The global amines market size was valued at USD 15.29 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 15.76 billion in 2023 to USD 21.03 billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period.

Amines are organic compounds containing a nitrogen atom bonded to one or more alkyl or aryl groups. They are commonly used in a variety of applications, including pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and dyes. The product can be classified into three main categories: primary, secondary, and tertiary. Primary has one alkyl or aryl group attached to the nitrogen atom. In contrast, secondary and tertiary have two or three such groups, respectively. The product can also be classified as aliphatic or aromatic, depending on whether the nitrogen atom is part of an aliphatic or aromatic ring.

Moreover, aliphatic products are typically less reactive than aromatic and are often used as solvents or surfactants. Aromatic products, on the other hand, are more reactive and have a wide range of applications in the production of dyes and polymers. Overall, amines are an important class of compounds that play a significant role in the development of many industries, which are expected to foster market growth.


Stagnant Supply Chain and Logistics Slash Impacted Global Market during the Pandemic

Amines Market Growth Factors

Increasing Use of the Product and its Derivatives in Personal Care Products and Cosmetics to Drive Market Growth

The trend is anticipated to grow during the forecast period owing to the growing demand from the personal care industry. The consumption of products is rising in the personal care industry, where the product compound is mainly used in moisturizers and creams, and the ammonia compound is used as an emulsifier and foaming agent. Moreover, the increasing demand for personal hygiene and self-care products around the globe is expected to drive the consumption of amine substances, and primarily, this trend will drive the amines market share in the coming years.


Stringent Regulatory Environment May Hinder Market Growth

The government has implemented strict regulations regarding the use of products in various industries. These guidelines are in place to ensure the safety of workers and consumers alike, as amine can pose significant health risks if not handled properly. Companies that use products must adhere to strict guidelines and safety protocols, including proper handling, storage, and disposal procedures. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in hefty fines, penalties, and potential harm to individuals and the environment. While material can be useful in various applications, companies need to prioritize safety and follow all necessary guidelines to protect the well-being of associated employees. These factors are expected to hinder the market growth during the forecast period.

Amines Market Segmentation Landscape

By Product Analysis

Ethanolamines Segment Held a Dominant Share Due to its Wide Usage in End-Use Applications

On the basis of product, the market is categorized into ethanolamines, alkylamines, fatty amines, specialty amines, and ethyleneamines.

The ethanolamines segment held a dominant market share in 2022. Ethanolamine is a versatile compound that is used in a wide variety of applications and is a key ingredient in many personal care products, such as shampoos, soaps, and lotions. It is also used in the production of detergents, pesticides, and pharmaceuticals. In addition, ethanolamine is used in gas-sweetening processes to remove carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide from natural gas. Its ability to efficiently absorb these gases makes it an important component in the natural gas industry, thus providing significant impetus to amines market share over the past years.

Alkylamines are a group of organic compounds that contain an amino group. They are widely used in various industries, including agriculture, pharmaceuticals, and polymers. Alkylamines are classified based on the number of carbon atoms in the alkyl group, and their properties depend on the size and structure of the alkyl group. Some common examples of alkylamines include ethylamine, propylamine, and butylamine. These compounds are important building blocks for synthesizing many other chemicals and are essential in many manufacturing processes.

Pesticides Segment to Hold Major Share Owing to the Growing Demand from Agriculture Industry to Protect Crops from Pests and Diseases

On the basis of application, the market is segmented into pesticides, surfactants, water treatment, personal care products, gas treatment, pharmaceuticals, and others.

The pesticides segment held the largest market share in 2022. The product is commonly used in the crop protection industry due to its effectiveness in controlling pests and diseases. These chemicals are used to create formulations that can be applied to crops to prevent or treat issues that could cause crop loss. These work by disrupting the nervous system of pests, which can ultimately lead to their death. They are also effective in preventing the growth of fungi and other harmful organisms. Overall, the use of amine in crop protection is an important tool for farmers to ensure the health and productivity of their crops.

In the personal care industry, the product is commonly used as a foam booster in shampoos and other products. Moreover, secondary products are particularly effective in this role. They help create a rich lather that can effectively clean hair and skin without irritating. In addition, amines are often used in other personal care products, such as lotions and creams, to help emulsify oils and other ingredients. This helps create a smooth, even texture that feels great on the skin. Overall, this product is an important ingredient in many personal care products, helping to create products that are both effective and gentle on the skin.


Based on region, the market is divided into Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa.
