Market Overview

Dimethyl Ether Market is projected to be worth USD 29 Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 18.35% during the forecast period (2021 - 2030), The market was valued at USD 8 billion in 2021.

Market Research Future (MRFR) assessed the global Dimethyl Ether (DME) market 2021 through the study period till 2030. As per MRFR study, the dimethyl ether market is expected to thrive at high pace in the analysis period. The increasing demand for clean energy source is observed to boost the adoption of DME solutions due to its less carbon footprint. Thus, DME is extensively utilized in rapidly progressive fields, such as; automotive motors, power generation, and domestic household. The pressure-sensitive liquification property of DME makes it easy to store and transport. The surge in DME production as a fuel can be attributed to DME acting as an LPG alternative and is gaining tractions as a transportation fuel for gas turbines and diesel engines. The increase in the utility of dimethyl ether as both a solvent and aerosol propellant in the paints and coatings industry, along with aforementioned factors are expected to favor the global dimethyl ether market across the study period.

The upscaling demand of dimethyl ether in manufacturing paints and coatings, and as household and transportation fuel, owing to the shifting towards renewable and clean energy is attracting numerous investments. However, issues with cost optimize of DME can pose threat to the market. The sales of DME is rising eventually due to the increasing awareness about its no-negative effect on the environment. This is likely to counter the DME market slow-down.
