Navigating the Dimethyl Sulfate Market: Understanding Price Trends

In the first quarter of 2023, the dimethyl sulfate price trends in Asia was influenced by decreased demand from pesticide and dye sectors, and subdued purchasing interest from Asian and European buyers. The second quarter saw a decline in dimethyl sulfate prices due to inexpensive imports, lowered energy and freight costs, and weakened downstream industry demand. Similarly, in Europe, the price trend dropped due to decreased downstream industry procurement and an inflation-driven market downturn. In North America, slow downstream industry movement, reduced consumption, and increased imports led to weakened demand and higher inventories, causing dimethyl sulfate prices to decrease over both quarters.


Dimethyl sulfate (DMS) is a reactive and highly toxic chemical compound with (CH3O)2SO2 formula. It’s a colorless liquid with a strong odor. It’s used as a methylating agent in organic synthesis. However, it’s highly hazardous, causing severe skin and respiratory irritation, and is considered carcinogenic and mutagenic. Its reactivity and toxic nature limit its industrial use.

Industrial Uses Impacting the Dimethyl Sulfate Price Trends:

Dimethyl sulfate (DMS) has been historically employed in limited industrial applications due to its extreme toxicity. Primarily used as a methylating agent in organic synthesis, it modifies compounds in processes such as pharmaceutical and dye production. However, its hazardous nature and health risks have led to reduced usage. DMS has found limited application in chemical research, where its reactivity plays a role. Despite its potential in certain reactions, its high toxicity has prompted industries to seek safer alternatives. Regulatory restrictions and safety concerns have significantly curtailed its industrial use in favor of compounds that pose fewer risks to human health and the environment.
