The Business Research Company’s reports are based on the methodology below.
Our datasets are created using a wide range of proprietary and public sources including leading government bodies, associations, trade journals, market intelligence reports and trade magazines. Data is modelled based on hard data, extrapolation, regression analysis based on known macro data inputs, interpolation between hard figures, comparisons with other geographies and markets, price estimations, and qualitative inputs. Data is triangulated within our unique market data model covering an exhaustive list of 200+ markets across 12 countries and 5 regions. Comparable data is used for sanity check and trend analysis. For example our global market value data is compared to unit sales and price data for the relevant market as well as relevant macro-economic datasets in order to establish validity.
Market value is defined as the revenues earned by organizations for products and services within the specified market. The break down by geography is revenue generated within the specific industry by organizations in the specified geography, irrespective of where they are produced.
Competitor Market Share Data
The competitor market share data is intended to represent the companies that gain the most revenues from the given market and the percentage share of the market that they hold. If a company derives most of its revenues from the market, its revenues are given in full. If a large part of the company's revenues come from other markets, only the division of the company which operates in this market is included. Where accurate information is not available on the revenues a company generates from the market its market share is not included, however a profile of the company may still be included if it is a significant competitor in the market.
Analysis is drawn from our Consultants’ wide range of industry and research experience as well as public and proprietary sources. Consultants are trained in research techniques and ethics by the Market Research Society.
Verification Through Expert Interviews
Every year The Business Research Company carries out thousands of interviews with senior executives and industry experts across hundreds of markets. Through these interviews we develop our internal understanding of markets and geographies and cross reference our understanding of global markets with expert feedback utilizing ‘Delphic’ research methodologies.
The Business Research Company prides itself on the quality and validity of its data and analysis. Our unique ‘end noted’ referencing approach allows the user to trace our market numbers and analysis back to the specific data sources they were derived from.
Olefin derivatives are chemicals that are produced by further processing basic olefins. The olefins derivatives market does not include poly-olefins. Olefin derivatives are manufactured by employing various industrial chemical processing methods such as chlorination, oxidation, and ammoxidation of olefins. Olefin derivatives are some key industrial chemicals and also act as raw materials for producing other chemical products. Olefin derivatives market includes acrylonitrile, ethylene oxide, propylene glycol, butanol, etc.
Asia-Pacific was the largest region in the olefin derivatives market in 2017, accounting for 38.8% share in the market. This was due to growth in olefin derivatives production through a combination of steam cracker plants development and coal-based olefins production in China, India and Southeast Asian nations. Availability of raw materials such as olefins for production has supported the olefin derivatives consumption.
North America was the second largest region in the olefin derivatives market in 2017, accounting for 21.3% share in the market. This was because of the rise in production of olefin derivatives in the US to cater to increase in demand from European and South American regions. Availability of raw materials such as olefins for production has supported the olefin derivatives consumption.
Middle East was the smallest region in the olefin derivatives market in 2017, accounting for $3.2 billion or 4.0% share in the market.
Growing Use Of Acetonitrile In Pharmaceutical Products
The use of acetonitrile in pharmaceutical products is increasing rapidly. This is primarily driven by the introduction of advanced pharmaceutical products and improved standards of living in industrialized countries. Acetonitrile is used as a basic raw material for synthesizing vitamins A and B1, sulfa pyrimidine, cortisone, carbonate drugs, and some amino acids. Additionally, it is also used as an important solvent in the pharmaceutical industry, with applications as a reagent, reaction solvent and extraction solvent. For instance, acetonitrile is used as an extraction solvent in the production of insulin and antibiotics (third-generation cephalosporins). Although acetonitrile supply is currently limited due to restricted production during the second half of 2017 in China and the US, it is expected to gain momentum as new production capacities are planned in India and China.
