How Do Historical and Future Projections Compare?
The globalethylene bis stearamideindustry has posted credible gains in the past, being valued at over US$ 300 million in 2019, with extensive application across key domains, most notably plastic manufacturing and building& construction.Uptake has also been witnessed across textile and paint manufacturing industries as well.
Growth prospects took a backseat through 2020, as the novel coronavirus pandemic led chemical manufacturers to cease production operations in the initial months. This led to a contraction in demand for EBS across prominent end-use industries. However, as the pandemic’s incidence receded, growth reverted to normalcy.
According to Fact.MR, the global ethylene bis stearamide market is slated to accrue significant gains, expected to be valued at over US$ 500 million by 2030-end, registering a CAGR of approximately 5% throughout the forecast period. Growth is expected to especially peak across the Asia-Pacific, with countries such as India and China offering significant expansion opportunities amid a rapidly expanding construction industry.
How is Increasing Plastic Production Pivoting Market Growth?
Demand for ethylene bis stearamidehas especially surged amid a global increase in plastic production in recent years. For a long time, North America and Europe led the global plastics production. Today, China is the largest producer (25%), followed by Europe (20%) and the US (19.5%). From 2012 to 2017, demand for plastic products rose steadily by about 3.7% annually, with production peaking at 300 million tons in 2013.
Demand is largely stimulated by applications across building & construction, automotive manufacturing, electrical & electronics, textiles, rubber production and a host of other areas.EBSthus helps by acting as a dispersing agent or internal/external lubricant in plastic applications to facilitate and stabilize dispersion of solid compounding materials to enhance processing and reduce friction and abrasion of the polymer surface.
An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs
How is Powder Metallurgy Opening Growth Frontiers for EBVS Manufacturers?
Key players in the market for ethylene bis stearamide are enhancing their production capacities to augment production of natural and synthetic amide waxes for deployment across powder metallurgy and cosmetics industries respectively. German manufacturer DEUREX AG’s micronized EBS DEUREX A 2050 M works as an internal lubricant and as a release agent for Sinter and powder metallurgy.
Likewise, ADC Solution offers EBS for use in all types of industries, including powder metallurgy. In order to boost credibility credentials, manufacturers are establishing long-term partnerships to ensure the quality in products. They are setting their collaboration wheels in motion to forge new partnerships to maximize profitability. EBS is being used to improve the main effects of wet spray. This has led to the popularity of ethylene bis stearamide as a dispersant in pigment master batch production.
Will Lesser Reliance on Plastic Materials Impede Uptake?
Mounting global concerns regarding plastic consumption is prompting various industries to adopt more sustainable materials within their supply chain. It is estimated that there are over 5 trillion macro and micro plastic pieces in the oceans, weighing upto 269,000 tons, with 8 million pieces making their way to the environment every day.
Concerned by these trends, manufacturers are relying on more eco-friendly alternatives, mostly derived from natural sources, including wood, bamboo and other materials across such key industries as construction and automotive manufacturing. This is expected to restrict uptake of EBS across several regions in forthcoming years.
The detailed report by Fact.MR also talks about commercial ethylene bis stearamide, residential ethylene bis stearamide, and other general types of ethylene bis stearamide.
How is Resin Production Bolstering Growth Prospects in the U.S.?
As of March 2021, US production of major plastic resins totaled 6.9 billion pounds, representing an increase of nearly 30% compared to the previous month, according to the American Chemistry Council (ACC). Sales and internal use of major plastic resins totaled 7 billion pounds during the same month, increasing by 1.3% compared to the previous month.
The Polymer Properties Database further estimates that the US plastics industry is the third largest manufacturing industry in the country, employing nearly a million people across the manufacturing sector. There are approximately 1.4 million plastics suppliers in the country, generating a turnover of about US$ 380 million annually.
Based on these statistics, a plethora of regional and global level ethylene bis stearamide manufacturers have consolidated their hold across the US market. Some prominent players include ChemCeed LLC, Acme-Hardesty Co., the Chemours Company (DuPont) and Parchem Fine & Specialty Chemicals among others.
Will Demand for EBS Rise across the U.K.?
EBS uptake across the UK is heavily reliant on significant developments across the domestic construction industry. As of the previous decade, the industry contributed over £ 80 million to the economy. After a lull experienced due to the COVID-19 pandemic, output grew by nearly 1% by January 2021, with growth driven by private commercial and infrastructure respectively.
Croda International is a prominent manufacturer, offering a broad range of product lines for various industries, including buildings and construction. Its portfolio incorporates concrete mold release agents, concrete waterproofing additives, corrosion inhibitors and superplasticizers respectively. Its CrodaTermTM bio-based phase change materials can be applied to lightweight building methods to retain high thermal mass characteristics.
How Will China’s Building & Construction Industry Pivot Market Growth?
Recent years have seen a massive incline in the building and construction projects being executed across China, amid the increasing need to accommodate the ever expanding population. A report on global skyscraper construction by the Council on Tall Buildings found that China has constructed more supertall buildings exceeding 200 meters in height than the rest of the world combined.
As per the survey, as of 2018, 143 building exceeding 200 meters were constructed globally, with 88 in China. In 2018, the CITIC tower was completed- which stands at 527 meters, being the tallest building across Beijing and the eight tallest in the world. The report revealed that currently over 2,800 projects and nearly 600,000 rooms are in the pipeline.
