The global demand for Methylene Chloride Market is presumed to reach the valuation of nearly USD XX MN by 2026 from USD XX MN in 2019 with a CAGR of XX% under the study period of 2020 - 2026.
Methylene chloride also called as dichloromethane (DCM) is a colorless solvent with a mild, sweet odor. It is an organochlorine compound with the formula CH2CL2. It can be produced by reacting the chlorine gas in distillation process. It cannot be directly found naturally in the environment. It finds its applications in various industries which include paints & coatings industry, polyurethane foams, metal cleaning, as a blowing agent, and is used to decaffeinate tea & coffee. As a result of methylene chloride’s powerful solvent action and stability, it is used in the extraction of heat sensitive substances such as butter, caffeine, hops, cocoa, and fats. Dichloromethane is used as a real solvent in the extraction of various pharmaceutical compounds and in the production of many antibiotics and vitamins.
The market is growing at a rapid pace attributed to the increase in applications as a solvent in various industries which includes adhesives & sealants, pharmaceuticals, paints & coatings, aerosols, textiles, among others. Methylene chloride is majorly used in paint stripper and degreasers. It offers the risk of many disorders and abnormalities and exposure may occur by contact with skin or inhalation. Additionally it also gives chloroform like effect. These health hazards acts as restraints for the growth of the market. Furthermore, rising demand for fluorocarbons may offer ample opportunities for the methylene chloride market during the forecast period.
