Covid-19 Scenario:

  • Production activities of diethylene glycol have been hampered completely or partially due to lockdown measures implemented in various countries. Moreover, lack of sufficient workforce to work in facilities hindered the production volumes despite partial continuation.
  • The demand for diethylene glycol from various end-use industries such as plastic, paints & coatings, cement, and others decreased considerably due to stoppage of day-to-day operations in these industries during the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • The demand is expected to rise during the post-lockdown as governments lift lockdown restrictions and these industries begin their operations with full capacities.

The report offers detailed segmentation of the global diethylene glycol market based on application, end-use industry, and region.

Based on application, the plasticizer segment contributed to the highest market share in 2020, holding more than one-fourth of the total share, and is expected to maintain its dominance in terms of revenue during the forecast period. However, the chemical intermediate segment is projected to portray the highest CAGR of 6.4% from 2021 to 2030.
