Ethylene Carbonate Market

Market Leader - Ethylene Carbonate Market

The global ethylene carbonate market size is expected to grow from USD 290 million in 2021 to USD 389 million by 2026, at a CAGR of 6.1%, during the forecast period. The market is driven mainly by the application expansion achieved through the improved quality of ethylene carbonate & lithium batteries electrolytes, lubricants, coatings, and plasticizers in various end-use industries such as automotive, industrial, electronics, medical and others, globally.

The increase in demand for high-quality, durable products is the key factor driving the use of ethylene carbonate in end-use industries. The rising demand for lithium-ion batteries and lubricants in the emerging Asia Pacific region, high growth in end-use industries, and a shift in consumer preference toward high-quality products are propelling the growth of the ethylene carbonate market globally. However, factors such as the global economic slowdown and volatile raw material prices could affect market growth.
