DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Glycol Ethers Market- Segmented by Type, End-User Industries, Application and Geography - Trends and Forecasts 2017 - 2022" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
The global glycol ethers 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. P-series can be divided into propylene-, dipropylene-, and tripropylene glycol ethers. Regarding application, the market is segmented into solvent, anti-icing agent, hydraulic brake fluid, chemical intermediate and others.
The market has also been geographically segmented into APAC, North America, Europe, South America, and MEA. In terms of consumption in 2016, Asia-Pacific leads the market for both the E-series and P-series glycol ethers, with China being the single largest consumer. The P-series consumption has recently shifted focus towards the Asian market from the European region, which dominated the market, earlier. This recent growth in the Asia-Pacific market is expected to continue during the forecast period, due to urbanization and industrialization.
