Acetonitrile Market: Industry Overview, Growth, Trends, Opportunities and Forecast 2022-2027


As per the latest report by IMARC Group titled, “Acetonitrile Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global acetonitrile market reached a volume of 142 Kilotons in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

Acetonitrile is a colorless, toxic, volatile, and flammable chemical compound produced as a byproduct during acrylonitrile manufacturing. It is the simplest organic nitrile that can be mixed with water and most organic solvents. It also exhibits high miscibility with alcohol, acetone and epoxy resin without interference with epoxy polymerization. As a result, it finds extensive applications in pharmaceuticals, casting and molding of plastic materials, perfume production, and extracting fatty acids from animal and vegetable oil.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Acetonitrile Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic worldwide due to the growing infrastructural activities and the rising need for lightweight vehicles. Acetonitrile is widely used in the plastic industry to obtain pure acrylonitrile and ABS plastic, which offers high tensile and impact strength, and optimal resistance against chemicals and various plasticizers. In addition, aqueous acetonitrile is the preferred extraction solvent utilized in the agricultural sector to synthesize pesticide residues from agrarian samples. Besides this, the rising preference for acetonitrile in high-performance liquid chromatography, an analytical chemistry technique for separating, identifying, and quantifying a component in a mixture, is positively influencing the market growth.
