Key Market Trends

Ethylenediamine Type to Dominate the Market

  • Ethylenediamine (EDA) is one of the major derivatives of ethyleneamines, and it accounted for the largest share of the ethyleneamines market. It is a clear, colorless, single-component product and is the lowest molecular weight ethyleneamine manufactured.
  • Some of the applications of ethylenediamine include - agricultural chemicals, chelating agents, corrosion inhibitors, ethylene urea resins, ion exchange resins, lubricants for thermoplastic resin, oil additives, polyamide resins, reforming agents for soils, elastomeric fibers, rubber chemicals, surface-active agents, and fungicides.
  • Additionally, ethylenediamine is used as an intermediate during the manufacturing of tetraacetyl ethylenediamine (TAED), which is a bleaching activator used in detergents and additives for laundry washing and dishwashing.
  • Ethylenediamine chemical is strongly alkaline and is miscible with both water and alcohol. It is air sensitive, hygroscopic (tends to absorb moisture from the air) and also absorbs carbon dioxide from the air. It is incompatible with phosphorus halides, strong acids, aldehydes, oxidizing agents, organic halides, copper and its alloys, etc.
  • Ethylenediamine is manufactured by reacting monoethanolamine (MEA) with anhydrous ammonia in the presence of a catalyst, followed by separation of the products.
  • Hence, with the growing demand from various applications, the demand for ethylenediamine is expected to considerably increase over the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market

  • With over 50% of the global demand, Asia-Pacific is the most promising market for ethyleneamines, which is likely to dominate the market in the near future. This domination can be attributed to the growing demand for agro chemicals and adhesives and sealants in the region.
  • China and India account for over 75% of the demand for ethyleneamines and China is the major shareholder in creating the market demand for ethyleneamines in this region. Ethyleneamines are required in a large number of industries in China, including personal care, textile, adhesives and paints, automotive, and several others.
  • China has the world's largest automotive market, in terms of production. This is likely to boost the demand for ethyleneamines, owing to its requirement as a fuel additive.
  • The country has achieved some milestones in shale gas exploration, both, incapacity and drilling techniques. The above factor makes the country one of the top shale gas suppliers, worldwide. This, in turn, increased the demand for ethyleneamines from the oil and gas sector in the country, owing to its requirement during the refining processes.
  • In addition to this, the pharmaceutical industry in the country is expected to witness a rapid growth, which is likely to augment the demand for ethyleneamines from the sector, owing to its requirement as a raw material.
  • Overall, with the consistent growth in countries, like China, India, and Japan, the demand for ethyleneamines is expected to increase at a faster pace overall in the region, in the coming years. The huge growth of Asia-Pacific is quite instrumental in the expansion of the global ethyleneamines market.
