Press Release

Acetonitrile Market Size Worth US$ 482.9 Mn by 2027 | CAGR: 5.4%

The study undertaken by Astute Analytica foresees a growth in revenue of the Global Acetonitrile Market from US$ 353 Mn in 2021 to US$ 482.9 Mn by 2027. The market is estimated to register a growth at a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period 2022-2027. In terms of volume, the market is estimated to grow from 1,26,135.8 tons in 2021 to 1,76,380.6 tons by 2027, registering a CAGR of 5.7% during 2022-2027. The market growth is attributed to factors such as rising demand from the pharmaceutical industry, high consumption in production of epoxy hardeners and agrochemicals, and extensive adoption as organic solvent in HPLC applications. Acetonitrile is used to extract fatty acids and animal and vegetable oils. It is also used in petrochemical industries for extractive distillation and as a solvent for spinning synthetic fiber and in casting and molding plastics. In the laboratory, acetonitrile is used in high-performance liquid chromatographic HPLC analysis and as a solvent for DNA synthesis and peptide sequencing. Furthermore, acetonitrile finds extensive application in batteries, particularly lithium-ion batteries, to enable next-generation high-power and energy-density lithium-ion batteries, which provides extraordinarily high-ionic conductivity. However, availability of substitutes like Prionil and the health concerns associated with acetonitrile poses a challenge to the Global Acetonitrile Market.

Segmental Analysis

Solvent segment leads the Global Acetonitrile Market in 2021

The solvent segment dominated the Global Acetonitrile Market in 2021. Growing demand for solvents in high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) on account of its high dipole moment and dielectric propels the growth of the solvent segment in the global market. The demand for derivatives is expected to grow at the highest CAGR over the coming years. Derivatives are used extensively to produce sulfa pyrimidine and Vitamin B1.

99.99% purity level has the fastest CAGR during the forecast period in terms of grade

The 99.99% purity segment is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period. The growth of the segment is primarily as it provides additional purity for pharmaceutical and analytical industry applications coupled with the growing product demand from end-use industries. This, in turn, is leading to its increasing adoption across the globe.

Pharmaceutical Industry has the fastest CAGR during the forecast period

Pharmaceutical industry accounts for the major share in 2021 and is estimated to have the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. The segmental growth of the market is accredited to its application as a key solvent in the manufacturing of antibiotics due to its physical and chemical properties such as low freezing and boiling point and low viscosity. It also has low toxicity due to which it is regarded as safe over other solvents such as dichloromethane.
