Propylene Oxide Market to Rear Excessive Growth During 2016 - 2022

Propylene Oxide Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2016 - 2022


New York City, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/26/2017 -- The organic compound propylene oxide is a colorless and volatile liquid at normal temperature and pressure. This compound is highly flammable and reactive in nature. The compound, however, is very useful as a chemical intermediate. The propylene oxide is used for fumigation of medical instruments and in food industries. It is a major commodity chemical used for a production of polyurethane. Commercially, propylene oxide is used in production of polyols, glycol ethers and Butanediol among the others. It is also used in starch industries, lubricant industries, adhesive and sealant industries, cosmetic industries etc. Moreover, it also finds application in production of herbicides, demulsifiers, surfactants and defoamers.

The petrochemical product propylene oxide is mainly used to derive propylene glycol. This propylene glycol is primarily used as a raw-material for the production of polyurethane as well as used as intermediate in various other industries. The increasing demand for polyurethane from the end use industries is expected to drive the global market of polyurethane and in turn result in an increasing demand for propylene oxide. Hence, the growth in polyurethane market is expected to drive the growth of global propylene oxide market. Glycol ethers are used extensively in cleaning agents, in cosmetics, paints, gums etc., the growth in demand for glycol ethers is in turn expected to drive the growth of propylene oxide market during the forecast period. On the flip side, hazardous nature of propylene glycol that is it being a mild CNS depressant, eye and respiratory tract irritant and a probable carcinogenic according to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) can be a major challenge to the growth of the global propylene oxide market over the forecast period.
