It is flammable, has the molecular formula C2H6 and comprises of two carbon atoms. Ethane has a wide range of application. It is used in ethylene production for making plastics, detergents, anti-freeze, as a ripening agent for foods, as a refrigerant and a substance to produce welding gas especially as a key ingredient in mustard gas.

Ethane is chiefly used in the production of ethylene which is then used to make polyethylene that is utilized for making food packaging namely squeeze bottles, cling wraps and sandwich bags), non-food packaging such as moisture barrier in construction and liners for ponds and tanks and stretch film and shrink along with automotive parts as well as other household products. Not only this, it is used for vinyl acetate monomer, ethanol, polystyrene, polyester, PVC, ethylene glycol and others. Ethane is used for producing acetic acid too which itself is utilized in the form of a chemical intermediate for forming chemicals namely ester, terephthalic acid, acetic anhydride, vinyl acetate monomer and other forms of chemical solvents.

There are several factors that is propelling the growth of the ethane market. These factors according to MRFR (Market Research Future) report include demand for ethane across different industrial verticals and increasing need of ethane as a refrigerant due to its eco-friendly properties that helps to reduce global warming and ozone depletion. On the contrary, factors such as fluctuating prices of crude oil and strict environmental regulations especially in developed countries may hinder the growth of the ethane market.

Market Segmentation

Market Research Future report offers a comprehensive segmental analysis of the ethane market on the basis of application and end-use industry.

Based on application, it is segmented into refrigerant, acetic acid synthesis, ethylene synthesis and others. Of these, ethylene synthesis will have the maximum share in the market over the predicted years owing to widespread utilization of ethylene in different end-use industries. It is also anticipated to expand at the fastest CAGR.
