The demand for conventional propylene glycol in the region is strong due to high usage in the growing end-use applications such as unsaturated polyester resin and antifreeze & functional fluids. However, the North America region is also experiencing a shift from conventional propylene glycol to bio-based propylene glycol consumption. China is the second-largest consumer of propylene glycol globally.
