Dimethyl Disulphide Market Overview:
Dimethyl disulfide (DMDS) is an organic chemical compound with the molecular formula CH3SSCH3 and the name (methylsulfonyl) methane IUPAC. The pale yellow liquid is the simplest disulfide compound. DMDS is a flammable liquid with an unpleasant odour. Helicodiceros muscivorus, also known as Dead Horse Arum, is the natural source of DMDS. Chlorination and oxidation are the important chemical reactions of DMDS. DMDS has a high sulfur content and provides more sulfur per pound of reagent than dimethyl sulfide. DMDS is widely used to wear processes in sliding systems and as a hydrotreating and hydrocracking catalyst.
It is also used as a food additive in different food flavours. Other uses of DMDS are soil fumigants in agriculture and alternatives to methyl bromide in the chemical industries. It is also an important ingredient in the production of various pesticides. In the petrochemical industry, the DMDS is used to protect the steam cracking coils from the formation of coke and carbon monoxide. DMDS, an effective soil fumigant, improves efficiency and reduces odour problems. For DMDS, product labels require a fully waterproof film (TIF). TIF increases the retention of DMDS and the amount of chemical that is applied is reduced compared to the application rates of other types of films.
Dimethyl Disulphide Market Drivers and restraints:
The EPA concluded that the fumigant DMDS is unlikely to enter food crops. DMDS breaks down rapidly into low toxicity or non-toxic substances or by-products and metabolites, which are then broken down so that these compounds can also be part of a normal diet. Strong demand from the agricultural sector will continue to drive the growth of the global market for dimethyl disulfide. The benefits of using DMDS include its exceptionally high sulphur content, its low risk of premature coking due to its by-products, its lower decomposition temperature, which makes it a chemical of choice for testing purposes. The activity and development of catalysts. Applications in the petrochemical sector will also continue to support growth during the forecast period.
Geographically, the global dimethyl disulfide market (DMDS) is classified into North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia-Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ), and Japan. The DMDS is mainly used as a food additive in different food tastes. Other uses of DMDS are soil fumigants in agriculture and alternatives to methyl bromide in the chemical industries. An additional advantage of DMDS is the by-product of methane resulting from its decomposition. Since the main fields of application are petrochemicals and agriculture, the global DMDS market has considerable growth potential with a healthy compound annual growth rate during the forecast period. As a result, APEJ, North America and Western Europe together account for more than half of the global dimethyldisulfide market revenues.
