Pyridine Market by Type (Pyridine-N-Oxide, Alpha Picoline, Beta Picoline, Gamma Picodine, and 2-Methyl-5-Ethylpyridine (MEP))

Global Pyridine Market was valued at $542 million in 2016, and is expected to reach $773 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 5.1% from 2017 to 2023.


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/05/2017 -- Pyridine is a heterocyclic organic compound, which is basic in nature with the chemical formula C5H5N. Structurally, pyridine is similar to benzene, except one methine group is replaced by a nitrogen atom. The pyridine ring occurs in several different compounds such as vitamins, azines, niacin, and pyridoxine. Increase in demand for pyridine, specifically in pharmaceuticals, and as a denaturant in antifreeze mixtures drives the overall demand for pyridine globally.
