Ethylene Oxide (EO)

Price assessments and market commentary

Keep track of production data and supply disruptions

Global Ethylene Oxide (EO) market growth is driven by increasing demand for consumer products and increased use of PET. However, it is generally constrained by uncertain demand in the automotive industry.

The textile industry is another major driver of demand. Ethylene Oxide derivatives are used for shrink-proofing, static prevention, mothproofing and to treat synthetic and natural fibres. The USA is the world’s second-largest exporter of fibre, textiles, and clothing, after China and India.
