Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wkrc63/polyalkylene) has announced the addition of the “Polyalkylene Glycol Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2015 – 2023” report to their offering.

This report provides a detailed description of the global PAG market based on volume share (kilo tons) and revenue (US$ Mn) for the period from 2014 to 2023. It highlights the factors contributing to the growth of the market, and the restraints impeding the market. Detailed forecast for PAG from 2015 to 2023 has been given separately for providing a better understanding of the market scenario. The PAG market is described with respect to various segments along with the expected opportunities during the next six years.

In terms of geography, the global PAG market has been segmented into the following regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa (MEA). Each region has been further divided into countries which have been found to be the key markets for PAG.

On the basis of products, the study segments the market into: polyethylene glycol (PEG), polypropylene glycol (PPG), and others (including higher adducts and copolymers). The study also segments the PAG market on the basis of applications into: polyurethane (PU) foam, functional fluids, lubricants, personal care, pharmaceutical, surface active agents, and others (including chemical intermediates, CASE, and additives). It provides forecasts and estimates for each product and application segment in terms of revenue and volume during the forecast period from 2015 to 2023 for each region, and inclusive of the countries as well. The study also analyzes market attractiveness for all applications of PAG with the help of the market attractiveness tool.

Increasing demand for PAG in key applications such as PU foam and lubricants is projected to fuel the global PAG market. Swift growth in construction and automotive industries in the emerging countries is anticipated to generate huge demand for PU foams and lubricants, and eventually lead to the growth of the PAG market. The personal care and pharmaceuticals applications are high-value, low-volume markets for PAG and are expected to be prospective markets driving the growth of PAG market in the near future. However, the fluctuating prices of crude oil prices put a downward pressure on the margins of market players. Furthermore, cheaper alternatives of PAG such as conventional oils are available for lubricant applications. The two factors mentioned above are likely to hamper growth of the PAG market during the forecast period.
