The report points out that the growing demand for polyester fiber in Asia Pacific has boosted the growth of the global monoethylene glycol market. The increasing production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) will further augment the market growth during the forecast horizon. However, the report states that the fluctuating prices of feedstock materials are expected to restrain the market. Monoethylene glycol is produced from ethylene, which is a downstream product of natural gas and crude oil. Hydration of ethylene-intermediator ethylene oxide produces monoethylene glycol. The fluctuating prices of crude oil and natural gas will negatively impact the production of monoethylene glycol. Further, sustainability issues related to monoethylene glycol are anticipated to hamper the market, especially across the developed economies. The overall market has a huge opportunity to grow with the production of bio-based monoethylene glycol (MEG) and the emerging application of monoethylene glycol in solar panels.
In terms of application, the report segments the global monoethylene glycol market into PET, polyester fiber, antifreeze, and others. In 2014, the demand for monoethylene glycol was the highest for application in polyester. However, during the forecast horizon, the application of PET is projected to witness the fastest growth due to the growing usage of PET as packaging materials across the food and beverage industry. Low cost and high durability of PET have contributed significantly towards the growth of the application segment. In fact, PET is expected to be the most attractive segment in the market in the coming years.
The report studies the global monoethylene glycol market across five key regions: Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa. The market is expected to grow significantly in Asia Pacific with increased production of polyester fiber in the region.
The report profiles some of the key players in the global monoethylene glycol market such as Royal Dutch Shell plc, Sinopec Zhenhai Refining & Chemical Company, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (MCC), Saudi Arabia Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC), Nan Ya Plastics Corporation, Reliance Industries Limited, BASF SE, The Dow Chemical Company, Lotte Chemical Corporation, and LyondellBasell Industries N.V.
