Glycerine is a by-product of the biodiesel industry. Owing to the exponential growth of biodiesel production worldwide and particularly in Europe, the glycerine market has been driven during the last few years by the oversupply being generated by the biodiesel industry. Prices of both refined and crude glycerine have fallen to all-time lows. Consequently, there are clear signs that demand for glycerine is growing strongly with new usages both for crude and refined glycerine now to the fore. This article attempts to analyse to what extent a « substitution/new-usage breakthrough » for glycerine is occurring and will propose a supply/demand scenario for the coming 3 years. It will also attempt to predict how glycerine prices will develop over the same period.
Key words: biodiesel / glycerine / glycerol / market / supply / demand / prices / new usages
