Ethylene oxide is a gaseous and flammable alkylating agent. It is commonly used in hospital, dentistry, surgery, for disinfecting and sterilizing medical instrument. Ethylene oxide is also used for producing various consumer goods as well as non-consumer chemical. These consumer goods comprise of thickeners, detergents and plastics whereas non-consumer chemical includes organic chemicals like ethylene glycol. Ethylene glycol is mainly used for manufacturing polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resin and polyester fiber.
The increasing demand for PET bottles from packaging industries is driving the ethylene oxide market. Rising awareness among the consumer regarding healthier and premium beverage brands is increasing the PET bottles demand, which is further growing the market. However, the market growth is hindered by high toxic content of ethylene oxide. In spite of this, rapid industrialization and infrastructure development in economies like China, India, and Thailand and using bio-derived ethylene over petro-based ethylene for production are the opportunities that can boost the market growth.
