Market Overview

Methylene chloride or dichloromethane (DCM) is an organic compound having the formulae CH2Cl2. The compound is a colourless, volatile, neutral liquid with a moderately sweet aroma that is used as a solvent. Methylene chloride is immiscible in water; however, it dissolves easily with organic solvents. The global methylene chloride market is expected to have a significant growth owing to its better solvency power to most organic chemicals and materials. It emits highly toxic fumes of phosgene when subjected to heat decomposition. The compound should be handled and stored carefully, as exposure to methylene chloride may cause hazardous health problems.

The predominant method of manufacturing methylene chloride employs as a first step for the reaction of hydrogen chloride and methanol to give methyl chloride. Excess methyl chloride is then mixed with chlorine, which reacts to give methylene chloride, chloroform and carbon tetrachloride as co-products.

Methylene chloride is extensively used in various industrial fields because of their unique properties such as high solvency power, no ozone depletion potential (ODP), biologically degradable in sewage purification plants, easily removable, non-flammable, evenly boiling mono-component, and negligible effect on global warming or tropospheric smog creation. Naturally, it can be found in oceans as microalgae, volcanoes and wetlands; however, the majority of methylene chloride found in environment is the result of industrial emission. It emits highly toxic fumes of phosgene when heated to decomposition. Additionally, inhalation exposure to methylene chloride irritates the nose and throat, and affects the central nervous system. Methylene chloride is a possible mutagen and is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen.

Market Dynamics

The global methylene chloride market is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period (2016 - 2022). The factors driving the growth of the global market include increasing use of solvent in end-use industries such as pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, paint and varnishes, metal cleaning and others, high demand from developing nations, and increasing demand in paints and varnishes industry. Based on application, pharmaceutical industry is the largest segment in the global market for methylene chloride. Paints and varnishes is expected to be the fastest growing applications segment in the global methylene chloride market.

Trends

The key trend observed in the methylene chloride market is the increasing demand in niche engineering industries which is further boosting the growth of methylene chloride. With the advent of technology, various industries are investing heavily in research and development (R&D) activities to find newer and innovative processes that can utilize methylene chloride for manufacturing various end-products that would add up value to their product chain. This has led to the evolution and distinctiveness in the field of engineering, pharmaceutical sectors and healthcare services. In the recent years, several industrial sectors have been using technology to reduce the cost, conduct research and apply more fruitful ways to meet consumer demand.

Growth Drivers

The paints and varnishes industry is expected to register substantial growth during the forecast period, thus boosting the demand for methylene chloride. Paints and varnishes industries use methylene chloride for formulating various paint stripper and powder coating removal chemicals. With the growth of paints and varnishes industry, the demand for methylene chloride is also increasing rapidly. Moreover, methylene chloride is used in the manufacturing process of various paint strippers, which are used to remove polyester powder coatings from aluminium and steel components in the construction and automotive industries.

Among the various applications, the pharmaceuticals safety and decorative film segment have emerged as the major contributor in the global methylene chloride market.

Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth in the global methylene chloride market during the forecast period. The increasing population, growth of infrastructure along with end-use industry has accelerated the demand of methylene chloride in the region. China accounts for the largest demand in the region followed by India and Pakistan. India would register the fastest growth in the Asia-Pacific methylene chloride market during the forecast period. Other countries such as Japan, South Korea and some nations in South-East Asia are expected to exhibit a stable growth in the methylene chloride market. Improved health services and high demand from paints and varnishes industry fuel the demand for methylene chloride in the market during the forecast period. The stringent environmental regulations across Europe and North America act as an important factor influencing the growth of the methylene chloride market of these regions. Additionally, economic slowdown in European Union and North America affects the economy of other developed countries, which is a major factor for commercial success of end-use industry; however, the U.K. has the highest demand of methylene chloride and countries such as France, Germany, Italy and Netherlands are expected to increase their demand for methylene chloride in the upcoming years. North America has the third largest demand for methylene chloride, owing to its large base of coating and adhesive industries. Africa and Middle-East dominate the demand for methylene chloride in the Rest of the world (RoW) region.
