Global Ethylene Oxide Market Analysis 2019

Global Ethylene Oxide Market Analysis 2019

The Global Ethylene Oxide Market is accounted for $43.02 million in 2017 and is expected to reach $77.77 million by 2026 growing at a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period. Ethylene oxide, called oxirane by IUPAC, is an organic compound with the formula C2H4O. It is cyclic ether and the simplest epoxide: a three-membered ring consisting of one oxygen atom and two carbon atoms. Ethylene oxide is a colorless and flammable gas with a faintly sweet odor. Because it is a strained ring, ethylene oxide easily participates in a number of addition reactions that result in ring-opening. Growing usage of PET in the food and beverage industry and increasing demand for household and personal care products in the developing nations are some of the factors fuelling the market growth. However harmful effects of ethylene oxide on humans and the stringent environmental regulations regarding the usage of ethylene oxide are restricting the market growth.

Based on End User, Agrochemicals segment is projected to be the fastest-growing during the forecast period. Ethylene Oxide is used as a fumigant for spices, seasonings, and foodstuffs and as an agricultural fungicide. When used directly in the gaseous form or in nonexplosive gaseous mixtures with nitrogen or carbon dioxide, ethylene oxide can act as a disinfectant, fumigant, sterilizing agent, and insecticide. It is a man-made chemical used as an intermediate in organic synthesis for ethylene glycol, polyglycols, glycol ethers, esters, ethanolamines, acrylonitrile, plastics, and surface-active agents.

By Geography, North America region is expected to grow by the end of the forecast period. The market is highly driven by penetration of several ethylene oxide producers in the region during past few years. Further, inadequate availability of cotton is augmenting the market demand in forecast period.
