Potassium Methylate Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Solution, Powder), By Application (Biodiesel, Personal Care, Agriculture, Pharma & Healthcare, Others) and Regional Forecast, 2023-2030

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI103405 | Status : Ongoing



Potassium methylate is a white amorphous powder with no odor at standard pressure and temperature. It has a density of 1.7 g/cm³, which is higher than the water. It provides high activity, and is available at low cost. It can be classified as a flammable solid, but it is neither an explosive nor an oxidizer. Furthermore, in the transesterification reactions, it is used as an alkaline catalyst, in fine and heavy-tonnage organic synthesis. The potassium methylate also finds its application in the biodiesel production, personal care, agriculture, pharma & healthcare.

Rising demand for potassium methylate in the biodiesel production will fuel the market growth. The biodiesel is produced from animal fats and vegetable oils. In which potassium methylate is used as a catalyst to convert these oils into biodiesel. Additionally, the demand for potassium methylate is also high when compared with sodium methylate. For instance, according to the BDI-BioEnergy International GmbH, the potassium-based catalysts offer key benefits over the sodium counterpart, it also has the ability to handle and recoverfree fatty acids. Hence, rising the demand forpotassium methylate for the production of biodiesel will surge the market growth during the forecast timeline.  

However, the lack of availability of potassium methylates leads to a decrease in the supply for the product, which further raises the demand for substitute products which include sodium methylate. Hence, this is anticipated to restrict the market growth.
