Low Toxicity of Product to Boost Growth

The synthesis of numerous products uses N-Methyldiethanolamine as an intermediate. Its unique chemical products have been used in a number of areas, including coatings, textile lubricants, polishing products, detergents, pesticides and personal care products. The toxicity of the product is low. No major side effects are caused in humans.

On the following regulation agencies: AICS, IECSC, ECHA, EPA, and NFPA, N-Methyldiethanolamine was listed. Currently there are not a number of N-Methyldiethanolamine side-effects or toxic effects, however if negative health issues are detected, they will be restricted or banned in the future.

High Demand from Oil and Gas Industry to Stoke Market

N-Methyldiethanolamine is an important application of gas treatment. MDEA's demand is higher than 50% in the oil and gas industry. It is expected that the expansion of the gas treatment segment worldwide will increase MDEA demand globally. As a result, the increasing demand for gas sweetening or a process of amine gas treatment drives the market for N-methyldiethanolamine.  

Key Industries to Provide Growth Opportunity

Population growth and better living standards led to increased demand for textiles, paints and medical products. MDEA is commonly used in fabric softeners as an active agent and a good alternative to TEA esterquats. MDEA can be used to modify acrylic polymer dispersions cationically in the paints industry. For the production of silicone based textile finishing agents, MDEA is used in combination with perfluoroalkyl polymers. Finally, MDEA is used as a precursor in the medical industry to certain active substances.

N - Methyldiethanolamine is not an amine product that has been widely used, however, in specific applications, the requirement for N - Methyldiethanolamine is high. While the product may face some limitation in terms of industrial risks and handling concerns, they may be overcome by the opportunities presented by wide berth of applications.
