Scope of the Study
Monoethylene glycol (MEG) is defined as the organic compound which is syrupy liquid, colorless, odorless, with a sweet taste. It is produced from ethylene via ethylene oxide that is hydrated through the thermal or else catalytic process. It is used as antifreeze for different uses such as preserving biological tissues & organs or as de-icing fluids. It is a significant raw material for the number of industrial applications including manufacturing namely polyethylene terephthalate, manufacturing of polyester fiber, fabrics, among others. The growing use of monoethylene glycol in polyester fiber and polyethylene terephthalate industries are some of the major drivers which are propelling the growth of the market. The market for the monoethylene glycol is expected to register a CAGR of over 5.2% during the forecast period.
The market study is being classified by Type (Fiber Grade MEG, Industrial Grade MEG and Antifreeze Grade MEG), by Application (Polyester Resins, Antifreeze and Coolants, Chemical Intermediates, Heat Transfer Fluids and Others) and major geographies with country level break-up.
SABIC (Saudi Arabia), Formosa (Taiwan), Dow Chemical International Private Limited (United States), BASF (Germany), MEGlobal (United Arab Emirates), Sinopec (China), Shell (Netherlands), Reliance (India), SIBUR (Russia) and Lotte Chemical (South Korea) are some of the key players profiled in the study. Additionally, the Vendors which are also part of the research are Eastman Chemical Company (United States), Exxon Mobil Corporation (United States), Huntsman Corporation (United States), Ineos Oxide (United Kingdom), Indian Oil (India), India Glycols (India), Indorama (Indonesia), Akzo Nobel (Netherlands), Clariant (Switzerland), LG Chem (South Korea), Mitsui Chemicals (Japan), Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (Japan) and Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (Kuwait).
The market is fragmented with numerous players focusing on technique and quality of the product due to which the global mono-ethylene glycol market can witness an upsurge in the forecast period. Research Analyst at AMA predicts that United States Vendors will contribute to the maximum growth of Global Mono Ethylene Glycol market throughout the predicted period.
AdvanceMarketAnalytics has segmented the market of Global Mono Ethylene Glycol market by Type, Application and Region.
On the basis of geography, the market of Mono Ethylene Glycol has been segmented into South America (Brazil, Argentina, Rest of South America), Asia Pacific (China, Japan, India, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, Rest of Asia-Pacific), Europe (Germany, France, Italy, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Rest of Europe), MEA (Middle East, Africa), North America (United States, Canada, Mexico).
