Dec 2020. Dimethylformamide (DMF) is a clear, colorless, water-soluble liquid that is used primarily as a dipolar aprotic solvent. DMF is miscible with water in all proportions and is a powerful solvent for a variety of organic, inorganic, and resin products. 

During 2020–25, global DMF consumption is expected to recover slightly from the decline in 2020, but growth will be slow. Demand for DMF for polyurethane synthetic leather, which is the largest application in mainland China, will decline as environmental and legislative pressure force the industry to consider alternatives. Other applications, where alternative solvents are not easily interchangeable, will continue to grow, such as electronics, which is expected to recover significantly as the industry recovers from the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic. The global capacity in 2020 is more than sufficient to meet world demand for the next five years. However, it is possible that several older and less efficient plants will be shut down, helping producers achieve better profit margins.
