Due to rising demand for lubricants and lithium-ion batteries in the automotive and technology industries, as well as increased government restrictions on fuel economy, the global Ethylene Carbonate Market has seen considerable expansion. The Global Ethylene Carbonate Market study offers a comprehensive analysis of the industry. The research includes a detailed analysis of key segments, trends, drivers, constraints, the competitive landscape, and other important market variables.

Definition of a Market

The natural or organic compound ethylene carbonate (EC) has the formula (CH2O)2CO. Ethylene carbonate is a fruity-smelling translucent to yellowish solid. The interaction between ethylene oxide and carbon dioxide produces ethylene carbonate. Ethylene carbonate is used in the electrolyte solution of lithium batteries and as a reactant in the manufacture of polycarbonate diol because it is an exceptionally polar solvent that dissolves a large amount of electrolyte. To reduce the viscosity and melting point of such electrolytes, additional substances such as diethyl carbonate, ethyl methyl carbonate, dimethyl carbonate, and methyl acetate can be added.
