Esters Market Set to Cross US$ 75 Bn in 2019, Bio-based and Naturally-sourced variants Gathering Momentous Traction

Nov 20,2019 | Chemicals & Materials

Demand for esters is majorly accounted by large-scale investments observed by food & flavor, chemicals, as well as lubricant manufacturers. Supported by widespread application and large volumetric consumption across geographies, revenue generation from the sales of esters will surpass US$ 75 Bn by the end of 2019. During 2019 - 2029, esters market is set to thrive at a healthy CAGR, as indicated by a new research report of Future Market Insights (FMI).

Key Takeaways

  • Low temperature flowability and clean operation at elevated temperatures, make esters the preferred base stock in formulating lubricants for aviation, automotive, as well as general manufacturing industries.
  • Esters have also proven their worth in enhancing the overall mechanical efficiency, driving their largely prominent usage in automotive lubricant applications.
  • Conventionally, countries in Europe account for a sizeable share in the global esters marketplace. China is also noted to potentially remain a game changer with its large-scale consumption of esters, which is expected to create opportunity worth billions of dollars by the end of the forecast period. This growth can predominantly be attributed to the rising polylactic acid production in the region.
  • With esters being significantly consumed as solvents in chemicals, food, and textile industries, the market for esters in China is expected to have a robust growth outlook throughout the forecast period.
  • Increasing demand for greener products is largely prevalent in the chemicals industry. This has influenced the esters marketplace as well, with formulators, downstream manufacturers, as well as governments introducing environmental-friendly measures. Such initiatives are bolstering the demand for bio-based or naturally-sourced products.
  • Certain ester types such as polyol esters are adapted to formulate lubricants for high-performance applications.

With rising demand for esters from several end-use industries such as chemicals, food, and textiles, manufacturers are engaging in capacity enhancements. Rising prominence of contract manufacturing has been emerging as a notable trend in industry as it offers an economically-viable option for voluminous production of commoditized products to cater to growing demand.

Acrylic esters, also known as acrylates, have a variety of uses, of which a significant volume of Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) is consumed as a monomer for the production of Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA). The demand from these uses is noted to be on a rise and is further expected to positively sway growth in terms of consumption as well as revenue generation.

This study sheds light on key market players, which account for a significant share in the market. The esters market study also encompasses a global as well as regional market structure analysis. Some of the market participants identified in the global esters market include Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Exxon Mobil Corporation, Cargill, Inc., The Procter & Gamble Company, and Lanxess AG, among others.
