Global Dichloroethane (DCE) Market, By Type (1,1- Dichloroethane, 1,2- Dichloroethane), By Applicati

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1913813


The high growth of chemical intermediate, agrochemicals, and others in the emerging regions is expected to drive the demand of Dichloroethane (DCE) Market during the forecast period.  Some of the major application industries in the Dichloroethane (DCE)market have been witnessing strong growth in emerging regions such as the Asia Pacific and the Middle East.

The dichloroethane (DCE) is a colorless chlorinated hydrocarbon with a chloroform-like odor. DCE is a clear liquid with an amine odor. It is manufactured by one of two processes, namely, direct chlorination using pure chlorine, and ethylene or oxychlorination wherein ethylene reacts with chlorine in hydrogen chloride. It is majorly used as a chemical intermediate in the production of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) and as a solvent in a number of chemical processes. It is also used as a raw material for ethyleneamines, tri- and tetrachloroethylene. Some other applications of DCE include the production of adhesives, plastics, and synthetic fibers.

Segment Insights

There is an increasing demand for PVC products in the growing construction industry. PVC is used in a wide range of industries such as automotive, chemical, food processing, and construction. The increasing consumption of PVC from these industries is driving the demand for PVC, thereby fueling the demand for DCE.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth: 

  • Increasing demand for PVC products
  • Growing construction industry
