Dimethyl Carbonate (DMC) Market Size, Share & Growth (2021 - 2026)

The global Dimethyl Carbonate (DMC) Market is foreseen to enlist a robust CAGR of 6.49% to cross USD 605.3 Million by 2026 during the forecast period 2022 - 2027.

Dimethyl carbonate (DMC) is a non-poisonous inorganic compound with substance equation OC(OCH3)2. It exists in fluid structure and has no color. DMC is combustible and can be delegated into a carbonate ester. It can without much of a stretch blend in with practically all-natural solvents, including alcohols, ketones, and ethers, among others. Besides, it is less poisonous in nature and has interesting sub-atomic structure, which makes it fit for different applications, specifically fuel added substances, pesticides, drugs, solvents, and others. It is fundamentally utilized as a methylating agent in the creation of analgesics, anti-infective, and antipyretic medications. Prior, DMC was delivered by reaction of phosgene with methanol. Because of the poisonous idea of phosgene gas, DMC is presently delivered by oxidation of methanol carbonylation or transesterification.

Recent Developments

  • In March 2016, Ube Industries, Ltd. signed a deal with CNSG Anhui Hong Sifang Co., Ltd, a fine chemicals manufacturer based in China. According to an agreement Ube has licensed its technology for manufacturing dimethyl carbonate (DMC) to CNSG Anhui Hong Sifang.

  • In December 2017, Shandong Shida Shenghua Chemical Group Co Ltd published about its cooperation agreement with a new energy research institute to extend its reach in the hydrogen fuel cell sand lithium-ion battery business. This development is foreseen to support the organizational efforts to create high purity solvents.

  • In December 2013, Ube Industries, Ltd. revised the prices for dimethyl carbonate (DMC) product. The company stated that the surge in prices for DMC in line with the increased expenses related to raw materials like methanol.

Dimethyl Carbonate (DMC) Market Drivers
