Propylene Oxide Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025

Market Overview:

The global propylene oxide market grew at a CAGR of around 6% during 2014-2019. Propylene oxide (C3H6O), also known as epoxypropane, is a synthetic cyclic ether majorly produced by either the dehydrochlorination of propylene chlorohydrin or the indirect oxidation of propylene. It is a clear, volatile liquid that is flammable, non-corrosive to metals, and soluble in water and alcohol. As a result, it is extensively utilized in the automotive, electronics, textile & furnishing, and as a precursor in the production of various chemicals. It is also applied as a fumigant for controlling bacterial contamination and insect infestations in soil and packaged food products. Besides this, minor quantities of propylene oxide are used for sterilizing medical equipment.

The market growth can be attributed to the expanding applications of propylene oxide in various end use industries. For instance, polyether polyols and propylene glycol ethers produced from propylene oxide, are widely utilized in the textile, automotive, construction and aerospace industries. It is also used as a transition fluid in tissue processing for transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Apart from this, changing lifestyles, burgeoning food and beverage (F&B) industry and the growing health consciousness among individuals are escalating the demand for packaged food products, which, in turn, is contributing to the market growth. Currently, on account of the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), lockdowns have been imposed by governments of numerous countries as a preventive measure to contain the pandemic. Consequently, operational activities of various industries have been adversely affected, which, in turn, is negatively impacting the market growth. However, the sales of propylene oxide are expected to increase once normalcy is regained. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global propylene oxide market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
