The polypropylene glycol market size will witness an appreciable gain on the back of soaring demand from the cosmetic and personal care sectors. The polymer of propylene glycol is highly sought-after as an anti-foaming, anti-static or pigment dispersing agent. With rising penetration of biodegradable, environmentally friendly and cost-effective products, the liquid will continue to gain prominence across the end-use sectors.

Fortune Business Insights™ has delved into these inputs in an upcoming research report, titled, “Polypropylene Glycol Market, 2022-2029.”

COVID-19 Impact-

Widespread Cosmetic Store Closures Dented Growth Prospect

A dip in in-store shopping did not augur well for the business outlook following the decline in consumers’ inclination to spend on beauty products. Prominently, brands switched their manufacturing from cosmetics to hand sanitizers. Meanwhile, a surge in online sales could offset the plunge in in-store sales. Expanding application of wetting agents and surfactants for leather finishing could provide impetus to the industry growth. Stakeholders are expected to invest in paintballs manufacturing, and laxatives manufacturing in the ensuing period.

Drivers and Restraints-

Strong Demand from Leather Industry to Impel Industry Growth

Lately, polypropylene glycol has gained significant traction in the leather industry, with the colorless liquid being sought as a dispersant, surfactant and wetting agent.

Polypropylene glycol market share will grow at a notable rate on account of the rising footprint of liquid detergents. The material stabilizes enzymes and has witnessed an increased demand as a coupling agent. That said, possible health implications could impede the industry growth during the assessment period.
