US Amines Market to 2016US demand to reach 3.1 billion pounds in 2016US demand for amines (excluding those used to produce other amines) is forecast to expand nearly 2.2percent per annum to 3.1 billion pounds in 2016, valued at $4.1 billion. Above average increases inagricultural chemical amine demand will drive growth, as will healthy advances in the large cleaningproduct and personal care markets. An improved outlook for construction spending will contribute toabove average growth in applications such as cement mixtures, coatings, epoxies, resins, and woodtreatments. However, maturity in markets such as petroleum operations and water treatment willpreclude faster growth for amines, as will a moderation in natural gas production and processing.This study analyzes the US amines industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001,2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by product (e.g., ethanolamines, alkylamines, fattyamines, specialty amines, ethyleneamines) and market (e.g., agricultural chemicals, cleaning products,personal care products, petroleum, natural gas processing, water treatment). The study also considersmarket environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and capacityshare, and profiles industry players.Favorable economic conditions to benefit broad range of marketsRising global demand for agricultural products -- for both food and industrial uses -- will continue tosupport increased pesticide production, particularly as the planting of herbicide resistant cropscontinues to expand. While efforts to reduce pesticide consumption through techniques such asintegrated pest management will have an impact, overall global pesticide demand will continue to rise,boosting amine demand in pesticide exporting countries such as the US.Improving economic conditions will lead to healthy growth in amine demand for cleaning and personalcare products, particularly as the unemployment rate continues to fall and consumers’ personaleconomic positions continue to improve. Demand for amines in cleaning and personal care products fellduring the recession as businesses and consumers alike looked to reduce expenditures. However, thedecline was not as great asin other markets, and quickly began to recover as the economy improved. The healthy growth goingforward will have the biggest impact on fatty amines, which are principally consumed in cleaningproduct and personal care applications.Following a protracted period of decline, construction activity in the US is expected to pick upsignificantly going forward, which in turn will drive amine demand in a number of applications. Sales ofcement mixtures, coatings, composites, epoxies, resins, and wood treatments are all expected toexpand at an above average pace. Additionally, growth in coatings and resins will be driven by ongoingrobust demand for polyetheramines that are a primary component of polyurea coatings andcomposites. The use of amines for composites and resins will also be supported by advances in windturbines and in the aerospace industry, though demand in these applications can be volatile due to theirdependence on government funding and subsidies.
Most amines to rise at pace close to overall averageWhile polyetheramines will experience the fastest growth going forward, it will be from a small base.Most other amines will rise at a pace that is around, or just below, the overall average. Specialty andethylene amines will expand at the slowest pace, though this largely reflects the maturity of key marketssuch as lubricants, petroleum operations, and water treatment. Additionally, demand for these amineswill be restrained by a slowdown in natural gas production and processing following the robust increasesin output that resulted from the widespread adoption of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drillingtechnologies in shale formations.Company ProfilesProfiles for 25 competitors in the US industry, including Dow Chemical, DuPont, Huntsman, and TamincoBuy a copy of this report @http://www.reportsnreports.com/Purchase.aspx?name=211660Report Details:Published: December 2012No. of Pages: 219Price: US$4900TABLE OF CONTENTSINTRODUCTION viiiI.
