Global Dimethyl Ether Market Size, Share, Analysis, Trends, Growth: By Raw Material: Coal, Natural Gas, Methanol, Bio-Based, Others; By Application: LPG Blending, Aerosol Propellant, Fuel, Chemical Feedstock, Others; Regional Analysis; Value Chain Analysis; Competitive Landscape; Key Trends and Developments in the Market; 2022-2027

Global Dimethyl Ether Market Outlook

The global dimethyl ether market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 9.8% during 2022-2027. Dimethyl ether is a colourless gas that has a faded odour. It is transported as liquid gas under its vapour pressure. It is readily flammable. Dimethyl ether is usually employed as fuel, solvent, refrigerant and aerosol propellant; it is widely used in the chemical industry.

 

Dimethyl ether has been commonly used as an environmentally-friendly, non-toxic aerosol propellant, and to mix with propane. It can be manufactured domestically from different feedstocks, such as food waste, dairy biogas, and industrial process waste streams. Asia, Europe and North America are projected to be significant markets. 

 

Global Market Likely to be Driven by Applications Across Sectors and Advantageous Fuel Properties

There are many fuel properties of dimethyl ether that render it fit for use in diesel engines. Cetane number of the compound is very high; the number indicates the fuel's combustibility in compression ignition engines. Energy efficiency and power ratings of dimethyl ether and diesel engines are practically same. As it does not carry carbon-to-carbon bonds, dimethyl ether, if used as a diesel alternative, could practically do away with particulate emissions and possibly remove the need for expensive diesel particulate filters.

 

Efforts are being made to produce dimethyl ether sustainably from biogenic methane or biomass obtained from cellulose or lignin. Dimethyl ether is employed to manufacture other smaller molecules like acetic acid or dimethyl sulphate. It is also used as a spray-can propellant and a refrigerant in place of chlorofluorocarbons. Dimethyl ether has been suggested as a cleaner-burning fuel than hydrocarbons.

 

Various Applications of Dimethyl Ether Expected to Boost Market Growth

Dimethyl ether has many applications; it is used as solvent, refrigerant, extraction agent, multi-purpose fuel, propellant for aerosol products (such as deodorants, air fresheners and perfumes), fuel for welding cutting and brazing, (co-)blowing agent for foam, chemical reaction medium, etc. Such a variety of applications is expected to stimulate the global dimethyl ether market.

 

Focus on Decarbonising Transportation Likely to Boost Market Growth

There is increasing focus on decarbonisation of transport across the world. For example, in 2021, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO) granted over $4 million to fund testing of new applications of dimethyl ether as a low-carbon replacement to fossil fuels. Oberon Fuels was a supporting partner. Such efforts are expected to stimulate the global dimethyl ether market.

 

Efforts Towards Developing Sustainable Dimethyl Ether Expected to Stimulate Market Growth

In 2021, SHV Energy and KEW Technology announced a joint venture (Circular Fuels Ltd.) to advance renewable dimethyl ether manufacturing plants. The strategic association sought to exhibit the feasibility of transforming renewable and recycled carbon feedstock into renewable liquid gas. Such advancements are likely to drive the global dimethyl ether market.
