  • Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation
  • Shanxi Sanwei Group Co. Ltd

Key Market Trends

Textile Industry is likely to Dominate the Market

  • The textile industry grew at a healthy rate in emerging economies like ASEAN, Canada, etc., in the recent past and is expected to further grow over the forecast period.
  • This is majorly due to low switching costs, and the significant role of the industry in terms of trade, employment, investment, and revenue.
  • Increasing demand for enhanced quality stretch fabric across various textile applications is driving the demand for Polytetramethylene Ether Glycol (PTMEG).
  • Hence, owing to the above-mentioned factors, the textile industry is likely to dominate the market studied during the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market

  • Currently, the Asia-Pacific region accounts for the highest market share. Owing to the increasing demand from the textile industry in countries such as China, India, and Japan, the demand for polytetramethylene ether glycol is increasing in the region.
  • China is a major market for textiles, automotive, and paints & coatings, globally. Companies present in the country, multinationals as well as locals, are expanding their production capacities and investing in new projects to decrease their dependence on imports, thereby fueling the regional energy security and autonomy.
  • Additionally, there has been an increasing demand for PTMEG in the ASEAN countries for usage in industries like textiles, paints & coatings, etc.
  • Hence, owing to the above-mentioned factors, Asia-pacific is likely to dominate the market studied during the forecast period.
