Ethylene Oxide Market
is one of the most versatile chemical intermediates. It is mainly used in the production of ethylene glycidol, surfactants, ethanol amines and glycol ethers. Ethylene oxide production on an industrial scale is carried out, mainly, by the direct oxidation of ethylene.
Ethylene oxide market consists of an oxide that is also known as oxirane which is an organic compound. It’s a colorless and inflammable gas. ETO sterilization is widely used across various industries for production of solvents, detergents, adhesives, antifreeze, textiles, and pharmaceuticals. Ethylene oxide is also present in steam sterilization for cosmetics and spices, fumigants, in hospitals for sterility of surgical equipment, etc.
Ethylene oxide market with the growing demand for PET resins and polyester fibers is expected to drive the global market. The ethylene oxide uses are also being utilized in the fields of food and beverages and textile industries. Another driver includes the increasing demand for ethylene glycol antifreeze in automobile industries where antifreeze is used to lower the freezing point of water based liquid in the vehicles.
The restraints which are restricting the growth of ethylene oxide reaction in the global market are the fluctuations in crude oil prices in the market. This is very important raw material for ethylene oxide and also the governing issues. The demand for non-ionic surfactants is increasing day by day and becoming a chance to increase in demand for ethylene oxides globally. This, in turn, has been fueling demand for ethylene oxide and ethylene glycol in the past decade. In addition, growth has been aided through demand from the automotive industry and textile manufacturers.
Overall demand for ethylene market is broadly tied to the general economy and has been increasingly linked to emerging countries. The improvements and the living standards are driving an increasing usage of a broad spectrum of polymers and chemicals that are further used for the production of packaging, films, textile fibers, etc., over the coming 4-5 years, for the progressive demand. Asia-Pacific is dominating in the market in terms of volume as well as revenue, due to increasing industrialization in the region. North America and Europe focus on the growth of this compound owing to increasing demand for ethylene oxide.
