Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Fatty Amines Market size is projected to cross USD  8 billion by the end of 2035 by growing at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of fatty amines was over USD 3 billion. Fatty amines are organic compounds that are derivatives of ammonia and contain one or more hydrogen atoms that are substituted by either an aryl or an alkyl group. These compounds are also known as oleochemicals. Fatty nitriles' hydrogenation reaction, which is catalyzed, continuously separates fatty amines from oleochemicals. They can be used for a variety of purposes, including water treatment, agrochemicals, petroleum chemicals, additives for asphalt, anti-caking, and other uses in the mining, personal care, textile, painting, and blending industries. Numerous consumer sectors use fatty amines, including those that deal with texture, sanitization, organology, corrosion inhibition, and other cosmetic additives. Additionally, they are increasingly being utilized in fabric softeners and liquid detergents. Rising demand for liquid detergent and fabric softeners the industrial investment from the developed countries is estimated to drive the growth of this market in the forecast period. As per data published by market research firm Kantar, liquid detergent had a penetration of 15.5% in India. In short low cost of raw material, with its easy availability doubled with low production cost and low toxicity level is expected to drive the growth of this market in the upcoming times.

Fatty amine utilization could be highly seen in the paint and coating industry owing to its multinational performance characteristics and it also does act as an epoxy curing agent. Rising construction and building activity in emerging economies such as in the Asia Pacific. Owing to the increasing population doubled with the strong economic development of the region is increasing the demand for fatty amines market. APAC Smart City project is anticipated to reach USD 1100 billion by 2025.

Fatty Amines Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Strong demand from diverse industries - The global market for fatty amines is anticipated to be primarily compelled by the burgeoning demand for agrochemicals and asphalt additives, worldwide. Also, the rapidly thriving water treatment chemicals industry is propelling the demand for fatty amines. The rising global population, followed by the growing demand for agricultural products, will contribute to the demand for agrochemicals based on fatty amines. Asia, North America, and South America accounted for 40%, 25%, and 22% share in the overall pesticide and other agricultural chemicals market.
  • Rising Technological Advancement - Further, technological advancements and growth in novel applications will be another imperative factor raising significant demand from the verticals, such as mining, fabric conditioning, paints & coatings, and detergents, over the foreseeable future. In 2022, the United States was regarded as the largest tech market in the world.
  • Growing Demand for Water Treatment Chemicals – Water is found diversely in various parts of the world. Not all water is good for drinking use, therefore, wastewater treatment is a crucial part. Water treatment chemicals and fatty amines are widely used in wastewater treatment. Based on end use, the water treatment segment is expected to hold a revenue of USD 2 billion by the end of 2035.
  • Increasing Use of Personal Care and Cosmetic Products – As per the sources, the personal care and beauty industry generated a market revenue of USD 100 million in 2021.


  • Availability of Alternatives - The availability of economical alternatives that are relatively environment-friendly, uncertain raw material pricing and fluctuating availability of fatty amines, and the presence of stringent government regulations concerning the hazardous impact of these compounds restricting their usage, are the key factors that might hamper the growth of the overall fatty amines market in the forecast period.
  • Strict Government Regulations

Fatty Amines Market Segmentation

End-user (Agrochemicals, oilfield chemicals, chemical processing, water treatments)

Fatty Amines Market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end-use into agrochemicals, oilfield chemicals, chemical processing, water treatments, and others. Out of this, the agrochemical segment is anticipated to account for the largest market share in the forecast period. Owing to fatty amine's anti-caking agent properties, fatty amines are highly used in the manufacturing of fertilizers and pesticides. Globally more than 2 million tonnes of pesticides and fertilizers are produced. In addition, the need for higher productivity in the agricultural sector and growing sustainability concerns regarding the food supply are some of the main factors influencing the dominance and expansion of the agrochemicals market. Since the past few decades, the demand for agrochemicals has increased in the agriculture and food industry owing to its reduced arable. Fatty amines are used as anti-caking agents and wetting agents, thus used as agrochemical additives.

Type (Primary, Secondary, Tertiary)

 The fatty amines market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by product types into tertiary, secondary, and primary fatty amines. Out of which, 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 their quality of being used as a basic raw material to yield secondary and tertiary amines. Tertiary and secondary fatty amines are derived from primary fatty amines; thus, they are significant in different verticals.
