Global chloromethane market was valued at around USD2200 million in 2019 and is projected to grow at a steady pace during the forecast period. Growing demand for chloromethane from various end-user industries is one of the key factors for the growth of global chloromethane market across the globe. Additionally, growing industrialization is likely to fuel the demand for derivatives of chloromethane like chloroform, carbon tetrachloride and methylene chloride, thereby driving the chloromethane market across the globe. Moreover, surging demand for chloromethane in region such as BRICS, etc., is anticipated to open opportunities for the growth of new market players in the market over the years to come. Chloromethane is usually preferred over other halo alkanes because of its use as an extracting agent for gases, resins and oils. Furthermore, its increasing usage as a blowing agent and propellant in polystyrene foam production is expected to give a healthy push to the market growth over the coming years. 

The global chloromethane market is segmented based on manufacturing process, product type, application, region and company. Based on product type, the market can be segmented into methylene chloride, chloroform, carbon tetrachloride and methyl chloride. Out of which, the chloroform, also known as trichloro methane, is projected to witness high growth rate, which can be attributed to its comprehensive applications as an early anaesthetic in dentistry & surgery, in organic separation & synthesis and as a precursor in teflon production. Carbon tetrachloride segment is also anticipated to grow at high pace over the forecast period on account of its use as hepatotoxin for the evaluation of liver protective agents. 

Major players operating in the chloromethane market include Asahi Glass Co. Ltd, AkzoNobel N.V., Occidental Chemical Corporation, Solvay SA, Shin-Etsu Chemical Co. Ltd., Dow Chemical Company, INEOS Group, Olin Corporation, Tokuyana Corporation, Gujarat Fluorochemicals Ltd and others.
