Diethyl Ether Market Regional Outlook
North America dominates the global diethyl ether market both in terms of production and consumption, and the trend is anticipated to continue in the foreseeable future. Ether starting fluid is sold and used in countries with cold climates, as it can help with cold starting an engine at sub-zero temperatures. Moreover, increasing industrial investment and massive population in the emerging economies of India and China leading to growth in several end-user industries, such as energy, paint and transportation among others has been driving the demand for diethyl ether in East Asia and South Asia. South Asia is anticipated to be the fastest growing region in the global diethyl ether market.
North American and European regions have been recovering from the economic downturn, which has led to the sluggish growth of the automobile industry in these regions; therefore, the diethyl ether market is expected to grow at a steady pace in the near future. Countries like Brazil are expected to see significant growth trends in the automotive industry. This is likely to boost the market for plastics, which, in turn, will propel the diethyl ether market during the forecast period.
Europe’s increasing demand for gasoline will be anticipated to drive demand for diethyl ether in North America and Europe. Moreover, various countries, including Indonesia, South Korea, are increasing their diethyl ether production capacities primarily to lower dependence on imports. Several developing economies in South America and Africa are anticipated to offer huge growth opportunities for diethyl ether market growth.
