Propylene oxide is a volatile and colorless, organic compound, which can be miscible in organic solvents and water. Processes such as chlorohydrin, cumene hydroperoxide, epoxidation with hydrogen peroxide, ethylbenzene hydroperoxide with tert-butyl alcohol co-product, or ethylbenzene hydroperoxide with styrene co-product are used in the production of propylene oxide. Furthermore, the product is primary adopted as a chemical intermediate to induce & accelerate the stable reaction in the manufacturing of polyether resins and propylene glycol. The high product consumption can be seen in the automotive, construction, food and beverages, intermediates, and functional fluids applications.
The rising demand for propylene oxide from the construction and food industries will fuel market growth. The propylene oxide is used as a construction chemical in the grouts, paints, waterproofing materials, coatings, and adhesives. Moreover, the product is also used in the manufacturing of propylene glycol, which is further utilized in various food products such as dressings, drink mixes, cake mix, dried soups, popcorn, soft drinks, fast foods, bread, and dairy products. The increasing demand for packaged food coupled with the rapidly growing construction industry will surge the product demand. Hence, this is anticipated to show sustainable propylene oxide market growth during the forecast period.
However, the availability of substitute products including alkylene carbonate is restricting the adoption of propylene oxide in various applications. Hence, this is anticipated to hamper the market growth.
