Glycerin, also referred to as glycerol or 1,2,3-propanetriol, is a polyhydric alcohol and part of triglycerides mainly found in vegetable and animal oil. Glycerin is derived either from natural resources or from petroleum feedstock. It is a byproduct generated during the manufacturing of biodiesel and soap. Some of the prominent applications of Glycerin include its use for moisture retention or as humectant in personal care. It is also used in medical formulations and industrial chemical manufacturing. In volume terms, global consumption of glycerin is expected to stand at 3,859 KT by the end of 2016. The global glycerin market is expected to register a volume CAGR of 4.0% over the forecast period (2016–2024). Increasing use of glycerin in personal care products is expected to lead to an increase in global glycerin consumption over the forecast period.
