Global Diethylene Glycol Ether Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Diethylene glycol ether is a clear, colorless liquid with a sweet odor. It is used as an industrial solvent and as a component of brake fluid, antifreeze, and paint removers.


Diethylene glycol ether is a colorless liquid with a strong odor. It is used as an antifreeze, coolant, de-icing agent and solvent in various industries including pharmaceuticals, chemical processing and automotive. Solvent plays an important role in the overall diethylene glycol ether industry value chain starting from raw material to end use product. The major raw materials involved in its production include ethylene oxide and propylene oxide which are derivatives of crude oil.


Powder is a mixture of diethylene glycol and polyoxyethylene ethers. It is used as an additive in the formulation of various products such as detergents, wetting agents, solvents for adhesives and sealants among others. The global market for powder has been growing at a steady pace over the past few years on account of increasing demand from various end-use industries including personal care & cosmetics, food processing & packaging among others.

Application Insights:

The chemical segment dominated the global diethylene glycol ether market in terms of revenue share in 2017. The growth can be attributed to the extensive use as a solvent for paints and coatings, plasticizers for polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resins, and industrial solvents. In addition, it is used as an intermediate product in the production of other chemicals such as dyes and pigments, adhesives & sealants, surfactants/emulsifiers among others.

Diethylene glycol methyl ether is widely utilized as a solvent for paints owing to its low boiling point along with excellent penetration ability into substrates which enables rapid film formation on surfaces when exposed to this chemical compound.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest market for diethylene glycol ether, accounting for over 45% of global demand in 2016. The region is expected to witness significant growth on account of increasing pharmaceutical and food & beverage industries in China, India, and Japan. In addition, rapid industrialization coupled with government support is anticipated to drive the manufacturing sector in India which will result into increased consumption of DEGEE as a solvent.

Europe accounted for over 20% of global volume share owing to stringent regulations regarding VOC emissions by various governments coupled with low production volumes compared to Asia Pacific and North America. However, it is anticipated that Europe diethylene glycol ether market will grow at a CAGR exceeding 3% from 2017 to 2030 due high R&D investments made by major companies such as Segetis Limited; Stryker Corporation; Bioventus GmbH & Co.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for Diethylene Glycol Ether in various end-use industries such as automotive, construction, and pharmaceuticals is expected to drive the market growth.
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of using Diethylene Glycol Ether in various applications is projected to fuel the market growth over the forecast period.
  • Growing investments by leading players in research and development activities for developing new products is anticipated to propel the market growth during the forecast period.
  • Increasing use of Diethylene Glycol Ether as a solvent and plasticizer is likely to boost demand for this product over the next few years. 5
