Dimethyl Carbonate Market Report Scope & Overview:

The Dimethyl Carbonate Market Size was valued at USD 921.14 million in 2022, and is expected to reach USD 1.46 billion by 2030, and grow at a CAGR of 6.0% over the forecast period 2023-2030.

Dimethyl carbonate is an all-around chemical that has good solubility and low toxicity, among other good qualities. In terms of how it looks, it is a pale chemical that can catch fire and has no smell. It reacts with other chemicals in a strong way. Before, methanol and phosgene were mixed together to make dimethyl carbonate. However, phosgene is so dangerous that the chemical is now made using other methods, such as transesterification or copper-catalyzed. Dimethyl carbonate is used in a wide range of industries. Because of its good chemical properties, dimethyl carbonate is often used as a solvent in the paint and coatings market.

Impact of COVID-19:

All marketing businesses in 2020 have been affected by the ongoing pandemic, and the dimethyl carbonate market is one of them. During this period of lockdown, the big players lost a lot of money because they couldn't sell their goods to all the countries. But now things are different. Suppliers in the dimethyl carbonate market have come up with new plans to increase customer demand. In the COVID-19 period, they changed some of their products to meet customer needs. This helped them reach their goal by 2024.

During COVID-19, the DMC market helps companies like Kowa Company Ltd., Ube Industries Ltd., and Merck KGaA. In May 2020, Ube Industries, Ltd. gave 300 protective medical gowns to the Ube city health centre, the health and welfare department, the health and sanitation bureau, and the Aichi Prefectural Government. In November 2020, a company called PeptiAID Inc. was set up as a joint venture. Its goal is to research peptide therapies that will help both the SARS-CoV-2 virus and other viruses in the future. Merck KGaA gave USD 82,890 worth of research equipment to the Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology in Indonesia in September 2020 to help with vaccine development research and to show support.

So, the report says that the COVID-19 has an effect on the market for dimethyl carbonate for a certain amount of time. Still, this pandemic has given them the idea to add new things to their product to make it more popular. The big players have taken on big jobs to promote their market segments and get back to where they were in the global market.

14. Conclusion

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
