Monoethylene Glycol (MEG) Market

Monoethylene glycol is an odorless, colorless and barely viscous liquid which is miscible in aldehydes, water, alcohol and various other organic compounds but not miscible in vegetable oils, rubber and cellulose acetate. On the basis of application, Monoethylene glycol is segmented into polyester Terephthalate, polyester resin, coolants & antifreeze and others. Polyester resins accounted for major share of global Monoethylene glycol market in 2016 and is expected to retain its position in the near future. It is the largest synthetic fibre which is used in the textile industry. Polyester is known be a substitute for growing demand of fibers in the market. Monoethylene glycol is used as a raw material in the production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resins which are further used in the manufacture of polyester fabrics and bottles. Growing demand for PET bottles and containers from various end-user industries worldwide is driving the demand for polyethylene terephthalate in the market. This makes PET the fastest growing application segment of global monoethylene glycol market. Monoethylene glycol is used also used as a coolant & antifreeze agent for industrial applications.
