This market research report presents a detailed segmentation of the global pyridine market by type (alpha-picoline, beta-picoline, gamma-picoline, and MEP), by application (agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, chemical synthesis, food, and others), and by geography (APAC, Europe, North America, and ROW). The leading vendors in this market are BASF, Bayer, Dow Chemical Company, DuPont, Mitsubishi Chemical, Lonza, and Vertellus.

Overview of the global pyridine market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts that the global pyridine market will grow at a modest CAGR of over 7% during the forecast period. One of the biggest market segments to use pyridine is the food industry. As pyridine derivatives act as denaturants in antifreeze mixtures and are extensively used in the manufacture of agrochemicals and food additives, its augmented demand from the agrochemicals and pharmaceutical industries will enhance the prospects for market growth until the end of the forecast period. Also, with the rising demand for pyridine derivatives for use in herbicides and pesticides, the need for pyridine and its derivatives for various biocatalysis processes will increase significantly.

Other than the traditional applications, pyridine is also utilized in the electronics and semiconductor industries. In these sectors, pyridine is used like a solvent to prevent rare earth elements and xylene from gelling. It plays an important part in enhancing optical properties of graphene, which is used quite ubiquitously in mobile phones. With emerging applications and new uses for pyridine in the electronics industry, the global market for pyridine will exhibit promising growth during the next four years.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the pyridine market

  • Agrochemicals
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Chemical synthesis
  • Food

The agrochemicals segment is the biggest user of pyridine globally and is expected to generate revenues close to USD 799 million by the end of 2020. Since pyridine is an essential component of many agrochemicals like herbicides and insecticides, much of this segment’s growth can be attributed to the rising demand for food products globally, not just for people but also for farm animals. With a decline in arable land, pyridine and its derivatives are needed not only to increase yields but also to ensure that high-quality food products are available as per market demand.

Geographical segmentation of the pyridine market

  • APAC
  • Europe
  • North America
  • ROW

The APAC region was the largest segment of the global pyridine market with a market share of just over 55% during 2015. Factors such as the increasing demand for niacinamide in the pharmaceuticals and processed foods industries and the rising demand for agricultural chemicals will result in the strong growth of this market in APAC.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global pyridine market is concentrated in APAC and is witnessing rapid consolidation in countries like India and China. The prominent vendors in this market are expected to remain market leaders during the forecast period and are concentrating on out-licensing of local companies and local tie-ups to strengthen their market presence.

Key vendors in the market are -

  • BASF
  • Bayer
  • Dow Chemical Company
  • DuPont
  • Mitsubishi Chemical
  • Lonza
  • Vertellus
