Sep 2021. Epichlorohydrin is an intermediate chemical used primarily in the production of epoxy resins (about 90% of the total global market); therefore, consumption depends mainly on epoxy resin production. Mainland China continued to substantially expand its epichlorohydrin capacity in recent years, now accounting for about 55% of global nameplate capacity. The traditional petrochemical process for making epichlorohydrin consumes propylene and chlorine, but there has been increased commercialization of biorenewable, glycerin-based epichlorohydrin capacity, with improved operating rates in recent years due to the greater supplies of glycerin at competitive pricing and the drive for more ecologically sound processes. Global consumption of epichlorohydrin is expected to grow at an average annual rate of about 3.5% during 2021–26, driven primarily by the production of epoxy resin. The fastest-growing markets will continue to be in Asia, particularly mainland China and India.
