Market Scenario

Market Research Future (MRFR) proclaims that the global ethylene dichloride market is predicted to garner a striking CAGR during the forecast period (2017-2023). Continuous growth in the automotive sector is highly favoring the market growth across the globe. Also termed as 1, 2-dichloroethane, ethylene dichloride is a chlorinated hydrocarbon, which is a clear, colorless liquid with a sweet odor. This hydrocarbon is manufactured by reacting ethylene with chlorine, which is cracked to produce vinyl chloride monomer. It is also used in the production of industrial and consumer products and finds application in several end-use industries like automotive, construction, medical, packaging, furniture, and others.

Market Potential and Pitfalls

The global ethylene dichloride market is anticipated to expand at breakneck speed owing to the rapid urbanization, continuous growth in the automotive sector, rising per capita disposable income. The surging use of flexible and rigid packaging has increased the demand for ethylene dichloride worldwide. The increasing consumer awareness associated with the maintenance of vehicles is likely to create a demand for ethylene dichloride during the appraisal period. There is a noticeable growth in the demand for lightweight commercial and passenger vehicles which have fueled the demand for automotive production, thereby raising the ethylene dichloride-based products. Moreover, the growing investment in the construction activities like hospitals, schools, colleges, and stadium, coupled with the expanding furniture sector especially in the emerging nations is predicted to trigger the demand for ethylene dichloride in the coming years.

The increased application of PVC resins is likely to shape the ethylene dichloride market globally. PVC or polyvinyl chloride is considered the third-largest plastic both in terms of consumption and production and find application in flooring, pipes & fittings, films and sheet, wires and cable, and others. Ethylene dichloride is used as a chief raw material in the production of PVC which is estimated to trigger its demand worldwide.

On the contrary, the volatile emissions and toxic nature of ethylene dichloride are estimated to vitiate the market growth across the globe. The toxic nature causes drunkenness and nausea in human beings which creates a negative impact on the environment. Moreover, the government has implemented strict mandates on the consumption of ethylene dichloride which is likely to dampen its growth in the long run.
