MEA (Monoethanol amine) (2-aminoethanol, ethanolamine, ETA) (HOCH2CH2NH2) is an organic chemical compound. The molecule is both a primary amine and a primary alcohol (due to a hydroxyl group). Mono ethanol amine is a colorless viscous liquid with an odor reminiscent to that of ammonia. Its derivatives are widespread in nature; e.g. lipids.
The ethanolamines comprise a group of amino alcohols. A class of antihistamines is identified as ethanolamines, which includes carbinoxamine, clemastine, dimenhydrinate, diphenhydramine, and doxylamine.
Monoethanolamine is produced by reacting ethylene oxide with aqueous ammonia; the reaction also produces diethanolamine and triethanolamine. The ratio of the products can be controlled by changing the stoichiometry of the reactants.
Rising demand from agrochemical and surfactants, strong infrastructure growth in Asia Pacific and substantially potential demand from natural gas processing are likely to spur global ethanolamines market size. Relatively slower rise of raw material costs and other factors are also expected to contribute to revenue gain. Demand from other applications such as paints and coatings, cosmetics, textiles, additives, among others, is also likely to help the global industry grow in coming years. Ever-rising integration in the value chain, along with a fragmented industry moving towards consolidation within a few key players, is likely to increase competition.
Surfactant applications led the ethanolamine market share and accounted for over 25% of the global revenue. Chemical intermediates and herbicides accounted for over 40% of the ethanol amines market size with moderate gains forecast by 2024. Growing agrochemicals industry arising due to a growing demand from agricultural activities and demand from various cleaning processes in numerous end-user industries are some of the reasons for these markets to exhibit the quickest growth numbers over the forecast period. Although the current ethanolamines market exhibits over capacity, various regions have been reported to show increased market growth in the near future with development and installation of new production plants.
The demand for MEA can be attributed to the rising demand for acid gases removal such as H2S from natural gas, olefins cracker products, and refinery steams.
