Global And Chinese Propylene Glycol Mono Methyl Ether Industry Report, 2011-2021
Propylene glycol ethers are formed from the base catalyzed reaction of propylene oxide with alcohols like methanol, ethanol, propanol, butanol or phenol. Subsequent reaction with additional propylene oxide leads to the corresponding di-, tri- and higher glycol ethers. The Propylene glycol ethers category consists of seven members: propylene glycol n-butyl ether, or PnB (CAS No. 5131-66-8); dipropylene glycol n-butyl ether, or DPnB (CAS No. 29911-28-2); dipropylene glycol methyl ether acetate, or DPMA (CAS No. 88917-22-0); and tripropylene glycol methyl ether, or TPM (CAS No. 25498-49-1 and 20324-33-8); propylene glycol methyl ether, or PM (CAS No. 107-98-2); propylene glycol methyl ether acetate, or PMA (CAS No. 108-65-6); and dipropylene glycol methyl ether, or DPM (CAS No. 34590-94-8).
The global propylene glycol mono methyl ether market size is estimated to grow from USD 1867 million in 2015 to USD 1938 million by 2021, at an estimated CAGR of 0.63% between 2015 and 2021. With regards to this, key players of propylene glycol mono methyl ether industry are expected to find potential opportunities in this market.
