2022-2023 China PG & DMC Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


In 2022, the propylene glycol (PG) market in China witnesses great volatilities affected by both internal and external factors. The domestic dimethyl carbonate (DMC) supply pattern is undergoing substantial changes. With new capacity with advanced technologies being released, the DMC price has dropped significantly. PG and DMC are co-products of PO transesterification units, and their market trends have moved in tandem but have also seen divergence. The co-movement between PG and DMC market trends may gradually weaken as more DMC will be produced via non-PO transesterification processes.

Prices of PG and DMC turn volatile in 2022 and both drop year on year. However, the profitability of PO transesterification units remains decent because of the decline of feedstock PO prices. New capacity expansions are expected in both PG and DMC industries in 2023, and the PO capacity is also expanding. In terms of demand, the PG demand increment is expected to be small, and players may try to balance their sales pressure via the exports. The demand support for DMC will mainly come from the electrolyte solvent industry. The SCI 2022-2023 PG and DMC Market Annual Report will analyze upstream and downstream supply-demand dynamics and decipher new changes in the market.

SCI combines the contents of PG and DMC in one report to analyze the co-movement. Besides, SCI uses supply data collected with a complete sample coverage and combs demand data comprehensively. The annual report is the result of SCI’s in-depth and meticulous research on China’s PG & DMC market as well as its upstream and downstream sectors, providing a strong stand for subscribers to make decisions.
