Ethylene carbonate is not only used as an electrolyte for batteries in EV vehicles, but also find application in automotive lubricants, surface coatings, and automotive plastics manufacturing. These factors are expected to drive demand during the forecast period.
As ethylene carbonate is a highly polar solvent and dissolves large amount of electrolyte, it is mainly used in lithium batteries electrolyte solution.
It can also readily dissolve polymers leading to use as a release agent and detergent.

The Global EV battery Ethylene carbonate market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Huntsman Plans Increased Production of EV Battery Ethylene Carbonate in Conroe, Texas In recent years, Huntsman has seen strong growth in ULTRAPURE Ethylene Carbonate tied to the evolution of EVs and the localization of lithium-ion battery production.
To meet this increased demand, Huntsman has added a range of new high-purity grades of Ethylene Carbonate for EV battery applications.
This capacity expansion will leverage the position as the only US producer of cyclic carbonates and support the rapid growth of the US and European lithium-ion battery markets for EVs.
Ethylene carbonate is typically used in the liquid electrolyte for Li-ion batteries, along with LiPF6, and at least one linear carbonate selected from dimethyl carbonate (DMC), diethyl carbonate (DEC), ethyl methyl carbonate (EMC) and many additives.
High-performance lithium-ion batteries require electrolytes that are stable over wide operating voltages. They used density functional theory to investigate the degradation of ethylene carbonate (EC) electrolytes activated by interactions with LiCoO2 cathode surfaces and PF5 species in the electrolyte.
The detailed mechanisms for the activation of EC ring-opening reactions by Lewis acids to form CO2, organics, or organofluorines.
