DMAPA (dimethylsminopropylamine) Market Overview

The global dimethylaminopropylamine (DMAPA) market was valued at USD 300.40 million in 2020 and is expected to register a CAGR of 4.32% to reach USD 470.85 million by the end of 2030.

Dimethylaminopropylamine (DMAPA) is a diamine produced by reacting dimethylamine and acrylonitrile, followed by a hydrogenation process that yields DMAPA. It is a clear, colorless liquid completely miscible with water, alcohols, esters, and ketones; and partially miscible with diethyl ether, benzene, chlorinated hydrocarbons. It is widely used in producing surfactants which are further used in numerous personal care products such as soaps, shampoos, and cosmetics.

COVID-19 Impact on the DMAPA (dimethylsminopropylamine) Market:

The outbreak of COVID-19 has had a negative impact on the production of dimethylaminopropylamine (DMAPA) due to the disruption in the supply chain across the globe. For protecting workers from the spread of the new coronavirus, the companies in the market have restricted travel and face-to-face meetings for the employees. According to the UN, the global economy is projected to contract by around 3% or more instead of registering 2.5% growth projected by the World Economic Situation and Prospects report 2020.

Additionally, the majority of raw materials suppliers in this market had to shut down their operating facilities due to the outbreak of COVID-19. In response to combat the virus, the key suppliers shifted their focus towards offering relief in the pandemic. For instance, BASF SE started providing support to worldwide academic research groups searching for a suitable active ingredient to treat patients infected with the coronavirus. In a similar instance, Evonik Industries Company contributed to COVID relief efforts.

Furthermore, skincare, haircare, cosmetics, and oral care product manufacturers are the key consumers of dimethylaminopropylamine (DMAPA). These manufacturers have decreased their production capacities owing to the decline in demand from the end-use industries, reduced prices, and disruptions in the supply of raw materials. On the other hand, personal cleansing products such as hand sanitizers and body lotions have witnessed a spike in demand and higher than usual consumption which is expected to re-normalize in the coming years.

In conclusion, every end-use industry is facing a challenge for smooth operations during this period. However, the pandemic is likely to have a severe short-time impact across the markets. On the other hand, the long-term impact is expected to be moderate, and the operations across this market would bounce back to normal around the second quarter of 2022.

Market Dynamics


  • High demand from personal care industry

Dimethylaminopropylamine (DMAPA) is a diamine used to make surfactants like betaine, which is found in many personal care products like soaps, shampoos, and cosmetics. Davines International, Revlon, Evo, and Dove are just a few personal care brands that contain DMAPA. The majority of specialty amines are converted into amphoteric surfactants, used as starting materials in personal care products.


  • Fluctuation in raw material prices

The two major raw materials used in DMAPA production are acrylonitrile and dimethylamine. The acrylonitrile price is significantly associated with the price trend of crude oil, the demand-supply gap, feedstock variations, and downstream sector market movement. Furthermore, reduced output amid limited operations and force majeure affected acrylonitrile prices in North America in 2021. Overall, the prices of DMAPA raw materials are highly influenced by crude oil prices, as methanol and propylene are some of the key raw materials used in production.


  • Scope for small businesses to expand

The global dimethylaminopropylamine (DMAPA) market is highly consolidated, with the majority of the market share held by the prominent players active in the market. As per reports, DMAPA is manufactured or distributed by various companies. BASF is the largest producer and supplier of DMAPA, with facilities located in Europe and the US. However, these producers cater to specific end-use applications only. Thus, small businesses have a huge opportunity to expand their business in the untapped application areas.


  • Detrimental environmental effects

DMAPA is projected to have a considerable and growing demand for its application in personal care products. This chemical is also used in leather processing, paper, and rubber industries. It is an intermediate in the production of fabric softeners, polymers, agrochemicals, flocculating agents, liquid soaps, and dye intermediates. Furthermore, DMAPA may be toxic to aquatic species when introduced into the water. The features of DMAPA as a base might impact its environmental occurrence. As a result, the detrimental environmental effects of DMAPA coupled with a moderate impact on human exposure are likely to challenge the market growth throughout the projection period.

Regional Analysis

Europe accounted for the largest market share and is projected to witness the fastest growth in the market. Countries such as Germany, the UK, France, and Italy are among the key users of DMAPA across Europe. The utilization of DMAPA across these countries is varied with multiple aspects of applications. Growing industries such as pharmaceutical and textiles are increasingly demanding higher grade DMAPA for consumption across these market spaces of the region. . North America accounts for second largest share in the market and the growth is mainly due to the presence of growing industries such as textiles, pharmaceuticals, and more. The use of plastics and plastic compounds in the region is adversely growing owing to demand generated from these end use industries. Asia-Pacific is one of the highly produced markets for DMAPA globally. The region is concentrated with several small and medium enterprises (SMEs) which work closely with the end use markets. The use of DMAPA is prolonged due to adverse utilization of the substance across multiple cross-domain units. Latin America and Middle East and Africa accounted for single-digit market share in the global market. However, Increasing penetration of new market penetrants in the region and growing demand for personal care industry is likely to boost the growth of these regions.

Competitive Landscape

The global DMAPA (dimethylsminopropylamine) market is highly fragmented and consists of many organized and unorganized industry players. The market on a global scale, other than BASF SE, is highly fragmented, with various small and medium scale companies operating across China and Asia-Pacific region. These companies shave a strong foothold in the Chinese marketspace, yet their presence across Asia-Pacific and the Rest of the World is nominal. Multinational companies such as BASF SE, Huntsman, and Chemours Company are constantly improvising and enhancing their product portfolio to sustain themselves in the global competitive market. Conversely, companies based out of China are small enterprises that are capturing over 65% of the native market based on strategic alliances and government initiatives to promote local businesses.

  • In April 2021, Air Products & Chemicals Inc. finished their complete acquisition of China Shenhua Coal to Liquid and Chemical Co. Ltd. Of the remaining 50% stake of the company. The acquisition was triggered to expand their operations across Asia-Pacific, especially in China.

  • In April 2021, Huntsman International LLC completed expansion of specialty amines and polyurethane catalysts in Petfurdo, Hungary. The million-dollar project was setup to further enhance their grounds in specialty amines business division across Europe.
