Global Nitromethane Market Outlook

The global nitromethane market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.20% in the forecast period between 2023 and 2028, driven by its increasing applications as a fuel additive and solvent in various industries.

 

Key Trends in the Market

Nitromethane is an organic compound that is considered to be the simplest form of an organic nitro compound. It is a polar, colourless, and oily liquid that is highly flammable and emits a strong odour. Nitromethane is frequently employed as a solvent in industrial settings, used to produce explosives and fuel. Since nitromethane is a material with a Hazard Class 3 designation, qualified individuals are required for its handling and storage.

 

  • Nitromethane is used as a monopropellant since it requires less oxygen for combustion. As it is a versatile material with several uses, nitromethane is employed in a wide range of industries, which expands its market. The nitromethane market is anticipated to be driven by its expanding application in the pharmaceutical and agricultural sectors, along with the automotive industry.
  • In dry cleaning, degreasing processes, and semiconductor processing, nitromethane is used to stabilise chlorinated solvents. It is also used as a dissolving agent or solvent for acrylate monomers, which are then used to make adhesives. During the projected period, this factor is likely to fuel the global market for nitromethane.
  • The most basic organic nitro chemical, nitromethane is a polar liquid that is largely utilised as a solvent in a range of industrial applications, including extractions, as a reaction medium, and as a cleaning solvent. It is frequently employed in the production of medications, insecticides, explosives, fibres, and coatings as an intermediate in organic synthesis.

 

Global Nitromethane Market Analysis

Based on application, the market is segmented into explosive, chemical intermediate, solvent, and fuel and fuel additives, among others. The regional markets for nitromethane can be divided into North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

 

The comprehensive EMR report provides an in-depth assessment of the market based on the Porter's five forces model along with giving a SWOT analysis. The report gives a detailed analysis of the following key players in the global nitromethane market, covering their competitive landscape and latest developments like mergers, acquisitions, investments, and expansion plans.

  • Angus Chemical Company
  • Wujiang Bolin Industry Co., Ltd.
  • Vizag Chemical International
  • Others

 

Market Share by Application

As nitromethane burns more slowly than gasoline, it is often utilised as a fuel additive in a variety of motorsports and pastimes, such as Top Fuel drag racing and miniature internal combustion engines in radio-controlled and free-flight model aircrafts. Methanol is often used to dilute nitromethane before usage. The primary benefit of nitromethane is that it is less energetic than gasoline and generates significantly more power from each explosion inside the engine. Compared to gasoline, it requires a substantially smaller volume of air for combustion, allowing more nitromethane fuel to be burned with each engine stroke, resulting in high engine output. This is aiding the nitromethane market growth. Similar to trinitrotoluene (TNT), nitromethane is also used as a controlled explosive in a variety of sectors.

 

Market Share by Region

Asia Pacific is anticipated to hold a significant market share for nitromethane during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the expansion of the automobile sector and rising regional demand for pharmaceutical goods. China is a leading manufacturer of chemicals, paints, coatings, and pharmaceuticals in the Asia Pacific. In the forecast period, this factor is anticipated to drive the nitromethane market in the region. Asia Pacific is projected to be a significant region for nitromethane due to the growing need for medicinal, chemical, and agricultural products.

 

In the coming years, the nitromethane market will likely be particularly lucrative in Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. Several businesses have industrial centres in these nations. Opportunities in the Latin America region for nitromethane during the forecast period are likely to result from the economic growth of these nations.

 

Competitive Landscape

Linyi Yuanbo Chemical Co., Ltd., a rapidly expanding high-tech chemical company, was founded in 2006 and specialises in the production and distribution of fine chemicals and pharmaceutical raw materials. The company currently has a supply capacity of 100,000 tonnes per year for Dimethyl suffate, while nitromethane production capacity is of 6,000 tonnes per year.

Nitromethane is an oily, colourless liquid with a faintly unpleasant or fruity smell. It is highly flammable due to which precautions need to be taken during handling.

Fuel and nitro don't mix; instead, they separate, with the fuel rising to the top. However, nitropropane (C3H7NO2) can be blended with gas, and even 10% nitropropane in gas can result in modest power gains.

Using nitromethane as a fuel in a vehicle not designed to be compatible with the material can result in severely damaging the engine of the vehicle.

Nitromethane is considered toxic, and high level exposure can result in difficulty breathing and collapse, even resulting in fatalities.
