Dibutyl maleate (DBM) Market: Overview
Butyl maleates are ester compounds with a wide range of properties. There are 5 main derivatives of butyl maleate-. Monobutyl maleate, Di isobutyl maleate, Allyl Butyl maleate, Di-n-butyl Maleate, and Di-tert-butyl maleate. These derivatives have a wide range of applications, not limiting to, from the polymer industry to the pharmaceutical industry.
Dibutyl maleate popularly known as DBM is the most widely used compound among butyl maleates. It is a synthetic colorless organic chemical with a characteristic odor. Dibutyl maleate is mainly used in the manufacturing of adhesives, paints, copolymers & films, finishing agents, and cosmetics. The global market is expected to increase as the production of polymers & other derivatives of dibutyl maleate are increasing.
Dibutyl maleate (DBM) Market: Dynamics
Dibutyl maleate is widely used as a plasticizer in vinyl resins. About 90% of the global plasticizers produce are used for the manufacturing of PVC as plasticizers improve flexibility and durability. Dibutyl maleate is used in paints to improve the stability of paint towards water & ultraviolet light. The demand for DBM from the paints & coating industry is expected to grow as demand for water-resistant paints & coatings is increasing. The construction projects in developing economies will also further increase the demand for such paints & coatings.
Dibutyl maleate is now being used in the cosmetic industry as well. It acts as an SPF enhancer in skincare products and hair flexibility & gloss enhancer in hair products. Dibutyl maleate is used as a co-monomer with vinyl acetate monomer in polymer emulsion to improve the properties. It reduces the hardness and brittleness in resulting polymers.
Dibutyl maleate is used as a co-monomer in acrylic emulsions for the manufacturing of various adhesives and resins including food-grade additives. Dibutyl maleate is also used as an intermediate in the production of derivatives of succinic acid, whose global production is expected to grow over 10% annually. Dibutyl maleate is also used as an intermediate in the pharmaceutical industry. The changing prices of raw materials and the development of new eco-friendly coatings can reduce the market of dibutyl maleate.
Dibutyl maleate (DBM): Regional Outlook
The global demand for dibutyl maleate is expected to increase, with the paints and coatings industry contributing to the maximum growth. There is a significant increase in heat-resistant paints as global temperature levels are rising due to a number of reasons including global warming. The demand for dibutyl maleate from Southeast Asia is expected to grow rapidly for the production of paints and polymers due to the increase in construction projects. The implementation of strict rules relating to the use of VOCs in the production of paints will further result in rising demand for the production of dibutyl maleate.
The increasing production of plasticizers will also drive the demand in the global market. The demand from the cosmetic industry is also increasing as dibutyl maleate when mixed with other chemical agents in appropriate proportions is finding new applications in skin & hair care. Contrary, the demand from pharmaceutical industries is not expected to rise much as dibutyl maleate has limited application in the pharmaceutical industry. There are very few international players in the market. However, China dominates the market of dibutyl maleate in the Asia Pacific region.
