[Online Quarterly Update] Alkyl Amine Market experienced considerable growth as its demand reached 1.94 million tonnes in 2021 and the hydrocarbon is expected to achieve a healthy CAGR of 4.62% during the forecast period (2023-35).
Amines are basically derivatives of Ammonia. If one or more than one hydrogen of Ammonia is replaced with alkyl substituents, then it is called Alkyl Amine. On the basis of type, Alkyl Amine market is segmented into Methyl Amine, Ethyl Amine & Higher Alkyl Amines (Propyl Amine, Butyl Amine ,Cyclohexyl Amine & Others). The smallest member of group is methylamines. It is further classified into MMA (monomethylamine), DMA (dimethylamine) and TMA (trimethylamine) based on the number of methyl group replaced by Hydrogen of ammonia.  They are produced by reacting Ammonia with methanol over a fixed bed silica-alumina catalyst. 
The major method for producing ethyleneamines is by the reaction.of Ammonia with ethylene dichloride to give ethylenediamine and its higher homologues which are diethylenetriamine, triethylenetetramine, and tetraethylenepentamine. Another method to produce Ethyl Amines is by reaction of ammonia with monoethanolamine under high pressure. 
The increasing demand for Alkyl Amines in various industries to produce Pharmaceuticals, & Agrochemicals is driving the market around the world. The increasing usage of methyl & ethyl amines in the pharmaceutical sector for making drugs and formulations like Ephedrine & Remdesivir is expected to register a CAGR of 9% in the forecast period.
Another alkyl amine, Methyl amines find applications in the making of pesticides, explosives & surfactants. It is used for tanning purposes in dying industry. Other uses of alkyl amine include its use as solvent, polymerization inhibitor, components of paint removers, rocket propellant and in the making of various specialities chemicals like methamphetamine. Ethyl amines find applications in the making of lubricants and fuel additives, epoxy hardeners, wet strength resins, carbamate fungicides, chelating agents, bleaching agents & many more. It is a chief ingredient of crop protection chemicals.
On the basis of end-use, the market is segregated into pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, paints & dyes, water treatment chemicals, rubber chemicals and others. Among these, the pharmaceutical sector dominated the Alkyl Amine market across the globe with a market share of 51.27% and is expected to maintain its dominance in the anticipated period as well. The agrochemicals segment is also expected to witness robust growth in the next few years, which will further boost the demand for Alkyl Amine in the future. 
Among different regions, the Asia Pacific region dominated the Alkyl Amine market in 2021 with a share of 64.34% and is likely to maintain its dominance in the forecast period as well. The increasing consumption of Alkyl Amine in growing populated regions of China, India, & Southeast Asian nations due to its high demand in pharmaceuticals & agriculture is driving the Alkyl Amine market across the Asia Pacific region. Followed by the APAC region, North America & Europe holds the second and third largest share of Alkyl Amine in terms of demand.
