Pyridine Market Overview:

The global pyridine market Size accounted for $530 million in 2017, and is anticipated to generate $783 million in 2025, growing at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2018 to 2025.

Pyridine is a heterocyclic organic compound, which is basic in nature with the chemical formula C5H5N. The structure of pyridine is similar to benzene, wherein one methine group is replaced by a nitrogen atom. The pyridine ring occurs in several different compounds such as vitamins, azines, niacin, and pyridoxine. Increase in demand for pyridine, specifically in pharmaceuticals, and as a denaturant in antifreeze mixtures majorly drives the demand for pyridine globally.

Pyridine Market


Pyridine derivatives are widely used in the production of agrochemicals and food additives, and in manufacturing various herbicides, pesticides, and insecticides. The key factors that boost the growth of the global pyridine market include increase in pest control activities and surge in awareness about pyridine among farmers.

Furthermore, increase in demand of pyridine as a denaturant is anticipated to drive the market growth. However, stringent government regulations toward the use of pyridine and health hazards associated with pyridine toxicity are anticipated to restrict the growth of the market. Conversely, increase in R&D activities in reducing the toxicity of pyridine due to its beneficial usage in pharmaceuticals, chemicals, agrochemicals, and food & beverages is expected to provide lucrative opportunities in the pyridine industry.

The global pyridine market is segmented based on type, application, and region. On the basis of type, the market is divided into pyridine N-oxide, alpha picoline, beta picoline, gamma picoline, and 2-methyl-5-ethylpyridine. Depending on application, it is classified into agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, foods, and others. Region wise, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

The key players analyzed in this report are Jubilant Life Sciences, Resonance Specialties Limited, Lonza Group Ltd., Vertellus Specialties Inc., Red Sun Group, Shangdong Luba Chemical Co. Ltd., Koei Chemical Company Limited, Weifang Sunwin Chemical Company Limited, Mitsubishi Chemical Company, and Bayer AG.

The other players in the value chain (profiles not included in the report) include Novasyn Organics, Resonance Specialties Limited, Labex Corporation, LeeChem India Pvt. Ltd., GFS Chemicals Inc., Seidler Chemical Company, Hudson Chemicals, Prochem Inc., Innova Chemicals and Scientific Solutions, LLC, and others.


Asia-Pacific holds a dominant position in the global pyridine market, owing to upsurge in demand for niacinamide in the pharmaceutical industry and processed food industries. Moreover, rise in need for agrochemicals has fueled the growth of this market in Asia-Pacific. However, the LAMEA region is expected to witness substantial increase in the demand for pyridine & pyridine derivatives, owing to surge in interest of manufacturers in the region to tap the growing market of agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals.


Beta picoline serves as the most lucrative segment in the pyridine market, as it is used extensively in agrochemical to manufacture chlorpyrifos, which is an organophosphate pesticide. Beta-picoline is a colorless organic liquid with a strong odor, a positional isomer of methylpyridine. It is a precursor to pyridine derivatives, and finds applications in the pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals such as chlorpyrifos.

The chemicals segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the fact that pyridine is a vital raw material in the chemical industry, as it is used as solvent, reagent, and precursor of several chemicals. The major producers of pyridine include Evonik Industries, Rütgers Chemicals, Imperial Chemical Industries, and Koei Chemical.

Analyst Review

Pyridine is a colorless flammable liquid with an unpleasant odor. It is produced by breaking down naturally occurring substances, such as coal tar, or is synthesized from other chemicals. Pyridine is used as a solvent in several chemical reactions to synthesize different products, such as vitamins, medicines, pesticides, food flavorings, dyes, paints, adhesives, rubber products, and waterproofing for fabrics.

Rise in the demand for agrochemicals and increase in use of pyridine in pharmaceuticals drive the demand for pyridine and its derivatives. Moreover, increase in per capita disposable incomes, especially in the developing countries, such as China and India, rapid urbanization, and rise in consumer expenditure propels the global market growth.

The European pyridine market offers numerous opportunities for the manufacturers, owing to increase in demand for high-quality agrochemicals and herbicides, especially in the developing economies, such as France, Russia, Poland, and others, and increase in number of pyridine manufacturers. Asia-Pacific is estimated to account for the highest market share, followed by Europe.
