Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/15/2017 -- The report states that the global polyalkylene glycol (PAG) market is expected to expand at a moderate 11.0% CAGR during the forecast period from 2015 to 2023. In 2014, the global polyalkylene glycol market was worth US$7.49 billion and by 2023, the market is projected to be worth US$16.96 billion. Volume-wise, in 2014, the global PAG market was estimated at 6,522.8 kilo tons.
The global polyalkylene glycol (PAG) market is driven by factors such as the rising demand for PU foam, functional fluids, and lubricants. Moreover, the perpetual growth in sales of pharmaceutical products and personal care goods is expected to open up growth avenues for ingredients such as PAG. Nevertheless, factors such as the volatility of crude oil prices and the high price of PAG-based functional fluids and lubricants will suppress the market's growth.

The global polyalkylene glycol (PAG) market is broadly segmented by product, application, and geography. By product, the global polyalkylene glycol market is divided into polypropylene glycol (PPG), polyethylene glycol (PEG), and others such as copolymers and higher adducts. PPG and PEG are the major product types of polyalkylene glycol. PPG is projected to emerge as the dominant product type during the forecasting horizon due to its growing demand in the lubricant sector.
Application-wise, the global polyalkylene glycol (PAG) market is segmented into polyurethane (PU) foam, lubricants, functional fluids, personal care, surface active agents, pharmaceutical, and others. The sector of PU foam dominated the global polyalkylene glycol market in 2014 in terms of volume. On the other hand, the lubricants application sector emerged as a key market for PAG and accounted for over 15% of the market in terms of volume in 2014. Nevertheless, it is the personal care application sector that is projected to show the fastest growth in the coming years.
