Dimethylformamide Market Trends

ID: MRFR//1864-HCR | 140 Pages | Author: Anshula Mandaokar| July 2024

Dimethylformamide market Overview


Dimethylformamide Market Size was valued at USD 2.37 billion in 2023. The Dimethylformamide industry is projected to grow from USD 2.45 Billion in 2024 to USD 3.12 billion by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.05% during the forecast period (2024 - 2032).
Dimethylformamide is usually a colorless solution that could be mixed with water and also with other organic solutions. It is an organic element and is utilized as a common solvent for chemical actions. Dimethylformamide is used in the manufacture of acrylic fibers, synthetic leather, plastics, and several pesticides. The odorless and colorless properties of dimethylformamide raise its demand in different production and chemical industries.  Additionally, it is also commonly used as a major solvent for resins and polymers. Thus, with the increasing growth of the polymer industries over the globe, the need for dimethylformamide is anticipated to increase considerably throughout the forecast period. Furthermore, high purity and quality dimethylformamide have an attribute of selective solvency. Thus, it is also utilized to eliminate butadiene from hydrocarbons operations and gain or remove acetylene in different chemical techniques. In addition, due to the increasing usage of dimethylformamide in a huge range of applications like adhesive and industrial solvents, surface coatings, and others, is anticipated to drive the growth of the dimethylformamide international market. However, dimethylformamide is utilized across a huge range of applications, and they care about its health impact on animals and humans is forecasted to be a major restraining factor that hinders the growth of the international market. It is observed a drastic exposure to dimethylformamide could damage the organs especially the liver of animals and humans. Dimethylformamide is used largely in different sectors including chemicals, pharmaceuticals, electronics, and more. The drug industry used dimethylformamide as crystallization and dissolvable deduce from the compound's powerful dissolvability boundaries. 

Dimethylformamide Market Overview


Dimethylformamide is a colorless organic liquid with a formula (CH3)2NC(O)H and CAS number 68-12-2. Dimethylformamide is primarily used as an industrial solvent for various applications such as polymer fibers, films, and surface coatings. Dimethylformamide is synthesis by the reaction of methyl formate and dimethylamine or by the reaction of dimethylamine with carbon monoxide. Dimethylformamide is also used as a catalyst in a various chemical reaction and used in raw material in different chemical reactions owing to its miscibility with water and multiple compounds.


Robust growth of the chemical and pharmaceutical industry across the globe is expected to drive the demand of dimethylformamide for various applications substantially. Owing to the high solubility of organic and inorganic residuals, dimethylformamide is widely used as a cleaner for hot-dip tinned parts in the chemical industry. Moreover, dimethylformamide is also used across the electronics industry, owing to its high solvency. Thus, the strong growth of the electronics industry across the globe, particularly in North America and Asia-Pacific is likely to exert a positive impact on the growth of the global dimethylformamide market during the forecast period. Moreover, with the growing health concern and with the substantial investment in R&D and expansion of the pharmaceutical industry is expected to significantly drive the growth of dimethylformamide market during the forecast period.


Furthermore, it is also widely used as a solvent for polymers and resins. Hence with the robust growth of the polymer industry across the globe, the demand for dimethylformamide is expected to increase significantly during the forecast period. Also, high purity dimethylformamide has a characteristic of selective solvency. Hence it is also used in removing butadiene from hydrocarbons processes and removing or gaining acetylene in various chemical processes. Furthermore, owing to the increasing use of dimethylformamide in a wide range of application such as adhesive and surface coatings, industrial solvents, and others, is expected to propel the growth of the global market.


Though dimethylformamide is used across a wide range of applications, the concern about its potential health impact on human and animals is expected to be a key challenge for the growth of the global market. It has been observed an acute exposure to dimethylformamide can damage the liver in humans and animals.
