This study is one of the most comprehensive documentation that captures all the facets of the evolving Dimethyl Disulphide Dmds Market market.


Dimethyl Disulphide (DMDS) is an organic chemical compound with CH3SSCH3 molecular formula and (Methyldisulfanyl) methane IUPAC name. A pale yellow liquid, it is the simplest disulphide compound. DMDS is a flammable liquid and has an unpleasant odour. The natural source of DMDS is Helicodiceros muscivorus, also known as dead-horse arum plant.  Chlorination and oxidation are the important chemical reactions of DMDS.

DMDS is rich in sulphur content and gives higher sulphur per pound of reagent as compared to dimethyl sulphide. DMDS is widely used for the wear processes in sliding systems, and as hydrotreating and hydrocracking catalyst. It is also used as a food additive in different food flavours. Other uses of DMDS are as soil fumigants in agriculture, and as an alternative for methyl bromide in chemical industries. It is also a major ingredient in the production of various pesticides. In the petrochemicals industry, DMDS is used for the protection of steam-cracking coils from the formation of coke and carbon monoxide. DMDS, an effective soil fumigant improves efficacy and reduces odour issues. For DMDS, the product labels require a Totally Impermeable Film (TIF). TIF increases retention of DMDS and the amount of chemical needed to apply reduces as compared to the application rates of other film types.

Dimethyl Disulphide (DMDS) Market:  Drivers & Restraints                  

The EPA has concluded that DMDS fumigant is unlikely to get into food crops. DMDS quickly breaks down into low toxicity or non?toxic degrades or by-products and metabolites which are further broken down such that these compounds may also be part of a normal diet. Strong demand from the agriculture sector will continue to fuel the growth of the global dimethyl disulphide market. The advantages of using DMDS include its exceptionally high sulphur content, low risk of premature coking by its by-products, lower decomposition temperature, making it a chemical of choice for activity testing and catalyst development. Applications in the petrochemical sector will also continue to support growth during the forecast period, 2016-2026.
