Polyester Fibers and Resins Propel the Rapidly Growing Monoethylene Glycol Market Amidst Raw Material Price Volatility

The monoethylene glycol (MEG) market is a rapidly growing industry that provides a versatile chemical with applications in various industries, including textiles, packaging, and automotive. MEG is a clear, colorless, and odorless liquid that is commonly used as a raw material for the production of polyester fibers, resins, and films. The market for MEG is expected to continue to grow in the coming years due to the increasing demand for polyester fibers and resins in the textile and packaging industries. MEG is also used as a coolant in automotive engines, which is expected to further drive the demand for MEG.

The nation’s economy is said to have a significant impact on the use of monoethylene glycol. Even though the economies of Asia are growing cyclically, there will still be a high demand for monoethylene glycol for uses like polyester fibers and PET. Over the past few years, the monoethylene glycol market has been driven by expansion in the packaging industry. This has a significant impact on the market for monoethylene glycol as well as the demand for it, along with urbanization, shifting consumer lifestyles, rising disposable income, and other factors.
