Global 3-Methylanisole (CAS 100-84-5) Market 2023


Product Code: GC04727R Industry: Region:

3-Methylanisole, with the chemical formula CH3OC6H4CH3, is a colorless flammable liquid that belongs to the group of methoxytoluenes or cresyl methyl ethers. It serves as an important intermediate in chemical reactions to obtain various target materials, including color formers, pharmaceuticals, perfumes, photo initiators, and agrochemicals. Additionally, 3-Methylanisole is widely used in the study of the functionalized core of calyciphylline A-type alkaloids. According to the latest market study results, the global 3-methylanisole market is expected to experience a steady growth rate of 4.2 percent annually through 2029 in terms of revenue.

The compound 3-Methylanisole plays a crucial role in the production of 2-anilino-6-dibutylamino-3-methylfluoran (ODB-2), which serves as a key color former for thermal and carbonless paper coatings. ODB-2 is widely used in the paper industry and is suitable for almost all thermal paper grades. It imparts the ability to develop color upon exposure to heat, making it an essential component in the production of thermal paper used in applications such as receipts, tickets, and labels.

Market Segmentation
Application: color formers, chemical intermediates, others
Region: Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, RoW (Rest of World)

This industry report offers market estimates and forecasts of the global market, followed by a detailed analysis of the application, and region. The global market for 3-methylanisole can be segmented by application: color formers, chemical intermediates, others. Among these, the color formers segment was accounted for the highest revenue generator in 2022. ODB-2 is the key color former for thermal and carbonless paper coatings. ODB-2 is known for its ability to produce intense black images with excellent image stability in most grades of heat-sensitive paper, also known as thermal paper. Thermal paper is widely used in applications such as receipts, labels, and tickets, where heat is applied to create an image. ODB-2 exhibits high thermal sensitivity, making it an ideal choice for producing clear and long-lasting images on thermal paper.

In recent years, there have been significant shifts in the global ODB-2 production landscape. The production capacity for ODB-2 was initially concentrated in the United States and Germany. However, due to profitability issues, many producers in these countries have been forced out of the industry. As a result, Chinese ODB-2 producers have emerged and now control more than 90% of the industry’s production capacity. This shift has had a significant impact on the global market dynamics and supply chains for ODB-2.

The Asia-Pacific region accounted for the largest share of the global 3-methylanisole market. The Asia-Pacific region is home to several major companies operating in industries that require 3-methylanisole. These companies contribute to the high demand for the compound in the region.
