Synopsis of Epichlorohydrin Market

Global Epichlorohydrin is expected to witness a significant growth of 2580.04 Kilo Tons by 2027 with a CAGR of 5.2% between 2019 and 2027.

Epichlorohydrin also known as ECH, chloromethyloxirane, 2, 3-epoxypropyl chloride, oxirane. Epichlorohydrin have features such as excellent resistance to hydrocarbon oils & fuels, excellent resistance to ozone & weathering, low solvent & gas permeability, and durability from low to high temperature.  Epichlorohydrin is used mainly for the production of epoxy resins, synthetic glycerin, water treatment chemicals, and others. Substantial growth in the demand of epoxy resins for various end-user industries anticipated to drive the epichlorohydrin market and high demand of synthetic glycerin due to increasing applications projected to drive the epichlorohydrin market. Epichlorohydrin is irritating and moderately toxic when it gets contact with skin and if swalloed, also it is carcinogenic. Hence concern of regulatory bodies regarding dangerous effects of epichlorohydrin on health as well as environment expected to hamper the global epichlorohydrin market growth.
