Diethylene Glycol Market Overview


The Diethylene Glycol market growth is projected to grow at a staggering CAGR rate of 4.8% during the forecast period of 2021-2028. Also, the expected market valuation by the end of the period is compiled at USD 3.8 billion. These projections have been made after gaining deep market insights and the performance of the key market players across the globe.


Diethylene glycol (DEG) can be understood in the form of a chemical that has its synthesis by conducting the partial hydrolysis of the ethylene oxide compound. This is a colorless substance that goes low on viscosity and can be recognized as a low volatile liquid that has a sweet taste. This compound dissolves fully in substances like water, alcohol, organic solvents, and acetone. Therefore, this product has wide use in the form of a solvent across various industry uses like textile dyes and paint pigments alongside resins, printing process, and oils.


 Also, this is gaining recognition as raw material and is being used for manufacturing products like polyester resigns, thermoplastic polyurethanes, and plasticizers. Also, the paper and pulp industry is recognizing a vibrant use of this product alongside other industries like tobacco manufacturers and leather processing, which will positively impact the market operations by the end of the forecast period in 2028.


COVID 19 Analysis


Since the declaration of the pandemic as a public healthcare emergency, many businesses and production units are facing a lot of troubles. The diethylene glycol production and manufacturing activities have been hampered due to strict functional restrictions and lockdown imposition. The unavailability of the workforce due to the pandemic is further hurting the production volumes that are hindering the smooth functioning of the supply chain mechanism amongst the global market. The pandemic has led to a decrease in production activities, resulting in bringing down the demand for market products like plastics and paint coatings, amongst others.


The government is investing in research and development initiatives and is also collaborating with prominent market players to develop products and launch them on a large scale to help the market reach its defined objectives during the forecasted period.
