The market for Ethylene Oxide (EO) and Ethylene Glycol (EG) is being driven by strong demand in the downstream applications and end-user markets especially in Polyester fibers and PET resin which are extensively used in textile and food and beverage industries. Ethylene glycol based polyester fibres are broadly used in the textile industry. Fabrics made from polyester are extensively used in apparel and home furnishings, bed sheets, blankets, upholstered furniture and computer mouse mats. Industrial polyester fibres are used widely in tyre reinforcements, safety belts, coated fabrics, and fabrics for conveyer belts etc. PET resin is widely employed to make bottles and containers that are used in the food and beverage industry. The major hurdle which is currently inhibiting the growth of the market is high volatility in the prices of crude oil. With the crude oil prices moving upwards the price trends are expected to reflect in the ethylene prices which is an important raw material for ethylene oxide and ethylene glycol production. The crude oil price volatility is expected to reflect in the prices of EO and EG. The uptrend in EO and EG prices is likely to prompt EO and EG producers to increase their prices and pass the burden of rising feedstock costs to the buyers that could hamper the market.
