Glycol ethers form family of solvents based on alkyl ethers of propylene glycol or ethylene glycol. E-series glycol ether is made from ethylene oxide as a raw material and hence called as e-series. On attachment of repetitive units of ethylene oxide group’s e-series can have mono, di, and tri-ethylene glycol ethers. E-series glycol ether are characterised by their strong compatibility with water and also with various organic solvents. The other important properties of e-series glycol ether includes low volatility, solvent strength, and ability to act as coupling agents promoting the miscibility of organic and aqueous phases. E-series glycol ether find wide applications in cleaning, pharmaceutical, personal care and cosmetic, act as plasticizer in plastic resins and solvents in paints etc. The high molecular weight e-series glycol ether are commonly used as fluids in hydraulic brakes. The global e-series glycol ether market is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period with increasing use of e-series glycol ether in various industries.
Global E-series Glycol Ether Market: Drivers and Restraints:
The global e-series glycol ether market is primarily driven by the increasing demand from various applications. Cleaning, paint and cosmetic are some of the most important applications which drives the global e-series glycol ether market. Also, global e-series glycol ether market is driven by the increasing use of e-series glycol ether as medicine extraction in pharma industries. Some of the regulations for e-series glycol ether are REACH, Predicted No Effect Concentrations (PNEC) and Derived No Effect Levels (DNEL), Classification, Labelling and Packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP).
