Summary

Table of Contents

Ethylene Glycol (EG) is an organic compound which is highly reactive and it is used as a monomer in the production of polyesters and PET (the plastic used in water and beverage bottles packaging). There are three categories of ethylene glycol such as mono-ethylene glycol (MEG), diethylene glycol (DEG) and triethylene glycol (TEG).

MEG is produced by the noncatalytic liquid-phase hydration of ethylene oxide. MEG arises by adding EO to water and then is heated to 190'C, after which the blend is dispensed into a reactor. The reactor, in addition to heat, carries significant compression to the EO input. DEG and TEG are coproducts with ethylene glycol in this procedure. MEG has several properties such as chemical intermediates for resins, humectants, solvent coupler, freezing point depression and solvent. The Asian ethylene glycol market has been segmented by type, end-user application and country level segmentation exclusively.

The main factor owing to the growth of this industry is growth in usage of plastics (PET) in the food and beverages packaging sector. As per the recent trends, approximately 60% of PET consumption will come from the packaged beverages sector in 2015.

In terms of products type in the market, Mono-ethylene glycol is dominating the market followed by diethylene glycol (DEG) and triethylene glycol (TEG).

some of the major suppliers of ethylene glycol are :
China Petrochemical Corporation,
NAN YA PLASTICS Corporation,
Reliance Industries Limited,
