Global Dimethyl Ether (DME) Market: forecast to 2027


Global Dimethyl Ether (DME) Market: Overview
Dimethyl Ether is commonly referred as DME. It is a downstream derivative of methanol. DME can be acquired from fossil fuel resources like natural gas and coal as well as bio based feedstock like forest waste, agricultural waste, black liquor and municipal waste. Favorable chemical and physical characteristics of DME make it a feasible option for a number of applications. DME’s application as blending chemical in LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) is the most important one. Due to similar properties of DME and LPG, precise proportion blend of the two chemicals does not need major change in logistical operations and existing equipment, which were previously used for LPG alone.
Global Dimethyl Ether (DME) Market: Market Growth Influencer
Dimethyl ether (DME) is a rising petrochemical, which is mostly employed for fuel application and as an aerosol propellant. Presently, the increase in demand of Dimethyl ether is driven by increasing LPG deficits of regions which are already short of oil & gas deposits. In Asia-Pacific Rich coal deposits and stringent emission norms are the major factors, which are anticipated to push the DME market in future. Increasing reliance on LPG imports, increasing environmental concerns, multi source and multi application product are the major driving factors. Under capacity of DME in various potential countries and potential market for transport and power are the major opportunities for Global Dimethyl Ether (DME) Market. Countries with high demand prospective and minor production capacities are always considered as the best opportunity for market players in business segment. Presently, LPG blending is the major application of DME in LPG deficit countries but none of them except China have enough capacities to fulfill their demand for DME. As there are number of projects have been proposed in several countries such as India, Iran, Indonesia etc., but none of them are prepared till date. The deficit of the capacity will be still there even if the proposed projects become operational in the near future. There are some factors existing in the Global Dimethyl Ether (DME) Market which restrict the growth. The most important factor is the requirement of alteration in existing and presented infrastructure.
