Sodium Ethylate Market Growth Analysis By Manufacturers, Regions, Types and Application Forecast

Sodium Ethylate Market: Introduction

The global sodium ethylate market is expected to witness lucrative growth in the coming future due to its extensive use in pharmaceutical application. Sodium ethylate, also known as sodium ethoxide, is a white-to-yellowish hygroscopic powder that dissolves in a polar solvent, such as methanol and ethanol. It is majorly used as a strong base in organic synthesis. Sodium ethylate decomposes and turns black on exposure to air and decomposes to sodium hydroxide and ethanol when dissolved in water. The commercial production process of sodium ethylate mainly composes of alkali and sodium method, wherein alkali method the raw material used is sodium hydroxide, and in sodium method, the raw material used is sodium metal. Sodium ethylate finds a wide variety of application in dyes & pigments, pharmaceuticals, pesticide synthesis, paints, varnishes and detergents. The global sodium ethylate market is expected to witness a growth in line with the GDP in the forecast period.

Sodium Ethylate Market: Market Dynamics

The key growth driving factor for the sodium ethylate market is its increasing use in the pharmaceutical application. The global pharmaceutical industry is on the rise owing to consumer lifestyles, disposable income of consumers and rising spending power. This drives the demand for a number of pharmaceutical ingredients, of which sodium ethylate is a part. Sodium ethylate is used in the production of various pharmaceutical products, including phenytoin, acetophenone phenylbutazone, aminopterin, cetazine, pyrimethamine, pirafloxacin, tetracaine hydrochloride, etc. Further, sodium ethylate application in pesticide synthesis is also one of the key factors for the growth of sodium ethylate market globally. The global pesticides industry is growing due to the increasing global population, limited availability of land, and rising awareness on the use of pesticides. Hence, with the increase in the global pesticides market, the demand for sodium ethylate increases globally. However, the majority of sodium ethylate consumption is in the production of pharmaceutical intermediate; making it susceptible to various regulation and compliance, which could hamper the growth of the sodium ethylate market globally. Moreover, there is a great emphasis on the emerging country, such as China, on the production of sodium ethylate, which will bring new opportunities for the market to grow in the forecast period.
