Introduction to the Fatty Amides Market

Fatty amides are derived from fatty acids such as erucic acid, stearic acid and oleic acid. Primary fatty amides such as erucamide, oleamide, stearamide and behenamide are widely used as slip agents and anti-blocking agents by polyolefin film processing industries.

Erucamide is a primary amide and is synthesized by reacting erucic acid with gaseous ammonia. Erucamide is considered as a slip agent for polyolefin film processing due to its ability to reduce the value of COF (Coefficient of Friction) on the film surface.

Oleamide is used as a dispersing agent in printing ink and dyes. Furthermore, it has also found wide application in the manufacture of polyolefin films, which can be used for food packaging. Stearamide and behenamide are used in combination with erucamide as an anti-blocking agent in polyolefin film processing. The global market of fatty amides is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.0% in terms of value in the upcoming year.
