  4. > Dimethyl Carbonate Market for Polycarbonate, Solvent, Pharmaceutical, Pesticide, and Other Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2023

Dimethyl carbonate is a green chemical that can be used as a starting material for organic synthesis, replacing harmful compounds such as dimethyl sulfate and phosgene. It is denser than water and slightly soluble in water. Additionally, dimethyl carbonate has mild non-offensive odor and favorable evaporation rate and economic profiles. Expansion of the polycarbonate industry coupled with increasing demand in the paints & coatings industry is projected to drive the dimethyl carbonate market during the forecast period. Additionally, its potential application as a gasoline additive in the energy industry is anticipated to provide opportunities for market growth during the forecast period.
Dimethyl carbonate is produced on a relatively small scale; China accounts for 50% share of the production of dimethyl carbonate. It can be produced according to the following technologies: phosgene route, epoxide route, and oxidative carbonylation route. Under the phosgene route, phosgene reacts with methanol to provide dimethyl carbonate and hydrochloric acid. Under the epoxide route, epoxides react with carbon dioxide to provide cyclic carbonates. Cyclic carbonates yield dimethyl carbonate and glycols after transesterification with methanol. Under the oxidative route, carbon monoxide and methanol react with an oxidant compound (nitrogen oxide or oxygen) to yield dimethyl carbonate.
This study analyzes, estimates, and forecasts the global dimethyl carbonate market in terms of volume (Kilo Tons) and revenue (US$ Mn) from 2014 to 2023. Market numbers given in the report describe the global demand for dimethyl carbonate, but not the production or supply. The dimethyl carbonate report also analyzes several driving and restraining factors and their impact on the market during the forecast period.
