Chloroformate Market Outlook - 2026
Chloroformates are a class of organic compounds with the chemical formula ROC(O)Cl. Chloroformates are reactive chemical species which are used as key building blocks and reagents in many diverse downstream applications. Chloroformates are clear, colorless liquids with relatively low freezing points and high boiling points (>100°C). Some of the well-known applications of chloroformate are pharmaceutical production, agrochemical production, polymerization, and others.
The demand for chloroformate is expected to increase, owing to the growth in various end-user industries like pharmaceutical, agriculture, and plant nurseries. The increased demand is driven by the growing applications of chloroformate in industries such as dyes, resins, and perfumes. In addition, Benzyl chloroformate is one of the promising types of chloroformates used in various industries to undertake mass production. Pharmaceuticals and agrochemical industries are the key consumers of Benzyl chloroformate, especially carbamates, which are used as herbicides, insecticides, sprout inhibitors, fungicides, biocides, and others. Hence, the growth in use of chloroformates in the agriculture industry further encourages the market growth. However, some of the chloroformates are hazardous to health, for example, benzyl chloroformates can cause irritation to skin or eyes, thus, acts as a restrain for the market growth. Moreover, it is carcinogenic in nature, which is further anticipated to challenge the overall market growth during the forecast period. Furthermore, primary function of chloroformates as intermediate is expected to develop new applications in chemical production. Since, the chemical industry is undertaking mass production, chloroformates are anticipated to have new growth opportunities in the chemical industry during the forecast period.
The global chloroformates market is segmented by type, application, and region. By type, it is segmented into diethylene glycol bis-chloroformate (DECF), ethyl chloroformate (ECF), isobutyl chloroformate (IBCF), isopropyl chloroformate (IPCF), methyl chloroformate (MCF), n-propyl chloroformate (NPCF), n-butyl chloroformate (NBCF), and others. By application, it is divided into agrochemical, organic synthesis, plastics & pigments, anhydrides, pharmaceutical production, polymerization initiators, and polycarbonates. Region wise, it is segmented across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
