4,4-Dichlorodiphenyl Sulfone (DCDPS) Market
4,4-Dichlorodiphenyl Sulfone (DCDPS) Market By Grade (Industrial Grade, Pharma Grade, Reagent Grade), By Application (Engineered Plastics, Polysulfone, Polyethersulfone, PolyPhenylSulfone, Pharmaceutical), By Region - Global Market Insights 2019 to 2029
Engineered Plastic Applications to Drive Demand, As Sulfone Polymers Account for Large Chunk of Market Share
Global 4,4-Dichlorodiphenyl sulfone (DCDPS) market is forecast witness modest growth of around 4% between 2019 to 2029. Of all applications of DCDPS, engineered plastics account for around three fourth of market share through 2029.
DCDPS is extensively used in manufacturing various sulfone polymers such as polyethersulfone (PES), polysulfone (PSU), polyphenylene sulfone (PPSU).
Escalating demand for high performance sulfone polymers for various end-use industries such as the electrical industry is purported to be the main demand driver.
In addition, other factors such as, continued and increased applications in aircraft, automobiles, and medical industry has created enormous opportunities for DCDPS market players.
Key DCDPS player such as Solvay are growing on the back of their forward integration strategies for the production of sulfone polymers.

Pharma Grade DPDCS to Exhibit High Growth in Asia, as Demand for Dapsone Drug Soars
4,4-Dichlorodiphenyl sulfone (DCDPS) is used as an intermediate to create an anti-leprosy drug called “Dapsone”. Safety measures, against the spread of leprosy, has been driving the consumption of 4,4-Dichlorodiphenyl Sulfone (DCDPS).
Furthermore, ‘Anti-Leprosy World 2020’ movement started by WHO international creates an enormous opportunity for manufacturers producing 4,4-Dichlorodiphenyl sulfone (DCDPS)-pharma grade.
With, 72% of leprosy cases from South East Asia, there is an increased demand for DCDPS for manufacturing dapsone in the region.
However, there have been very few leprosy cases in western countries such as US, UK and Germany. Thus the demand for pharma grade DCDPS from these countries is minimal.
An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs
South Asia & Oceania Reigns Supreme, Stagnant Growth Observed in Europe and North America
From a regional perspective, South Asia & Oceania collectively account for largest market share in global 4,4-Dichlorodiphenyl Sulfone (DCDPS) market, on the back of large production facilities from India.
Companies such as Solvay S.A and Vertellus have established their production lines in India, due to easy availability of raw materials and low production cost.
India is one of the largest exporters of DCDPS monomer to strategic locations such as Europe and North America. Owing to its favorable trade relations with EU and US, India has an added trade advantage over China for DCDPS trade.
East Asia ranks second in terms of demand, which is primarily driven by China. The country has currently around 20,000 tons of DCDPS production capacity.
Furthermore, markets in Europe and North America have witnessed steady growth with demand mainly for engineered plastic such as PSU & PESU.
Leading DCDPS Market Players Focusing on Forward Integration for Sharper Profit Margins
Global 4,4-Dichlorodiphenyl Sulfone (DCDPS) market is highly consolidated in nature. Top three players in market account for over 60% of revenue share at a global level.
