Market share analysis of phenalkamine based on application and region is provided in a nutshell in the above image. Under the application segment, the coatings sub-segment dominates with a 68.2% market share in 2023.

Market Dynamics Outlook

“Growing Demand for Coatings from Construction Sector to Boost the Markets”

Coatings are widely used in the construction industry. Construction coatings help to protect surfaces from various external and environmental elements such as sunlight, UV rays, corrosion, and acid rain.

Phenalkamines are widely used as a curing agent. These epoxy hardeners share some similar advantages to other petroleum-based mannich-based curing agents such as extremely fast curing even at extremely low temperatures, good surface appearance, good chemical resistance, good moisture tolerance, and non-blushing properties.

In recent years, many developed as well as developing countries have invested heavily in the construction and infrastructure sector. The Asia Pacific region is expected to most significant opportunities for the phenalkamine market players owing to rapid urbanization.

Rising demand for infrastructural development in growing economies such as China, India, and South Korea is anticipated to bolster the demand for phenalkamine in the assessment period. This is likely to open multiple doors for phenalkamine manufacturers.

“From Petroleum to Renewable: The Evolution of Phenalkamines”

As the world becomes more environmentally conscious, there is a growing demand for green and sustainable coatings that have less impact on the environment. This has led to the development of eco-friendly phenalkamines, which are derived from renewable resources and have a lower environmental impact compared to traditional petroleum-based phenalkamines.

Eco-friendly phenalkamines offer several benefits, including reduced carbon footprint, improved sustainability, and enhanced performance. In addition, the development of eco-friendly phenalkamines is expected to support the growth of the phenalkamine market in the long run, as more consumers and industries shift towards sustainable alternatives.

“Lack of Availability of Raw Materials to Hamper the Market”

The availability of raw materials is a crucial factor that affects the phenalkamines market. The production of phenalkamines requires specific raw materials, such as polyamines and cyclic ketones, which are not readily available in large quantities.

As, cyclic ketones such as MIBK and DAA, which are used as solvents in the production of phenalkamines, are produced through complex chemical reactions and are subject to strict regulations. This complexity in the production of raw materials can result in limited availability, leading to a shortage of raw materials in the phenalkamines market.

Furthermore, the demand for raw materials used in the production of phenalkamines is increasing as the market for phenalkamines continues to grow. This increase in demand can lead to a shortage of raw materials as the supply struggles to keep up with demand.
