There are two production routing for acetonitrile: byproduct of acrylonitrile and acetic acid ammonolysis. Byproduct of acrylonitrile is the most import production method of acetonitrile, but the production volume depend on the demand of acrylonitrile. Acetic acid ammonolysis method does not have this problem, but the cost of this method is higher than that of byproduct of acrylonitrile.
