Increasing demand for pyrrolidone in desulfurization of gases and agrochemicals in petrochemical processing applications is driving the growth of the pyrrolidone market. Demand for pyrrolidone has increased in the market due to its hygroscopic property, which helps in dehumidifying liquids. Additionally, the agrochemicals segment is expected to boost the pyrrolidone market. Pyrrolidone is employed in the manufacture of pesticide, which is used as an intermediate in the agricultural sector. Considering the factors mentioned above, demand for pyrrolidone is anticipated to rise significantly, especially in the U.S and Asia Pacific. However, potential side effects of pyrrolidone and strict regulations may hamper market growth in the next few years.

N-Methylpyrrolidone is used on a large scale in various applications. It accounted for over 70% share of the global pyrrolidone market in 2013. N-Methylpyrrolidone is used as an extraction solvent in lube oil processing, natural and synthetic gas purification and as decolorizing agent for oils and waxes. The market for N-Vinylpyrrolidone is expected to experience significant growth in the next few years. It is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period due to high demand in the end-user industries. Demand for pyrrolidone is likely to rise in the near future led by growth in the usage of 2-Pyrrolidone and N-Octylpyrrolidone.
