Amines

As Quoted In Investorideas.com

Demand will be driven by greater amounts of amine-based pesticides used in agriculture, rising demand for natural gas power generation, and growing construction activity that benefits amines used in adhesives.

US demand to rise 2.1% annually through 2019

US demand for amines will expand 2.1 percent per year to 3.2 billion pounds in 2019, valued at $3.8 billion. The growing use of pesticide-resistant crops will drive amine demand in agricultural chemicals as greater amounts of glyphosate and other amine-based pesticides are applied. Ethanolamines and specialty amines will benefit from rising demand for natural gas as power generation companies continue to replace coal-fired power plants with more efficient natural gas burning plants.

Rising construction activity will also help drive strong demand for polyether-amines, as well as other amines used in adhesives. However, the use of amines in wood treatment chemicals will not recover significantly as consumers shift to wood-alternative decking, and as treated wood producers increasingly turn to micronized and non-metal-based preservatives that are not formulated with amines. Additionally, growth will be limited by the maturity of some of the largest markets for amines, such as cleaning products and personal care products.

Agricultural chemicals to remain key market

Amine demand in agricultural chemicals has expanded rapidly in recent years as the widespread planting of glyphosate-resistant crops resulted in robust growth in the herbicide’s demand, and as Monsanto (the sole US producer of glyphosate) chose to pursue market share in 2010 by cutting prices. More recently, growing weed resistance to glyphosate, both in the US and abroad, has continued to drive amine demand for glyphosate as farmers have increased usage to maintain weed control. Agricultural companies have also responded by developing new varieties of corn and soybeans resistant to other herbicides beyond glyphosate, including the well-known herbicides 2,4-D and dicamba. Increased use of these crops going forward will drive growth in amine demand as farmers increase their herbicide use on crops containing the new genes.

Polyetheramines to be fastest growing product

Robust growth in building construction will help boost the production of coatings and adhesives, benefiting most of the commodity amines. Polyetheramines, which have found growing use in adhesives and advanced composites, will be among the biggest beneficiaries and will achieve the fastest growth of all amine types. However, rapid consumer adoption of wood-alternative decking options will limit demand for amines in wood preservatives. Additionally, an industry shift toward non-metal-based and micronized preservatives, which do not require amines in their formulations, will further restrain amine demand.

Study coverage

This Freedonia industry study analyzes the 2.9 billion pound US amines industry. It presents historical demand data (2004, 2009 and 2014) and forecasts (2019 and 2024) by product (e.g., ethanolamines, alkylamines, fatty amines, specialty amines, ethyleneamines, polyetheramines) and market (e.g., agricultural chemicals, cleaning products, personal care products, water treatment, natural gas processing, petroleum). The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 27 industry players, including Eastman Chemical, Dow Chemical, and Huntsman.
