The nitrogen-based derivatives of fatty acids or olefins, simply known as fatty amines, are often derived from oils, petrochemicals, fats, and similar raw materials. Applications of fatty amines in various end-use industries solely depend on their cationic nature. Fabric softening, corrosion inhibition, organoclay, lubricant additives, and sanitization are a few of the most prominent applications, which demand fatty amines. Other popular applications include water treatment, anti-caking, mining, paints and coatings, personal care, oilfield chemicals, and agro-chemicals.
By the end of 2016, the industrial consumption of fatty amines on a global level is projected to reach 641 Kilo Tonnes. In terms of revenues, the global fatty amines market is expected to expand at a moderate CAGR of 4.1% over a four-year forecast period 2016-2020, reaching a value beyond US$ 2 Bn in 2020.
The global market for fatty amines is expected to be primarily driven by the burgeoning demand for agro-chemicals and asphalt-additives. In addition, the rapidly thriving water treatment chemicals industry is also fueling the demand for fatty amines since the recent past. These two will remain the key factors sustaining the market for fatty amines on a global level, during 2016-2020. The industry has been witnessing widening application base since the past few years, which will continue to push the global fatty amines market growth further over the forecast period. Technological innovation and development of novel applications will be another important factor raising significant demand from the verticals, such as mining, fabric conditioning, paints and coatings, and detergents, over the next few years. Rising global population, followed by the growing demand for agricultural products, will foster the demand for agro-chemicals based on fatty amines. Developing economies are expected to be the key markets for fatty amines over the forecast period. Significant consumption of fatty amines in the paints and coatings industry will continue to register steady demand by 2020. Other industries wherein paints and industrial coatings are widely used, such as construction and automotive, will also raise notable demand for fatty amines.
However, uncertain raw material pricing and fluctuating availability of fatty amines will continue to pose a negative impact on the global fatty amines market over 2016-2020.
The global fatty amines market is segmented on the basis of product type and application. By product type, there are three key segments viz. primary fatty amines, secondary fatty amines, and tertiary fatty amines. Among the three segments, tertiary fatty amines will continue to represent the largest market segment with over 46% revenue share in 2020; however, the growth estimated throughout the forecast period is sluggish at a CAGR of 3.6%. By 2020 end, this segment is likely to account for over US$ 1.0 Bn in terms of revenues. Primary fatty amines segment will witness a higher CAGR of 4.9%. With steady growth over 2016-2020, this segment is expected to capture over 30% market share in 2020.
By application, the global fatty amines market is segmented into water treatment, agro-chemicals, oilfield chemicals, asphalt additives, anti-caking, and others. Water treatment and agro-chemicals segments will continue to be the major segments over the forecast period, followed by asphalt additives and oilfield chemicals segments. Fabric softener, personal care, and mining are likely to create lucrative opportunities within the ‘others’ segment.
On the basis of geography, the global fatty amines market is predicted to remain dominant in Asia Pacific. With around 30% share of the entire market revenues in 2020, the fatty amines market in APAC is expected to expand at a CAGR of 3.6% over 2016-2020. North America, another major market, is foreseen to witness a slightly higher CAGR of 4.0% during the forecast period. With a consistently growing Y-o-Y % each year over 2016-2020, the market in North America will account for over 19% share of the global market revenues in 2020.
