Propoxylates Market Trends and Segments 2018-2028


Propoxylates are the types of monomers majorly used in the manufacturing of surfactants. Various types of propoxylates are consumed in the coating applications. Various types of propoxylates which are majorly used, in the industrial applications, includes glycerine-propoxylated polyols, propoxylated glycerin, glycerol propoxylate triglycidyl ether, bisphenol A propoxylate and pentaerythritol propoxylate amongst others. The applications of propoxylates includes coatings, sealants, adhesives, building and construction components, elastomers, urethane foams insulation, and appliances. Propoxylates also find its applications as foaming agents, detergents, and wetting agents. Some of the propoxylates are also used as a sealants and adhesives in specialty applications. Bisphenol A propoxylates are majorly used as in glass fiber reinforcement and corrosion protection. These propoxylates are also used as toner resins, in electro-deposition coatings, and epoxy coatings. Due to their good surface properties, propoxylates are widely used as additive in surfactants and detergents. Growing demand for coating industry is pushing the surfactants demand, which is expected to drive the propoxylates market in the coming years.

Market Dynamics of Propoxylates Market: Rising demand for surfactants from coating, cosmetics, and other industries is driving the propoxylates market: Propoxylates market has witnessed a boost in demand in last few years, due to increasing demand for propoxylates from coatings and cosmetic industry. Large number of propoxylates are used as surfactants during manufacturing the specialty coatings, foam, detergents, and cosmetics. Improved properties of end use products with the use of propoxylates, is pushing its demand from these applications. Increasing end use industries including cosmetics, chemical, and automotive amongst others, is driving the demand for propoxylates, globally. Rise in use of surface property enhancers in paints and coating applications is also pushing the demand for these chemicals.

Stringent regulations in the developed countries: Regulations on manufacturing, transportation, sales, use, and disposal of propoxylates, may act as a restraining factor for the propoxylates market growth. Developed countries in North America and Europe are enforcing the stringent regulations on various chemicals use and disposal.
