Sales Analysis of Amine Oxides (2017-2021) Vs. Market Estimations (2022-2032)

Amine oxides are amphoteric surfactants that are majorly used with other surfactants, which can either be cationic, non-ionic, or anionic, depending on the pH of the water. These oxides, being chemical compounds, are oxides of tertiary amines and are the analogous derivation of primary and secondary amines as well. They have polarity close to quaternary ammonium salts as they have high polar molecules.

Amine oxides are used in several end-use industries such as agricultural adjuvants, oilfield chemicals, personal and home care, etc. Attributed to the augmenting demand for amine oxides in end-use industries, the global offers a plethora of opportunities for manufacturers.

  • Short Term (2022 Q2 to 2025): Properties of amine oxides, such as being versatile, along with their usage at high temperature and pressure, to support short-term demand growth.
  • Medium Term (2025-2028): Rise in demand for surfactants in several end-use industries - personal care, oil field chemicals, and agricultural adjuvants - to fuel short-term market growth.
  • Long Term (2028-2032): Innovation and development trends in the global amine oxides market to fuel long-term market expansion.

Over the historical period of 2017 to 2021, the global amine oxides market registered a CAGR of 2.9%, and according to Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is projected to expand at 4.4% CAGR from 2022 to 2032.

Market share analysis of amine oxides based on application and region. Under the application segment, flower amine oxides currently dominate with 45.6% market share.

Why is Demand for Amine Oxides Set to Rise Steadily across Regions?

“Rising Application of Amine Oxides across Industries”

Rise in the demand for mild surfactants in the personal care industry is set to support global market growth. Personal care products that contain amine oxides offer enhanced performance at high temperatures and are widely used in home cleaning products.

Amine oxides are surface-active agents used as emollients, thickeners, conditioners, stabilizers, etc. These are used to change the surface tension of water, which helps increase wetting surfaces, foaming, emulsifying, cleaning, etc. Rise in the demand for home cleaning products is expected to augment overall market growth.

Attributed to the versatility of amine oxide to be able to work under varying temperatures and pressures, they are finding a strong foothold in oil field chemicals and agricultural adjuvants. Therefore, a rise in the usage of amine oxides in several applications will support market growth throughout the forecast years of 2022-2032.

“Demand for Green Bleach Alternatives Rising Steadily”

Although amine oxides present many benefits, the use of green alternatives and the destructive effects of chlorine bleach are likely to create challenges for market players.

One of the foremost downsides of chlorine bleach cleaners is listed to be the irritating mist produced with cleaners, which is delivered from trigger sprayers. Furthermore, chlorine bleach can lead to harmful impacts on the eyes, lungs, and skin. According to the research, it is also summarized that human tissues are externally or internally burnt. Baking soda, which is a green bleach alternative, is therefore preferred instead of chlorine bleach.

As such, the damaging effects of chlorine bleach, coupled with the escalating usage of green bleach alternatives, are expected to support the growth of the amine oxides market over the coming years.
