Global Pyridine Market - 2021-2028
Pyridine is a combustible, poisonous, and soluble liquid base with a distinct, pungent odour. It's frequently thought to be the parent compound of a number of naturally occurring organic compounds. As a predecessor to agrochemicals and medicines, it is the favoured choice. Pyridine was first recovered from coal tar or as a by-product of coal gasification. The global pyridine market valued USD XX million in 2020 and is estimated to reach USD XX million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX%
During the projected period, the market is anticipated to be driven by growing demand for pyridine and its derivatives in pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals applications due to numerous chemical functionalities. Pyridine was once exclusively utilised as a solvent in chemicals, adhesives, and medicines, but pyridine derivatives are now being employed as a starting material for agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, food flavouring additives, and other products. The substance is also authorised by the FDA for use as a low-volume addition in the food sector to impart bitter taste. It's also used as an antifreeze combination to prevent alcohol from becoming denatured. The expansion of the pyridine market would be aided by a rise in applications in the food industry. The worldwide pyridine business is expanding due to advancements in biocatalyst processes, rising demand for synthetic pyridines, and the increasing use of pyridine in pesticides and herbicides. Companies are conducting extensive research to improve the use of pyridine in agrochemicals such as fungicides, insecticides, and herbicides.
The many rules and regulations established by various government agencies, however, are one of the key constraints in the global market for Pyridine. If breathed, ingested, or absorbed via the skin, pyridine is toxic. Some industrial operations emit trace quantities of pyridine into the environment. According to a study by the U.S National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, about 43,000 Americans work in contact with pyridines, which is harmful.
Pyridine prices have risen dramatically in 2019 due to increased demand for pesticides and herbicides in the agriculture industry for various crop rotation methods. Furthermore, the pandemic of COVID-19 has increased demand for Pyridine as an active initiator in medication manufacturing. Despite its strong demand, Pyridine prices have remained low due to decreased costs of feedstock Acetaldehyde and a historic drop in crude oil value. Pyridine costs have also dropped considerably in Europe and North America.
By Type, the Pyridine market is segmented into Pyridine N-Oxide, Alpha Picoline, Beta Picoline, Gamma Picoline, 2-Methyl-5-Ethylpyridine (MEP) and others. Pyridine N-oxide holds a significant share in the market. Alpha picoline has extensive applications in manufacturing vinyl pyridine latex, which is used as an intermediate in various industries like agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, dye, and photo industries. Beta Picoline is used to produce Vitamin B3. The beta picoline sector is expected to grow at a fastest CAGR throughout the forecast period in terms of volume. This is mostly due to growing niacin (Vitamin B3) demand in emerging countries such as Asia-pacific and the Middle East and Africa.
By End Users, the Global Pyridine market is bifurcated into Pharmaceuticals, Agrochemicals, Chemicals, Food, and others. The pharmaceuticals segment is majorly responsible for most of the share in the pyridine market. In the pharmaceutical industry, pyridine forms the nucleus of over 7000 existing drugs. Pyridine is used as an antimicrobial, antioxidant, antiviral, antidiabetic, anticancer, antimalarial, anti-inflammatory etc. For instance, Cu(II) metal complexes with 2-[N-(a-picolyl)-amino] Schiff base -benzophenone on pyridine, especially brominated derivatives, have the maximum cytotoxicity and anticancer activity. Also, antidiabetic properties are seen in pyridine derivatives including thiazolidinones. The findings demonstrate that some of these compounds have highly effective anti-diabetic properties, while just a few of them have significant anti-diabetic properties, and these discoveries might lead to the creation of a new class of anti-diabetic medicines in the future.
By Geography, the global pyridine market is segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, South America and the Middle East and Africa. Asia-Pacific region is set to dominate the global Pyridine market owing to the expansion of numerous end-use sectors, including agriculture, food and beverage, and the chemical industry, to name a few. Due to a growing customer base and favourable government laws, pyridine demand is projected to rise in Asia Pacific nations such as Bangladesh, China, Japan, India, South Korea, Vietnam, and Malaysia. Also the increasing availability of raw materials, land, labour are the crucial factors for the dominance of pyridine market in the Asia-pacific region. Europe and North America are set to follow next in terms of the global pyridine market. Over the forecast period, Europe is expected to have a significant increase in the pyridine market due to a strong customer base for a variety of end use sectors, as well as increased expenditures to rejuvenate the food and beverage industry. In North America, the growth in chemicals and Pharmaceuticals is expected to be the driving force for the pyridine Market.
