Global Pyridine Market 2016-2020

About Pyridine

Pyridines are heterocyclic aromatic compounds, with five carbon atoms and a nitrogen atom. The pyridine ring occurs naturally in biological compounds such as azines and in vitamins such as pyridoxal and niacin. Alpha-, beta-, and gamma-picoline are the methyl pyridine isomers of the compound.

Pyridine is primarily used as a raw material for the synthesis of agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals. The compound is used to denature alcohols such as ethanol and in the synthesis of sulfapyridine, antihistaminic drugs (tripelennamine and mepyramine), and in in vitro synthesis of DNA. It is also used in water repellents, herbicides, and bactericides.

Pyridine occurs in bone, low-temperature coal tars, pyrogenic oils, bituminous slate oil, and coffee oil. Oil-shale processing facilities and coke-oven works also release pyridine to the environment. It is also released while frying chicken, bacon, and cheese due to the degradation of nicotinamide and pyridoxine.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global pyridine market to grow at a CAGR of 7.45% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Pyridine Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Pyridine Market: BASF, Bayer, Dow Chemical Company, DuPont, Mitsubishi Chemical, Lonza, and Vertellus.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Jubilant Life Sciences, Koei Chemical, Nippon Steel & Sumikin Chemical, Royal DSM, Sanonda Group, Shandong Luba Chemical, Sinopec Qilu Petrochemical, and Xinxiang Hengji Chemical.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Bio-based agrochemicals offer an ecologically sound and effective solution to pest management. These chemicals are based on pathogenic microorganisms particular to a target pest. They are designed to affect only one specific pest or a few target organisms, are effective in small quantities and decompose quickly.”

According to the report, pyridine is recognized by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a food additive and is permitted for direct addition to food. The food and beverage industry is one of the dynamic industries with frequent changes in taste and quality of food products. Further, the demand for processed packaged foods from China, Brazil, and the US has been growing considerably since 2010.

Further, the report states that the widespread use of pyridine-based pesticides has increased the incidence of pesticide resistance in pests. Many species of pests are resistant to multiple pyridine-based pesticides. Currently, more than 1,000 pesticide resistant species of pests have been identified. Manufacturers of pyridine-based pesticides are therefore increasing their investments in R&D to develop effective chemicals against the resistant species.
