Fatty Amines Overview

Fatty amines are nitrogen-based by-products of fatty acids or olefins resultant from the raw materials such as petrochemicals, fats, and oils. Fatty amines enclose either a mix of carbon chains or a single chain with several carbons ranging from C8-C22. They are being used in many applications such as water treatment, agro-chemicals, oilfield chemicals, asphalt additives, anti-caking, mining, personal care, fabric softener, paints & coatings, and many others.

Market Size and Forecast

The fatty amines market is expected to observe an attainable high CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2020-2028. The market is segmented by type, end-use, function, and region. Among product types, the tertiary fatty amines segment is estimated to hold the biggest market share during the forecast period, both in terms of value and volume. This growth is attributed to the usage of tertiary fatty amines and their derivatives in wide-ranging applications such as fabric softeners, surfactants, drilling muds, asphalt emulsifiers, and disinfectants or bactericides. The primary fatty amines are likely to witness the fastest growth due to its quality of being used as a basic raw material to yield secondary and tertiary amines.

Based on the function, the emulsifiers segment is projected to lead the market owing to its benefits which makes it desirable in various end-use industries such as agrochemicals, chemical processing, personal care, and household.
