Sodium Methylate Market Overview

As per the MRFR market analysis, it was noted that the sodium methylate industry occupies a sodium methylate market value of USD 354.7 million during the forecast period of 2018. The market was expected to grow at a CAGR of 4% during the market forecast period starting in 2018. The market of sodium methylate is expected to attain success by anticipated exponential growth where the catalyst is used for various purposes.


The outbreak of COVID has affected nationwide people. It has led to flight cancellations, travel bans, quarantining oneself, closure of restaurants, and limitations of all indoor activities. COVID  has slowed down the supplied chain network. An instability in stock price was marked which disrupted the company morally. Due to COVID, fear rose among the population which made their future insecure. An agricultural shutdown of COVID was marked and the supply of sodium methylate was being disrupted. Unavailability of raw materials was marked which hampered the quality of the production units. Industrial disturbance also took place which in fact disrupted the full-scale operations. The shortage of raw materials led to a spike in the price of raw materials. This disruption in the supply chain will take many days to recover. This closure of the industry has led to rising shipping prices. Storage and inventory measures have been taken against COVID. The government has imposed certain guidelines for the safety of the people and the nation.

Driversas the rise in use of sodium methylate is used in widespread amounts for the processing of biodiesel for the automobile industry and many more are the factors that rise up the sodium methylate market size. The increase in demand and the use of sodium methylate in the pharma sector drive up the sodium methylate market growth. Decarbonization of the emissions from automotive industries along with the change in the climate of Paris and the awareness about global warming pushes up the demand for the use of biofuel.OpportunitiesHigh growth in demand of sodium methoxide as a foundation, nucleophilic, as a catalyst, and as a reagent for carrying out the number of chemical reactions increases the opportunities for the expansion of sodium methylate market growth. The use of sodium methylate for the manufacturing of vitamins, trimethoprim, sulphadoxine, and sulfadiazine, and for other pharma purposes brings lucrative opportunities for the enhancement of the business. Producing edible oil, grease, and manufacturing synthetic detergents steers up the market growth. Synthesizing grease and synthetic detergents and manufacturing edible oil propels up the demand and rises up the development in the upcoming years.ChallengesThe uncertainty in the ups and downs in the prices of raw materials for the manufacturing of sodium methylate brings a challenging factor in the reformation of sodium methylate market value and sodium methylate market size.Cumulative growthThe rise in the production potential of sodium methylate biodiesel by the efforts of governments in various emerging countries has increased the growth of the market. The healthy growth of biodiesel processing capability has raised the demand for sodium methylate market value. The Discovery of various alternatives for raw materials for the presence of mercury would likely expand the business growth.RestraintsThe intensification of the rivalry for the manufacture of sodium methylate raw materials in this upcoming year will lead to a reduction in the price of sodium methylate products in the near future. The profit margin of the production unit will vary. These are the factors that hinder the growth of the business sector. The hard presence of mercury in the solution of sodium results in contamination of the product and affects the activity of catalysis of sodium methylate, hindering the market growth.


By typeAs per the sodium methylate market trends, the market is classified into the liquid segment and solid segment.
