Global Thionyl Chloride Market is Expected to Reach USD 25.1 Billion By 2033

Thionyl chloride market size valued USD 13.9 billion in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2024 to 2033. The increasing penetration of 5g technology drive the market’s growth. Asia Pacific emerged as the largest global thionyl chloride market region, with a 42.1% market revenue share in 2023.

Newark, May 21, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Brainy Insights estimates that the USD 13.9 billion thionyl chloride market will reach USD 25.1 billion by 2033. Rising demand for thionyl chloride over other reagents is anticipated throughout the projected period to fuel market expansion. Its main application is as a chlorinating agent, which converts carboxylic acid into carboxylic acid chlorides. In addition, it is employed in various processes, such as the chlorination of acid anhydride, the conversion of alcohols to alkyl chlorides, and the chlorine displacement of organic sulfonic acid and carboxylic acid. With all its benefits, thionyl chloride can be used instead of other reagents like phosphorous pentachloride. Thionyl chloride is a versatile reagent, and its gaseous byproducts benefit the product purification process by promoting its employment as a reagent.
