Polytetramethylene Ether Glycol (PTMEG) market is expected to register a high CAGR during the forecast period, 2018 - 2023. The market is driven by the increasing demand for thermoplastic polyurethane, along with the growing demand for Apparels and Clothing in the emerging economies. In 2017, Asia-Pacific region dominated the global market.

Growing Demand for Apparels and Clothing in Emerging Economies

The textile industry grew at a healthy rate in emerging economies like ASEAN, Canada, etc., despite the economic slowdown at the global level, and is expected to continue the upward trend over the forecast period. This is majorly due to low switching costs, and the significant role of the industry in terms of trade, employment, investment, and revenue. The global apparel industry is currently valued at USD 3 trillion and accounts for around 2% of the global GDP.

Indonesia is among the top 10 textile producing nations in the world. The country is also the 12th largest textile and apparel exporters with major exporting destinations include the United States, EU and Middle-East. Vietnam is the 3rd largest garment exporters with major exporting destinations include the United States, EU, Japan and South Korea. The country is also an apparel exporter with 17% exports in 2017. The top export destination for apparel is China and Bangladesh. Thus, the rapid growth of apparels market in developing economies is expected to majorly drive the market for PTMEG during the forecast period.

Automotive Industry - A Huge Potential

The demand for light-weight automotive vehicles is becoming increasingly important in recent times. As a result, environmentally-friendly automotive technologies should be incorporated into the cars to ensure high energy savings along with low CO2 emission. This has led to the rapid development of light-weight technologies for a large variety of automotive applications, in particular, to achieve novel structural adhesives that can replace welding and riveting processes. These positive effects are the result of increased homogeneity in the distribution of stress over the entire automotive surface and better absorption of stress loads in comparison to welding and riveting processes, and also contributing to the enhancement of mechanical and production characteristics of light-weight car bodies. All the aforementioned factors, in turn, expected to increase the demand for the polytetramethylene ether glycol during the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market

In 2017, the Asia-Pacific region dominated the global market share. Owing to the increasing demand from the Automotive industry coupled with the demand for textiles in countries such as China, India, and Japan, the demand for polytetramethylene ether glycol is increasing in the region. China is a major market for textiles, automotive, and paints & coatings, globally. Companies present in the country, multinationals as well as locals, are expanding their production capacities and investing in new projects to decrease their dependence on imports, thereby fueling the regional energy security and autonomy. China’s 13th Five-year Plan outlined urbanization, which focuses on investments into airports, railways, and water infrastructure. This is definitely going to drive the need for coatings.

China is one of the world’s largest automotive and auto component manufacturing bases. The government of China views its automotive industry, including the auto parts sector, as one of the country’s key industries running the national economy. Other than being a manufacturing hub, China continues to be the world’s largest vehicle market, with sales of over 28 million units in 2017. Hybrid composite materials, with their high weatherability and safety features, are expected to have an increased demand from the automotive industry. Due to these factors, the demand for polytetramethylene ether glycol is likely to increase in the region during the forecast period.

The major players include – BASF SE, Mitsubishi Chemical, INVISTA, Korea PTG, Chang Chun Group, and HYOSUNG, among others.
