Global Diethylene Glycol Market Expected to Reach 3.44 Million Metric Tons by 2026, Driven by the Extensive Applications of the Product

According to a new report by EMR titled, 'Global Diethylene Glycol Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026', the global market for diethylene glycol reached a volume of 2.6 million metric tons in 2020. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% in the forecast period of 2021-2026 to reach a volume of 3.44 million metric tons by 2026.

The diethylene glycol industry is driven by the rising demand for the derivatives of the main product, ethylene glycol.

The diethylene glycol is used as a raw material in the production of lubricants, wallpaper strippers, brake fluid, artificial fog solutions, and heating or cooking fuel. The product is further used as a coolant when diluted.

Reliance Industries Limited and Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: CTA-B) are some of the leading players in the market.
