Ethylene Carbonate Market Challenges - New Industry Overview and Forecasts To 2027

The Global Ethylene Carbonate Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 476 million by 2027 at a CAGR of around 5.4%.

Ethylene Carbonate is a highly polar solvent having a high boiling point, low toxic, no odour, highly soluble for polymers. As it is highly polar solvent its permittivity is also high thus it is widely used in electrolyte solutions in lithium-ion batteries. It is produced by the reaction between ethylene oxide and carbon dioxide with a variety of cations and complexes acting as catalysts.

Ethylene Carbonate Market: Drivers & Challenges

Market Driver:

Increasing Shift Towards the Use of Electric Vehicles

The ethylene carbonate is extensive uses as an electrolyte in lithium-ion batteries. The increasing shift towards the use of electric vehicles is owing to the benefits such as cost-effectiveness, easy maintenance, reduced fuel costs, as well as fuel-efficiency. The demand is supported by the stringent regulations set by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the EU’s environmental standards to curb CO2 emission, which is expected to fuel the demand for Li-Ion batteries. Electric car deployment has been growing rapidly over the past ten years, with the global stock of electric passenger cars passing 5 million in 2018, an increase of 63% from the previous year. Around 45% of electric cars on the road in 2018 were in China – a total of 2.3 million – compared to 39% in 2017. In comparison, Europe accounted for 24% of the global fleet, and the United States 22%. Thus, the increasing shift towards the use of electric vehicles is expected to boost the demand for Li-Ion batteries which is likely to drive the global ethylene carbonate market.

Market Restraint:

Fluctuating Cost of the Raw Materials

Ethylene carbonate is produced by the reaction between ethylene oxide and carbon dioxide. It can also be produced from the reaction of urea and ethylene glycol using zinc oxide as a catalyst at a temperature high temperature and pressure. Volatility in the prices of these materials is a major factor likely to hamper the market growth during the assessment period. The price fluctuations are attributed to the mining and extraction of the raw materials, which are dependent on geological and geopolitical factors. Additionally, materials such as ethylene oxide, urea, and ethylene glycol are petroleum-based products, which add up the cost on account of the supply-demand gap of crude oil.
