"Exploring the Versatile Realm of the Global Polyethylene Glycol Market”

Polyethylene glycols (PEGs) can be rendered reactive by replacing the terminal hydroxyl group with various functional groups, including thiols, carboxyl groups, N-hydroxysuccinimide esters, azides, or reactive alkyne groups. This modification initiates crosslink formation, making conjugation chemistry a pivotal aspect of PEG synthesis. Depending on the specific functional group attached, different conditions and methods are employed. Acrylate-terminated PEGs, for instance, exhibit rapid reactivity under mild reaction conditions. These colorless, low-toxicity, non-irritating compounds boast exceptional biocompatibility.

According to Data Bridge Market Research, the Polyethylene Glycol Market is expected to reach USD 8,025.05 million by 2030. The market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 6.4% in the forecast period of 2023 to 2030.

“Production of polyethylene glycol- 400 for eye drop applications”

Polyethylene glycol-400, a transparent and colorless liquid primarily sourced from petroleum, shares similar properties with standard petroleum polyethylene glycol. These eye drops have a shelf life of one year when stored in a cool and well-ventilated area. Polyethylene glycol-400 has a low molecular weight and is less toxic. Its high hydrophilicity makes it valuable in pharmaceutical formulations, particularly as an ophthalmic solution. This solution is commonly employed to alleviate symptoms such as eye burning, discomfort, or dryness.

What restraints the growth of polyethylene glycol market?

“Viscosity stability issues in PEG”

Polyethylene glycol (PEG) is a widely utilized compound in the formulation of pharmaceutical products, spanning various types of preparations such as parental, topical, oral, rectal, and ophthalmic disorders. Liquid PEGs find application as water-soluble solvents in soft gelatin capsules. It is witnessed that the adsorption of moisture by PEG from the gelatin may occasionally result in the hardening of the capsule shell, which can potentially impact the patient's well-being and hinder the market’s growth.
