In line with the rising demand for dimethyl carbonate, in July 2019, Ube Industries announced that it will increase its production of basic chemical dimethyl carbonate by opening a new plant in the US. The production facility would approximately produce 50,000 tons of DMC as well as 20,000-30,000 tons of purified DMC annually.

In August 2016, Ube Industries opened its Osaka Research and Development Center at Sakai City in Osaka Prefecture (Japan). This expansion, in which the company invested USD 27 million (approximately), helped the company in its research and development endeavors.

Ube Industries, in March 2016, announced a joint venture with CNSG Anhui Hong Sifang Co., Ltd. (China) to license its technology to manufacture dimethyl carbonate. CNSG Anhui Hong Sifang Co., Ltd. will construct a manufacturing facility in Hefei, China, to produce DMC that will have an annual production capacity of about 100,000 tons. Additionally, it will establish a joint-venture to manufacture and market high purity DMC with an annual production capacity of 10,000 tons of DMC. The joint venture will receive a share of DMC from CNSG Anhui Hong Sifang and produce high-purity DMC. The joint venture will help Ube Industries market its products to manufacturers of electrolytes for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) in the Chinese market. Some products will be supplied to AET Electrolyte Technologies (Zhangjiagang) Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of the Ube Industries Group with electrolyte manufacturing operations in Zhangjiagang, Jiangsu Province, China.

Shandong Shida Shenghua Chemical Group Co. Ltd., in December 2017, announced that it signed a cooperation agreement with a new energy research institute on hydrogen fuel cells and lithium-ion battery business. This development is likely to boost their effort to manufacture high purity solvent.
