Polyalkylene Glycol Market is anticipated to record The polyalkylene glycol market is estimated to value at USD 5 billion at the end of the forecast period

Press Release

Polyalkylene Glycols are formed when one or more alkylene oxides are reacted with an alcohol. Polyalkylene glycol based oils are commonly used in metalworking fluids, quenching fluids, chain oils, food-grade lubricants, gear oils, and as lubricants in HFC type gas compressor and hydraulics equipment. Due to the high oxygen content of polyalkylene glycols, they are unique among synthetic lubricants. They are exceptionally clean as lubricants that allow their use where petroleum products would build sludges and tars. Polyalkylene glycols was one of an essential chemicals for industrial purpose discovered during the World War II. After the development of polyalkylene glycols, the low pour point and high viscosity indices used as an indicative for their application in developing all-weather, heavy duty brake fluids. Polyalkylene glycol lubricants are the only ones that provide water solubility. Polyalkylene glycols are developed by polymerization of epoxides with a starter consisting of an alcohol and smaller amounts of its metal alkoxide, usually sodium or potassium salt. Polyalkylene glycols were first developed for the navy for use in military aircraft. The application of polyalkylene glycol in various end-user industries has increased since which is estimated to propel the market over the forecast period.
