Lithium battery electrolytes to dominate the global ethylene carbonate market during the forecast period

The ethylene carbonate industry has been segmented based on application into lubricants, lithium battery electrolytes, plasticizers, surface coatings, and others. The lithium battery electrolytes segment is projected to hold the largest share by 2027. The growth in this segment is attributed to the increasing sales of electric vehicles across the globe. According to International Energy Agency, the global sales of electric vehicles have doubled in 2021 as compared to 2020. A similar growth trend is expected to continue during the forecast period, driving the demand for battery electrolytes, and in turn of ethylene carbonate.


Automotive end-use industry segment to dominate the global ethylene carbonate market during the forecast period

The market has been segmented based on the end-use industry into automotive, industrial, medical, oil & gas, personal care & hygiene, and others. The automotive segment accounted for the largest share of the market in 2021 and is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. This increase is attributed to increase in sales of vehicles, especially EVs. For instance, in Europe, the sales of electric vehicles in 2021 increased by 66% year-on-year, accounting for 2.3 million cars.
