Glycol ethers are a collection of alkyl ethers-based solvents of propylene glycol or ethylene glycol, typically used in cleaners and paints. It is a liquid that comprises both an ether and alcohol within its make-up and is mainly used to dissolve other substances. Rapidly increasing construction activities are expected to augment the growth of the glycol ethers market. Growing product usage in personal care, automotive, cleaners, and paints & coatings due to its excellent chemical and physical properties proliferate the market expansion. Also, an upsurge in water-based coating demand will spur the demand for glycol as it can be used as a coalescing agent in these coatings. This, in turn, propels the product demand from printing inks and personal care industries. Additionally, the waterborne coating market has witnessed considerable growth in the past few years due to strict regulatory policies favoring the use of the environment-friendly coating in the architectural and industrial sectors.

Glycol ether is widely used in personal care products and cosmetics in the formulation of skin & hair products, shampoos, personal cleanliness products, and bath products. The global cosmetics business is likely to surpass $450 million by 2025, with gains at over 4.5%. The rise in per-capita disposable income, changes in lifestyle, and increasing demand for skincare products due to varying climatic conditions are key factors expected to boost the industry growth. The rapid rise in the personal care sector due to increasing consumer consciousness regarding health hygiene is expected to accelerate the glycol ether market share. The stringent REACH regulations concerning the toxic nature of ethylene oxide-based derivatives is a constraining effect on the industry. This resulted in the product manufacturers focusing on propylene oxide as a starting material. Volatility in raw materials and utilities adversely constrain the profitability of manufacturers and subsequently act as a negative stimulus on the global pricing scenario.
Increasing economic growth of glycol ethers
The rising economic growth of the glycol ethers market is expected to augment printing inks demand owing to its widespread usage in publishing print products such as books, newspapers, journals, technical printed material, and magazines. Global printing inks segment demand is projected to reach $25 billion up to 2025 on account of growing demand from corrugated cardboard and flexible packaging applications. Glycol ether is widely utilized in printing inks manufacturing owing to its quick-drying nature and compatibility with high-speed roll to roll yardage printing.
The rise in consumer consciousness
Growth in consumer consciousness and changing sociological perceptions towards environment sustainability is likely to boost glycol ether market demand in the automotive sector. In 2018, China accounted for about 30% of global vehicle sales. Rising demand for nontoxic coatings & shifting consumer perceptions towards improved technological changes and vehicle colour coupled with growing automobile business will stimulate the paints and coating business demand.They are widely used in protection against external environmental factors such as UV radiation and acid rain which will further stimulate market growth.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The major applications of glycol ether are in paints & coatings, cleaners, automotive sectors. The coronavirus pandemic has severely hit the automotive sector with declining sales of new automobiles and reduced maintenance activities, thus affecting the demand for glycol ether. Also, the paints & coatings industry has witnessed a brunt due to limited raw material availability and the shutdown of production facilities, further affecting the glycol ether market growth.
