Methylene Chloride Market Size Forecast to Reach $1161.3 Million by 2025
"Rise in Adoption of Methylene Chloride for Use in Newer Industrial Verticals, and Developing Economies, Would Create New Prospects for the Growth of the Global Methylene Chloride Market.", 4/12/2021 - Methylene Chloride Market size is forecast to reach $1161.3 million by 2025, after growing at a CAGR of 4.1% during 2020-2025. Globally, rising demand for methylene chloride as solvents from applications such as paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants and development in demand from fluorocarbons, along with rising demand for HFC-32 are the prime growth factors of global methylene chloride market. In addition, rise in adoption of methylene chloride for use in newer industrial verticals, and developing economies, would create new prospects for the growth of the global methylene chloride industry in the forecast period.

Key Takeaways

Increasing use of methylene chloride as an extraction solvent in the food & beverage manufacturing industry is estimated to drive the methylene chloride market over the forecast period.

Strict government restrictions imposed by the methylene chloride industry as a possible carcinogenic chemical is expected to obscure demand expansion in the next few years.

Also, increasing use of ethyl lactate as an alternative for organic solvents such as methylene chloride owing to the non-toxic and biodegradable properties of ethyl lactate derived from renewable carbohydrates will create hurdles for the methylene chloride market in the forecast period.

Due to COVID-19 palindrome, some of the supply chain operations are disrupted as the non-availability of migrant labor is interrupting certain activities, particularly in countries where methylene chloride is majorly used.
