Methanesulfonic Acid Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Product Type (Pharmaceutical Grade, Industrial Grade), By Application (Electroplating, Pharmaceutical & Medicines, Organic Synthesis, Others) and regional forecast 2021-2028

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI103963 | Status : Ongoing



Methanesulfonic acid also abbreviated as MsOH is a colorless liquid and is the simplest chemical amongst the alkylsulfonic acids. In the concentrated form it is hygroscopic in nature. It is considered as the intermediate compound between the sulfuric acid and methylsulphonylmethane. It is used as an acid catalyst in organic reactions and to generate borane (BH3).

Methanesulfonic acid is primary ingredients in the rust removers. It is used to clean off rust from surfaces like ceramics, tiles, and porcelain which generally are sensitive to acids. Increasing demand from industrial sector for rust and scales cleaners is expected to boost the market growth. It is also used as a safer alternative for fluoroboric acid in electroplating applications. Additionally, it is also used to synthesize active pharmaceutical agents like Telmisartan, Angiotensin II receptor antagonist, Eprosartan, and others.

However, the methanesulfonic acid is highly corrosive liquid. It can cause severe burns to skin and eyes. This is expected to limit the market growth.
