Global Chloromethanes (Methyl Chloride, Methylene Chloride, Chloroform, Carbon Tetrachloride) Market 2014-2018

DUBLIN, IRELAND -- (Marketwired) -- 07/25/14 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/vl9css/chloromethanes) has announced the addition of the "Chloromethanes Market by Type, Geography & by Application - Global Trends and Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.

The global chloromethanes market, along with its end products, has witnessed a stagnant growth in the past few years and this growth is estimated to continue in the coming years. High growth and demand for chloromethanes in emerging economies such as China, Japan, and India is the only driver as per the current market dynamics. Also, such demand is backed by newer and industrial applications. The upcoming safety regulations & innovative techniques developed for the use of chloromethanes will be a key influencing factor for the global market with the increased emphasis on different types and their applications.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest consumer of chloromethanes. Among all the countries in the region, China and India are important consumers of chloromethanes, with China held the largest share in the regional consumption in terms of volume of chloromethanes in 2012. The market size of chloromethanes in terms of volume is comparatively low in the ROW region, but is estimated to have a stable CAGR from 2013 to 2018.

Almost, 49.9% of the total chloromethanes demand in 2012 was for Methyl Chloride. This is due to its silicone manufacturing demand and its use in production of higher chloromethanes such as methylene chloride, chloroform, and carbon tetrachloride.

The Asia-Pacific and the European region are the most active markets in terms of strategic initiatives, owing to their emerging and mature market demands, respectively. The European market is highly regulated due to its growing concern on industrial toxic gas emissions, thus growth is torpid in the region. The superior end-user industry growth, amplified local manufacturing, and increased no. of domestic players in vertical market segments such as pharmaceuticals; foam manufacturing, chemical processing, and others in the Asia-Pacific region can be the important drivers in terms of consumption of the chloromethanes.

The important chloromethanes manufacturers include Dow Chemical (U.S.), AkzoNobel N.V. (The Netherlands), Occidental Chemical Corporation (U.S.), Ineos (Switzerland), Solvay S.A. (Belgium), Kem One (France), Shin-Etsu (Japan), Gujarat Alkalies & Chemicals Ltd. (India), and Tokuyama Corporation (Japan).

This report covers the chloromethanes market by key regions and important countries in each region. It also provides a detailed segmentation of the chloromethanes market on the basis of applications and types, along with its projection till 2018.
