Maleic Anhydride Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2024

Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC386

Introduction

Change of preferences towards stronger, lighter and fiberglass composite materials across aerospace, automotive, construction and turbine industries has rapidly increased over the past few years. This has resulted in the growing usage of unsaturated polyester resins which are employed in manufacturing lighter composite materials for use in above industries. Maleic anhydride is deployed as one of the major feedstock materials in the production of unsaturated polyester resins. It refers to an acidic anhydride of maleic acid which is generally colorless as compared to white organic compounds and is a versatile chemical intermediate which is widely used to furnish important chemicals such as tetrahydrofuran, 1,4-butanediol and gamma-butyrolactone among others. Maleic anhydride is primarily manufactured using feed stocks including benzene and n-butane of which the production of maleic anhydride from n-butane accounts for a significant share as compared to benzene. This is majorly attributed to the relatively low costs of production as well as environment friendly nature of n-butane as compared to benzene. Since benzene is considered to be toxic in nature and contribute to high production costs, it can be rarely used in production of alkyl resins which in turn are widely used in the production of paints and coatings. Maleic anhydride acts as a vital component of food preservatives, gelling agents and flavor enhancers by converting the maleic anhydride into fumaric acid and maleic acid.

Market Dynamics

Increasing disposable incomes coupled with rising penetration of spandex in various products such as sportswear, compression stockings and medical textiles among others has contributed to a surge in demand for 1,4-butanediol. Thus, it is anticipated to increase the overall adoption of maleic anhydride in the near years. Moreover, escalating growth in the construction industry in countries such as China, India, Indonesia, etc. and other developing economies is anticipated to fuel the growth of global maleic anhydride market during the analysis period. This growth is majorly attributed to the increasing adoption of unsaturated polyester resins in applications such as heat resistant tanks and pipes. Hence, this is projected to increase the demand for maleic anhydride during the coming years. In addition, rising use of maleic anhydride along with bio-based feed stock polymers is expected to accelerate the growth of global maleic anhydride market over forecast period. Maleic anhydride is basically manufactured from butane as a feedstock. Hence, increasing concerns regarding the depletion of crude oil is projected to pose a key challenge to the growth of maleic anhydride market. Furthermore, rapid use of bio-based succinic acid as a substitute to maleic anhydride may also pose a major threat to the growth of global maleic anhydride market.
