Dimethyl Carbonate (DMC) Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Grade (Industrial Grade (99%), Reagent Grade (99.1% - 99.8%), Battery Grade (99.9%)), By Application (Chemical Synthesis, Pharmaceuticals, Pesticides, Paints & Dyes, Electronics, Others) Others and Regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region :Global | Report ID: FBI102131 | Status : Ongoing



The anticipated growth of the DMC market in the upcoming years is fueled by rising demand for polycarbonate and other chemicals. Dimethyl carbonate (DMC) is an excellent solvent and approved as a green reagent by the U.S. DMC was removed in 2009 from the restricted chemicals list of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Traditionally, DMC was synthesized by reacting phosgene and methanol, but the reaction formed toxic intermediates and byproducts. The process was replaced by a more viable oxidative carbonylation process of carbon monoxide or methanol. Further researches led to the development of a new method in which ethylene carbonate was trans-esterified in the presence of CO2, a greenhouse gas. This research resulted in giving DMC the certification as a green reagent. Dimethyl carbonate is used to manufacture coatings, adhesives, and cleaning agents. Additionally, DMC has found its application as an electrolyte in batteries and as a pharmaceutical intermediate.

Up Arrow

Key Market Driver -

Rising demand for lithium-ion batteries from electronics industry to drive the DMC market

Down Arrow

Key Market Restraint -

Moisture absorption reduces efficiency of DMC

The rapid growth of the electronics industry has resulted in a large scale demand for batteries to power the devices.  Li-ion batteries mainly found tremendous traction for powering smartphones and other portable electronics. As DMC is a critical component in the manufacture of these Li-ion batteries, its market is expected to mirror the growth of the Li-ion battery market.

DMC Industry has the capability of absorbing a significant amount of water from the environment, which reduces the efficiency of DMC as an electrolyte. This factor restricts its adoption from smartphone manufacturers who are seeking smaller, lightweight batteries.
