Published By: Brisk Insights | Published On: Jul 20, 2016

Key Findings


The global propylene oxide market has been expected to grow at the CAGR of 3.6% during 2016-2022. Growing use of polyurethane across the broad spectrum of automotive, construction, furniture, packaging and footwear industries are majorly driving the global propylene oxide market. Propylene oxide is a small-volume differentiated petrochemical which is used to manufacture polyether polyols for urethanes, propylene glycols, glycol ethers, and polyalkylene glycols for a variety of chemical intermediates and functional fluids. It is produced by the dehydrochlorination of propylene chlorohydrin or by oxidation of propylene to propylene oxide by an organic hydro peroxide. Most common product manufactured from propylene oxide is polyether polyols followed by propylene glycol. Polyether polyols has the largest share of propylene oxide usage, up to 65% and propylene glycol has around 15% usage.


Propylene oxide is manufactured using chlorohydrin process, hydro peroxide process, peroxide cumene process, propylene oxide tert-butanol process and propylene oxide styrene monomer process. Chlorohydrin process is the most common process for producing propylene oxide and will remain as such during the forecasted period. Nearly 37% propylene oxide is manufactured in this way. The second most popular method is propylene oxide styrene monomer process followed by propylene oxide tert-butanol process.


Polyether polyols is used to manufacture polyurethane which have a wide use across a broad spectrum of industries. It is used in sealants, thermal industries and flooring materials. Propylene oxide is used as a chemical intermediate to manufacture adhesives, elastomers, coatings, flexible and rigid foams, carpets, interlay, vehicle seats and injection moldings. These are then further used in boat hulls, gasoline tanks and tub-shower combinations. Water scavengers, defoamers, latex paints, lubricants, oil-field chemicals, wetting agents and greases are also manufactured using propylene oxide. Increasing demand for the above products is driving the propylene oxide market. There is a rise in infrastructural investment in the countries like China, Malaysia, Singapore, Brazil, India, Qatar, UAE and Saudi Arabia and this one of the biggest driver for propylene oxide market. It is predicted that automotive sectors in China, India, US and Mexico will report good growth during the forecasted period. Increasing production of propylene glycols, polyalkylene glycols, and propylene glycol ethers will require more propylene oxide and this will lead to more demand for propylene oxide. Propylene oxide is used for production of biological samples for electron microscopy and it has been forecasted that in the coming years there will be a rising demand for these. Factors acting as restraint for the market growth are the toxic and extremely flammable nature of propylene oxide. One of the biggest market restraint is fluctuating raw material price.


Market Segment Insights


The application market for propylene oxide market is segmented as follows: automotive, industrial, furniture, footwear, construction, healthcare, medical, food, electronics, packaging and personal care industries. Around 66% of manufactured polyurethane is used for making rigid and flexible foams globally. It is the highest use of propylene oxide worldwide.


Regional Insights


Globally, Europe has the largest market of propylene oxide followed by North America. Unstable economic conditions and strict environmental guidelines will affect the European market and however the market growth in this region will be lethargic during the forecasted period. North American market has been predicted to report healthy growth during the forecasted period owing to rise in the growth of the automotive and electronics sector. Improvement in the construction sector, high disposable income and high living standards will be another driving factor for the North American market during the forecasted period.


Asia Pacific region is going to grow at a higher pace during the forecast year due to continuous rising demand from China and India. China and India both have the high availability of raw material like propylene in their region and that has been expected to boost the market. Setting up of propylene oxide manufacturing will boost the market growth in China.


Economic conditions in these countries are getting better and consumers have more money to spend. As a result various industries like furniture, automotive, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and pet foods has been expected to grow. An increase in the personal care, automotive, and food & beverage sectors in the APAC region has been expected to lead the demand over the forecasted period.
