Ethylene oxide is a flammable alkylating agent and gaseous in nature. It is mainly used for the disinfection and sterilization of medical devices in hospital, dentistry, surgery. Ethylene oxide is also used for the manufacture of various consumer and non-consumer chemicals. The consumer chemicals consist of thickeners, detergents, plastics, and solvents while organic chemicals such as ethylene glycol are included in non-consumer chemicals. The global market for ethylene oxide is growing with its wide range of applications and desirable properties.

Growing demand from the packaging industries for PET bottles is driving the market for ethylene oxide. Particularly half of the global production of ethylene oxide is used for the production of PET bottles. The shift to packaged food and beverage products in consumer preferences is accelerating the growth of the packaging industry. Increasing consumer awareness of healthier and premium beverage brands is expected to drive the demand for PET bottles, which is expected to increases the market growth over the forecast period. The high toxic content of ethylene oxide is expected to hinder the market growth. Additionally, any exposure or skin contact may cause chemical burns, which restricts its application in several industries such as textiles and healthcare.

Ethylene oxide derivatives are used in household cleaners and personal care products. Ethyleneamines are used for the production of surfactants as building blocks. TEPA improves the soil deposition and soil removal characteristics of certain liquid laundry detergents and improves the ethoxylated soil with an average of 17 moles of ethylene oxides.

Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the ethylene oxide market by the end of 2025.
