Amines are used as corrosion resistant in petroleum industry, construction industry and chemical-manufacturing industry and in engineering tools manufacture. In pharmaceutical industry they are used in antibiotics, CNS drugs, antithelmintics, antifungals and neoplastic chemotherapy. They are also used in cosmetics and toiletries industries to manufacture fabric softeners, personal-care products, textile manufacturing, gas treatment and dishwater detergents. They are also used as color reprography, dyes and in agrochemicals.
The major products of amines are ethanolamines, alkylamines, fatty amines, specialty amines and ethyleneamines. Out of these products, ethylamine accounts for the greatest share as it has large variety of applications in agrochemicals, plastics, dyes, rubber industry and textiles. The demand for fatty amines is running high owing to its increasing applications.
One of the major drivers is the growth in the end user industries such as construction industry and chemical-manufacturing industry as amines are used in making paints and corrosion resistant paints. The growth of agriculture industry would increase the demand for agrochemicals and so would be driver for amines market. One of the major challenge this market is facing is the volatile prices of raw materials. The usage of amines is accompanied by harmful environmental effects, hence stricter environmental regulations would reduce the consumption and production of amines, which is a threat to this market.
The leading manufacturers of amines globally are BASF, DOW chemicals, Sinopec, DuPont, Huntsman, Chemutra Corporation, Akzo Nobel and Arkema.
