Dibasic esters, also known as DBEs, are the refined dimethyl esters formulated by varying the composition of adipic acid, glutaric acid and succinic acid. The primarily produced dibasic ester is further distilled to produce the dibasic ester specialty fractions designated as DBE-2, DBE-3, DBE-4, DBE-5, DBE-6 and DBE-9. The physical characteristics of dibasic ester include clear, colorless liquid with a mild odor. The dibasic ester is not readily miscible in water and higher paraffins while showing ready miscibility towards hydrocarbons such alcohols, ethers and ketones. On a chemical front, dibasic ester is non-flammable and non-corrosive. The dibasic ester is also biodegradable product making it an environmental friendly alternative in several applications.
Dibasic Ester Market: Dynamics
The growth witnessed by the coil & can coatings market is expected to have a direct impact on the dibasic ester market given its ability to enhance the flexibility and adhesion of the coatings. Dibasic ester is also noted to potentially act as a substitute of isophorone, propylene glycol ether and more compounds used in such applications. Isophorone is also used as a solvent in the ink industry and is widely studied to be a toxic solvent. Dibasic ester can also potentially replace isophorone in ink manufacturing applications. The increasing demand for food requires the large scale consumption of insecticides and pesticides. Dibasic ester is used in production of some of the raw materials of pesticides. The increasing production of pesticides and insecticides creates an opportunity for the dibasic ester manufacturers and is expected to act as a driving factor in the market.
The presence of dimethyl succinate in the formulation of dibasic ester is noted to be a matter of concern among the dibasic ester producers. This is due to the hazardous nature of dimethyl succinate leading to the continuous monitoring of the chemical by environmental authorities. This is noted to have a moderately restricting impact on the global dibasic ester market owing to the varying stringency of policies across geographies along with the development of environment friendly formulations of dibasic ester products. Alongside, dibasic ester is also studied to cause VOC emissions up to a minor extent. With the existing laws surrounding the VOC emissions, this can have a significant impact on the market further propelling the market towards product development.
