Pyridine is a primary heterocyclic organic compound with the chemical formula C5H5N. It is structurally related to benzene, with one methine group (=CH−) replaced by a nitrogen atom. It is a highly flammable, weakly alkaline, water-soluble liquid with a distinctive, unpleasant fish-like smell. Pyridine is colorless, but older or impure samples can appear yellow. The pyridine ring occurs in many important compounds, including agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, and vitamins. Pyridine derivatives have moderate to excellent activities against several biological targets. With changing substituents on the pyridine nucleus, the biological targets vary from microbial diseased to viral problems and various cancerous cells. Historically, pyridine was produced from coal tar or obtained as a byproduct of coal gasification. Nowadays, most pyridine is produced synthetically using various named reactions like Chichibabin Synthesis, Bonnemann Cyclization, and Dealkylation of alkyl pyridines.  Today it is synthesized on a scale of about 20,000 tonnes per year worldwide.

Market Dynamics

The growing awareness of synthetic chemistry primarily drives the global market for Pyridine, and it is considered a prerequisite to modern society. Synthetic chemistry enables the production of the desired quantities of fertilizers, and it has a significant impact on public health, where treatments for almost any disease can be developed. Pyridine is one of the vital components of encircling synthetic chemistry when it comes to varied applications. Pyridine ring is utilized in many pharmaceuticals actives and agrochemicals products, and this can be rationalized by the fact that simple pyridines readily undergo metabolism via oxidation of methylation pathways. One of the other important drivers for the Pyridine market can be seen as the safe use of pyridine as a food additive. According to as confirmed by the U.S Food and Drug Association, pyridine possesses slight risk when added in the required limited amount. However, some petitions have been listed saying cancer-causing properties while using Pyridine. Many Pyridine derivatives have various applications in the Biological field, which is further set to drive the market in the forecasted years. For instance, di-acyl hydrazine and acyl(arylsulfonyl)hydrazine possess significant antibacterial activities against gram-negative bacteria E.Coli and gram-positive bacteria S.albus as compared to started drug streptomycin sulphate.

Moreover, pyridine derivates are used as the starting raw materials of various chemically significant products. Additionally, Pyridine is used as a pesticide and fungicide, which is a substantial factor in its market growth in the coming years. Further, pyridine is seen as a denaturant in antifreeze, which is expected to open a lucrative market ahead in the forecasted years.

However, one of the major restraints that can be seen in the global market of Pyridine is the various rules and regulations imposed by various government agencies. Pyridine is harmful if inhaled, swallowed, or absorbed through the skin. Minor amounts of pyridine are released in the environment from some industrial processes. According to a study by the U.S National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, about 43,000 Americans work in contact with pyridines, which is harmful.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19affected the global economy in many forms, such as supply chain distraction, directly affecting demand and production as well as financial impact. COVID-19 pandemic has highly affected the Global Hydrogenated Styrene Block Copolymers Market. Chemical industries have been moderately impacted by the outbreak of COVID-19 across the globe. Halted or slowdown in activities, movement restriction, shortage of labor as a result of measures to contain the COVID-19 outbreak have restrained the growth of the chemical industry, which, in turn, are anticipated to hamper the demand for HSBC. Furthermore, Workforces are facing the risk of infection, and governments are beginning to enact restrictions on movement and both add an unpredictable dimension to the crisis.

Segment Analysis

By Type, the Pyridine market is segmented into Pyridine N-Oxide, Alpha Picoline, Beta Picoline, Gamma Picoline, 2-Methyl-5-Ethylpyridine (MEP), and others. Alpha picoline currently holds a significant share in the pyridine market globally. One of its most extensive applications is in manufacturing vinyl pyridine latex, which is used as an intermediate in various industries like agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, dye, and photo industries. It also finds its applications in pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals in the manufacturing of drugs such as Nalidixic acid. Beta Picoline is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the forecasted years due to its applications in significant industrial segments. For instance, in the making of Polyimide films, in manufacturing of Vitamin B3, which has applications as animal feed and various agrochemicals as Chlorpyrifos, Haloxyfop, and Fluazifop Butyl.

By End Users, the Global Pyridine market is bifurcated into Pharmaceuticals, Agrochemicals, Chemicals, Food, and others. The pharmaceuticals segment is majorly responsible for the lucrative market for pyridine. In the pharmaceutical industry, pyridine forms the nucleus of over 7000 existing drugs. Pyridine is found to have many biological activities that make the pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals industry drive the market. For instance, pyridine epothilones exhibit cytotoxic properties against several human cancer cell lines. It has important applications, including antiviral, antimicrobial, antidiabetic, antitubercular, and many more.
