Global Glycerine Market to Reach US$7.21 Billion by 2030


NEWARK, New Jersey, March 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — According to the report published by The Brainy Insights, the glycerin market should go from $2.60 billion in 2020 for $7.21 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 6.9% over the forecast period 2021-2030.

Glycerin is the component of triglycerides typically found in vegetable oil, animal fat, and crude oil. Glycerine is an organic alcohol completely miscible with water. It is also miscible in various other substances and compounds. Glycerin is also known as propane-1,2,3-triol, glycerol, trihydroxypropane, 1,2,3-propanotriol, glycer-itol, or glycidyl alcohol. It is a sweet, clear liquid with a sweet taste. It contains three hydrophilic hydroxyl groups, which are responsible for being hygroscopic. Instead of being crystallized, glycerin tends to cool at low temperatures. Aqueous solutions of glycerin are frost resistant and are used as antifreeze in cooling systems. Glycerin does not oxidize at room temperature but can be easily oxidized by other oxidizing agents. Moreover, glycerol has low pressure and low volatility which are related to the hygroscopic property of the compound.
