Erucamide Market By Application (Food, Surfactants, Paper, Textile, Printing & Dyeing, Others) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2016 - 2022

Erucamide is a long chain carboxylic acid amide. It has to a great extent replaced the use of oleamide due to its beneficial properties such as resistant to high heat. This property of erucamide is due to the higher operating temperatures in the newer polymers. Erucamide is primarily used as a slip additive and an antiblocking agent. It is also used for waterproofing and paper coating compositions.

The basic raw material used in the manufacture of erucamide is erucic acid. Erucic acid is obtained from non-animal source and is a monounsaturated acid. The key source of erucic acid is rapeseed oil. It is present in the seeds of rapeseed oil in the form of glyceride. Erucamide is manufactured by reaction of purified erucic acid with ammonia at elevated temperature and pressure. Erucamide is used for wide range of applications in various end-user industries.

Growing demand for erucamide from the food packaging industry is driving the growth of global erucamide market. The beneficial thermal property of erucamide has led to high demand for manufacturing plastic films for packaging in the food industry. Erucamide is widely used in the production of dye dispersants. Hence, high demand is reported for erucamide from the printing and dyeing industry. Other applications which include textiles, surfactants and lubricants among others are also projected to fuel market growth of erucamide in the near future.

Erucamide market is expected to reach over US$ 276.6 Mn by 2022, growing at a CAGR of more than 3.0% during the forecast period 2016-2022.

Erucamide is an unsaturated carboxylic acid amide. Erucic acid is the key raw material used in the manufacturing of erucamide. Erucic acid is obtained from rapeseed oil. On the basis of application, erucamide is segmented into food, surfactants, paper, textile, printing & dyeing and others. Low volatility and chemical stability of erucamide makes it suitable for various applications in the end-user industries. It is used as an antiblock agent and slip additive. Due to its high melting point and stability to high temperature it is widely used for food packaging applications. Growing demand for plastic films in the food packaging industry has led to high demand for erucamide worldwide. It has good thermal properties in comparison with other amides. Hence, food packaging industry is expected to boost high demand for erucamide in the market. Erucamide is widely used in the printing & dyeing industry. They are used in manufacturing plating agents and surface treating agents such as dye dispersants. Printing & dyeing industry is therefore anticipated to fuel demand for erucamide in the near future. It is also used in roll stock applications in which the film that is highly slippery leads to winding troubles. Other applications such as textile, surfactants and paper are also expected to boost growth of global erucamide market during the forecast period from 2016 to 2022.
