Market Overview:

The Global Acetonitrile market was 0.35 Million in 2018. It is expected to be around 3.2 Million in 2023 with a current CAGR of 4.95%.The Global Acetonitrile market is expected to witness moderate growth during the forecast period (2018 – 2023). Asia Pacific market is expected to grow the fastest among all other regions.Recently, a system was developed for monitoring of Patulin in fruits using liquid chromatography. Patulin is a mycotoxin that shows a huge number of toxic effects in animals. An experimental study was carried out where Patulin was extracted using acetonitrile & ethyl acetate. It was found that the carotenoid pigments were more easily extracted by ethyl acetate, whereas anthocyanins extraction was favored by acetonitrile. With the development in liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) a new method dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME) technique has been used for extraction as it improves efficiency. In this Acetonitrile is used as a dispersive solvent.

Market Drivers and Restraints:

Acetonitrile is a raw product for many end-user industries such as pharmaceuticals & biotech industry, various special chemicals additives, HPLC, & electronic industry. The rise in demand from these industries has kind of boosted the growth in the market. Moreover, the growing demand for Acetonitrile derived products such as acrylic fibers, polyacrylamide, and acrylic plastics is also one of the reasons for the growth of the market.The boom in pharma & biotech industries has fuelled the growth of this market. Every day some new kind of drug is being prepared to cure various ailments. Acetonitrile market is expected to have potential growth in the recycling industry which will also push the growth of the market.Increase in price, heavy fluctuations in the availability of material & irregular supply has caused some hindrances in the market’s growth. Use of many other alternative solvents & stringent environmental policies is also some of the reasons for inhibiting the market’s growth.
