Monoethylene Glycol (MEG) is an odorless and colorless liquid is produced from ethylene in the process manufacturing ethylene oxide. With the production yield of monoethylene glycol (MEG) being well over 80% from the ethylene oxide process, it is widely produced for commercial processes. Along with monoethylene glycol (MEG), the process also produces diethylene, triethylene and tetraethylene glycol as by – products. Being commercially considered to be the most important glycol available in the market, monoethylene glycol (MEG) is largely consumed in the polyesters fibers and films. Its durability and hydrophobic features make it one of the highly appealed product for manufacturing PET films & polyester fibers.

Monoethylene Glycol (MEG) Market: Dynamics

The consumption of monoethylene glycol (MEG) is noted to remain highly dependent on the country’s economy. While the cyclic economy is observed in the countries in Asia, for applications such as polyester fibers and PET, the demand for monoethylene glycol (MEG) is anticipated to remain prominent in Asia. Moreover, the upsurge witnessed in the packaging industry is in turn driving the monoethylene glycol (MEG) market over the historic period. This fuelled with the urbanizations, shifting consumer lifestyle, rising disposable income, among others also have a significant impact on the monoethylene glycol (MEG) market.

One of the noteworthy barrier in the growth of monoethylene glycol (MEG) market is the fluctuations in the raw material prices and the availability of crude oil and other feedstock.
