Propylene Oxide Market Research Report, Upcoming Trends, Demand, Regional Analysis and Forecast 2025

According to the new research report by IMARC Group, the global propylene oxide market grew at a CAGR of around 6% during 2014-2019. Looking forward, the market is expected to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.

Propylene oxide (C3H6O), also called epoxypropane, is a synthetic cyclic ether generally manufactured by the indirect oxidation of propylene or the dehydrochlorination of propylene chlorohydrin. It is a clear, volatile, flammable liquid which is non-corrosive to metals, and soluble in water and alcohol. As a result, it is primarily used in the automotive, electronics, textile and furnishing, and as a raw material in manufacturing various chemicals.

Market Trends

The market growth of propylene oxide is primarily driven by their growing applications in various end-use industries. The polyether polyols and propylene glycol ethers derived from propylene oxide, are often used in the textile, automotive, construction, and aerospace sectors. It is also used as a fumigant to contain bacterial contamination and insect infestations in soil and packaged food products. In line with this, small quantities of propylene oxide help in sterilizing medical equipment. Additionally, it is also employed as a transitional fluid for tissue processing in transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Apart from this, improving living standards, the expanding food and beverage (F&B) sector, and the growing health consumer consciousness are propelling the demand for packaged food products, which is driving the market for propylene oxide.
