Mono Propylene Glycol Market to Reach US$ 5 Bn by 2029; Growth Hurt by Coronavirus, Owing to Tight Credit Lines and Vulnerable Workforce – Future Market Insights

With the rapid spread of the coronavirus contagion, the mono propylene glycol market can potentially be slammed by the pandemic in multiple areas. Issues of liquidity and health risk for the workforce are primary concerns during the crisis period. In addition, the decline in activities of multiple end user verticals, coupled with disruptions to supply chains and operations is hurting demand and productivity in the short term.

“Supplies of mono propylene glycol have largely remained unaffected in Asian markets, despite disruptions in other parts of the world. Higher Chinese imports and moderate weakening of downstream demand have influenced market activity in the region,” says the FMI analyst.

The Projected Impact of Coronavirus

The mono propylene glycol is likely to remain curtailed for the duration of the pandemic, owing to reduced downstream demand. In addition, fears over a new wave of the contagion will slow down recovery. Delays of construction and de-icing project applications will also hurt market growth. On the other hand, demand for food and pharmaceutical grade product will help to partially mitigate the downturn.

Competition Landscape

The mono propylene glycol market comprises players including but not limited to Sadara Chemical Co., Royal Dutch Shell plc, Repsol, Dow Chemical Co., and Huntsman Corp. Market players are increasingly seen seeking production capacity expansions as a way to consolidate market positions in new regions. For instance, Avantium has started the construction of a new production facility for mono propylene glycol in the Netherlands at Chemie Park Delfzijl. Similarly, Sadara Chemical Co. has initiated mono propylene glycol production at a new plant in Saudi Arabia’s Jubail Industrial City. Also, Helsinki based Valchem has initiated a project for the production of bio-based mono propylene glycol in collaboration with Technische Universität Darmstadt, Sekab, and METabolic Explorer.
