Market Overview

Duration: Short-term – 2-year price forecast and market outlook

As we navigate through 2023 and beyond, the market dynamics of ethylene oxide and its derivatives, such as ethylene glycols, are influenced by various factors, including fluctuating feedstock prices, environmental regulations, and varying demand levels across different applications. The versatility of ethylene glycols, especially in antifreeze, polyester fibers, and PET resin production, has kept the demand robust, but susceptible to the economic health of these industries. Particularly, the growth in recyclable PET and bio-based polyester fibers is injecting new prospects and challenges in the market. Geopolitical tensions and trade policies continue to shape the global supply chain landscape, making the trade dynamics a crucial area of focus. Moreover, the impact of the new capacities, a trend expected to solidify in the coming year, maintaining the market oversupplied, will keep clouding the global business and the economic health of ethylene oxide and glycols.
