Global Dimer Fatty Acid Market Size Analysis

According to a research survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, in 2022, the Global Dimer Fatty Acid Market was worth US$ 612.4  Mn and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.0% over the forecast period. While the historical CAGR is 4.2%, the market is expected to hit US$ 997.5 Mn by 2032 end.

Unsaturated fatty acids are dimerized to create dimer acids, also known as dimerized fatty acids, which are dicarboxylic. These unsaturated fatty acids are made from fatty acid feedstock, which includes oils like rapeseed, tall, and fat. A crude dimer is created from elevated oil fatty acid through heat treatment, either with or without the aid of an appropriate catalyst. Due to the reactivity of its di-carboxylic acid, they serve as the foundation for numerous end products.

Dimeric acids, also known as C36 dimer acids, typically contain stearic acids. This dimer acid chemistry can also produce trimeric acid, which is made up of three fatty acid molecules. Dimer acids are translucent, viscous liquids with a pale yellow hue with no hazardous properties.

Market Dynamic


The growing number of drilling operations in various locations to meet the rising energy demand is expected to increase the global market for oilfield chemicals. Additionally, the global dimer fatty acid market is expanding significantly due to cosmetics use worldwide. The primary factor driving the global market is the growing number of applications for dimer fatty acids.

Consequently, the dimer fatty acid market is expanding its operations on the global market. Additionally, the worldwide industry is trying to penetrate all isolated regions.


The growing usage of unsaturated fatty acids to manufacture biofuels and the scarcity of raw materials could hinder the global dimer acid market. A lack of consumer knowledge could also present difficulties for the worldwide market. As a result, the main international players have taken these restrictions seriously and changed their strategies. Additionally, it has attempted to foster the expansion of the world market.
