The chloromethanes market, along with its end products, has witnessed a stagnant growth in the past few years and it is expected to be the same in the coming years, especially in North American and European regions. Leading manufacturers and their strategies to balance current supply-demand issues, regulations across the different regions, and newer applications development across the vertical industries will be the key influencing factors in the chloromethanes market. The industry is expected to the raise emphasis on different types and applications of chloromethanes, which is expected to significantly drive the consumption in the next five years.

The market is experiencing high growth in Asia-Pacific region due to minimal regulations and their mounting industrial growth in the end-user industry. The large population demands, increased number of end-users, and improving infrastructure can be other parameters for the rising consumption of chloromethanes. The region is further expected to show an improved growth in the future, mainly due to high growth potential of the pharmaceuticals, foam blowing agent, and chemical intermediates industries in developing countries such as China, India, South East Asia, and Japan. The Asia-Pacific region accounted for more than 45% of the global market consumption share in 2012.

The most important type of chloromethanes market is methyl chloride, it held more than half of the overall demand in terms of consumption in 2012. It is largely used in the production of higher chloromethanes such as chloroform, methylene chloride, and carbon tetrachloride. Also, the silicone manufacturing industry growth is expected to grow, which is a key consumer application segment of methyl chloride.

This study basically aims to estimate the global market of chloromethanes for 2012 and to project the expected demand of the same by 2018. This market research study provides a detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the global market. The various secondary sources such as industry journals, directories, and other paid databases have been used to identify and collect information useful for this extensive commercial study of the chloromethanes market. The primary sources–experts from related industries and suppliers–have been interviewed to obtain and verify critical information as well as to assess the future prospects of chloromethanes.

Chloromethanes: 3,323 kilotons of market volume by 2018 signifying a firm annualized growth rate of over 3.4%.

The global chloromethanes market, along with its end products, has witnessed a stagnant growth in the past few years and this growth is estimated to continue in the coming years. High growth and demand for chloromethanes in emerging economies such as China, Japan, and India is the only driver as per the current market dynamics. Also, such demand is backed by newer and industrial applications. The upcoming safety regulations & innovative techniques developed for the use of chloromethanes will be a key influencing factor for the global market with the increased emphasis on different types and their applications.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest consumer of chloromethanes. Among all the countries in the region, China and India are important consumers of chloromethanes, with China held the largest share in the regional consumption in terms of volume of chloromethanes in 2012. The market size of chloromethanes in terms of volume is comparatively low in the ROW region, but is estimated to have a stable CAGR from 2013 to 2018.

Almost, 49.9% of the total chloromethanes demand in 2012 was for Methyl Chloride. This is due to its silicone manufacturing demand and its use in production of higher chloromethanes such as methylene chloride, chloroform, and carbon tetrachloride.

The Asia-Pacific and the European region are the most active markets in terms of strategic initiatives, owing to their emerging and mature market demands, respectively. The European market is highly regulated due to its growing concern on industrial toxic gas emissions, thus growth is torpid in the region. The superior end-user industry growth, amplified local manufacturing, and increased no. of domestic players in vertical market segments such as pharmaceuticals; foam manufacturing, chemical processing, and others in the Asia-Pacific region can be the important drivers in terms of consumption of the chloromethanes.

The important chloromethanes manufacturers include Dow Chemical (U.S.), AkzoNobel N.V. (The Netherlands), Occidental Chemical Corporation (U.S.), Ineos (Switzerland), Solvay S.A. (Belgium), Kem One (France), Shin-Etsu (Japan), Gujarat Alkalies & Chemicals Ltd. (India), and Tokuyama Corporation (Japan).
