Polyether amines (PEA) are curing agents produced by reacting ether and amine. The linkage containing ether, known as polyether, reacts with an amino group to produce polyether amine. PEA is majorly used as curing agents for epoxy resin to produce epoxy composites and coatings. It exhibits superior physical properties such as high toughness, flexibility, and low viscosity. It has a moderate glass transition temperature range between 25ᵒC and 100ᵒC. Moreover, PEA possesses long pot life and thus finds applications in hot melt adhesives, sealants, and engineering composites. Also, it exhibits hydrophobicity or hydrophilicity depending on the end-product formed. It is commercially available in liquid form with odor similar to that of amines.
Increasing concerns for renewable sources of energy such as wind energy and growing consumption of polyether amines in the production of lightweight composites such as wind turbine blades is the prime factor driving the global market growth. Moreover, wind energy is gaining popularity on account of its high-power generation efficiency and lower carbon footprint. The epoxy resin market in wind turbines application was valued at USD 310 million in 2018. Additionally, composites are largely used in aerospace, automotive, construction, and household sectors which uses polyether amine, that provides the critical balance between flexibility and strength. Moreover, superior hardness, protective cover, and excellent toughness properties of polyether amine over the heat-cured powder coatings is increasing its penetration in various coating applications such as floors of industrial and commercial buildings; and coating of marine equipment. This further boosts the global market growth. For instance, epoxy resin market in paints and coatings application was valued at USD 4,120 million by the end of 2025. The easy availability of bio-based products for epoxy coatings and organic composites is likely to pose a major challenge to the producers of polyether amine. Also, acid epoxy coatings used for flooring can lead to cracks as well as chipping, which further challenges the producers of polyether amine. Nevertheless, rising importance of polyether amine-cured rubber-like epoxy asphalt composites is likely to create lucrative opportunities for the market players in the construction industry.
However, rising environmental concerns regarding the disposal of polyether amine coupled with government regulations over health risks associated with epoxy coatings such as skin sensitization are the major factors restraining the global market growth.
