Global Acetonitrile Market is anticipated to witness robust growth in the forecast period, 2024-2028. The global acetonitrile market is expanding due to continuous demand from different end-user industries, such as pharmaceuticals, specialty chemicals, electronics, HPLC applications, and biotechnological applications. Acetonitrile is a principal component in the pharmaceutical industry. Queen's University Belfast states that the pharmaceutical industry captures 70% of the global acetonitrile market. An increase in acetonitrile demand is due to various factors, such as its excellent solvation ability and properties like low freezing, boiling points, and toxicity.

Acetonitrile's use in liquid chromatography analyses is rising because of its exceptional physicochemical properties for separation and detection. However, much junk material is generated from fluid chromatography analysis using acetonitrile. Therefore, alternative substitutes like acetone and Ethyl Lactate are also entering the market due to their lesser carbon footprint and similar physicochemical properties as acetonitrile.

Additionally, acetonitrile use in the petrochemical industry further stimulates market growth. It is fully miscible in water and can diffuse completely with complex compounds like carbon tetrachloride, chloroform, acetone, ether, ethanol, and ethylene chloride. Therefore, it is used to separate C4-hydrocarbons and olefin-diolefin mixtures. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), petrochemicals will account for over a third of the growth in oil demand by 2030. Further, petrochemicals will consume 56 billion cubic meters of natural gas by 2030, nearly equal to half of Canada’s total gas consumption.

Increasing Demand from Various End-User Industries

Due to its remarkable physical and chemical qualities, including low viscosity and low freezing/boiling point, acetonitrile finds significant application in the pharmaceutical sector as a critical solvent in manufacturing antibiotics and drug recrystallization. One of the primary factors driving the global acetonitrile market is the increasing use of acetonitrile in pharmaceutical and analytical sector applications. As per the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA), In 2021, North America accounted for 49.1% of world pharmaceutical sales compared with 23.4% for Europe. In addition, in 2020, the pharmaceutical industry invested more than USD 39,600 million in R&D in Europe. All these factors are propelling the growth of the market.

Mergers & Acquisitions

  • Brenntag acquired Matrix Chemical, LLC, a North American solvent distributor and the largest acetone distributor in North America, in 2021. Most of the customer base is in countries such as the United States and Canada. These items are utilized in various industries, including personal care, adhesives, and paint & coatings.

Recent Development’s

  • Recently, scientists and researchers have developed a new process to produce acetonitrile from renewable sources that are sustainable and eco-friendly for the environment. Acetonitrile is made through ethanol ammoxidation and utilizes a lesser amount of ammonia. Ethanol is used as a reactant, as it is easily accessible from the fermentation process and can be used without further purification requirements.
