According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Growing consumption in petrochemicals industry. Although pyrrolidones are used in a diversified range of industries, it is extensively used in the petrochemicals industry. N-methylpyrrolidone, a pyrrolidone derivative, is used as an extraction medium in petrochemicals industry to extract natural gas from a mixture of crude oil or gas. Natural gas is an efficient fuel, which provides a cleaner alternative to coal and other fossil fuels resulting in lowering the carbon and other harmful emissions. With the rising demand for natural gas in developing nations as well as developed nations, the consumption of pyrrolidone will increase at a significant rate.


Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Increasing usage of substitutes. The global pyrrolidone market is facing a threat due to the presence of substitutes such as ethylene glycol, toluene, benzene, isophorone, and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). Among these, polyacrylamides are used in the hydrocarbons recovery. Partially hydrolyzed polyacrylamide, as well as polyacrylamidebased gels, is used in the hydrocarbons production at a large scale. Also, DMSO is among the important solvents owing its excellent solvency and solubility in both polar and non-polar compounds.


The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
