Global Dimethyl Carbonate Market to Grow at a CAGR of 6.41% During the Period 2017 - 2021; Finds New Report

Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “Global Dimethyl Carbonate Market 2017 - 2021” research report to their website


Lewes, DE -- (SBWire) -- 01/10/2018 --Report forecast the global dimethyl carbonate market to grow at a CAGR of 6.41% during the period 2017-2021.

Dimethyl carbonate or DMC (CH3OC(O)OCH3) is a non-toxic organic compound, which has versatile properties and exhibits high reactivity to chemicals and metals. It is generally colorless, flammable, and distinguished as a carbonate ester.

DMC is used as a methylating agent and as an intermediate to produce polycarbonate. For instance, bisphenol-A polycarbonate (PC) is manufactured through a transesterification between bisphenol-A (BPA) and DMC.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global dimethyl carbonate market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the retail selling price as the average selling price of the product.

The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
- Americas

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is High demand for DMC for polycarbonate production. DMC is widely used for producing polycarbonate. The properties of polycarbonate are the superior light transmission, creep modulus, dimensional stability, heat resistance, and electrical insulation. Thus, it is extensively used in automotive parts and electrical and electronics equipment. The demand for polycarbonate is mainly driven by the growth and expansion of the automotive and electrical and electronics industries.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Phosgene: Highly toxic raw material used for synthesis of DMC. DMC is usually synthesized by the reaction of phosgene with methanol in the presence of sodium hydroxide. Phosgene used in the process is highly toxic to the environment as it causes pollution when comes in contact with air or water. In addition, phosgene causes cancer, respiratory diseases and heart strokes in humans. The disposal of phosgene is also very difficult. Manufacturers and consumers are not opting for phosgene-based DMC. The eco-friendly routes for the synthesis of DMC have disadvantages of low yield. For instance, when urea and methanol are used to produce DMC, it results in about 50% yield of the final product. Thus, it poses a significant challenge to the market.
