The global glycerin market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.88% to reach US$4.436 billion by 2027, from US$2.608 billion in 2020.



The usage of glycerin is rising in the different end-user industries such as pharmaceuticals food and beverages among others because it has a lot of different properties that make it suitable for use in the end-user industries.

Moreover, its use in the pharmaceutical industry as an excipient and as a humectant in the cosmetics industry is pushing the market growth over the forecast period. However, the availability of substitutes in the market poses a threat to the market's growth over the forecast period. There are some end-users, that are still making use of chemicals such as propylene and ethylene glycol for applications, that include antifreeze and de-icing, thus, impacting the market growth.
