Dimethyl carbonate is widely used in various applications such as polycarbonate, solvent, pharmaceutical, pesticide, and other applications.
Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/09/2017 -- Dimethyl carbonate is a clear, colorless, and flammable compound with pleasant odor. It is denser than water, thereby slightly soluble in water. Dimethyl carbonate is an eco-friendly compound that can be used in the production of various chemicals as a solvent. It is rapidly replacing toxic reagents, such as phosgene, as a precursor in the production of polycarbonate. Dimethyl carbonate is produced on a relatively small scale; China accounts for 50% share of the production of dimethyl carbonate in the world.

Dimethyl carbonate is widely used in various applications such as polycarbonate, solvent, pharmaceutical, pesticide, and other applications. Polycarbonate is a transparent and strong engineering thermoplastic used in automotive, glazing, electronics, optical media, medical, lighting, and appliances markets. It is manufactured from diphenyl carbonate, which is manufactured from dimethyl carbonate. Dimethyl carbonate is also an inexpensive oxygenated solvent with excellent solubility properties. It can dissolve numerous solvent coatings. Dimethyl carbonate is often employed in the manufacture of antibiotics such as ciprofloxacin and carbadox in the pharmaceutical industry. Additionally, it is used to manufacture methyl isocyanate, a precursor for the manufacture of carbamate pesticides, in the pesticide industry. In terms of volume, the polycarbonate segment held more than 50% share of the global dimethyl carbonate market in 2014. Demand for dimethyl carbonate is primarily driven by increasing demand for polycarbonate in automotive and electronics industries in emerging economies of Asia Pacific.
Based on region, the global dimethyl carbonate market has been segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific constituted approximately 45% share of the dimethyl carbonate market in terms of volume in 2014. It was the largest market for dimethyl carbonate, followed by Europe, North America, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America in 2014.
