Acetonitrile is the simplest of organic nitriles with the chemical formula CH3CN. It is also known as cyanomethane, methyl cyanide, ethyl nitrile, methanecarbonitrile, etc. It is a clear, colourless liquid with a sweet, ethereal odour and is an important intermediate for pharmaceutical and functional material chemicals. According to This latest report “Acetonitrile Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the global acetonitrile market reached a volume of 113 Kilotons in 2018 growing at a CAGR of 4.8% during 2011-2018. The report finds that the market is currently being driven by a heavy demand of acetonitrile in its end-use industries such as pharmaceuticals and HPLC applications. The report provides a comprehensive insight into the industry including its market breakup by region, market breakup by end-uses, value chain analysis, import and export trends, key players and market outlook. The report also gives an in-sight into the manufacturing process of acetonitrile, covering key success and risk factors for manufacturers, manufacturing process flow, the reactions involved, raw materials and their requirements, etc.

The report has analysed and segmented the global acetonitrile market on the basis of end-uses. Its biggest end-user is the pharmaceuticals industry accounting for the majority of the total global consumption. Acetonitrile is used to synthesise certain vitamins, amino acids, cortisone, etc. It is also used as a solvent in the production of insulin and antibiotics, tertiary-generation cephalosporins and for DNA synthesis. The second largest consumer of acetonitrile is in the HPCL applications (high-performance liquid chromatography). Acetonitrile is also used as a solvent in UV spectroscopy and polarography, in lithium batteries, for casting and moulding of plastic materials, for the extraction of fatty acids from animal and vegetable oils, in chemical laboratories for the detection of chemical residues and for spinning fibres.

The report has analysed the global key regions of the acetonitrile market and finds Asia-Pacific as the its biggest producer, accounting for more than half of the total global production. Asia-Pacific is followed by North America and Europe. In terms of consumption, China represents the biggest consumer of acetonitrile followed by North and South America, Europe and Japan. On the basis of import and export trends, the United States represents the largest global importer of acetonitrile accounting for the majority of the total global imports. The United States is followed by China, United Kingdom, Brazil, Germany and France.

The competitive landscape of the global acetonitrile market the report has found that INEOS represents the world's biggest producer of acetonitrile accounting for around a third of the total global production. INEOS is followed by Asahi Kesai, PetroChina, Formosa, Secco and Sinopec.
