Mono Ethylene Glycol Price Trend

Mono Ethylene Glycol Market Analysis

The global mono ethylene glycol market size reached US$ 26.5 Billion in 2023. By 2032, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 37.6 Billion, at a projected CAGR of 4.00% during 2023-2032.

  • The demand for mono ethylene glycol (MEG) is propelled by the production of polyester fibers, resins, and films. There is a rise in the utilization of polyester fibers in PET bottles in packaging and textiles around the world. This, in turn, is driving the demand for MEG.
  • According to the IMARC Group’s report, the global textile market reached US$ 1,027.0 Billion in 2023 and is expected to reach US$ 1,445.4 Billion by 2032. The thriving textile industry in the emerging economies, where there is rise in the demand for polyester apparel and home furnishings, is positively influencing the MEG market.
  • MEG is gaining traction, as it is used in manufacturing antifreeze formulations, which are essential precursors in automotive and industrial applications. High demand for efficient antifreeze products in colder regions is highlighting the importance of MEG.
  • MEG demand is further amplified by rapid urbanization and economic growth, as these factors lead to the consumption of products that rely on MEG. With inflating income levels, people are purchasing more consumer goods, which is increasing the sales of MEG.
  • The global drive for sustainability and eco-friendly products is leading to the development of bio-based MEG, as industries are preferring products that assist in reducing their carbon footprints. People are also looking for environment friendly products as they are more aware about the negative impact on the environment and their health.
  • As per the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Earth was 2.45 degrees Fahrenheit warmer in 2023 as compared to the late 19th century preindustrial period. This increasing temperature is resulting in the rising utilization of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems worldwide. As a result, there is an increase in the demand for MEG as heat transfer fluids due to its ability to transfer heat efficiently.
  • Mono ethylene glycol has experienced a surge in production owing to its use to produce fiberglass, as it can improve the strength and durability of fiberglass composites.

Product Description

Mono ethylene glycol (MEG) is a colorless, odorless, and slightly viscous liquid with a high solubility for water, alcohols, and other organic compounds. Structurally, it consists of two hydroxyl groups, making it a diol.

Primarily produced through the hydration of ethylene oxide in high temperature and pressure, MEG comprises low freezing point, high boiling point, and hygroscopic nature. These qualities make it highly beneficial in applications involving solvent action, moisture retention, and thermal stability.

It serves as a key ingredient in the production of polyester fibers and resins like polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which is a pioneer in textile and packaging industries. Its utilization in the automotive industry on account of its ability to decrease the freezing point of aqueous solutions while increasing their boiling points, underscores its versatility in various applications.
