Dimethyl Ether Market – Overview

The Global Dimethyl Ether (DME) Market is precipitating with the rapid speed; mainly due to the proliferation of its application in manufacturing liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). According to a recent study report published by the Market Research Future, The global market of Dimethyl Ether is predicted to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The market is forecasted to demonstrate a stunning growth by 2027, surpassing its previous growth records in terms of value with a striking CAGR during the estimated period (2017 – 2027).

Globally, the market for Dimethyl Ether is driven by the region Asia pacific, owing to the rise in the population resulting in to increasing demand for LPG for household purposes. DME is manufactured by dehydration of methanol from syngas which is obtained from coal. Due to the numerous coal reserves in the Asia Pacific is anticipated to bridge the raw material demand gap for DME raw materials. Dimethyl Ether are extensively used to blend with LPG as a solvent additive to cost economize the manufacturing process. Dimethyl Ether has a low boiling point, low viscosity and a smoke free combustion can be achieved when it is used as a solvent blender with transportation and heating fuels. Due to the high cost of DME, it is blended with LPG to save the manufacturing cost. DME, is getting a huge demand from construction industry owing to its use in manufacturing spray based paints & coatings in the vapour state bottled in a pressurized container. When DME is subjected to moderate pressure and temperature it is modified into liquid phase from gas phase vice versa. Thus, it can be transported easily when compared to LPG or LNG. Dimethyl ether is not expected to be persistent in the environment and is not bio-accumulative.

September 2015 – Tokyo (Japan), one of the key manufacturers of Dimethyl Ether, Mitsubishi Corporation (MC) have announced to construct a methanol and dimethyl ether plant at Trinidad and Tobago has been reached with the help of Japan Bank for International Corporation (JBIC) and the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd. (BTMU) is expected to be complete by March, 2019.

January 2017 – DME fuel, which is approved for utilization in the entire U.S., as DME releases zero, same diesel performance and it is considered to be a clean energy, utilization of DME ensures the zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into air causing no air pollution. Utilizing organic waste as a raw material in the production of DME can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 68%-101% relatively compared to diesel as calculated by the US Environmental Protection Agency and recently published by US Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory.
