Global Methyl Mercaptan Market to Reach USD 2.07 Billion by 2026, Aided by the Growing Demand from Application Sectors

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Methyl Mercaptan Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the global market for methyl mercaptan size was around USD 1.5 billion in 2020. The industry is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% between 2021 and 2026 to attain a value of USD 2.07 billion by 2026.

The global methyl mercaptan industry is being aided by the growing demand for the product from various application sectors. As the methyl mercaptan industry is less capital intensive, and its production does not require the use of any major technology, the market is highly competitive. The increased penetration of leading companies in the United States has significantly contributed to the industry growth in the North America region, thus, aiding the overall market. Some of the major companies in the industry include Arkema S.A. (OTCMKTS: ARKAY) and Chevron Phillips Chemical Company.
The growing mergers and acquisitions by the major players are expected to further aid the market growth. In July 2021, Arkema announced that the company had acquired Fixatti, a company focusing on high-performance thermobonding adhesive technology, thus, expanding its business and global reach. Further, the growing demand for petrochemicals will also boost the sales of methyl mercaptan as it is used as a fuel additive as well as a gas odorant for gases like natural gas, and others. In July 2020, Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC and Qatar Petroleum signed an agreement to jointly develop the U.S. Gulf Coast petrochemical project, which is worth USD 8 billion. Such developments are expected to positively impact the global methyl mercaptan industry over the forecast period.
