The global ethylene oxide & ethylene glycol market is driven by growing demand from PET bottle manufacturers and textiles industry and growing global demand for antifreeze in auto industry. Globally major use of ethylene oxide is for the production of ethylene glycol (76%) and ethoxylates (14%). And globally about 45% of the ethylene glycol is used for the production of PET bottles.

Over the last decade demand of ethylene oxide and ethylene glycol has increased considerably due to growing demand for PET bottles for storing water and carbonated drinks mainly due to increase in the disposable income of people globally. Ethylene oxide is also used to produce ethoxylates which is further used to manufacture surfactants (detergents) so growing demand for house hold detergents is also helping the ethylene oxide market to grow. The market for PET was estimated to be worth USD 8,410.2 million in 2011 and it is expected to reach USD 13,042.9 million in 2018.
