1,4-Dioxane Market: An Overview
1,4-Dioxane comes under a class of specialty chemical with limited applications in pharmaceutical and chemical industry. 1,4-Dioxane is extensively used to manufacture Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API), chemical intermediates, polymers, dyes and adhesives. Its localized utilization in formerly mentioned application is mainly driven by its properties such as inertness and high stability at greater pH values. In the past-half decade, demand of 1,4-dioxane from pharmaceutical industry has nearly doubled owing to the absence of alternatives for the product. 1,4-dioxane market concentration in pharmaceutical industry is set to provide a long-run thrust to the demand growth in long run forecast period. Key API manufacturers utilizing 1,4-Dioxane are Cadilla Pharmaceuticals, Alembic Pharmaceutics, Sanofi, Pfizer, Merck and bundle of other players positioned across the globe. Apart from its pharmaceutical applications, instances of 1,4-Dioxane utilization to manufacture chemical intermediates and cosmetics could be observed over the past half-decade.
Declining trends of demand could be observed in the past half over regulatory bodies cognizance over 1,4-dioxane traces in the cosmetics. The chemical has been proved to be a carcinogen by the EPA and FDA. But its utilization in manufacturing pharmaceutical ingredients remain firm, stabilizing the overall market stance over the past-half decade.
Demand Surge from Pharmaceutical Grade 1,4-Dioxane is set to Provide Long-Run Thrust to the Market
Majority of the 1,4-dioxane bulk sales could be tracked under two prominent grades, pharmaceutical and industrial grade. Pharmaceutical grade 1,4-Dioxane captures lions share in the market. Demand could largely be attributed to the enormous API production across the globe. Demand surge of 1,4-Dioxane has driven the prices of the product by 1.5 folds over the historical period. Apart from pharmaceutical grade dominance, industrial grade also has significant effect in determining the price of product in mid-term forecast period. Price of pharmaceutical grade 1,4 – Dioxane is expensive compared to the industrial grade 1,4 – Dioxane. Price fluctuations in the past half-decade has been observed in the pharmaceutical grade 1,4 – dioxane while the industrial grade price remained stable despite demand declination. All in all owing to the aforementioned factors, market is set to grow at a higher single digit CAGR in long term forecast period.
COVID-19 to Contract the 1,4-Dioxane Market
COVID-19 or Novel corona virus has not only put abrupt break over the movement of the people but also undesirably affected the trade of 1,4-dioxane across the regions. COVID-19 has contracted the market growth owing to the decline in demand from chemical industry. Production of 1,4 – Dioxane has declined by near one fourth in the 2nd quarter of FY2020. This has cascaded the effect to the price spike by near 5% over the period of mid-Q2 till the mid-Q3. Price normalization could be observed by the end of FY2022.
