Propylene glycol is well-known for its unique combination of properties that fulfills various roles in different applications. It is used as a solvent, emulsifier, excipient, humectant, and hygroscopic agent and thus finds their usage in various industries for one or more applications. The major application is unsaturated polyester resin, which accounted for ~35% in terms of value of the global propylene glycol market in 2013, followed by the pharmaceuticals & cosmetics, antifreeze & functional fluids, liquid detergents, and plasticizers.

Europe is the biggest market of propylene glycol, consuming a major share of ~29% of market in terms of value in 2013. There is tremendous scope in the Asia-Pacific market due to the escalation of China’s economy and rapid industrialization in the region. Currently, the penetration of propylene glycol is increasing in pharmaceuticals & cosmetics application resulting in the market size in terms of value projected to grow at the high CAGR of 6.1% between 2014 and 2019. The increased domestic production of bio-based propylene glycol is further adding to the rising demand of propylene glycol in pharmaceuticals & cosmetics application in Asia-pacific region.

The increasing cost of the conventional feedstock and regulations on conventional chemicals are acting as major barriers for the growth of propylene glycol market. However, the negative environmental impact of the conventional propylene glycol is anticipated to drive the demand for bio-based propylene glycol globally. Expansion (facility and capacity) and partnership & collaboration are identified as key strategies which are helping the major players to further expand their reach in the global propylene glycol market
