Glyoxal Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Application (Crosslinking, Intermediate, Others), By End-Use Industry (Textile, Paper, Derivatives, Oil & gas, Cosmetics & Personal care, Leather, Others) and Regional Forecast, 2023-2030

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102928 | Status : Ongoing



Glyoxal (OCHCHO) is a crystalline solid, which is insoluble in water. It is derived from ethylene glycol using oxidation process and is also known as dialdehyde. Glyoxal is a natural compound that belongs to the aldehyde group. At normal temperatures, it is a transparent yellow color liquid, after evaporation glyoxal gets converted into a green colored gas. Glyoxal is an intermediate product that is mainly used as cross-linking agent in numerous industries such as oil & gas, leather, cosmetics, paper & packaging, and textile.

The rising use of glyoxal in various end-use industries such as oil & gas and textiles is anticipated to propel the growth for the glyoxal market. In the textile industry, glyoxal is used as finishing agents, which provide shrink-proof, wash-resistance-free, and wrinkle-resistance properties to nylon and cotton. Whereas, as a crosslinking agent, glyoxal helps in the oil extraction process of the immiscible phase. It forms the crosslinking amongst polymers of fracturing fluid, thereby allowing to generate fractures in oil sediments and increase the fluid’s viscosity, which further results in releasing the crude oil. Hence, growth in these applications will lead to the demand for glyoxal.

Key Market Driver -

Increasing demand for glyoxal from textile and oil & gas industries to drive the market.

Key Market Restraint -

Fluctuations in the prices of raw materials to restrain the market growth.

However, fluctuations in the prices of raw materials due to their availablity mainly ethylene glycol prices, is anticipated to hinder the market growth. Ethylene glycol is produced using steam cracking method in the petrochemical industry.
