Glycerol Diacetate Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2018 - 2028
Global Glycerol Diacetate Market: Snapshot
Glycerol is also commercially synthesized from propylene. Glycerol can also be obtained based on a proprietary fermentation processing. Glycerol diacetate is obtained during the manufacturing process of biodiesel in the form of a by-product. The production of glycerol diacetate is achieved through a chemical reaction between acetic acid with 1,2- and 1,3 diacetates of glycerol along with mono- and tri-esters. The chemical is an odorless, colorless and oily liquid which is hygroscopic in nature. Glycerol diacetate is also miscible and soluble in water. The key application of glycerol diacetate is as a carrier- a substance used to dissolve, dilute or disperse a food additive or nutrient without altering its function; typically to improve handling/application. The chemical finds application in a number of applications, such as an additive, a plasticizer, a paint coating, a fixative agent in manufacturing automotive components, and as a solvent for resin, cellulose derivatives and camphor. Because of its hygroscopic nature, the chemical is also utilized as a moisturizing agent.
While packaging glycerol diacetate, it is critical to ensure no direct contact with air or any other impurities. Due to this reason, the chemical is typically stores in secure metallic containers. Additionally, these containers need to be stored away from heat and direct sunlight, in a cool and dry place, to avoid exposure to elements.
The chemical finds application in a multitude of industries such as pharmaceutical, food and beverage, automotive sector, and construction, all of which are currently witnessing swift and vast amounts of growth. The chemical is thus part of several key industries, and expected to be remain popular over the coming years, and beyond. The soaring growth of these industries, leading to enhanced demand for the product are expected to boost the prospects of the global glycerol diacetate market.
Global Glycerol Diacetate Market: Overview
In the process of manufacturing biodiesel, glycerol is obtained as a by-product. And glycerol diacetate is manufactured through the reaction of 1,2- and 1,3 diacetates of glycerol and acetic acid with mono- and tri-esters. Glycerol diacetate is a colorless, odorless, hygroscopic oily liquid that is soluble in water and miscible with ethanol. It is typically packed in containers made of metal to prevent air and other impurities from getting into direct contact with it. It also needs to be stored in a dry and cool place as exposure to heat may spoil it.
