[Online Quarterly Update] Pyridine witnessed a commendable demand in 2019 and is anticipated to achieve an impressive CAGR of 4.95% during the forecast period. Pyridine is a toxic and flammable compound with a strong odor, exhibiting high solubility in water and other organic solvents. As Pyridine is available in limited quantity in its natural form, it is commercially manufactured by a synthetic process utilizing ammonia and acetaldehyde as raw materials. Pyridine derivatives are widely utilized in agriculture industry for manufacturing of agrochemicals such as herbicides, and pesticides. In addition, increasing usage of Pyridine as beta Picoline in Pharmaceutical industry to produce vitamin B3, a nutritious additive for food and beverage industry, is anticipated to drive the demand for the product in the forecast period. The onset of Coronavirus in the final quarter of FY 20 has further spurred the demand for Pyridine in the Pharmaceutical industry as people are reluctant to look for nutritious products to boost their immunity as a preventive measure for virus. In addition, the demand for Pyridine as a denaturing agent in antifreeze mixture owing to its superior chemical functionality is expected to propel as a potential segment in the growth of Global Pyridine Market.
Pyridine is mainly manufactured by synthesis reactions like Bonnemann cyclization, Chichibabin synthesis and Cobalt-catalyzed alkyne-nitrile cyclomerizing. Continuous innovations are being done by manufacturing companies to enhance the chemical functionalities of Pyridine in order to boost the demand for its derivatives in various end-user industries. Vertellus Specialties, Jubilant Life Sciences and Red Sun Group are the companies accounting for more than half of the Pyridine production capacity in the Global market. In recent years there have been no capacity additions in the Global Pyridine market due to low fluctuations in the market dynamics of the products.   
The Global Pyridine market is anticipated to witness a healthy growth with majority of the consumption share coming from Asia Pacific (APAC) Region owing to rapidly expanding pharmaceutical sector along with large number of manufacturing plants. APAC is the global production hub for Pyridine, hence, China followed by India is the largest producer and consumer of Pyridine. The consumption of Pyridine in APAC region is expected to spur in the coming years under plans of capacity expansions of derivative, niacinamide in China. Moreover, Europe is likely to witness substantial increase in demand, owing to the rising interest of companies to uphold the growing market of pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals.

Prices of Pyridine witnessed an incredible upsurge in 2019 due to high demand for pesticides and herbicides in agriculture sector for various crop rotation practices. Moreover, outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has surged the demand for Pyridine as an active initiator in the production of drug. However, reduced prices of feedstock Acetaldehyde on unprecedented dive in crude oil value has kept the prices of Pyridine in the lower front despite of its high demand. Low feedstock prices have caused Pyridine CFR China price to plummet between USD XX/MT to USD XX/MT. Similarly, Pyridine prices in Europe and the America have weakened significantly. Prices in the international market are likely to recover at the beginning of FY 21 on improvement over the crude value.
To extract data for Global Pyridine market, primary research surveys were conducted with Pyridine manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, wholesalers and end users. While interviewing, the respondents were also inquired about their competitors. Through this technique, ChemAnalyst was able to include manufacturers that could not be identified due to the limitations of secondary research. Moreover, ChemAnalyst analyzed various end user segments and projected a positive outlook for Global Pyridine market over the coming years. 
ChemAnalyst calculated Pyridine global demand by analyzing the historical data and demand forecast was carried out considering Acetaldehyde and Ammonia prices. ChemAnalyst sourced these values from industry experts and company representatives and externally validated through analyzing historical sales data of respective manufacturers to arrive at the overall market size. Various secondary sources such as company websites, association reports, annual reports, etc., were also studied by ChemAnalyst.
