With 36 carbon atoms, hydrogenated dimer acid is a frequently used fatty acid. It is made up of a cyclohexane ring that was produced using clay-catalyzed dimerization at a particular temperature. Typically, it is created through the synthesis of naturally existing unsaturated fatty acids. Additionally, the use of hydrogenated dimer acid improves the heat stability, hydrophobicity, and corrosion resistance of final products; as a result, the market expansion is anticipated to be driven by the expanding import and export of metal. According to the International Trade Administration was noticed that U.S. imports of steel mill goods climbed from 2.3 million metric tons in May 2021 to 2.7 million metric tons in June 2021, a 16.1% rise.

Global Hydrogenated Dimer Acid Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Demand and Consumption of Paints and CoatingsIt was found that nearly 860 million gallons of paint were consumed in the United States in total in 2020 and more than 350 million gallons of architectural paint were consumed in the United States by the DIY ('do it yourself') segment.

Future sales opportunities for the hydrogenated dimer acid market are projected to result from the increasing need for lubricants, paints, and coatings globally. To make paints and coatings resistant to changes in the outside environment, manufacturers frequently use hydrogenated dimer acid during production.

  • Growing Construction SectorIt was noticed that economy in the USA is greatly influenced by the construction sector, the sector employs more than 745,000 people and produces structures valued at close to USD 1.4 trillion annually.

  • Increasing Import-Export of ChemicalIt was noted that exports of chemicals from the EU outpaced imports by a sizeable margin from USD 242.03 billion in 2010 to USD 411.05 billion in 2020 and over this time, exports grew by 5% a year on average.

  • High Usage of Cosmetic and Personal Care ProductsAs per one of the cosmetic surveys, around 80% of American women are considered to use cosmetics daily, which translates to 161 million people spending USD 15,000 on them over the course of a lifetime.

  • Rising Automobile Sales and Manufacturing – According to the data by the International Energy Agency (IEA), sales of electric vehicles surpassed 2.1 million globally in 2019, breaking the previous record year of 2018, increasing the stock of electric vehicles to 7.2 million.


  • Fluctuation in Raw Material Prices

The constant ups and downs in the prices of raw materials of hydrogenated dimer acid can hamper the growth of the market. It might cause significant losses to the producers by affecting the supply chain and decrement in the export/import volume. Hence, this factor is estimated to be one of the major restraints to the market over the forecast period.

  • Imbalance Supply and Demand of Crude Oil

  • Less Consumer Awareness

The hydrogenated dimer acid market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end-use industry into construction, packaging, oil & gas, cosmetics, chemical, automobile, and others. Out of these, the construction segment is estimated to hold the largest market share by the end of 2033.  The growth of the segment can be accounted to the rising demand for hydrogenated dimer acid in the construction sector since it comprises all the necessary polymers. It was noticed that in 2021, the market size of the American construction industry was estimated to be over 2 trillion dollars, and in the following year, it is anticipated to grow even more.
