The key reasons for the growth of Glycol in China are majorly attributed to the usage of polyester fibres for coated fabrics, seat belts, conveyor belt fabrics in the automotive industry. The demand for ethylene glycol is escalating due to its usage in polyester fibres. The country has the presence of large and small key players thus, there is stiff competition between the players in the market. The demand for Glycol is projected to mushroom from the downstream applications and textile industries. Fabrics made using polyester are widely used in home furnishings, apparel, blankets, computer mouse pads, bed sheets, and upholstered furniture.
According to MarkNtel Advisors’ research report “China Glycol Market Analysis, 2020”, the China Glycol Market is anticipated to grow at a substantial CAGR during 2020-25. A snowballing demand for PET resin from the food and beverage industry for the manufacturing of water bottles and food containers is positively fuelling the growth of the ethylene glycol market in China. Moreover, the spurring demand for antifreeze agents is also accentuating the growth in the market. Ethylene glycol is used as antifreeze in the automotive industry. Furthermore, ethylene glycol is used in medical sterilization and as a heat transfer agent and coolant in geothermal pumps and air conditioning systems.
