                                             Dimethyl Carbonate Market

Dimethyl Carbonate - Overview

Dimethyl carbonate is a versatile chemical with favorable properties such as high solubility and low toxicity. It has a pale look and is combustible, odorless, and inflammable. It has a high degree of reactivity with other compounds. Previously, dimethyl carbonate was made by reacting methanol with phosgene, but due to phosgene's high toxicity, the chemical is now made using different processes, such as transesterification or copper-catalyzed reactions. Dimethyl carbonate is used in a variety of end-use industries.

Global Dimethyl Carbonate Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Use Of Dimethyl Carbonate In Battery Production

The dimethyl carbonate is used as an electrolyte in lithium-ion batteries. These lithium-ion batteries are used in almost all types of electronic items including consumer electronics such as smartphones, laptops, etc., as well as electric vehicles, medical equipment, and so on due to longer life and better rate capacity. With the increasing production and demand for electronic items in the industry, the demand for dimethyl carbonate is also projected to rise, propelling the overall global dimethyl carbonate market growth.

Rising Research And Development Activities Surrounding Dimethyl Carbonate

The researchers are significantly focusing on research and development activities surrounding dimethyl carbonate and its applications. For instance, a team of researchers at the University of Bath’s Center for Sustainable and Circular Technologies (CSCT) has developed methods of recycling plastic waste which can be transformed into its chemical constituents including dimethyl carbonate and bisphenol A (BPA). Such researchers present lucrative growth opportunities for market growth.

Restraints

Huge Demand And Supply Gap For Dimethyl Carbonate

As the expanding application of dimethyl carbonate in various sectors, the manufacturers are facing huge challenges to meet the surging global supply. These challenges multiplied several folds post the COVID-19 outbreak when the expansion of production plants needed to be temporarily paused during the lockdown. The prices of raw materials are also increasing at a high rate with rising market demand for dimethyl carbonate and limited supply, which pose huge restrictions over the dimethyl carbonate market.

Impact of COVID-19 on Dimethyl Carbonate Market

The unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic outbreak significantly halted the growth of the global dimethyl carbonate market. The lockdown imposed by the countries to mitigate the virus spread negatively impacted both the production as well as the supply of dimethyl carbonate. The operations of major end-user industries such as consumer electronic production, battery production, paints, and coatings, etc., were also obstructed due to social distancing norms and shortage of workforce. Due to these factors, the dimethyl carbonate manufacturers had to face huge losses during the COVID-19 period.

Global Dimethyl Carbonate Market - By Synthesis

Based on synthesis, the global dimethyl carbonate market is segmented into methanol phosgenation, oxidative carbonylation of methanol (ENI), oxidative carbonylation of methanol via methyl nitrate (UBE), ethylene carbonate transesterification process (ASAHI), urea transesterification, and direct synthesis from CO2. The production of industrial dimethyl carbonate commonly involves the reaction of methanol with carbon monoxide and oxygen. Due to the creation of an azeotrope, the procedure yields a combination of methanol and DMC that cannot be separated by simple distillation.

Dimethyl Carbonate Market - By End-User

Based on end-user, the global dimethyl carbonate market is segmented into plastics, paints & coatings, pharmaceuticals, batteries, agrochemicals, and others. The paints & coatings segment accounts for the largest market share owing to its prominent use in making environment-friendly solvents including coatings, adhesives, and cleaning agents. However, the batteries segment also covers a substantial market share as they are commonly used as an electrolyte in lithium-ion batteries used in consumer electronic goods as well as electric vehicles.

Dimethyl Carbonate Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the global dimethyl carbonate market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle-East & Africa. North America dominates the global dimethyl carbonate market owing to the increasing construction activities for public and private infrastructure development. Furthermore, the presence of leading dimethyl carbonate makers also acts as a significant factor in propelling the overall market growth. However, the Asia-Pacific region is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Competitive Landscape

The leading market players of the global dimethyl carbonate market are Sabic, Liaoning Oxiranchem, LOTTE, CNSG Anhui Redsifang, Mitsubishi Chemical, Shandong Depu Chemical, UBE, Hi-tech Spring, Shida Shenghua, Tongling Jintai Chemical, Shandong Wells Chemicals, Merck KGaA, Panax Etec, Kowa Company Ltd., Arrow Chemical Group Corp., Kishida Chemical Co. Ltd., Haike Chemical Group, Guangzhou Tinci Materials Technology Co., Ltd., AkzoNobel, EMD Millipore Corporation, and other prominent players.

The global dimethyl carbonate market is highly fragmented with the presence of several global and regional industry players. The companies significantly invest in research and development activities to expand their product scope. They are also establishing new production plants to boost their output and product penetration. Furthermore, the adoption of competitive strategies such as partnerships, mergers, acquisitions, collaborations, etc., is also prominent in this market.

Recent Development

  • In February 2022, Lotte Chemical, a South Korean chemicals company, announced the investment of USD 500 million to boost the output of ethylene carbonate and dimethyl carbonate at its complex in Daesan, South Korea.
