                                              Abstract, Snapshot, Market Analysis & Market Definition: Global Polyglycerol Market

The global polyglycerol market size was valued at USD 1.91 billion in 2017 and is projected to witness a CAGR of 9.0% over the forecast period. This growth is attributed to increasing demand for additives in the food industry and rapid expansion of the application sectors, such as personal care and pharmaceuticals. Polyglycerol and its esters find applications as thickeners, solubilizers, additives, inert ingredients, and spreading agents. The product is used as an antifogging agent as it complies with the FDA regulations and thus, can be used in various products, such as food and beverage and personal care items.
On the other hand, the global market may witness slow growth due to the fluctuating costs of raw material. The supply-demand gap is often a key reason behind this fluctuation. Other than polyglycerol, glycerol is used in many products, such as alkyd resins, polyether polyols, and epichlorohydrin. Thus, high demand for glycerol in various applications is likely to create a supply-demand gap affecting its prices.
However, growth of the personal care industry will have a positive impact on the global market. Factors, such as rising preference for organic products, demand for anti-aging products, increasing disposable income, and expansion of social networks, are driving the personal care sector. The global beauty and personal care market was valued at USD 455.3 billion in 2017 and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period.
Food & beverages is another important end-use sector. The product is widely used in chocolate production. Rising consumption of chocolate is expected to positively affect the market over the forecast period. The global consumption of chocolate in first nine months of 2018 was 3.01 million tons. Pharmaceutical industry is the third major application segment. Increasing investments in the industry by key companies like Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline are expected to further augment the industry growth.
