Methylal Market To Reach USD 329.8 Million By 2032 Report By DataHorizzon Research


Ongoing research is supplementing the development of the methylal industry, leading to promising growth prospects.

Fort Collins, Colorado, Nov. 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to DataHorizzon Research, The Methylal Market size was valued at USD 255.9 Million in 2022 and is expected to reach a market size of USD 329.8 Million by 2032 at a CAGR of 2.5%.

Methylal, or dimethoxymethane, is a versatile chemical compound produced from methanol oxidation or by combining formaldehyde and methanol. It is in high demand globally due to its wide range of applications in various industries. Specifically, it is used as a blowing agent for PU foams in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries, where its properties, such as good solubility, low boiling point, and anti-carcinogenic effects, are highly valued.


Despite the expected increase in the usage of fossil fuels by 1.3% by 2040 worldwide, methylal remains a crucial diesel additive and an industrial solvent that can be used as a base for protective coatings. Moreover, the recent emergence of methylal as an automotive fuel and diesel modification additive, as well as its adoption in new industrial verticals, presents new growth opportunities for the methylal market during the forecast period.

The PU foam industry is increasingly focusing on the construction and sports applications of the product. The polymer’s penetration in the industry has grown substantially due to the popularity of sealants derived from PU bases, which possess favorable properties for preventing air and water leakage. Furthermore, sports players are increasingly using tennis grips and garments made from polyurethane. The increased usage of this polymer in various industries is expected to benefit blowing agents such as methylal.
