Carbon disulfide is a Colourless and flammable compound, that has the chemical formula CS2. It usually takes the form of liquid and has an ether-like odor. Volcanic eruptions contain trace amounts of carbon disulfide. Previously, coke and sulfur were heated together to create carbon disulfide.

The manufacturing process is currently carried out at a slightly lower temperature, using natural gas as the carbon source, sulfur, and either aluminium or silica gel as the catalyst. Carbon disulfide is employed in spectroscopes as an optical dispersion, fumigant, pesticide, and non-polar solvent. Additionally, it serves as a fundamental component in the production of other compounds.

Additionally, it serves as a feedstock for the manufacture of carbon tetrachloride. In the food industry, carbon disulfide is utilized in the extraction of the solvent of growth inhibitors as well as to shield fresh produce from bugs and fungus during shipping. Other uses include the cold vulcanization of rubber and the production of xanthates, resins, and accelerators for the rubber industry.

Historical (2016-21) Vs. Forecast (2022-32) Market Outlook

Over the period covered by the study (2016-2021), the market for Carbon Disulfide was recorded to grow at a phenomenal CAGR of 2.1 % between 2016 and 2021, mostly due to the increasing demand for rayon and other cellulosic fibers from textile and industry.

Whereas, as per the latest survey conducted by FMI, the carbon disulfide market is expected to progress at a CAGR of 2.9% between 2022 and 2032. Rising demand for carbon nanomaterials, particularly carbon nanotubes, is anticipated to create demand for carbon disulfide as rubber, phosphorus, sulfur, bromine, asphalt, resin, selenium, iodine, and fats are all dissolved in carbon disulfide and used as a cleaning solvent.

Market Dynamics

The usage of carbon disulfide for agrochemical production.

Carbon disulfide is mostly utilized in the agricultural industry to produce dithiocarbamates, biocides, fungicides, and fumigants. Metam sodium (N-methyldithiocarbamate), which is largely utilized in soil sterilization and fumigation, is the main chemical produced from carbon disulfide. It is made when caustic, methyl methacrylate (MMA), and carbon di Sulfide reacts.

These substances are frequently used to grow tomatoes and potatoes at home and in the garden. The increasing use of carbon disulfide in agriculture is anticipated to fuel market expansion.

Increasing demand from the Pharmaceutical industry.

Carbon disulfide is primarily used in the pharmaceutical sector to produce a number of medicines and intermediates. Additionally, it is used as a fumigant to get rid of insects in cereals, grains, pulses, and other products that are kept in storage.

Most insects are poisoned by carbon disulfide fumes at concentrations of 100 ppm or more, while mammals and people are unaffected. Due to the abovementioned facts, it is expected that the pharmaceutical industry will create opportunities for carbon disulfide in the future.
