DME Production Plan of Indonesia to Encourage Market Growth
The Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources and state-owned energy company Pertamina announced their plans to increase DME's commercial production. Indonesia has been researching the prospect of blending domestically-manufactured DME with LPG for commercial and domestic usage to eliminate the necessity for imported LPG. The country has evaluated through several projects and hence announced its plans to amplify the production of coal-to-DME through extensive blending. Furthermore, Pertamina, a leading company partnered with Bukit Asam and Air Products to produce high-value products, including dimethyl ether in large capacities. The joint venture will focus on developing a coal gasification project, which will involve synthetic natural gas (SNG) and DME for commercial and domestic consumption. The collaboration will include the market study of this chemical for domestic and commercial applications, discovering its employment as a heating fuel for domestic purposes.
Strict Regulations to Inhibit Market Growth
The International Organization for Standardization has implemented several guidelines for the consumption of DME, which, in turn, can restrict the growth of the market during the forecast period. Companies are engaging in the manufacturing, mixing, and distributing of this bulk chemical in China without following the regulatory protocols. The collaboration of DME producers with manufacturers of valves, seals, and cylinders with a single standard for LPG and DME blends can dampen the dimethyl ether market growth. The cylinder, storage, and percentages of DME used in those blends require strict regulations for safety and handling procedures, which can restrict the dimethyl ether market share.

LPG Blending to Hold the Largest Share
Based on application, the market is divided into LPG blending, aerosol propellant, transportation fuel, and others. LPG blending is expected to account for the lion’s share during the forecast period. Low-emission and sustainability of LPG blending will boost the segment’s growth. This chemical can be produced through biomass, waste from pulp and paper plants, forest products, agricultural by-products, construction waste, and fuel crops. DME can also be derived directly from synthesis gas such as coal or biomass gasification, or natural gas reforming.
Geographically, the market is classified into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East, and Africa.
Flourishing Shipping Industry to Promote Growth in North America
- The booming agriculture, shipping, and construction industries will spur demand for dimethyl ether in North America.
- High consumption and production of DME in China, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, and India will push the growth of the Asia Pacific market.
- Europe is predicted to experience a substantial growth rate during the forecast period owing to the rapid advancements in the automotive sector.
