Global Glycerine Market: By Process: Transesterification, Saponification, Fat Splitting; By Source: Vegetable Oils, Biodiesel, Soaps, Synthetic; By Grade; By Application; Regional Analysis; Historical Market and Forecast (2017-2027); Market Dynamics: SWOT Analysis; Value Chain Analysis; Competitive Landscape; Industry Events and Developments

Global Glycerine Market Outlook

The global glycerine market reached a value of about USD 3.15 billion in 2021. The industry is further expected to grow at a CAGR of about 3.20% in the forecast period of 2022-2027 to reach a value of around USD 3.76 billion by 2027.

 

Asia Pacific to be a Significant Regional Market for Glycerine

The Asia Pacific region, including significant regions like India, China, Japan, and South Korea, among others, accounts for the largest market share of glycerine. The growth can be attributed to the rapidly increasing consumption of glycerine in countries such as China, India, and South Korea for personal care products. A steady demand over the past few years for hair care and oral care products, along with rising consumer interest in colour cosmetics, is augmenting the growth of the glycerine industry in the Asia Pacific region. Health and hygiene are being promoted in India through government efforts, such as the Swachh Bharat Mission. As a result of these activities and the increased use of soaps and detergents, the soap production business has grown, increasing the need for glycerine in the country. Furthermore, with the increase in demand for soaps and detergents and sanitisers in the region, the demand for glycerine has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. Increasing product demand from chemical intermediates manufacturers in the region and increasing demand for glycerine as a platform chemical, especially in China, further propels glycerine's overall regional demand.

 

Personal Care and Cosmetics Application to Hold the Largest Market Share

The growing use of the product in the personal care segment as a thickening agent, emulsifier, lubricant, and humectant, will aid the growth of this segment. The additional advantages, like low toxicity and solubility, are also expected to supplement the glycerine market growth. With the change in the demand for glycerine in soaps, handwash, and detergents during the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for glycerine has increased, particularly in the personal care industry. Some global cosmetics manufacturers, such as Johnson & Johnson, Unilever, P&G, and others, are significantly adopting natural glycerol as raw material to meet the growing demands. Hence, all such factors are expected to continue driving the demand for glycerine for its application in personal care and cosmetic products during the forecast period.

 

Market Segmentations

Glycerine is a substance of saponified, hydrolysed, transesterified fats and oils. These are either manufactured from propylene or recovered in a crude state and then refined by distillation or ion exchange. Glycerine can also be made by fermenting carbohydrates or hydrogenolysis them; however, these processes are not currently used for large-scale industrial manufacturing.

Based on process, the market is segmented into:

  • Transesterification
  • Saponification
  • Fat Splitting

The various sources of glycerine are:

  • Vegetable Oils
  • Biodiesel
  • Soaps
  • Synthetic

By grade, the market is divided into:

  • Technical Grade
  • Pharmaceutical Grade

The major applications of the market are:

  • Food and Beverage
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Alkyd Resins
  • Tobacco
  • Personal Care and Cosmetics
  • Automotive
  • Polyether Polyols
  • Others

The regional markets for the glycerine industry can be divided into North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa.

 

Growing Use in Various Applications Augmenting the Market Growth

The rise in the use of glycerine in various industrial applications is expected to propel the market during the forecast period. Glycerine is utilised in diverse industrial applications, such as personal care, pharmaceutical, food, alkyd resins, and automotive. An increase in glycerine in foods and beverages is projected to aid the market growth during the forecast period. With changing lifestyles and eating habits in developing and developed regions, the demand for fast foods or convenience foods is increasing. Thus, this growth in the demand for fast food products around the globe is likely to drive the demand for additives, such as glycerine, for use as sweeteners, solvents, or preservatives.

Another important but indirect use of glycerine in food processing is represented by monoglycerides, the glycerol esters of fatty acids, emulsifiers and stabilisers for several products. With people getting more health-conscious and the increasing ageing population, the demand for pharmaceuticals has been increasing around the globe, which has led to the high consumption of pharmaceutical ingredients and raw materials. Due to the increase in pharmaceutical product production, demand for raw materials like glycerine is predicted to rise over the forecast period. This demand growth is further attributed to growing concerns related to global climate change, stable energy, and fluctuating crude oil prices, which are expected to increase biodiesel demand, subsequently increasing the demand for glycerine during the forecast period.
