Global Market Study on Dimer Acid: Distilled and Hydrogenated Segment to Witness High Growth by 2021

Global dimer acid market is expected to register a steady CAGR of 6.2% over the forecast period from 2015 to 2021, to reach a market value of US$ 705.8 million by 2021.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/06/2015 -- Dimer acid, often referred to as dimerized fatty acids, are a class of dicarboxylic acids that are synthesized by clay catalysed oilgomerization of unsaturated fatty acids (C18). Unsaturated fatty acids that form the raw material for dimer acids are obtained from natural sources including tall oil fatty acids, rapeseed oil, cottonseed oil, and soybean oil, among the others. Dimer acid based products find application across a diverse set of industries including paints & coatings, adhesives and oilfield chemicals among the others. Depending on the purity of the final product and the processes to which it is subjected to, these dimer acids may be standard, distilled and distilled & hydrogenated dimer acids. The primary application areas of dimer acids include reactive polyamides, non-reactive polyamides, oilfield chemicals, and other miscellaneous applications such as lubrication, metal working fluids, etc.

The key drivers identified in the dimer acid industry include its wide-ranging applications in end-use industries, such as adhesives, paints & coatings, and oilfield chemicals. These industries are expected to witness sustained growth in the future, owing to which the demand for dimer acid is expected to increase. Another factor that is expected to drive the dimer acid industry is the strong economic growth in emerging regions, especially Asia Pacific. Although PMR maintains a positive outlook on the dimer acid industry, fluctuations in the price of vegetable oil can impede the growth of the market during the forecast period.
