Global Glycerin Market Analysis Report 2022: Market to Reach USD 3.4 Billion by 2026 – Transesterification Leads Global Glycerin Market

Dublin, Sept. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Glycerin – Global Market Trajectory & Analytics” report has been added to from offer.

Global glycerin market to reach $3.4 billion by 2026

The global glycerin market, estimated to be worth US$2.6 billion in 2022, is expected to reach a revised size of US$3.4 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 6.1% over the analysis period.

The growth of the global market is driven by growing demand from end-use industries and strong contribution from developing regions, especially Asia-Pacific.

The growing production of biodiesel has resulted in a plentiful supply of crude glycerin which can be used directly in animal feed, as a dust suppressant, freeze protection for coal and grain storage. The oversupply and the resulting drop in prices allowed the use of glycerin for energy production.

Additionally, the oversupply of crude glycerin has led to the availability of technical grade glycerin which finds use in industrial applications such as the production of propylene glycol and epichlorohydrin. The glycerin market is expected to benefit significantly from the growing demand for refined glycerin from new applications and the production of epichlorohydrin, primarily in Europe and Asia.

The market is also expected to benefit from the growing trend towards organic, natural and eco-friendly products and raw materials. Demand for vegetable glycerin made from soy, coconut or palm is particularly likely to benefit.

Transesterification, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.4% to reach US$1.7 billion by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and the induced economic crisis, Saponification segment growth is readjusted at a revised CAGR of 5% for the next 7-year period.

This segment currently accounts for a 31.3% share of the global glycerin market. The crude glycerin produced during the process represents 10% of the overall biodiesel production in the world. The growing share of biodiesel is attributed to notable advances in the transesterification process which uses fatty acids or biodiesel to produce glycerine. The process is very cost effective for the large scale production of glycerine.

The US market is estimated at $415.6 million in 2022, while China is expected to reach $808.6 million by 2026

The glycerin market in the United States is estimated to be worth US$415.6 million in 2022. The country currently accounts for a 16.2% share of the global market. China, the second largest economy in the world, is expected to reach an estimated market size of US$808.6 million in 2026 growing at a CAGR of 7.8% over the analysis period.

Other noteworthy geographic markets include Japan and Canada, each forecasting growth of 4.3% and 5.5% respectively over the analysis period. In Europe, Germany is expected to grow at a CAGR of approximately 4.5%, while the rest of the European market (as defined in the study) will reach US$874.1 million by the end of the year. analysis period.

Asia-Pacific represents a major regional market for refined glycerine in the world. Driven by the increasing use of glycerin in consumer goods, pharmaceuticals and other industries, the region is poised for sustained growth.

The market is also benefiting from the growing use of glycerin in the personal care sector in South Korea, China and India. The North American market is benefiting from the growing demand for glycerin from the pharmaceutical and personal care industries.

Fat Separation Segment to Reach $756.7 Million by 2026

In the global fat separation segment, the United States, Canada, Japan, China and Europe will drive the estimated CAGR of 6.7% for this segment. These regional markets representing a combined market size of US$363.6 million will reach a projected size of US$571.4 million by the end of the analysis period.

China will remain among the fastest growing markets in this group of regional markets. Led by countries such as Australia, India, and South Korea, the Asia-Pacific market is expected to reach US$141.8 million by 2026, while Latin America will expand to a CAGR of 8% over the analysis period.
