manufacture of high-performance unsaturated polyester resins for making the bathtubs, water or chemical tank, and others.
  • The most common source is the Propylene Oxide (PO) and the usual process of manufacturing is the non-catalytic hydrolysis of propylene oxide in a high-temperature and a high-pressure environment. The catalytic process involves the ion exchange resin or a small amount of presence of sulfuric acid or alkali. The bio-based processing from glycerol source require higher initial investment for an extensive refining process of the bio-diesel by-product.
  • Growing penetration of the online retailing businesses for the chemicals and materials especially in the emerging nations in Asia Pacific is helping the market grow by broadening the outreach in the areas where the offline vendors are unavailable. Also, due to the non-involvement of the distributors in the supply chain model, the profit margin is way more than that of the offline retailing. The online retailing is expected to gain a market share of 34.1% by 2027.

Market Overview:

Consumers are placing a higher importance on sustainability and, as a result, are choosing items based on factors like circularity and carbon footprint. Furthermore, consumer concern about carbon emissions has prompted increased investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency, and transportation decarbonization. These developments have had considerable impact on chemical end sectors, particularly in the automobile and construction industries. COVID-19 has exacerbated the situation by lowering the automobile and construction industries (as well as many others) and disrupting current supply lines.
