Global Epichlorohydrin (ECH) Market, By Process (Allyl Chloride Route, Allyl Alcohol Route, Glycerin

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1958664


Market Dynamics:

Increasing Demand For Bio-Based Epichlorohydrin is expected to drive the growth of the Global Epichlorohydrin (ECH) Market during the forecast period. This has resulted in some of the key developments by companies operating in the market to consolidate their market positions and look for further niche opportunities.

Segment Analysis:

ECH is a chemical containing an epoxy and chlorine component. It has characteristics such as gentle water solubility, chiral nature, and miscibility in polar solvents resulting in the production of epoxy resins and glues, plastics, glycerols, and elastomers. It is manufactured using the glycerin and propylene raw materials. Using propylene as feedstock, allyl chloride and allyl alcohol routes are used to produce ECH.

In the other method, ECH reacts with bisphenol ether to the acquisition of resins and polymers used in end-user industries such as pharmaceutical and personal care. ECH operates in end-user industries such as paints and coatings, fabrics, electrical & electronics, agrochemicals, etc.

Increasing consumption of epoxy resins is expected to drive the worldwide ECH market during the forecast period in end-user sectors such as paints & coating. However, legislative bodies are expected to be concerned about the damaging impacts of ECH on health and the environment to hinder the development of the worldwide ECH industry. Lucrative development in ECH based on glycerin is likely to be an opportunity in the days ahead for the ECH industry.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • The rapid growth of end use industry

  • Growing Consumption Of Epoxy Resins In End-User Industries

  • Increasing Demand For Bio-Based Epichlorohydrin
