Increased vitamin production to require robust sodium


Tokyo, Oct. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fact.MR’s latest research report on the Global Sodium Methylate Market offers an elaborate analysis of the major segments in terms of form, packaging gender, application, end-use industry, and region. It also provides detailed information about the key players and the vital strategies adopted by them to win a competitive advantage.

Fact.MR – A market research and competitive intelligence provider: The global sodium methoxide market is expected to grow by more than 3% during the forecast period (2018 – 2027). The need for chemicals used in the production of chemical fibers and dyes, oil processing, and medicinal formulations that require catalytic reactions are some of the major factors that have led to the expansion of the methoxide market. sodium.

Moreover, the sodium methylate market is expected to grow throughout the forecast period owing to the growing demand from several applications, especially pharmaceutical and food and beverage sectors. In the commercial electrolytic method which uses an inert gas, sodium methoxide is made from sodium chloride and methanol.

The global sodium methoxide market will also be boosted by its use as a catalyst in the biodiesel sector. However, sodium methylate is considered a common catalyst in the manufacture of biodiesel and is very reactive with oxygen.

In order to prevent it from decomposing into sodium hydroxide and methanol at high temperatures, it is kept away from moisture, water or air. The increasing amount of biodiesel that can be produced due to high fuel demand and government initiatives in some countries to blend it with other fuels is also expected to support growth. The demand for sodium methylate has increased due to the increase in biodiesel production capacity of various companies.
