Dimethylformamide (DMF) Market Analysis Report (2022 - 2027)

The dimethylformamide (DMF) Market is predicted to grow from $ 687.8 million in 2021 to $ 812.1 million in 2026, at a compound annual rate of 7.25% from 2021 to 2026.

The expansion of the DMF market in the world can be attributed to the escalated call for dimethylformamide from various end-use industries such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, electronics, and agrochemicals. The growing call for polyurethane products by companies that manufacture artificial leather, shoe soles, consumer products (insulation and padding), and their adhesives and coatings is also driving the expansion of the DMF market around the world. Different types of dimethylformamide solvents are employed in different end-use companies, depending on your needs.

These grades of dimethylformamide solvents have different characteristics that differ according to the needs of the applications in which they are employed. Dimethylformamide (DMF) is a colorless and moist organic compound. It forms a homogeneous mixture when added to water and other organic compounds. Dimethylformamide is commonly employed as a solvent in chemical reactions. It is a hydrophilic aprotic solvent and has a high boiling point.

Drivers and Restraints of the Global Dimethylformamide Market

Dimethylformamide is mainly used in pharmaceutical applications, majorly for the re-crystallization of drugs.  With the increase in expenditure towards the healthcare industry, the market looks lucrative. Dimethylformamide is also used in the agrochemicals industry for the production of various pesticides and fertilizers. In addition to this, they are also used in Petrochemical industries for the production of chemicals. All these industrial applications are driving growth in the international marketplace for Dimethylformamide.

Various grades of dimethylformamide solvents offer distinct features, which differ based on the need of end-user applications. On the basis of type, the DMF market has been classified into reactant and feedstock. Growing demand for polyurethane-based products from the automotive industry is fuelling the growth of the DMF market across the world. Further, increasing the use of DMF in applications such as manufacturing drugs, wire enamels and epoxy laminated coatings, and pesticides is also driving the growth of the DMF market across the planet.

The government restrictions regarding the extent of usage of DMF in industries along with the global economic slowdown have had a negative impact on the market, and it is expected to be the major hindering factor to the growth of the DMF industry.

Dimethylformamide Market - By Region

  • North America 
  • Europe 
  • Asia Pacific 
  • Latin America 
  • The Middle East and Africa 

The Asia Pacific region (APAC) is expected to dominate the global Dimethylformamide market in terms of value during the outlook period of 2020 to 2025. The growing population of Asian countries has sparked a demand for Dimethylformamide in several industries. The market in these end-use segments is led by China and a few more Asian countries. Amidst the incessant technological growth, the demand for high-performing Dimethylformamide is increasing. This has led to developments in the APAC Dimethylformamide market.

North America is the second-largest producer of Dimethylformamide. The North American market is foreseen to grow at an estimated CAGR of 4.8% from 2020 to 2025. The easy affordability of natural products is likely to play a crucial role in supporting demand in the North American market. However, in terms of volume, North America is still way behind the Asia Pacific region

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Dimethylformamide Market

Coronavirus has exposed severe challenges to the chemical market by impacting various sectors. The Dimethylformamide market is no different; it saw negative growth in this period owing to the decrease in demand from the manufacturing and chemical production industries which faced severe hardships. The demand was low, and the availability of labor was another factor that made the situation worse.

In addition to this, the reduced capacities of several workplaces affected the efficiency of production. However, more investments are made in the healthcare industries and pharmaceutical sectors. Post the pandemic, the market is expected to grow at a considerable annual growth rate.
