Pyridine is a clear liquid with an unpleasant odor. It is simple heterocyclic aromatic compound with structure related to benzene and possess a CH group in the benzene ring replaced by a nitrogen atom. Moreover, the pyridine ring is generally found in many different compounds such as azines, niacin, vitamins, and pyridoxine. Initially, pyridine was derived from coal tar and obtained as a byproduct of coal gasification, but the process was very expensive and inefficient. Currently, pyridine and its derivatives are manufactured synthetically. It is miscible with water and other organic solvents which find extensive use in numerous end use industries such as agrochemical, food beverage, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and others.
Some of the prominent factors that positively influence the growth of the pyridine market are growing disposable income, rapid urbanization, and improved living standards. Additionally, increasing use of pharmaceuticals has led to an increase in the demand for pyridine globally. Moreover, continuous growth of electronics industry along with wide utilization of pyridine in development of mobile and other electronic product is expected to fuel the growth of the market over the forecast period. Growing demand for pesticide and insecticide combined with the rising need of high quality crop production is estimated to propel the market growth. However, increasing concern regarding the harmful effect of pyridine is expected to hinder the market growth.
