Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand from Adhesives and Sealants Segment

Polyethyleneimine is used as coatings or laminations in the adhesive industry. The market for laminating adhesives is expected to register a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period, owing to the rapid growth in the flexible packaging industry and the increasing demand for packaged food.

  • Polyethylenimine is also used as an extrusion coating primer in the adhesives industry. The extrusion coating market is expected to register a CAGR of greater than 5%, which may ensure a stable demand for polyethyleneimine from the segment.

  • The residential construction growth rate estimations for 2020 for major economies, such as India, China, and the United States, are 8%, 4%, and 3%, respectively. This indicates a stable demand for adhesives from the sector and, in turn, for polyethyleneimine.

  • The adhesives and sealants segment is expected to dominate the polyethyleneimine market over the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific to Dominate the Market

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the dominant market for polyethyleneimine during the forecast period, as the region dominates the market for applications, such as detergents, adhesives, water treatment chemicals, cosmetics, and paper.

  • Polyethyleneimine is used as a wet strengthening agent in pulp and paper manufacturing. The growing paper and pulp industry in countries, such as China, India, and South-east Asia, may continue to act as a driver for the market studied.

  • The market for water treatment chemicals in Asia-Pacific is expected to register a CAGR of approximately 7% during the forecast period. One of the major factors driving the consumption of water treatment chemicals is the rising ground and surface water pollution. Polyethyleneimine is used as coagulants, flocculants, and chelating agents in water treatment chemicals.

  • Thus, the rising demand from the aforementioned applications is expected to drive the growth in the Asia-Pacific region.
