Global Ethylene Oxide Category - Procurement Market Intelligence Report

About Ethylene Oxide Market

Ethylene oxide (EO) or oxirane is a colorless and inflammable organic compound. It is in a gaseous state at room temperature (77°F) and a mobile liquid at 32°F. Also, it has the sweet odor of ether and is soluble in a variety of solvents such as water, ethanol, and diethyl ether. The production process for EO involves the oxidation of ethylene in the presence of a silver catalyst at a temperature of 476°F to 530°F and a pressure of 220 psi to 294 psi. Moreover, EO is used as a finishing agent, intermediate, functional fluid, and surface-active agent. It is also used in the manufacturing of products such as solvents, antifreeze, textiles, detergents, adhesives, polyurethane foam, and pharmaceuticals.

An increase in demand for derivatives such as ethylene glycol, ethylamine, and ethoxylate is driving the global EO market. The growth of the construction and automotive industries is also leading to greater demand for ethylene glycol-based products.
