Report Highlights

Global Dimethyl Carbonate Market: Overview

Dimethyl carbonate is a colorless, transparent and flammable organic compound classified as a carbon ester. It is an environmentally suitable compound that can used for upgrading several promising renewables including fatty acids, glycerol, polysaccharides, triglycerides, and lignin-based phenolic compounds and sugar-derived platform molecules.

Dimethyl carbonate had received its VOC exemption and is considered as a nontoxic, safe, and eco-friendly organic chemical. The key application of dimethyl carbonate is manufacturing of polycarbonates in which it is used as an intermediate. Polycarbonates are a type of plastics known for their impact resistance, high dielectric strength, and optical transparency. In North America, dimethyl carbonate is majorly used for manufacturing of pesticides, followed by pharmaceutical and intermediate chemicals.

Global Dimethyl Carbonate Market: Trends and Opportunities

Asia Pacific dominated the dimethyl carbonate market both in terms of volume and value and is likely to remain dominant during the forecast period with a significant CAGR compare to other regions. China is the manufacturing hub in the world with a presence of large number of polycarbonate, pharmaceutical, pesticide, chemical processing plants, etc., wherein there is perpetual demand for dimethyl carbonate. Numerous small and medium manufacturers of dimethyl carbonate are located in China. The country exports majority of its production to developed and emerging economies.

In terms of application, the polycarbonate segment held a major share of the market in 2016 and is likely to continue its dominance during the forecast period. Dimethyl carbonate is a prominent additive for gasoline with high oxygen content and extraordinary blending properties. Dimethyl carbonate, as a VOC exempt solvent, is utilized in paints & coatings, electrochemical, and personal care sectors. Dimethyl carbonate containing solvent system is the best electrolyte system, which results in a good electrochemical and chemical stability, when applied to lithium ion batteries. Manufacturers of dimethyl carbonate establish long-term supply agreements with key suppliers of raw materials in order to procure raw materials at a fixed price. This lowers the impact of price volatility.
