Propylene glycol (C3H8O2) is a viscous, stable and hygroscopic liquid manufactured via the hydration of propylene oxide. It is colorless, miscible with water and several organic solvents, and can dissolve in several resins, dyes and essential oils. It is utilized as a humectant, preservative, solvent and emollient in a wide range of personal care products, such as creams, lotions, serums and shampoos. Besides this, it is also used in the production of inks, adhesives, cleaners, antifreeze, laminates, engine coolants, industrial solvents, chemical intermediates, unsaturated polyester resins (UPR), non-ionic detergents, and paints and coatings.
Propylene glycol is extensively used to improve the texture, flavor, appearance and shelf life of various processed food products. A significant rise in the consumption of processed foods, on account of hectic lifestyles, changing dietary patterns and the growing working population, represents one of the key factors stimulating the market growth. Apart from this, the growth in the construction and transportation industry is further leading to the increasing demand of propylene glycol in various industrial chemicals such as deicing fluids, automotive coolants, hydraulic & brake fluids etc. The growing pharmaceutical industry, wherein propylene glycol is used as a drug solubilizer, is also contributing to the market growth. The manufacturers in the industry are focusing on bio-based chemicals for producing propylene glycol due to growing environmental concerns, which is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Additionally, on account of the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), there is an increase in the demand for propylene glycol in the manufacturing of hand sanitizers and surface disinfectants.
