Global Forecast for Propylene Glycol Market (2020 to 2024) - Drivers, Restraints, Opportunities & Challenges -

DUBLIN--()--The "Propylene Glycol Market by Source (Petroleum-based, Bio-based), Grade (Industrial, Pharmaceutical), End-use Industry (Transportation, Building & Construction, Food & Beverage, Pharmaceuticals, Cosmetics & Personal Care), Region - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to's offering.

The global propylene glycol market is expected to reach USD 4.7 billion by 2024 from USD 3.8 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 4.4%.

The growth is primarily due to the massive industrial growth in APAC and the Middle East & Africa, coupled with the rise in process automation in most of the industries. The factors restraining the growth of this market are the high cost of bio-based propylene glycol.

Petroleum-based propylene glycol to be the larger segment by source in the global market

The market for petroleum-based propylene glycol is projected to be the largest from 2019 to 2024. The rising demand from the construction and transportation industries is fueling the growth of the petroleum-based propylene glycol market.

Transportation to be the largest end-use industry segment of the propylene glycol market during the forecast period

Transportation is projected to be the largest end-use industry segment of the global propylene glycol market from 2019 to 2024. The growth is mainly due to the rising demand for propylene glycol in automotive coolants and aircraft wings & surface applications. Continuing economic development and increasing disposable income are also driving the global propylene glycol market in the transportation industry.

APAC set to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period, in terms of both volume and value

APAC is the largest propylene glycol market. The high growth of the emerging economies and the increasing disposable income in the region make APAC an attractive market for propylene glycol. The tremendous growth of industrial production and increased trade are primarily responsible for the high consumption of propylene glycols.
