Monoethylene Glycol (MEG) Market for Polyester Fiber, Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), Antifreeze, and Other Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2023

Report Description

Monoethylene glycol is a colorless, odorless, and barely viscous liquid that is miscible in water, aldehydes, alcohols, and many other organic compounds. It is an organic compound used primarily as a raw material in the manufacture of polyethylene terephthalate resins (PET), which are employed in bottles and polyester fibers in the fabric industry. It cannot dissolve heavy petroleum and vegetable oils, cellulose acetate, and rubber. Monoethylene glycol is low volatile and hygroscopic compared to glycerol at room temperature. Monoethylene glycol in its pure form is a colorless liquid with sweet taste. Ethylene glycol production is carried out from ethylene through the intermediate ethylene oxide.
