Market Dynamic


Amines are used in various end-use products, including personal care products, water treatment, agricultural chemicals, cement and cleaning products, gas treatment, textiles, and wood treatment, as corrosion inhibitors, intermediates, activators, neutralizing agents, formulators, and chelating agents. Medicines, paint & coatings, and petroleum. The consumption of amines has increased over the past few years due to development in application sectors such as water treatment, agriculture, oil, and personal care. This trend is anticipated to continue throughout the forecast period.


Margin is being squeezed by fluctuating raw material costs for amine production. The cost structure of manufactured items is significantly influenced by resource pricing and availability for amine producers. Acetone, ethylene oxide, ammonia, ethanol, refined petroleum products, and butyl alcohol are the primary raw ingredients utilized to create amines. Since most of these goods are petroleum derivatives, they are susceptible to changes in product prices.

Various products, including crop protection agents and surfactants, are made using bio-based amines to counteract the harmful impacts of greenhouse gas emissions. The real benefit of bio-based amines is that they are not heavily dependent on petroleum-based supplies.

COVID-19 Impact

Due to supply chain disruptions and a drop in consumer demand, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic crisis has hugely impacted the world economy and industrial sector.

The amines market is still the same. The market’s growth rate in 2020 has been impacted by decreased demand from end-use industries like MDI, plastic, polymer, and rubber, among others. On the other hand, the medicines industry continued to thrive because it was mostly immune from strict lock-down scenarios.

Segment-Wise Analysis

Why is the amine market expected to have the greatest CAGR, and why would crop protection be essential?

Amines are ideally suited for usage as intermediates in producing a wide range of goods, including agrochemicals and pesticides, thanks to their outstanding solvency. It is anticipated that rising industrialization would increase product demand for chemical production and the chemical industry’s rapid global expansion. Throughout the forecast period, the market for amines is anticipated to rise faster due to the increasing rate at which improved agricultural techniques involving agrochemicals, such as pesticides and fertilizers, are being used.

Why is it anticipated that the Water Treatment segment will grow quickly throughout the projected period?

With an expanding population, there is a growing need for purified water. It is a key driver of the amine business, which is still being used extensively for water treatment. When seen from a macro perspective, the effects of different businesses on water use have brazenly exposed the growing concern that water discharged from industrial activities directly affects natural water supplies.

Countries are becoming more concerned about the negative impacts of water contamination due to pollutants, including heavy metals and organic debris. It has led to significant financial investment in lowering the effects of discharged water on the environment and people. Amines are efficient biocides that eliminate aquatic microorganisms. Thus, the demand for amines is anticipated to increase shortly due to the increased awareness of the use of treated water worldwide.

Region-Wise Analysis

The regions analyzed for the market include North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.

  • Asia Pacific led the global amines market in 2021 with a value of over USD 5 billion and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.2% over the forecast period. It also holds 55.4% of the global market. The increased product demand from agrochemical manufacturing applications is primarily responsible for this high growth rate.
  • Growing demand for various amines, such as diethanolamines, which are used to make glyphosate, a substance that enhances the effectiveness of herbicides, is projected to fuel market expansion in the area. Farmers’ awareness of the need to maximize crop production on the existing arable land and their growing adoption of new farming techniques will further increase demand for agricultural products.
  • One of the world’s top manufacturers and users of amines, particularly aromatic amines, is the United States. It increases with a CAGR of 4.0%. The market for amines has benefited from rising auto demand, propelling polyurethane sales.
