Formamide Market

Formamide Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2019 - 2027

Formamide Market: Introduction

  • Formamide, also known as methanamide, is an amide derived from formic acid. Formamide. It is a clear liquid, which has an ammonia-like odor and is miscible with water. Formamide is being proposed to be used as an alternative to water as a solvent. Its solvation properties are similar to that of water due to large dipole moment.
  • Formamide is utilized as chemical feedstock for the manufacture of sulfa drugs, other pharmaceuticals, pesticides, herbicides, and in the production of hydrocyanic acid. It also employed as a softener for paper and fiber. It is utilized as a solvent for several ionic compounds and resins & plasticizers.
  • Formamide is a component of cryoprotectant vitrification mixtures that are used for cryopreservation of tissues and organs. It is also utilized as an RNA stabilizer in gel electrophoresis by deionizing RNA. In capillary electrophoresis, it is used to stabilize (single) strands of denatured DNA.

Key Drivers of Global Formamide Market

  • Demand for various agrochemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, and insectides is rising due to a surge in occurrence of various pests and diseases. This increasing demand for agrochemicals is expected to drive the formamide market, as it is used as an intermediate in the production of agrochemicals.
  • Expansion of the pharmaceutical industry is driving the formamide market. Formamide is used as solvent in the production of various pharmaceuticals. Rising healthcare expenditure by population is boosting the demand for formamide. Moreover, rise in healthcare budget of governments of various countries is driving pharmaceutical industries, which in turn is further propelling the demand for formamide. This is a key factor that is estimated to drive the formamide market during the forecast period.

Pharmaceutical Processing Segment to Dominate Global Formamide Market

  • Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases worldwide is fueling the demand for various sulfonamide derivatives. Sulfonamides were the first anti-microbial drugs developed to treat bacterial infections in humans and animals. Sulfonamides also restrains the growth of bacteria and hence act as bacteriostatic agents. Rising demand for formamide as intermediate in production of these sulfonamides is expected to boost the demand for formamide during the forecast period.
  • Rising demand and sale of pharmaceutical products is likely to boost the demand for pharmaceutical solvent. This, in turn, is likely to augment the demand for formamide, as it is used as solvent in pharmaceutical products.

Global Formamide Market: Restraints

  • A major challenge for all solvents is the stringent government regulations regarding its manufacture, storage, and transportation. This is expected to hinder the demand for formamide, as it is used as solvent in various industries.

 Asia Pacific to Hold Significant Share of Global Formamide Market

  • In terms of region, the formamide market can be split into five regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • Asia Pacific is anticipated to dominate the global formamide market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the availability of resources, such as raw material and labor, at cost effective prices in the region. Several solvent manufacturers have recently shifted their production facilities to countries, including India, China, Thailand, and South Korea.
  • China, India, and Japan account for major share of the total pulp and paper production in Asia Pacific. Expansion of the packaging industry in the region, due to increase in expenditure on food and beverages and rise in industrialization, is projected to fuel the demand for paper-based packaging in the region. Formamide is utilized as a softener for paper, which in turn, is expected to drive the formamide market in the region.
  • The pharmaceutical solvent market in Europe and North America is anticipated to expand at a sluggish pace, which in turn is projected to restraint the formamide market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the saturated pharmaceutical industry in these regions.
