Market Insights

The monoethylene glycol market was estimated at USD 28.56 billion in 2022 and is likely to grow at a CAGR of 5.99% during 2023-2028 to reach USD 40.8 billion in 2028.

What is monoethylene glycol?

Monoethylene glycol is basically an organic compound that is produced by the reaction of ethylene oxide and water and can also be utilized as a corrosion inhibitor in antifreeze and in the manufacturing of polyester fibers.


The Covid-19 pandemic impacted almost every industry with lockdowns and restrictions being the major factor behind the downfall. Most refineries went non-operational following restrictions and regulations. Owing to the reduction in production and end-product demand, the monoethylene glycol market witnessed a decline in demand.
