Global Thiochemicals Market to Reach US$ 1,663.5 Million by 2032, Impelled by Rising Product Demand from Poultry Industry

October 31, 2022 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Thiochemicals Market Report by Product Type (Mercaptan, Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO), Dimethyl Disulfide (DMDS), Thioglycolic Acid and Ester, Thiourea, and Others), Application (Animal Nutrition, Oil and Gas, Polymers and Chemicals, Food and Agrochemicals, Automotive and Transportation, Consumer Goods, Plastics, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global thiochemicals market reached a value of US$ 1,093.7 Million in 2023. Thiochemicals are a group of organic chemical compounds mainly referred to as sulfur analogs of alcohols containing a sulfur atom in the place of the oxygen atom. The replacement of atoms caused by the reaction is known as thionation or thiation. Since the association of molecules in thiochemicals happen through hydrogen bonding, they exhibit lower boiling points and are less soluble in water. Besides this, they are also characterized by a strong odor that resembles the scent of garlic and onions. They find extensive applications in the production of animal nutrition, agrochemicals, polymers, consumer goods and plastics.

Global Thiochemicals Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the increasing product demand from the poultry industry. This is supported by the growing utilization of thiochemicals in the production of methionine, that serves as an essential dietary supplement in the development of poultry animals. Apart from this, the growing investments by public and private agencies in the construction of new chemical plants and improving the existing infrastructure are creating a positive market outlook. Moreover, the widespread adoption of thiochemicals across the oil and gas sector for detecting gas leakage is impacting the market favorably. Furthermore, the rising product utilization in the manufacturing of thioglycolic acids that are widely used as a synthesizing agent for polyvinyl chloride (PVC) heat stabilizers is significantly supporting the demand for thiochemicals on the global level. Other factors, including rapid industrialization, continuous improvements in the chemical industry, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players, are also positively influencing the market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 1,663.5 Million by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.7% during 2024-2032.
