The country has already started focusing on replacing diesel with DME, which may further reduce emission levels in China.

“LPG blending – the biggest and Transportation fuel – the fastest growing” Dimethyl Ether market

DME emerged as a reliable alternate source for energy deficit countries. Blending DME with LPG has shown a bright way to the countries reducing the consumption of LPG. Currently, a high share of DME is consumed for blending with LPG and the demand by LPG segment is further expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 10.0% from 2013 to 2023.

Volvo AB, as a part of BioDME consortium, has developed some trucks in Sweden that are running on bio based DME. Similar, efforts are also being taken in China and Japan. Majorly driven by intense efforts of these countries, DME consumption as a diesel substitute is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2013 to 2018, as well as from 2013 to 2023.
