Demand from Agrochemicals Sector to Drive Global Pyridine Market

While pyridine has been used as a solvent in adhesives, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals, pyridine derivatives are being increasingly used in the manufacturing of agrochemicals, food-flavouring additives, and others. Pyridine derivatives act as denaturants for antifreeze mixtures as well. Rise in demand for synthetic pyridine, growing applications of pyridine in herbicides and pesticides, and advancement in biocatalysts processes are expected to augment the growth of the global pyridine market.

The key applications of pyridine include agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, food, chemicals, and others including alcohol and dyestuff. In 2015, the agrochemicals segment held majority share in the market and is expected to drive the growth of the market in the near future. The extensive usage of pyridine as a denaturant in the chemicals sector will also contribute significantly towards the growth of the market.

Jubilant Life Sciences to Benefit from Reduction of Anti Dumping Duty on Pyridine Imports in China

The major players in the global pyridine market are partnering with local companies to strengthen their regional presence. Jubilant Life Sciences has announced that it will benefit from the Chinese government’s decision to lower anti dumping duty on the imports of pyridine. In China, pyridine is mainly used across the pharmaceutical sector. But the Indian company has not revealed that how much it would gain from this decision and is yet to disclose the value of pyridine exports to China.

According to a statement released last month, the company has mentioned that the Chinese Ministry of Commerce has lowered the anti-dumping duty on its pyridine to 17.6% from the current 24.6%. The company had filed a review petition for the reduction in anti-dumping duty. The company added that it will continue to observe the market conditions in China to benefit from the reduced duty.
