DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Glycol Ethers Market- Segmented by Type, End-User Industries, Application and Geography - Trends and Forecasts (2016 - 2021)" report to their offering.
Glycol ethers are most commonly used as solvents, which account for more than half of the total glycol ether consumption, in 2015. They are used in various end-user industries such as paints and coatings, where they are used as solvents and coalescing agents. They are also used in the printing industry (in inks), cosmetics and personal care, pharmaceuticals and adhesive industry.
The market is mainly driven by an increase in the use of glycol ethers in cosmetics and personal care products. The growing end-user industries will directly lead to the increase in demand for glycol ether, thus boosting the market. However, certain drawbacks like the volatile prices of raw material and the growing environmental and health concerns leading to various regulations regarding its use may act as roadblocks to the growth of the market.
The glycol ethers market, on the basis of synthesis route, can be categorized into either E-series or P-series. E-series are ethylene oxide-based, whereas P-series are propylene oxide-based. P-series glycol ethers have a larger market share and are growing fast due to the concerns regarding the toxicological effects of some E-series glycol ethers. E-series can further be divided into methyl-, ethyl-, and butyl glycol ethers.
