Global Chloromethanes Market, By Type (Methyl Chloride, Methylene Chloride, Chloroform, Carbon Tetra

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1958463


Growing demand for chloromethane from the silicone industry is expected to drive the growth of Chloromethane Market during the forecast period. This has resulted some of the key developments by companies operating in the market to consolidate their market positions and look for further niche opportunities.

Chloromethane is most widely used in silicon polymer production as well as butyl rubber. The growing chloromethane utility in petroleum refining has also positively impacted the market. Chloromethane, also known as methyl chloride is produced from sulfuric acid, sodium chloride, and methanol mixture. It is an extremely flammable and colorless gas, hence widely used as a chlorinating and methylating agent in organic chemistry.

Segment Analysis

The global chloromethane market is segmented on the basis of its type.

On the basis of type, it is segmented into methyl chloride, chloroform, methylene chloride, and carbon tetrachloride. Methyl chloride is a majorly used product owing to its extensive usage as immediate feedstock for methylene chloride, carbon tetrachloride, and chloroform production. Chloroform which is also known by trichloromethane has witnessed a significant rise in its demand as a result of its comprehensive s such as an early anesthetic in not only dentistry & surgery, in organic separation & synthesis, but also as a precursor in teflon production. Carbon tetrachloride segment has also seen a brisk rise in its growth owing to its potential use as hepatotoxin in scientific research to evaluate liver protective agents.
