Downstream demand was heard gaining positive momentum after a major drag observed in Q2. Volumes and margins of Ethyl amines remained weak due to the overall depressed economy and competitive pressures. The regional Methyl amine manufacturers continued to optimize their asset footprints in efforts to reduce structural costs and enhance competitiveness of their business when the potential restrictions continued to affect the overall consumption. Alkyl amine imports remained largely impacted with the suppliers keeping a close eye on operating rates and adjusting production according to suppressed demand levels.

Finally, region-specific markets for Alkyl Amines are analyzed and region-wise demand pattern is tracked.
Alkyl Amines is a large class of nitrogen-containing organic compounds used across a plethora of chemical industries. Amines are generally produced through hydrogen-reduction reactions using metals as catalysts under high pressure. Amines are generally produced from Ammonia (NH3), by displacement of Hydrogen molecule in the Ammonia molecule with alkyl radicals (R) such as Methyl, Ethylene, Propanol etc. Structurally, three types of alkyl amines are produced-Primary, Secondary or Tertiary, based on the number of hydrogen atoms displaced. Alkyl Amines have wide-ranging applications in the rubber processing chemicals, agrochemicals, surfactants, and solvents. The key end-use markets that they serve include explosives, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, animal/poultry feed additives and water-treatment. Globally, the Alkyl Amines industry is an oligopoly with two-three producers catering to the majority demand. Eastman Chemical Company and BASF are the largest players globally among the top six players having a greater hold of the global Alkyl Amine capacities.
