Across the globe, in 2017, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region held the dominating revenue share of more than 70.0% in the methylene chloride market. This was due to the growing production of chemicals, surging population, and expanding infrastructure domain here.

Apart from being the largest consumer, APAC is also the largest producer of methylene chloride. Governments of various countries, particularly Europe, have formulated strict environment regulations prohibiting the use of the compound in paint stripper application, due to which many producers have shifted their base to APAC.
