Overview of the global dimethyl carbonate market

Technavio's dimethyl carbonate market research report identifies that the superior properties of dimethyl carbonate (DMC) will be one of the primary growth drivers for the global dimethyl carbonate market till 2021. DMC is highly popular among various end-users due to its eco-friendly nature and low price. It is also used as a fuel additive and can replace ethanol due to its low toxicity, low vapor pressure, high boiling point, non-hygroscopic, and fully miscible components. DMC is more beneficial in comparison to other methylating reagents such as iodomethane and dimethyl sulfate due to its biodegradability property. Manufacturers are now producing DMC from catalytic oxidative carbonylation of methanol with carbon monoxide and oxygen, which is non-toxic in nature unlike phosgene. Technavio's dimethyl carbonate industry analysis predicts that this market will grow at a CAGR of more than 6% by 2021.

The potential application of dimethyl carbonate in the energy sector is identified as one of the key trends that will drive the growth prospects for the global dimethyl carbonate market during the forecast period. Numerous battery companies extensively use DMC because it is used as an electrolyte solvent for lithium-ion rechargeable batteries. The rising adoption of hybrid vehicles across the globe will further boost the demand for DMC in lithium-ion rechargeable batteries.
