top epichlorohydrin manufacturing companies


Solvay S.A, LOTTE Fine Chemical Co, Ltd, Olin Corporation, Aditya Birla Chemicals, Sumitomo Chemical Co. Ltd, and Nama Chemicals Company, among others, are significant players in the global epichlorohydrin market.


The global epichlorohydrin market is expected to grow at a CAGR of about 3.5% in the forecast period of 2022-2027. As per the analysis by Expert Market Research, the market is expected to be driven by the growing demand for epichlorohydrin in various end-use sectors.


As epichlorohydrin is used in various sectors, including automotive, textiles, pharmaceuticals, and electronics, the expansion of such sectors, particularly in developing countries, is driving the demand for epichlorohydrin. The market is expected to grow over the forecast period due to the increased petroleum refining and exploration operations, as epichlorohydrin is produced from petroleum-based chemicals. Furthermore, various manufacturers are increasingly utilising bio-based feedstocks such as glycerol to synthesise epichlorohydrin owing to the growing sustainability concerns, which is anticipated to provide further impetus to the growth of the market.


The extensive utilisation of epichlorohydrin in the manufacturing of epoxy resin, which is used in various end-use sectors, is aiding the market growth. Moreover, various leading companies are deploying environmentally friendly methods to manufacture epichlorohydrin using glycerin or propylene processes and renewable resources. Such methods also reduce carbon emissions as well as require low energy consumption, which is likely to invigorate the market growth.


In June 2022, Meghmani Finechem commissioned its 50,000-tonne-per-year epichlorohydrin plant at Dahej, Gujarat. The project, with an estimated cost of INR 2.75 billion, aims to meet the growing domestic demand for epichlorohydrin while reducing its import activities in India. Such expansion activities are expected to favour the market growth of epichlorohydrin in the forecast period.
