The global ethylene carbonate market size reached US$ 311.3 Million in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 434.1 Million by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5% during 2023-2028.

Ethylene carbonate (C3H4O3) is a polar solvent with low toxicity and high boiling point and solubility for polymers. It is a clear crystalline solid, which is odorless and only slightly soluble in water. It forms a soluble salt by bonding with rust and particles found in oil and gas wells and complexing the metal ions. In addition, it decomposes the carbonates and viscosity-enhancing compounds due to its attribute of acidification. It is widely used in lithium battery electrolytes, strip solvents, fiber processing agents, capacitor electrolytes, lubricants, soil hardening agents, organic solvents, raw material for organic synthesis, and medical products.

Ethylene Carbonate Market Trends:
The growing utilization of lithium-ion batteries in electric vehicles (EVs) due to their power-to-weight ratio, energy efficiency, high-temperature performance, and low self-discharge advantage represents one of the key factors driving the market. Moreover, C3H4O3 is used as a plasticizer and precursor for manufacturing polymers and organic synthesis. This, along with the rising employment of C3H4O3 as a release agent and detergent around the world, is propelling the growth of the market. In addition, there is an increase in the usage of C3H4O3 in the gas washing process to remove contaminants from product gas. This, coupled with the growing application of C3H4O3 as an intermediate in the synthesis of polycarbonate diol worldwide, is positively influencing the market. Besides this, the escalating demand for C3H4O3 in photochromic treatments to enhance the visual acuity of individuals is offering lucrative growth opportunities to industry investors. Additionally, key market players of lithium-ion batteries are extensively investing in research and development (R&D) activities to develop a new cooling system, which is projected to increase overall sales of C3H4O3.
