Global Trimethylamine Market: Introduction
Trimethylamine is an organic compound with the chemical formula of (CH3)3N. The compound is also known as TMA, N,N-dimethylmethanamine, methanamine and N,N-dimethyl-N-Trimethylamine. Its Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) number of the compound is 75-50-3. It is a gas at room temperature and atmospheric pressure. However, it can be stored as a transparent liquid under pressure. The boiling temperature of trimethylamine is 2.3°C. The colorless gas has a strong fishy smell due to the presence of tertiary amine group in the structure. Trimethylamine is a natural-occurring product of decomposition of animals and plants. It is synthesized by the reaction of methanol and ammonia. Trimethulamine can be manufactured by the reaction of paraformaldehyde and ammonium chloride.
Trimethylamine is employed in the synthesis of chemicals such as tetramethylammonium hydroxide and choline. It finds application in the production of plant growth regulators such as herbicides. The compound can be used to identify the freshness of fish products. Derivatives of the trimethylamine are used in the production of animal feed, oil & gas exploration activities, and synthesis of vitamins for the human body. Rise in oil & gas exploration activities and private & public investments in animal welfare activities are anticipated to drive the global trimethylamine market during the forecast period.
Global Trimethylamine Market: Segmentation
The global trimethylamine market can be segmented based on from, end-use industry, and region. In terms of form, the trimethylamine market can be bifurcated into anhydrous liquefied gas and aqueous solution. Anhydrous liquefied gas is finds application as chemical intermediary as proton scavenge and in the production of organic compounds such as diethylhydroxylamine. The aqueous solution form of trimethlyamine is anticipated to hold a large share of the market owing to its applications in the synthesis of chlorine derivatives such as choline chloride and chlormequat chloride.
Based on end-use industry, the trimethylamine market can be divided into chemicals & pharmaceuticals, oil & gas exploration, electronics, and others including industries such as paper and water treatment. Trimethylamine is utilized in the chemicals & pharmaceuticals end-use industry. Trimethylamine is extensively consumed in the formation of choline chloride compound across the globe. Choline chloride is primarily used as poultry feed. Rising demand of poultry products and increase in awareness about animal health are augmenting the demand of improved animal feed products such as choline chloride-based animal food. This, in turn, is fueling the demand of trimethylamine. Furthermore, rise in disposable income and growth of the health care industry, especially in emerging economies such as China, India, and Brazil have boosted the demand of pharmaceutical products. Therefore, the chemicals & pharmaceuticals segment is anticipated to dominate the global trimethylamine market during the forecast period.
Global Trimethylamine Market: Regional Outlook
In terms of region, the global trimethylamine market can be classified into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific accounts for a large share of the global trimethylamine market. Surge in population in countries such as China, India, and Indonesia is driving the demand of protein-based food such as poultry products, and government support in the form of subsidiaries for poultry business are propelling the requirement for animal feed in these countries to enhance quality and quantity of products. Moreover, growth in the electronics industry in the countries such as China, South Korea, and Japan propelled the demand for trimethylamine, as a stripper for resists in printed circuit boards (PCBs). This, in turn, is projected to fuel the Asia Pacific trimethylamine market during the forecast period. The trimethylamine market in North America and Europe is anticipated to expand at a considerable pace. The trimethylamine market in Latin America and Middle East & Africa is projected to expand at a sluggish pace during the forecast period due to lack of well-established end-use industries such as electronics and chemical & pharmaceutical in these regions.
