DUBLIN, Sept. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Glycerin – Global Market Trajectory & Analytics report has been added Offer.

The global glycerin market is projected to reach $3.4 billion by 2026

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

Growth in the global market is being driven by increasing demand from end-use industries and a strong contribution from developing regions, particularly Asia-Pacific.

The increasing production of biodiesel has resulted in an abundant supply of raw glycerin that can be used directly in animal feed, as a dust suppressant, coal freeze protection and grain storage. The oversupply and the resulting drop in prices have made it possible to use glycerin for energy production.

In addition, the glut of crude glycerin has led to the availability of technical grade glycerin, which is used in industrial applications such as the manufacture of propylene glycol and epichlorohydrin. The glycerin market is expected to benefit significantly from increasing demand for refined glycerin from new applications and epichlorohydrin production, mainly in Europe and Asia.

The market will also benefit from the growing trend towards organic, natural and eco-friendly products and raw materials. Demand for vegetable glycerine from soya, coconut or palm trees is likely to benefit in particular.

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 impact of the pandemic and the economic crisis it caused, growth in the Saponification segment is adjusted to a revised annual growth rate of 5% for the next 7 years.

This segment currently accounts for a 31.3% share of the global glycerin market. The raw glycerine produced during the process accounts for 10% of the world’s total biodiesel production. The growing share of biodiesel is attributed to remarkable advances in the transesterification process, which uses fatty acid or biodiesel to produce glycerol. The process is extremely inexpensive for the large-scale production of glycerol.
