Dimethyl carbonate is an all-round chemical that displays desirable  characteristics for instance good solvency and low toxicity.  In terms of physical appearance, it is an inflammable, scentless chemical with a pallid appearance. It exhibits high reactivity with other chemicals. Earlier, dimethyl carbonate was produced by the reaction of methanol with phosgene but due to intense toxicity of phosgene, the chemical is now produced through other methods for instance transesterification or the copper catalyzed. Dimethyl carbonate has various applications in end-use industries. Dimethyl carbonate is widely used as a solvent in the paints and coatings industry because of its desirable chemical characteristics. 

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • Ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is adversely impacting the dimethyl carbonate market. The novel virus is disturbing supply chains and affecting the business in China, since Chinese producers are heavy users of polycarbonate and lithium battery manufacturing. Due to lockdown in most countries that have an upsurge in the number of COVID-19 patients, manufacturing plants have been temporarily put to a halt until the infection subsides.
  • The COVID-19 outbreak has caused a sluggishness in the manufacturing of polycarbonates and lithium-ion batteries in China. As such, more than half of the DMC in China is being manufactured via green synthesis of propylene carbonate (PC) and methanol to follow the environmental regulations. Manufacturers are zeroing in towards various types of ionic liquids that play a critical role in the synthesis of DMC.

Top Impacting Factors
Characteristics of dimethyl carbonate for instance non-toxicity, biodegradability and high solvency make it as one of the perfect organic chemicals to be used in various end-use industries. Hence, it is progressively taking the place xylene, benzene, ethyl, acetone and other chemicals as a solvent which is reasoned as one of the critical factor for the development of the dimethyl carbonate market. Also, its utilization in the paints and coatings industry is anticipated to boost the growth of the dimethyl carbonate market because of the current boom in the construction industry.
However, the demand for dimethyl carbonate is on a global rise; the manufacturers are facing some challenges that are projected to hinder the anticipated growth. Permitting guidelines for the producers of dimethyl carbonate are stringent owing to which manufacturers face tough time getting the license, which may negatively affect the growth in the long run. Also, obstacles in implementation of the advanced technology to make desirable process environment is also anticipated to restraint the growth of the dimethyl carbonate market during the forecast period.
Market Trends

  • Asia-Pacific is anticipated to be one of the dominant forces in the global dimethyl carbonate market because of the high demand for the polycarbonate in the automotive & electronics industry in the region. Increase in per capita income is also one of the substantial factors for the growth of the dimethyl carbonate market in the region. Europe and North America are anticipated to record substantial growth during the forecast period because of high adoption of environment-friendly chemicals as an intermediate
  • LAMEA is anticipated to witness steady growth in the demand for dimethyl carbonate because of surge in demand for paints and coatings from the construction industry. Thus, the overall dimethyl carbonate market is anticipated to experience healthy and steady growth during the forecast period
  • The Asia Pacific region accounted forone of the largest share of the dimethyl carbonate market. China, India, Japan, and South Korea are key nations contributing to the increased demand for dimethyl carbonate in this region. In China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, and Taiwan, dimethyl carbonate is primarily utilized in the production of polycarbonates, on the other hand in India, it is prominently consumed by the pharmaceutical, paints & coatings, and agrochemical industries to produce different products such as medicines, paints, and pesticides.
