The global diethyl sulfide market size is expected to witness potential gains in the future and register a significant CAGR over the forecast period (2019 - 2027).

Market Overview

Diethyl sulfide is an organosulfur compound found in alcoholic beverages. This clear flammable chemical compound has a pungent garlic-like odor. Diethyl sulfide is a by-product of the commercial production of ethanethiol. It is less dense than water, with its vapors heavier than air. Diethyl sulfide is used to make other chemicals, in electroplating, and as a solvent for anhydrous mineral salts.

Market Dynamics

Increasing demand for diethyl sulfide for use in applications such as plating baths is expected to boost growth of the global diethyl sulfide market. In the metal finishing industry, electroplating is used for decorative purposes or to prevent corrosion of a metal. Therefore, increasing demand for decorative items and coating products is also expected to lead to high demand for diethyl sulfide, thereby boosting growth of the market.

Diethyl sulfide is also used as a flavoring agent and is found in food and beverages such as baked goods,            alcoholic beverages, meat products, nonalcoholic beverages, and soft candy. Therefore, increasing demand for diethyl sulfide from the food and beverages industry is expected to drive growth of the market.

However, growing preference for electro-less nickel-plating is expected to hinder the market growth. Diethyl sulfide also has toxic effects if inhaled or absorbed through skin. The chemical compound may also cause water pollution.

Market Outlook

On the basis of region, the global diethyl sulfide market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.  The global market is expected to witness significant growth, owing to growing metal processing industry. The market in Asia Pacific is expected to witness significant growth, owing to increasing demand for diethyl sulfide as solvents in industrial chemicals. Moreover, rapid industrialization in emerging economies such as China and India is also expected to boost the market share of Asia Pacific.

The market in North America is expected to be driven by growing food and beverages industry. The U.S. is poised to be a major growth engine, due to increasing metal recovery activities. Stringent regulations on the use of chemicals in the European Union is expected to hinder growth of the market in Europe.    

Key Players

Major players operating in the global diethyl sulfide market include, Acros Organics B.V.B.A., Arkema Inc., Tokyo Chemical Industry Co., Ltd., Finetech Industry Limited, and Sigma-Aldrich Corporation.
