As per the report published by the experts the global Ethylene Oxide Market estimated to grow at a higher CAGR by the completion of the prediction period. It is an inflammable and vaporous alkylating agent. It is normally utilized in surgery, hospital, dentistry for sterilizing the medicinal tools. Ethylene oxide is likewise utilized for the manufacturing of a number of end user merchandises along with non-user chemical. These end user merchandises consist of plastics, thickeners and detergents, however non-user chemical takes account of organic chemicals similar to ethylene glycol. Ethylene glycol is mostly utilized for the production of polyester fiber and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resin.


Ethylene oxide is similarly, recognized as oxirane. This is an organic composite. It is a colorless and inflammable gas. It is extensively utilized through a number of industries for the manufacturing of medicines, antifreeze, detergents, textiles, adhesives and solvents. It is also used as fumigant and sterile material in spices, cosmetic products, in hospitals for sterilization of operating tools, etc. Increasing demand for polyester fibers and PET resins is estimated to motivate the global ethylene oxide (EO) market during the period of forecast.

Ethylene oxide is likewise utilized in the manufacturing of textile and food & beverages.   Polyester fibers are broadly utilized in conveyor belt fabrics, coated fabrics, seat belts etc. while, PET resins are broadly utilized for the production of containers and bottles in the business of food & beverages. Demand is increasing for the PET bottles, in this way demand for ethylene oxide is also growing.

Furthermore, antifreeze is utilized to decrease the freezing point of water centered fluid in the automobiles. Growing demand for antifreeze in automobile businesses, boosts the market for ethylene oxide.


The factor that is restricting the development of the global ethylene oxide industry is the variations in the prices of crude oil. This is very significant raw material for its manufacturing.


The global ethylene oxide market can be classified by Application, Type, End User and Region. By Application it can be classified as Ethoxylates, Ethylene Glycol Ethers, Ethylene Glycols, Ethanol Amines, Polyethylene Glycols, Polyethylene, Ethanol amines, Glycol Ethers and others. By Type, it can be classified as Dow Oxidation, SD Oxidation, Shell Oxidation and Others. By End User, it can be classified as Detergents, Personal Care, Food & Beverages, Automotive, Medicines, Textile, and Agrochemicals.

Regional Lookout:

By Region the global ethylene oxide (EO) industry can be classified as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Central & South America, and Middle East & Africa. The Asia pacific market leads the global market by means of capacity along with the income. Growing industrial development is likely to power the development of the market, during period of forecast. The Asia Pacific was tracked by North America. Apart from being the biggest, the market of Asia Pacific is likewise projected to develop by an important percentage during the period of forecast. The markets of Europe and North America are saturated and have been increasing by a comparatively lethargic speed since previous two to three years. The major companies are setting up their manufacturing facilities, in North African areas and concentrating on the development of this composite due to the growing demand for ethylene oxide everywhere the world. Majority of the most important companies are from China and Middle East in the Asia Pacific region.


Some of the important companies for ethylene oxide market are: Indorama Ventures, Reliance, Al-Jubail Petrochemical Company, Yansab, Sharq, BASF AG, Sinopec Corp., Shell, Formosa Plastic Group, Dow Chemical Company, Akzonobel, China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation, Clariant AG, Honam Petrochemical Corporation, Saudi Basics Industries Corporation, Royal Dutch Shell, and Exxon Mobil.

Additional notable companies are: Sasol, Eastman, Nippon Shokubai, CNPC, Indian Oil, PTT Global Chemical, Ineos Oxide, Kazanorgsintez, India Glycol Limited, Sibur, Oriental Union Chemical, LyondellBasell Industries, and Huntsman Corporation.
