Customer Glycol Ethers Industry Report by Regional Category Spend, Price Analysis, Key Demand, Price Indicators, and Best Buying Practices


The global glycol ethers market reached a volume of about 2.79 MMT in 2021. The industry is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 4.1% in the forecast period of 2022-2027 to reach a volume of 3.64 MMT by 2027.

The glycol ethers industry report comprehensively analyses the industry, including key segments, trends, drivers, restraints, the competitive landscape, and other essential market aspects. With the growth in residential and commercial construction activities globally, there has been a considerable rise in the demand for glycol ethers for their utilisation in the production of paints and coatings. The key demand indicator in the industry report is the highest category spender by region — Asia Pacific.

Industry Definition and Segmentation

Glycol ethers belong to a set of organic solvents built on alkyl ethers of ethylene glycol or propylene glycol. These composites are substantially utilised as solvents in manufacturing paints and cleaners. Glycol ethers are categorised into two classes, E-series, and P-series. This categorisation relies on the chemical using which the glycol ethers are produced comprising ethylene oxide and propylene oxide. It is popularly used as a solvent in several industries, such as paints and coatings, adhesives, and personal care. The majority of the glycol ethers are water-soluble, and biodegradable while some of them are considered to be poisonous. The global glycol ether industry report comprises segments based on service type (E-Series and P-Series), application (paintings, coatings and adhesives, cleaners, automotive, printing inks, pharma and cosmetics, chemical intermediates, and electronic and semiconductors), and regions (North America, Europe, Latin America, the Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa).

The Asia Pacific Region is Driving the Growth of the Industry

Asia Pacific region holds a prominent position in the global glycol ethers market owing to the rise in the industrial and construction activities in emerging nations like India, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Vietnam. Aside from this due to the increase in the demand for personal care products the market is growing further in the region. Additionally, a high level of modernisation and a rise in the income of the people has intensified the demand for glycol ethers in the textile industry.

One of the primary reasons for the rising demand for glycol ethers is their elevated usage in the paint and coatings industry. Due to increasing urbanisation and the number of construction activities, there is a surge in the demand for paints and coatings in the market that is resulting in the growth of the utilisation of glycol ethers. Furthermore, it finds extensive usage in the manufacturing of personal care products, including cosmetics and sunscreens. An increase in disposable income and purchasing power of the consumers across the globe has also led to the heightened demand for personal care and cosmetic products and the favourable properties of the chemical make it an important solvent to prepare various personal care products are in turn leading to the substantial demand for glycol ethers as a raw material.

The guidelines and standards imposed on the usage of glycol ethers are acting as the key restraint for the global glycol ethers market. Moreover, prolonged exposure to excessive quantities of glycol ethers has been identified to bring about lowered fertility and congenital infirmities in humans and animals.

Best Procurement Practices

The global glycol ethers industry report by Procurement Resource gives an in-depth analysis of the best buying practices followed by glycol ethers producing and utilising regions across the globe, such as contract terms, engagement models, and buyer and supplier negotiation levers, among others.

Category Management Studies

Glycol ethers are manufactured by bonding ethylene oxide (EO) or propylene oxide (PO) together with an alcohol such as methanol, ethanol, propanol, butanol, or hexanol. This procedure is conducted under adiabatic and isothermal conditions. Esterification of glycol ethers with acetic acid helps in the formation of equivalent acetate ester; more than 30 combinations exist with these products.

The Growing Demand in the End-Use Industries is Further Driving the Market

The paints and coating industry is leading the international glycol ethers market, due to the increasing industrialisation and automation. Besides, the fast development of infrastructure in developing economies such as China, India, and Brazil has heightened the demand for paints and coatings. Furthermore, the rise in the application of corrosion inhibitor coatings in metal commodities like in the automotive industry, aerospace industry, and military industry is propelling the development of the market. Additionally, the high boiling point and the other positive solvent goodness of the glycol ethers make the composite one of the main chemicals used during the production of different items in the personal care division.

The major zones in the industry are North America, Europe, Latin America, the Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa.

  • Shell Chemicals

Market Landscape

The P-Series segment based on the series type has ruled the global glycol ethers market, because of its high demand for manufacturing personal care products and rise in the perception amongst the people regarding healthcare and its benefits the personal care products. Low levels of harmfulness and less surface friction properties of glycol ethers make them appropriate for the use of body washes, soaps, and shampoos. In addition, the paints and coating segment based on end-user industries is leading the global ethers market, due to the high level of industrialisation and automation.

Key Initiatives by Companies

  • In June 2018, there was an announcement by the Dow Chemical Company (DOW) about a series of phased, incremental investments to enlarge its worldwide glycol ethers capability to fulfil the escalating demand in important end markets and applications.
