Dimethyl Carbonate Market was estimated to be around 822 million in 2020 and is anticipated to display a CAGR of around 6% over the forecast period (2021-2027). Dimethyl carbonate (DMC) is an important industrial chemical. It is also used as a chemical reagent, particularly for methylation and methoxy carbonylation reactions. It is used as an intermediate for making polycarbonate. Polycarbonate has wide applications in manufacturing compact disc, safety helmets, bullet-proof glass, car headlamp lenses, baby feeding bottles, roofing and glazing etc. due to its high strength, lightweight, good chemical and heat resistant. DMC is nontoxic to humans and does not negatively impact the environment, and is also quickly biodegradable, which makes it especially suitable for use as a chemical. Therefore, increasing demand for polycarbonates, battery electrolytes, reagents, and solvents would drive the market for DMC. However, use of highly toxic raw materials for DMC production would hamper the market growth of DMC.
