The rapidly growing demand for unsaturated polyester resins in the transportation, construction, automobile, and marine industries is expected to support the growth of the propylene glycol market. During the winter, the demand for the product is largely driven by the food and cosmetics industries, as well as the airline industry, due to the application of ethylene glycol as a de-icing and anti-freezing agent. The growth in automobiles, construction, and pharmaceutical industries in the Asia Pacific region is expected to be a key factor in the expansion of the global propylene glycol market. Due to rising environmental standards, various industries are increasing the use of propylene glycol as it is less toxic and has fewer side-effects than its substitutes.

Market Trends

Ineos, one of the global leaders of propylene glycol, marked a new high for propylene glycol prices in 2018, due to a very long and cold winter. As climate change exacerbates, it is predicted that propylene glycol may show increased demand especially in Europe and North America due to its use as a de-icing and anti-freezing agent. An increase in prices during winter has historically shown to keep prices up during summer as well. Sadara Chemical Co, a joint venture between Dow Inc. (NYSE:DOW) and Saudi Aramco (TADAWUL: 2222), started production at a new propylene glycol plant in 2017. This is in response to the rising demand for the chemical in the region.
