2016-2020 Methane Sulfonic Acid Market Outlook Compared to 2021-2031 Forecast

Demand for methane sulfonic acid grew at 2.5% CAGR between 2016 and 2020. Sales prospects were dampened in 2020 due to the outbreak of COVID-19, which reduced methane sulfonic acid demand from several industries. However, in the coming years the methane sulfonic acid market is expected to bounce back as demand increases in the electronics and pharmaceutical sectors.

Increasing use of methane sulfonic acid in electroplating is projected to propel sales at 5.1% CAGR over the forecast period, from 2021 to 2031. Significant growth in the electroplating, pharmaceuticals, and chemical-biodiesel production has positioned East Asia, especially in China, as a key consumer of methane sulfonic acid.

Will Demand from Electroplating and Pharmaceutical Segments Continue Driving Methane Sulfonic Acid Market?

Production of consumer products and electronic appliances has increased and so did the consumption of methane sulfonic acid. The popularity of electronic appliances such as laptops, smartphones and other items among millennials and people of all age is expected to grow, creating prospects for application of methane sulfonic acid.

Changing lifestyle and preferences with increasing disposable income are major factors responsible for growth of the methane sulfonic acid market. Methane sulfonic acid is a key component used in electroplating done on these products. Against this backdrop, surging demand for electronic appliances will boost opportunities for sales in the market.

Expansion of the pharmaceutical industry in the last few years also has boosted the consumption of methane sulfonic acid as it is a crucial element that goes in the production of drugs.

It is used as an intermediate for various medicines. The COVID-19 outbreak was unprecedented and has given enough reasons to take care of health and wellbeing. Following the pandemic, people have become more aware about the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Increasing production of drugs and medicines is therefore on cards, which is expected to bolster the growth of the methane sulfonic acid market in near future. Due to its superior chemical and physical properties, it is used in different processes as it does not emit toxic gases. Moreover, waste generated from this acid is recyclable hence it reduces the cost required for waste treatment.
