The global ethylene carbonate market size is expected to grow from USD 473 million in 2022 to USD 901 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 13.7%, during the forecast period. The market is driven mainly by the demand expansion of ethylene carbonate in automotive industry. It is employed in a plethora of applications, including in automotive plastics manufacturing, in surface coatings, and in Li-ion battery electrolytes. With the sales of automotive revitalizing after Covid-19 pandemic, the demand for ethylene carbonate is projected to grow considerably during the forecast period.
Rising demand for chemical resistant and durable parts from industrial sector has provided a push to the demand for ethylene carbonate as a plasticizer. Furthermore, the rising demand for polycarbonates and lubricants in the emerging Asia Pacific region, owing to a shift in consumer preference toward high-quality products is propelling the growth of the ethylene carbonate market. However, factors such as political instability between China and Taiwan and volatile raw material prices could affect market growth.
