Posted by Rishab Gupta on November 27th, 2019

Market Introduction

Pyridine is a toxic water-soluble flammable liquid base represent as C5H5N which is the origin of many naturally occurring organic compounds such as beta picoline, 2-amino pyridine, 4-phenylpropylpyridine, alpha picoline, bispicolylamine, nicotinic acid, pyridine, and others. It is widely used as a solvent for alcohol and in the production of pharmaceuticals and agriculture industry.

Key Players of Global Pyridine Market

Jubilant Life Sciences Ltd. (India), Vertellus Holdings LLC, (Europe), Lonza Group AG (Switzerland), Resonance Specialties Ltd.(India), Shangdong Luba Chemical Co. Ltd (China), Sanonda Group Corp (China), Chang Chun Petrochemical Co. Ltd (China), Koei Chemical Co. Ltd. (Japan), C-Chem Co., Ltd. (Japan), Weifang Sunwin Chemicals Co. Limited (China)

Commenting on this report, an analyst from Market Research Future (MRFR)’s team said, “Global Pyridine Market Size is expected to grow at USD ~747.89 million by 2023.

It can be produced from coal tar and also from tobacco and various organic materials. In addition, pyridine founds in various end user industry such as pharmaceutical, food & beverage, agricultural, animals nutritional, oilfield, and others (chemical industry, textile industry, etc.). Among all industry food & beverage and agricultural acquired the major pyridine market share in 2016.

Pyridine Market Segments

The global pyridine market has been segmented into derivatives, application, and end user industries. On the basis of technology, the market has been divided into beta picoline, 2-amino pyridine, 4-phenylpropylpyridine, alpha picoline, bispicolylamine, nicotinic acid, pyridine, and others (2--5-Bromo-4-Methyl Pyridine, 3-Acetyl Pyridine, 2-Bromo Pyridine, etc.).

Among all derivatives beta picoline pyridine derivatives is majorly used in the pharmaceutical industry, as it is used in the production of vitamin B3 which is an essential food additive used in energy drinks, nutritional food products, and others. Furthermore, beta picoline is widely used as an intermediate for active regents for herbicides and insecticides in agriculture industry. The second derivative 2-Aminopyridine is an organic compound with the formula H2NC5H4N, which is a transparent solid that is used in the pharmaceutical industry particularly in the production of the drugs piroxicam, tenoxicam, tripelennamine and sulfapyridine. Whereas, the next pyridine derivative alpha picoline finds wide application as a solvent in chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and food industries.

Alpha picoline, also known as 2-Methyl Pyridine which is a clear organic liquid and fully soluble in water, alcohol and ether. It is also applicable in human nutrition, animal nutrition, agrochemical and other industrial sectors, the pharmaceutical industry is expected to show moderate growth over the forecast period.  Additionally, alpha picoline also used as the raw material for 2-Vinylpyridine. The next derivative of pyridine is bispicolylamine which is used as ligand in resins for recovery copper and nickel during ore extractions, it is widely used as Intermediates in various chemicals industry. Most significantly nicotinic acid used in pharmaceutical industry, it recovers all lipoproteins during requirement of vitamin.

On the basis of applications, the market has been divided into solvent, intermediate, corrosion inhibition, pesticides, precursor, and others (Latexes, paints, adhesives, etc.).Among all the applications it is highly used as a solvent due to having features such as it can totally soluble in ether, alcohol, water, and benzene. Pyridine is used as a polar, basic, low-reactive solvent in the manufacture of dyes and rubber, textile industry to improve linkage ability of fiber. In small amount, pyridine is added to foods to provide them a bitter flavor, which is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. On the other hand, in agriculture industry pyridine used as a pesticide to the herbicides paraquat and diquat. Application of pyridine in pesticides observed swift growth particularly, in herbicides, insecticides, and bactericides that had already been developed by some manufactures around the world.

Competitive Landscapes

The major players such as Weifang Sunwin Chemicals Co. Limited in the global pyridine market are uniting with local companies to strengthen their regional presence in this region. Various manufacturers of pyridine & pyridine derivatives such as Shangdong Luba Chemical Co. Ltd and Sanonda Group Corp are focusing this region due to having of huge industrial opportunity in various sector such as in pharmaceutical, food & beverage, agricultural, animal nutritional, oilfield, and others. China, India, Thailand, Japan, and Malaysia are the most important countries to enhancing the growth of pyridine market in this region. In addition, beta picoline derivative of pyridine is estimated to experience noteworthy growth rate over the forecast period due to increasing demand for niacin in this region especially from China, India, japan, and Thailand. It is used in pharmaceutical, cosmetics and in skin care, and in agrochemicals.


Asia Pacific region dominated the global Pyridine market in 2016, and is expected to continue the dominance during the forecast period. Due to increase in usage of pyridine and its derivatives in agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals segments in Asia Pacific, the pyridine market in the region is projected to expand at a higher than average over 2016–2023. Asia Pacific is the most profitable region in terms of CAGR and market share in the global pyridine market. In terms of value, beta picoline derivative of pyridine is anticipated to experience the highest growth rate during the forecast period in the APAC market. The growing applications of pyridine in the pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals sectors has increased the growth of the global pyridine market. In addition, pyridine has been used as a solvent in adhesives, chemicals, intermediates, in production of end user industry such as agrochemicals, food & beverages, and others. Furthermore, rising applications of pyridine in herbicides and pesticides, predicted the growth of the global pyridine market from APAC region.
