Global dimethyl ether (DME) market size for LPG blending led the overall business in 2018 and is likely to observe promising growth of 7.6% over the forecast timespan. The prime factors responsible for increasing DME demand for LPG blending is the pressing need to reduce harmful emissions which has been increasing owing to rising population primarily in Asia Pacific. LPG use for heating and cooking for domestic purpose has been a major cause of increasing harmful pollutants in the environment which can be condensed by LPG blending with DME which is added up to volume concentration of 15-20% and is feasible to add value adding benefits to LPG use across domestic purpose.

Asia Pacific, chiefly led by India and China, accounted for major share in global dimethyl ether market in 2018. In addition, the region will experience significant growth rate over the forecast timespan. High product demand in Asia Pacific is attributed to its widespread applications in LPG blending which is gradually gaining momentum to attain environmental sustainability. Improving regulatory framework in the favor of environment in the region is encouraging product applications in LPG blending to reduce soot, particulate matter and other pollutants to improve the overall air quality in the longer run.


Global DME market comprises many large multinational players as well as mid-scale vendors. Some prominent players operating in the industry are China Energy Ltd, Akzo Nobel NV, Royal Dutch Shell PLC, Korea Gas Corporation, Mitsubishi Corporation, Guangdong JOVO Group Co., Fuel DME Production Co., Ltd, Ltd, Grillo-Werke AG and Shenhua Ningxia Coal Industry Group Co.
