US amine demand will grow three percent annually through 2010. Growth will be driven by new applications (e.g., wood preservatives), fast-growing niches (e.g., glyphosate herbicides) and higher surfactant loadings in detergents and personal care products. Ethanolamines -- the largest type by volume -- will continue to show the fastest growth.
This study analyzes the $2.3 billion US amine industry. It presents historical demand data for 1995, 2000 and 2005 and forecasts to 2010 and 2015 by amine product (e.g., ethanolamines, alkylamines, fatty amines, specialty amines, ethyleneamines) and by market (e.g., detergents and cleaning products, agricultural chemicals, personal care products).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 27 leading industry players including Akzo Nobel, BASF, DuPont, Ineos, and Proctor & Gamble.
