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 dramatically replaced the use of oleamide due to its beneficial properties, such as resistancehigh heat resistance. 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 anti-blocking agent. It is also used for waterproofing and paper coating compositions.

The primary raw material used in the manufacture of erucamide is erucic acid. Erucic acid is obtained from a 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 as glyceride. Erucamide is manufactured by a reaction of purified erucic acid with ammonia at elevated temperature and pressure. Erucamide is used for a wide range of applications in various end-user industries.

Growing demand for erucamide from the food packaging industry is driving the growth of the global erucamide market. The beneficial thermal property of erucamide has led to high demand for manufacturing plastic films for packaging in the food industry. In addition, Erucamide is widely used in the production of dye dispersants. Hence, high demand is reported for erucamide from the printing and dyeing industry. Furthermore, other applications, including textiles, surfactants, and lubricants, are also projected to fuel the market growth of erucamide soon.

The erucamide market is expected to reach over US$ 276.6 Mn by 2022, growing at a CAGR of more than 3.0% from 2016 to 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. Based on application, erucamide is segmented into food, surfactants, paper, textile, printing & dyeing, and others. The low volatility and chemical stability of erucamide make it suitable for various applications in end-user industries. It is used as an antiblock agent and slips additive. Due to its high melting point and stability at high temperatures, it is widely used for food packaging applications. Growing demand for plastic films in food packaging has led to high demand for erucamide worldwide. It has good thermal properties in comparison with other amides. Hence, the food packaging industry is expected to boost the high demand for erucamide.

Furthermore, Erucamide is widely used in the printing & dyeing industry. They are used in manufacturing plating agents and surface-treating agents such as dye dispersants. The 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 highly slippery film leads to winding troubles. In addition, other applications such as textiles, surfactants, and paper are also expected to boost the growth of the global erucamide market during the forecast period from 2016 to 2022.
