Polyglycerol Market OverviewPolyglycerol are glycerol ethers formed by the condensation of glycerol molecules. They are viscous hydroscopic liquid that is soluble in alcohol, glycerol, and water in all proportions. Polyglycerols are commonly produced through mixing glycerol with an alkaline metal-based catalyst such as sodium or potassium hydroxide, at high temperature of 250–300°C. It is widely used as thickeners, solubilizers, additives, inert ingredients, antifogging agents, and spreading agents.
The growing application of polyglycerols as food additives to improve properties such as flavor, color, texture, and shelf life is expected to boost its demand in food & beverage industry. It is used in food products such as salad dressings, peanut butter, chocolate, margarine, and frozen desserts, among others. With the growing population, the demand for food has increased at a significant rate. The declining unemployment rate in emerging countries such as India, Indonesia, Brazil, and others has resulted in economic growth. Furthermore, the increasing consumption of ready-to-eat food coupled with rapid urbanization and increasing per capita disposable income as well as technological developments such as climate control storage and pasteurization is expected to fuel the growth of the food industry.
Another major driver of the global polyglycerol market is its use as a moisture-retaining agent and thickener for personal care & cosmetics products. The high disposable income of the consumers and rising awareness about personal care and consciousness about appearance has resulted in high demand for personal care & cosmetics products. Additionally, the polyglycerol-based lubricants are being used in automotive industry as they reduce the fuel consumption rate in vehicles, which is further expected to propel the polyglycerol demand in coming years. The rapid adoption of polyglycerol in textile lubricants, drilling fluids, and wastewater treatment is expected to propel the polyglycerol market in the forecast period
However, the volatile raw material prices for the production of polyglycerol is a major restraining factor to the growth of the market.
Players in this market are focused on strategic growth initiatives such as product launch, expansion, and collaboration, among others to meet the rising demand for the product and to strengthen their positions in the global market. For instance, on 3 April 2019, Lonza launched a new product line of polyglycerol esters, SYNETH, which are extremely versatile non-ionic emulsifiers and surfactants. The products are used for leave-on and rinse-off applications for skin, hair, and scalp care.
The global polyglycerol market, by region, has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa.
Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest market share in 2018 on the backdrop of high demand for polyglycerol in major end-use industries, especially in food & beverage, personal care & cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. The prime factors driving the market include declining unemployment rate, increasing disposable income, and improving standards of living. International cosmetics brands such as Revlon, L’Oreal, Maybelline, and MAC, among others entering Asian markets is further projected to fuel the demand for cosmetics products. The market in Asia-Pacific is also projected to be the fastest-growing market.
The market in Europe and North America is projected to witness significant demand for polyglycerol due to the high demand in the food & beverage, personal care, pharmaceutical, and automotive industry. The stringent regulations regarding reducing the vehicular emission are expected to drive the demand for polyglycerol-based lubricants.
Rapid industrialization in emerging economies such as Brazil and Chile are expected to drive the product demand in Latin America during the forecast period.
Recent Development News•May 2021 - Palsgaard launches a new PGPR (polyglycerol polyricinoleate) product, which would offer chocolate manufacturers more functionality and efficiency. PGPR is used in chocolate production for mould optimization, flow control and viscosity reduction. Palsgaard PGPR 4190 is designed for chocolate spreads and enrobed and moulded products. Developed exclusively for chocolate, Palsgaard PGPR 4190 is 15 per cent more efficient at controlling viscosity than Palsgaard PGPR 4150, and can be used at a dose 30 to 40 per cent lower than other PGPRs.•April 2021 - The Indian Council of Agriculture Research - Indian Institute of Spices Research, Kerala, India has been granted the patent for its Seed Coating composition as well as its preparation.
