Ethylene oxide, also called as oxirane, is an organic compound with molecular formula C2H4O. It is a colorless and flammable gas with a mildly sweet odor. Ethylene oxide is industrially produced by oxidation of ethylene in the presence of silver catalyst. Presently, ethylene oxide is widely used in chemical processing and healthcare industries in developing regions.

The growth of the global ethylene oxide market is driven by increase in demand from personal healthcare and automotive industries. In addition, factors such as upsurge in demand for PET bottles from packaging industries and rapid increase in demand for automotive parts such as seats & belts are expected to drive the growth of global ethylene oxide market. However, high toxicity of ethylene oxide and rise in health issues are the key factors expected to hamper the growth of global market. On the contrary, increase in R&D activities to make ethylene oxide consumer-friendly is expected to offer future growth opportunities to the market.

Key segmentation of the global ethylene oxide market is done on the basis of application, end use, and region. By application, the market is segregated into glycol ethers, acrylonitrile, ethoxylates, ethanolamines, and others. Depending on end-use, it is classified into chemical processing, healthcare, food & beverages, automotive, and others. Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
