Pentanediamine is an organic compound that belongs to the group of aliphatic diamines. The market is expected to grow at a steady rate in the coming years due to various factors such as the increasing demand from the construction and automotive industries and the increased use of this organic chemical as an epoxy curing agent.Epoxy resins are widely used in the production of adhesives, coatings, and composites, and it is one of the most used curing agents for epoxy resins.
It is preferred over other curing agents due to its excellent chemical properties, including low viscosity, high reactivity, and low toxicity. As the demand for epoxy-based products such as coatings and adhesives increase, the demand for this organic chemical as a curing agent is also expected to increase. Moreover, in the automotive industry, it is used in the production of coatings and adhesives to provide high-performance properties including excellent adhesion, durability, and resistance to chemicals, abrasion, and weathering. Similarly, in the construction industry, it is used in the production of coatings and adhesives to provide superior properties such as excellent adhesion, durability, and resistance to water, chemicals, and UV radiation.
For instance, polyurethane coatings are commonly used by automotive manufacturers to provide a protective and decorative finish to vehicle parts including as bumpers, trims, and wheels. This organic chemical is a key raw material used in the production of polyurethane coatings and adhesives. It is used as a chain extender or a crosslinker in the reaction of polyols and isocyanates, which are the basic components of polyurethane.
The pentanediamine market is broadly segmented into type, applications, and end-user industries. The type segment is further subdivided into biobased polyamide (nylon) and others. The application segment is further categorized as coatings, adhesives, resins, and others. The end-user industry segment is further classified as construction, automotive, textile, and others.
Some of the key players operating in this segment are Cathay Biotech Inc.,BASF SE, Evonik Industries AG, DuPont, Tosoh USA, Inc., Solvay, and others. Prominent players involved in the marketplace are continuously focusing on business expansion activities through collaborations and partnerships across the value chain. For instance, in May 2022, Tosoh USA, Inc collaborated with Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. to develop new polyamide resins using pentanediamine and other raw materials.
Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the market in the coming years due to the presence of major end-use industries such as construction, automotive, and textile in the region. The growth in the construction and automotive industries, especially in countries such as China, India, and Japan, is expected to drive the demand for this market in the region.
