Market Overview:

The global polypropylene glycol market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for polypropylene glycols from various end-use industries, such as intermediate, solvent, skin care and cosmetics, and others. Polypropylene glycols are used as solvents in various applications such as pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, flavors and fragrances, paints and coatings, textiles printing Inks etc. They are also used in the manufacture of plasticsizers for PVC processing; surfactants; lubricating oils; hydraulic fluids; heat transfer fluids; textile finishes etc.

Global Polypropylene Glycol Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Polypropylene glycol (PPG) is a synthetic liquid polymer that is widely used in the manufacture of textiles, plastics, and other industrial products. It has a number of important properties, including good resistance to water and chemicals, low viscosity, and high tensile strength. These qualities make it an ideal additive for many products that require durability and flexibility. PPG can also be used as a base for paints and coatings because it helps improve adhesion and reduce the chances of cracking or peeling.

Polypropylene Glycol 230:

Polypropylene glycol 230 is a transparent, odorless, water-soluble polymer. It has applications in paints and coatings, printing inks and adhesives. Polypropylene glycol 230 is also used as an additive for polyvinyl chloride resins to improve processability at low temperatures.

The global polypropylene market size was valued at USD 33 billion in 2015.

Polypropylene Glycol 400:

It is a transparent, odorless, tasteless liquid that has high chemical and heat resistance. It can be used as an antifog agent in swimming pools and to prevent the formation of ice on water bodies. Polypropylene glycol 400 (PPG400) is also known as 1-butoxy-2-ethylhexanol or BPEH. It is a clear, viscous liquid with an odor similar to that of butyl alcohol.

Application Insights:

Skin care and cosmetics was the largest application segment in 2017, accounting for over 55% of the global market. Increasing demand for skin care products due to rising consumer awareness regarding personal hygiene is expected to drive growth. Rising preference towards lightweight and water-based polypropylene glycols as skin care ingredients owing to their moisturizing properties is also likely to have a positive impact on market growth.

Increasing use of PPG in manufacturing creams, lotions, ointments and gels on account of its superior emulsification property is projected to propel demand over the forecast period.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the dominant regional market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounts for a major share of global production owing to cheap labor, raw material availability, and land availability. China is one of the largest producers as well as consumers of propylene oxide across the globe.

The demand for polypropylene glycol in Europe has been witnessing significant growth due to rising applications in various industries including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food processing & packaging among others.

North America accounted for a significant share of global revenue owing to high consumer awareness regarding health issues associated with using synthetic chemical solvents such as butadiene and styrene along with their derivatives such as plasticizers.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from end-use industries such as automotive, construction, and packaging is expected to drive the growth of the polypropylene glycol market.
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of using polypropylene glycols is projected to fuel its demand in various end-use industries over the forecast period.
  • Growing investments by key players in research and development activities for new product launches is likely to propel the growth of this market during the forecast period.
  • Stringent environmental regulations regarding VOC emissions are expected to create opportunities for polypropylene glycols over the next few years.
