Amines are intermediates chemical compound that is used in the manufacturing of other chemical products. It is produced by alkylation of alcohols or reduction of nitriles. They are categorized into primary amines, secondary amines, tertiary amines, and cyclic amines. Amines are widely used in the production of herbicide formulations, cement and concrete, corrosion inhibitors, chelating agents, and petroleum products.

The global amines market is projected to reach around US$ 17,675.1 million by the end of 2027, in terms of revenue, growing at CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period (2020-2027).

Drivers

High demand for agricultural chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides is expected to augment the market growth of amines. Ethanolamine and ethylenediamine are widely used in the production of agricultural chemicals. The growing need for crop protection and high yield crops in order to meet the rising demand for food due to the increasing population is expected to foster the market growth of the amines.

Global Amines Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic

Many countries across the globe resorted to lockdowns to flatten the curve of the infection. The lockdowns have resulted in shutting of businesses and ceasing of almost all economic activities. According to International Monetary Fund, the global economy is expected to contract sharply by -3.0% in 2020, which is much worse than 2008-09 financial crisis. The virus will impact major producers of agrochemicals, and the entire ecosystem of agrochemicals including raw materials suppliers, formulators, distributors, and retailers. This is expected to impact demand of amines during the pandemic. According to Coherent Market Insights, amines market is expected to grow at a lower CAGR between 2020 and 2021.
