  • Asia-Pacific region dominated the global market. With the growing demand for herbicides to increase agricultural productivity in countries, such as China and India, the usage of diethanolamine is likely to increase in the region.
  • Total agricultural exports from India witnessed a CAGR of 16.45% over 2010-2018 to touch USD 38.21 billion in FY18. India is also the largest producer, exporter, and consumer of spices and spice products whose exports reached USD 3.1 billion in 2017-18. Moreover, the Asia-Pacific region is also projected to register the highest CAGR during the estimated period.
  • Another prominent industry, which is likely to boost the DEA market, is construction; with the increase in constructional activities in India and China, the consumption of DEA in paints and coatings is projected to increase. To cater to this demand, many major companies in the market have increased their production capacities in the recent past.
  • The global cosmetics market, which consumes DEA in producing various skincare-related products, witnessed a steady CAGR of 4.3% and is expected to reach USD 450 billion in 2025. This will lead India to become one of the top five global markets, with a contribution of 5% of the total global cosmetics market by 2025.
  • All the aforementioned factors are expected to drive the demand for the diethanolamine, during the forecast period.
