Analyst Viewpoint

“Growing paints & coatings, cleaners, printing inks, and electronics industry primarily drives the usage of glycol ether worldwide

In the next few years, the construction industry is expected to witness a very high growth rate, especially in emerging regions such as Asia Pacific, Middle East, Latin America, Africa, and Eastern Europe. Rapid developments in urban areas, renovations of aging structures, and multiple projects of smart cities are the main reasons for the growth of the construction industry. The swift growth of the construction industry is likely to bolster the growth of the paints and coatings industry, which in turn is expected to propel the expansion of the global glycol ether market. The global electronics industry is expected to grow at a relatively higher rate especially in Asia Pacific and Africa. Also, the demand for cleaners and printing inks is anticipated to grow at a relatively high rate. The significant increase in these sectors is predicted to boost the demand for glycol ether in the global market over the forecast period.” -- Analyst (Chemicals and Nanomaterials), Persistence Market Research
