Ethylene oxide is a colorless chemical which is flammable at room temperature. It is widely used in the polymer, packaging and antifreeze industries. Its applications are limited to the industrial segment as it is highly dangerous for household consumption. Other uses of ethylene oxide are the production of thickeners, solvents, detergents, plastics and various organic chemicals such as ethylene glycol, polyglycol, ethers, ethanol, amines etc. Pure ethylene oxide is widely used as a disinfectant in hospitals and medical equipment industry to replace steam in the sterilization process. Increased expenditure in the healthcare sector across different regions, strengthened process innovation in recent years, higher consumption expenditure and the perpetually rising global gross domestic product have strengthened demand for ethylene oxide, thus propelling market growth. In 2021, the ethylene oxide market is expected to reach US$XX million, increasing from US$XX million in 2015 at a CAGR of XX%.
