2-Methylfuran Market is poised to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% over 2023-2029. 2-Methylfuran is a chemical compound that is a flammable, water-insoluble liquid with a chocolate odor, found naturally in Myrtle and Dutch Lavender with various industrial applications, and is used as a precursor or intermediate in the synthesis of other chemicals. The rising application in the pharmaceutical industry as an intermediate for the synthesis of vitamin B, chloroquine phosphate, primary chloroquine phosphate, and other drugs drives the 2-Methylfuran market. The increased sales of pharmaceutical products are also anticipated to propel the market during the forecast period. For instance, according to research conducted, in 2017 pharmaceutical market revenue was USD 1,143 billion and will reach almost USD 1,462 billion in 2021.

Furthermore, the growth of various chemical industries that use 2-methylfuran as a precursor in the synthesis of various chemicals is anticipated to experience a surge in the future. Additionally, in the area of 2-methylfuran, there are opportunities for research and development to find new uses and enhance manufacturing procedures, possibly leading to more affordable procedures and wider market penetration. Compliance with regulations related to environmental protection and chemical safety in various chemical, agronomic, and pharmaceutical industry manufacturers to increase sales among environmentally conscious customers is currently becoming popular in the market. But, the constant fluctuation in the feedstock availability and market demand along with disruptions in the supply chain, such as disruptions in raw material availability or transportation is anticipated to hinder the market growth. However, the growing demand for bio-based and sustainable chemicals, the emergence of new companies involved in the production, distribution, and sale of 2-methylfuran, the increase in disposable income, and the technological advancement are anticipated to burgeon the market growth during the forecast period.
