Sodium Methylate Market To Reach USD 208.5 Million By 2026 | Reports And Data

17 April 2019

An increase in demand for sodium methylate in pharmaceutical industries is a significant factor estimated to drive the market demand.

Market Size – USD 173.6 million in 2018, Market Growth - CAGR of 2.3%, Market Trends – Growth in Bio-diesel Production

NEW YORK, April 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global Sodium Methylate market is expected to reach USD 208.5 Million by 2026, according to a new report by Reports and Data. Sodium methylate, also popularly known as sodium methoxide with the chemical formula of CH3ONa, may be produced as a result of an exothermic reaction between elemental sodium and methanol. Commercially, sodium methylate can be obtained either in solid or liquid (solution) form. Usually, sodium methylate is sold as a 25% to 30% solution in methanol for use in several applications, like the production of vitamin A1, B1, sulfadiazine, trimethoprim, and analytical agents among others. It is also used extensively as a catalyst in the production of bio-diesel.

An increase in demand for sodium methylate as a base, nucleophile, catalyst, reagent to carry out numerous chemical reactions in organic chemistry is anticipated to stimulate market growth. Further, a growth in the implementation of this chemical in the pharmaceutical industry in the production of vitamins, Sulfadoxine, Sulfadiazine, Trimethoprim, etc., is driving the market demand. Widespread application in grease, and synthetic detergents synthesis, and edible oil processing, is projected to drive the market growth in the upcoming years.  Also, the rise in global demand for biodiesel supported by favorable government initiatives in many countries is forecasted to push the market growth during the forecast period.

High cost of materials used in the production of sodium methylate might create hindrances in the growth of the market.

Further key findings from the report suggest

  • Powdered sodium methylate is expected to dominate the market with a growth rate of 2.4% during the forecast period. The market dominance of the powdered form is owing to its increasing applications in pharmaceuticals, perfumes, dyes, and organic intermediates. It is used extensively as a catalyst in the production of biodiesel. Sodium methylate in solution form is a versatile intermediate and finds application in a variety of organic syntheses.
