Driving Factor:

Growing Promotion of DME as Renewable Synthetic Fuel to Aid Dimethyl Ether Market Growth

Topsoe, Mitsubishi, and Total emphasize the promotion of DME as a modern and renewable synthetic fuel, which will aid the expansion of the market. The shift from liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) to DME because of its combustion properties will incite the market's growth. It is a gas at average temperatures and pressures, but it can be liquefied at a moderate pressure. The increasing use of this chemical as aerosol, propellant, chemical feedstock, transportation gasoline, and refrigerant can have a tremendous impact on the dimethyl ether industry. The shortage of LPG will fuel demand for DME, thus fostering market growth. These bulk chemicals can also be made from various raw materials, including methanol, wood, and syngas, thus enabling high production to cater to the energy demand.
