ID: MRFR/CnM/5978-HCR | February 2021 | Region: Global | 140 pages

Market Overview: Global MethaneSulfonic Acid Market is expected to register around 5.8% CAGR during the review period.  Methane sulfonic acid, a colorless liquid organic compound, is being widely used as a catalyst in organic reactions including esterification, condensation, and alkylation owing to less corrosiveness, solubility in organic solvents and non-volatility. The product is used in numerous applications such as pharmaceuticals, electronics, industrial cleaning, electroplating, and chemical & biofuel synthesis due to its non-oxidizing, solubility, odorless, low carbon content, and biodegradability properties.

The global demand for methane sulfonic acid is driven by increasing use in esterification mainly in biofuel, plasticizers, and acrylates. Growing demand for biofuel in numerous applications including transportation, energy generation, chargeable electronics, and lubricants is expected to drive the growth of esterification market and thus, methane sulfonic acid. Increasing use of plasticizers in flexible packaging applications is expected to add to the growth of the methane sulfonic acid market.


Methane sulfonic acid is being increasingly used as an electrolyte for electrochemical applications over other acid electrolytes due to low carbon content which reduces its adverse impact on environment. Rising demand for electroplating in metal fabrication is witnessed to drive the growth of the methane sulfonic acid market at a significant rate.


The consumption of methane sulfonic acid is increasing in pharmaceuticals industry in manufacturing of active pharmaceutical ingredients such as telmisartan and eprosartan. Increased spending on healthcare is driving the pharmaceuticals industry, which, is likely to fuel the demand for methane sulfonic acid.


In 2018, one of the key market players, BASF proposed to expand production capacity of methane sulfonic acid at its manufacturing site located in Ludwigshafen, Germany to meet the growing demand in numerous applications in Asia-pacific region. Additionally, appropriate availability of methane sulfonic acid in market is likely to increase its use in various applications, which, is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the players operating in the global methane sulfonic acid market during the forecast period.  However, high cost associated with the product may hamper the market growth.
