Chloromethanes Market Value and Growth:

The Chloromethane market is expected to register a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period (2021-2026). Chloromethane is a derivative of methane; it is a colorless, poisonous, highly flammable gas with a slightly sweet odor. It is shipped in liquid form under its vapor pressure. Initially, chloromethane was used as a refrigerant, but it was discontinued due to its toxicity and flammability. This is widely used in the manufacture of active pharmaceutical ingredients and in the silicone industry and is also used in other chemicals.

Chloromethanes Market Trends:

Most of the chloromethane produced is used as a raw material in the manufacture of chemical intermediates such as methylchlorosilanes. These methylchlorosilanes are used in the manufacture of silicone fluids. Silicone chloromethane fluids are used in a wide range of products, including processing aids (anti-swelling agents, mold release agents and light lubricants) and specialty chemicals for consumer products (cosmetics, polishers and paper. self esteem). Silicone resins are used in hydrophobic resins, coatings, molding resins, electrical insulation, laminate resins, etc. Chloromethanes exhibits properties such as solubility in organic solvents, water repellency and flexibility. These are highly used in the automotive and automobile industries. In addition, in the building industry, silicones are used in glazing and bonded exterior waterproofing, while contributing to the energy efficiency of buildings. They also help improve shop productivity, reduce material waste, extend building life and reduce life cycle costs. These factors are expected to promote the growth rate of the chloromethanes market.  

Recent Developments in the Chloromethanes Market:

In April 2019, Nouryon announced a project that increases the production of chloromethane at the site in Frankfurt, Germany. This will level up the demand from the customers across the world.

Chloromethanes Market Drivers:

Increasing utilization choloromethanes in various industries such as pharmaceutical, personal care and others are elevating the demand of the market. Rising demand for silicone elastomers in various end-use industries, such as construction and automotive, is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. Chloromethanes are colorless, water soluble, and highly flammable organic compounds with a slight sweet odor. They are prepared by the reaction of hydrogen chloride and methanol and can also be produced alternatively by chlorination of methane. Increasing affordability and growth in passenger car sales are also expected to drive demand for silicone polymers. The demand for silicon polymers in the automotive industry is attributed to regulations on the vehicle weight. Light vehicles save fuel and therefore reduce carbon emissions. Automotive production is increasing dramatically in Asia, driving the demand for silicone polymers in the region.

Chloromethanes Market Restraints:

Strict regulations on methyl chloride and the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic are the main constraints, which are expected to hamper the growth of the chloromethanes market. The high levels of toxicity and environmental issues associated with the use of Chloromethane may hamper the growth of the market.

Opportunities in the Chloromethanes Market:

On going research and development activities to introduce new products in favor to the end users is setting up growth opportunities for the market.

Challenges in the Chloromethanes Market:

The consumption of products in Germany and other European countries is expected to face challenges from the European Union (EU) as it has classified chloromethane as an ozone-depleting substance, which is expected to affect the market demand for chloromethanes market.
