Global Dimethylformamide(DMF) Market: Market Driver and Restraint
Applications of Dimethylformamide(DMF) are anticipated to create new business segments in the market. Dimethylformamide(DMF) is in use for a broad range of Polyurethane Processing products such as processing solvent (including solvent for dicyandiamide for epoxy-laminated printed circuit boards), urethane coatings, spinning solvent (primarily for acrylics) & others. The companies are focusing on launching products that are launched in few regions. There lies a great opportunity since only a few companies are into this business due to introductory stage of this product market. Dimethylformamide(DMF) application is developed towards a more active mode.
Manufacturers are exploring the potential of Dimethylformamide(DMF) in Polyacrylonitrile. Application of Dimethylformamide(DMF) in medical application are gaining traction in the recent years. Recently, manufacturers have started using Dimethylformamide(DMF) in the Copper Clad Laminate area. Further, there are also potential uses in the areas of food & beverages.
