Global Polyalkylene Glycols Market is valued approximately USD 2.62 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 11.7 % over the forecast period 2021-2027.
Polyalkylene glycols are a variety of propylene oxide and ethylene oxide derivatives built off different initiators, that offers a range of solubility and adhesive properties. This is adopted as a replacement for petroleum lubricant with additional features such as it has lower vapor pressure, higher viscosity index, lower pour point, along with high solvency in contrast to petroleum lubricants. Additionally, increasing demand for industrial lubricants and polyurethane foam, as well as product launches are surging the market demand. For instance, in march 2020, ANI Pharmaceuticals, Inc., declared the introduction of Polyethylene Glycol 3350, 17g/Packet (PEG-3350). As per the IQVIA, the annual market revenue is approximately $21 million. Therefore, these factors are bolstering the polyalkylene glycols across the globe. However, the price of PAGs is comparatively higher than conventional mineral oils which impedes the growth of the market over the forecast period of 2021-2027. Also, the rising adoption of the PAGs across numerous sectors such as pharmaceutical, personal care, etc. is likely to increase the market growth during the forecast period.
