The Global Acetonitrile Market Stood at Approximately 150 Thousand Tonnes in 2021 and is Expected to Grow at a Steady CAGR of 3.79% During the Forecast Period Until 2030

The global Acetonitrile market stood at approximately 150 thousand tonnes in 2021 and is expected to grow at a steady CAGR of 3.79% during the forecast period until 2030. Usage of Acetonitrile as a solvent in the pharmaceutical items has grown enormously in the recent years.

Acetonitrile is a chemical compound with formula CH₃CN. It is colorless, flammable, and volatile chemical. It is the most basic organic nitrile which is toxic in nature. This chemical is compatible with the majority of organic solvents. It is produced as a byproduct of the production of acrylonitrile. Although, Ammoxidation process is the most commonly employed process for synthesizing Acetonitrile. Acetonitrile is employed as a polar aprotic solvent in the purification of butadiene. It is used to manufacture pesticides as well. Its applications include for manufacturing pharmaceuticals, plastics casting and molding, fragrance, vegetable and animal oil fatty acid extraction, and other industries.

The primary market driver of the global Acetonitrile market industry is the Pharmaceutical industry. The main end-use for acetonitrile is in the pharmaceutical industry, which employs it as a reagent, reaction solution, or extraction liquid. Cortisone, Vitamins A and B, carbonate medicines, and certain amino acids are synthesized using acetonitrile as a precursor. This industry to create a huge demand of Acetonitrile in the forecast period. Additionally, the high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) also is an active consumer of Acetonitrile wherein this chemical is employed as a mobile phase, contributing to the growing demand of Acetonitrile in the forecast period. Furthermore, its application for purification of butadiene also adds to the market expansion. The global Acetonitrile market is anticipated to reach approximately 250 thousand tonnes by 2030.

Based on grade, the Acetonitrile market is segregated into Chemical grade/Reagent grade and HPLC grade. Among these, the first grade is leading the market with a consumption of nearly 70% of net market in 2021.
