Propylene glycol is clear, colorless, slightly syrupy liquid at room temperature. Propylene glycol is a synthetic liquid substance that absorbs water. Propylene glycol is also used to make polyester compounds, and as a base for deicing solutions. Propylene glycol is used by the chemical, food, and pharmaceutical industries as an antifreeze when leakage might lead to contact with food. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified propylene glycol as an additive that is “generally recognized as safe” for use in food. It is used to absorb extra water and maintain moisture in certain medicines, cosmetics, or food products. It is a solvent for food colors and flavors, and in the paint and plastics industries. Propylene glycol is also used to create artificial smoke or fog used in fire-fighting training and in theatrical productions. Propylene glycol is odorless and tasteless. Other names for propylene glycol are 1,2-dihydroxypropane, 1,2-propanediol, methyl glycol, and trimethyl glycol.
The rising demand for Propylene Glycol in the food processing industry and pharmaceuticals Industry are important factors anticipated to encourage the growth of the global Propylene Glycol market in the upcoming period. Furthermore, rising trends towards the application of polypropylene in the automotive industry to decline the weight of the vehicle for increasing fuel efficiency are other factors projected to accelerate the growth of the market in the upcoming years. In addition to this, application of Propylene glycol (PG) to manufacture unsaturated polyester resins (UPRs), which is majorly consumed in in the construction, marine and transportation industries will also propel the growth of Propylene Glycol market. Furthermore, uses of propylene glycol in making unsaturated polyester resins that is reinforced with fiberglass which is used in building panels, bathroom components, fixtures , corrosion-resistant tanks, pipes ,ducts, boats, passenger cars, trucks and recreational vehicles and major appliances will contribute in the growth of Propylene Glycol market in upcoming periods. Apart from this, application of Propylene Glycol as an ingredient in engine coolants, deicing fluids, antifreeze and which are also helpful in making base fluid for aircraft deicing formulations and a coolant in the food industry will boom the market. Uses of propylene glycol broad as a humectant in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, animal food and tobacco industries will drive the market over the forecast period.
