This level of purity is used as a chemical intermediate for the manufacture of vinyl chloride monomer which is used in polyvinyl chloride production. This, produced polyvinyl chloride is widely in the pharma industry, automotive parts, paint & coatings, and other application which is expected to drive the market.

1,2-Dichloroethane Market Segment Analysis – By Application

Vinyl chloride monomer held the largest share in the global market of 1,2-dichloroethane in 2020. 1,2-dichloroethane is used in the production of vinyl chloride monomer that is used to make polyvinyl chloride. Polyvinyl chloride leads a significant share in paint, adhesives, coatings, pharmaceutical, and other industries. 1,2-Dichloroethane (ethylene dichloride) is also used generally as an intermediate for other organic chemical compounds and as a solvent including water at a boiling point of 70.5 °C. Hence, the high production of organic compounds is projected to the market size.

1,2-Dichloroethane Market Segment Analysis – By End-Use Industry

Pharmaceutical dominated the global market of 1,2-dichloroethane in 2020 and is growing at a CAGR of 4.2% during 2021-2026. 1,2-dichloroethane is a highly soluble liquid thus is used as a solvent for the processing of pharmaceutical products. It is a highly flammable colorless liquid and is used in the production of vinyl chloride monomer and polyvinyl chloride. PVC is used in pharmaceuticals as primary packaging materials, which protect the pharmaceutical product against Oxygen and odor permeation, moisture, and water vapor transmission. Thus, the growing pharmaceutical sector is highly consuming PVC which, in turn, is estimated to grow the demand for 1,2-dichloroethane. According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the healthcare market is expected to increase by Rs. 8.6 trillion (US$ 133.44 billion) by 2022. Additionally, according to India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), India’s domestic pharmaceutical market is estimated at US$ 41 billion in 2021. The sector is also expected to reach US$ 65 billion by 2024 and ~US$ 120-130 billion by 2030. Hence, the growing pharmaceutical industry is expected to boost the demand for 1,2-dichloroethane.

1,2-Dichloroethane Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

Asia Pacific dominated the global 1,2-dichloroethane market in 2020 with more than the share of 30%, due to growing consumption from automotive, construction, textiles, pharmaceutical, and other industries especially in India, Malaysia, Thailand, and China. 1,2-dichloroethane is used to produce vinyl chloride which is used in upholstery applications and automotive parts.
