MEG
MEG

Global demand for MEG is estimated to be 22 million tonnes with a capacity of 28 million tonnes. Based on demand for polyester and PET, demand for MEG continues to remain healthy and is likely to reach 29 million tonnes by 2016.

Globally MEG demand has seen phenomenal growth over the last five decades. Middle East has the advantage of cheap feedstock and is a dominant player in the MEG Industry with large built up capacities. China has emerged as a main consumption hub having built up large downstream polyester capacities.

Mono ethylene glycol, commonly referred to as ethylene glycol, or MEG, is the largest produced glycol by volume, amongst all glycols. Almost all the consuming sectors of MEG have witnessed growth rates of more than 10% in the past 5 years, indicating a strong demand of MEG in the present market scenario. Polyethylene Terephthalate or PET, is the largest consumer of MEG, accounting for more than half the domestic production of the country and expected to achieve growth rates close to 20% in the next 5 years. The textile and pesticide industries are other major consumers of MEG in the country and they are expected to witness modest growth in the coming years. The western region of the country is the largest hub of MEG consumption, accounting for more than half of total demand for the material. Other regions of the country share approximate similar MEG requirements, which are however, expected to increase in the future.

Production of MEG over the world had been hit hard by the global depression of 2008-2010, restricting domestic capacity additions. As the industry started its path to recovery and the production achieved normalcy, capacity additions in India were initiated to satiate the growing demand for MEG in the high growth PET and packaging industry. Moreover, the upsurge in the polyester fabric industry mandated an incessant supply of MEG which further fueled its demand.

Reliance Industries Limited, Indian Oil Corporation Limited and India Glycols Limited are the chief MEG manufacturers in the domestic market. Though production has seen a modest growth, it is not enough to meet domestic demand. India's limited domestic production mandates users and distributors to procure MEG through imports. Imports are at their highest during peak summer months due to its primary application in the manufacture of PET which is used in the packaging of soft drinks and other beverages that show maximum sale in summer.
