Bio-Based Propylene Glycol Market Information- by Application (Unsaturated Polyester Resin, Solvent, Antifreeze & Coolant, Chemical Intermediates, and Others), by End Use Industry (Cosmetics, Building & Construction, Automotive, Pharmaceutical, Detergent & Household and Others) and By Region- Forecast till 2023


Pune, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/14/2018 -- Bio-Based Propylene Glycol is produced by the process Hydrogenolysis in which glycerin is converted into propylene glycol. It is colorless, odorless, non-toxic, and slightly viscous liquid. They are hygroscopic substance and used as a humectant in cosmetics. Bio-Based Propylene Glycol is considered to be the prominent raw material for various industrial applications. It is used as an antifreeze & coolant, chemical intermediates, unsaturated polyester resin, and solvent in numerous end use industries such as detergent & household, cosmetics, automotive, pharmaceutical, and construction.

The Global Bio-Based Propylene Glycol Market is predicted to grow at a moderate CAGR over the forecast period. Rising demand for bio-based propylene glycol solvent from the growing detergent & household industry is expected to drive market growth in the upcoming years. Increasing usage of unsaturated polyester resin in various reinforced plastic application is predicted to fuel market growth. Bio-Based Propylene Glycol is widely used as coolant and antifreeze material owing to its low freezing point and high viscosity thus increased its importance in automotive and general industry. Increasing automotive production and sales in developed as well as developing countries is expected to raise Bio-Based Propylene Glycol demand over the next six years. The increasing demand for non-ionic surfactant and growing demand for Propylene Glycol Based adhesives, emulsifiers and lubricants is predicted to boost up the market growth. Moreover, the ample availability of glycerin (obtained as a byproduct of biodiesel) is also one of the important factor prompting companies to shift their focus towards Bio-Based Propylene production.
