Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Ethylamine Market size is expected to cross USD 3.8 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of ethylamine was over USD 2.1 Billion.  Ethylamine is pivotal in manufacturing pesticides, rubber chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. Its significance lies in being a foundational element for these diverse chemical compounds. The escalating demand for these end products directly propels the expansion of the market. As ethylamine serves as a primary building block in their production any increase in the demand for pesticides, rubber-related chemicals, or pharmaceuticals subsequently augments the need for ethylamine. Around 1.8 billion people are estimated globally to be engaged in agriculture and the vast majority of this population uses pesticides, protecting foodstuffs and commercial products. This interdependency between ethylamine and the final products contributes to foster the continual growth and sustenance of the ethylamine market.

Furthermore, Ethylamine derivatives are utilized in the textile industry for applications like dyeing and finishing processes, imparting specific properties to fabrics and enhancing their performance. For instance, cotton when treated with anhydrous ethylamine helps the material to hold its lustre for longer in comparison to normal. This has exponentially increased the use of ethylamine in the textile industry propelling the market’s growth.

Ethylamine Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Demand for better food quality- Food Safety and quality are some of the main concerns of consumers and health agencies around the world the current lifestyle and market globalization have led to an increase in demand of higher food. The use of high-grade ethylamine leads to an increase in a higher quality of food faster. As estimated by the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) an increase of around 60% more food production will be needed by 2050 and this will ultimately lead to an increase in the ethylamine market.
  • Rising Use in the agricultural sector - considering its significance as a raw ingredient in the manufacture of herbicides like atrazine, simazine, and cyanazine, ethylene is driven by the expansion of the agrochemicals market. Herbicide use has increased recently as a result of farmers all over the world relying more and more on chemicals during the last ten years to enhance yields. The demand for regulators in agricultural production has increased as a result of the introduction of new technology into the agricultural sector. As a result, ethylamine is being used more frequently to speed up agricultural output.
  • Increase in Research & Development- Ongoing research and development activities continuously explore new applications and derivatives of ethylamine, expanding its market potential in various industries, such as coatings, textiles, and personal care products.
  • Rising Population- The global population’s expansion leads to increased demand for various goods, including pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and other products reliant on ethylamine, further propelling its market growth.


  • Increased awareness of Organic Food Products - The goal of an organic farming system is to minimize the use of artificially compounded fertilizers, herbicides, and other inputs. Instead, the system relies on crop rotation, animal manure, legumes, green manure, and other inputs. As consumer awareness of the potential dangers of chemicals like ethylamine grows, so does the sales of the products.  Organic cultivation currently accounts for only 1.6 percent of the world's agricultural land, but many countries have much higher shares. In 2021, organic management accounted for 10% or more of all agricultural land in 20 countries, compared to 18 countries in 2020.
  • Exothermic nature of ethylamine during production is a limiting factor for the ethylamine market growth.
  • High cost of raw materials for the production of Ethylamine, puts a hindrance in the product’s commercialization.

Ethylamine Segmentation

End-User (Agricultural, Pharmaceuticals, Plastics, Paints & Vanishes)

The agricultural segment is estimated to hold 38% share of the global ethylamine market during the forecast period. Ethylamine has been used in the production of different crop protection products, as well as their expansion into a wide range of Agrochemicals such as Atrazine. In 2020, sales of the herbicide atrazine in Brazil climbed by over 40% from the year before, amounting to 33.32 thousand metric tons of active ingredient. Further, ethylamine is used as a raw material for the production of some herbicides, like Cyanazine and Simazine. Ethylamine’s role lies in its capacity to combine with other compounds to form active ingredients that target pests, weeds, or plant diseases, thereby aiding in crop protection and enhancing agricultural productivity. These synthesized agrochemicals derived from ethylamine play a pivotal role in modern agricultural practices by helping farmers manage and mitigate the impact of pests and diseases on crops.

Application (Inhibitor, Catalyst, Curing Agents, Deflocculating agents)

The catalyst segment in the ethylamine market is poised to garner the majority of the revenue share during the forecast period mostly utilized in end-user industries to produce polyurethane foam and in dyes to create rhodamine and ethylcynopyrolidine dispersion. As a result, ethylamine is primarily promoted as a catalyst, focusing on and advancing the market to support higher product sales.
