Glycerin, also referred to as glycerol or 1,2,3-propanetriol, is a polyhydric alcohol and part of triglycerides, mainly found in vegetable and animal oil. Glycerin is derived either from natural resources or from petroleum feedstock. It is a byproduct generated during the manufacturing of biodiesel and soap. Some of the prominent applications of Glycerin include usage for moisture retention or as humectant in personal care. It is also used in medical formulations and industrial chemical manufacturing.

Supply-Demand Scenario:

The global glycerin market was valued at USD 2.34 Billion in 2016 and is estimated to reach USD 3.47 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.8% for the forecasted period. In volume terms, global consumption of glycerin was 3,894 KT in 2016. Increasing use of glycerin in personal care products is expected to lead to an increase in global glycerin consumption over the forecast period.

Growth By Region:

The Asia-Pacific region is the largest market for glycerin, in terms of value, followed by Europe and North America. The growth can be attributed to the rapidly increasing consumption in countries such as China, India, and South Korea for personal care products. A steady demand since the past few years for hair care and oral care products along with rising consumer interest in color cosmetics is leading to the growth of glycerin production in the Asia-Pacific region.

Drivers Vs. Constraints:

An increasing production of biodiesel and its regulations, rising efforts towards the development of novel applications and a growing preference and demand for bio-renewable chemicals are factors that are likely to boost the growth of the global glycerin market over the forecast period. However, a fluctuation in supply as well as availability of substitutes is likely to hinder growth of the global glycerin market during the period.

Industry Structure and Updates:

Many consolidations are witnessed during the last 5 years in the glycerin production industry. This is largely due to the efforts among companies towards meeting the increasing demand for glycerin and gaining access to high-growth markets of Asia Pacific as well as to strengthen their foothold in regions such as Europe and North America.
