Amine oxide is a tertiary amine oxide known as N-oxide or amine N-oxide. Amine oxide is a type of surfactant known as an amphoteric surfactant. It transitions from net cationic to nonionic as it progresses from low to high pH, confirming its atmospheric origin. In general, amine oxides are used to protect amines and other chemical intermediates. Amine oxides are highly polar molecules with polarities similar to quaternary ammonium salts.

Amine Oxide Market Dynamics

Amine oxide is witnessing an increase in demand for mild surfactants, especially from the personal care industry, such as shampoos, conditioners, and detergents, which drives the market for amine oxide. Products for personal care that contain amine oxides function better in hot and hard water. The rise in demand for home cleaning products drives the amine oxide market.

Amine oxide is used in industrial applications, such as thickeners, emollients, emulsifiers and conditioners. The increasing use of long-chain alkyl amine oxides as foam stabilizers and amphoteric surfactants is estimated to raise the market's growth.

Increasing demand for amine oxide in agriculture & personal care sectors

Amine oxides are widely used in agriculture, such as insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and other agents. It regulates or eradicates unwanted pests and agricultural adjuvants enhance plant diseases. The increased foliar uptake is particularly beneficial for herbicides, growth regulators and defoliants, as fewer active compounds are required, which reduces costs and pollution. The choice of adjuvant in an agrochemical formulation is crucial. The surfactants commonly used as adjuvants include non-ionic (no charge) surfactants. The increasing demand for agriculture adjuvants helps the amine oxide market to rise over the forecast period.

Amine oxide is largely used in consumer products and consumption of personal and home care products is also driving the consumer products sector. The market growth for amine-N-oxide is expected to be driven by an increase in demand for mild surfactants, particularly from the personal care industry. The high temperatures in hard water and personal care products containing amine oxide provide improved performance. The home cleaning materials, amine oxides are also commonly used. Amine oxide is a surface active agent used to adjust water's surface tension which helps to increase wetting surfaces, emulsify foam and also helps to clean the surface. The growing demand for home cleaning products is expected to augment the overall market growth. Therefore, with the increasing demand for consumer products globally, the amine oxide market is expected to grow in the forecast period.

The side effect of amine oxide on human health restrains the market growth

The surfactant-thickened active chlorine-containing bleach compositions contain at least one water-soluble anionic styrenic polymer. Styrenic polymer increases the rheological properties of the structure of the thickened bleach. The thickened bleach formulation requires a thickening method dependent on surfactants, including an amine oxide and an alkaline agent, to preserve the pH of the formulation at approximately ten or greater. The irritating mist generated when the cleaners are delivered from trigger sprayers is one of the major drawbacks of 'chlorine bleach cleaners. Chlorine bleach is very painful and corrosive on the skin, lungs and eyes. It has also been accepted that human tissue is internally or externally burnt. Therefore, green bleach alternatives, such as baking soda, are highly preferred instead of chlorine. Hence, due to the increasingly harmful effects of chlorine bleach and the growing use of green bleach alternatives, the market demand for amino oxide is anticipated to see major downtime in the upcoming years. The amine oxide market is anticipated to be constrained by the development and implementation of numerous strict rules regarding releasing dangerous chemicals and gases into the environment while manufacturing the chemicals.

COVID-19 impact analysis on Amine Oxide Market

The COVID-19 pandemic unevenly impacted the global amine oxide market. The pandemic and government-ordered lockdowns have led to a deep recession impacting virtually every region in 2020. The consumption and production of consumer products such as personal and home care products were also hit, leading to the decline of the amine oxide market. Manufacturing was closed during the pandemic, so global amine oxide demand and availability diminished. Trade restrictions, breaking supply chains, government restrictions on manufacturing products and globally lockdowns can affect foaming agent demand. Therefore, the foaming materials processing factories were closed. The demand for the global amine oxide market decreased internationally.

With the government movement restrictions and lockdowns, the development of new products was slowed considerably. It also hampered the ability of companies to respond to supply chains giving much more challenging. However, the pandemic will not impact the long-term growth prospects of the global amine oxide market since the demand for surfactants and cleaning agents remains strong.

Amine Oxide Market Segment Analysis

The global amine oxide market is segmented into type, chemical, application and region. 

Growing usage of amine oxides in consumer products such as thickeners, emollients and emulsifiers 

The amine oxide market by application is further segmented into agrochemicals, consumer products, industrial chemicals, coatings, food & beverages and others. The consumer segment covered a large area of amine oxide. The segment dominance is attributed to the greater usage of amine oxides in consumer products such as thickeners, emollients, emulsifiers, detergents, shampoos and conditioners. The demand will keep rising over the coming years, greatly supporting segment growth.

Amine Oxide Market Geographical Analysis

The rapidly rising population increased consumption of personal care products and the presence of major manufacturers allowed Asia-pacific to dominate the market.

Asia-Pacific has a leading regional share in the global amine oxide market during the forecast of the consumption and production of consumer products from various countries. The growing demand for sulfur-free and milder personal care products is expected to fuel the market's growth for amine oxides. In several member countries of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), amine oxide is a high-production volume class of compounds. Japan and South Korea are major manufacturers of amine oxide. It is also known as amine-N-oxide or N-oxide in Asia-Pacific. According to the International Trade Administration, South Korea is the world's 9th largest cosmetics industry, therefore anticipated to increase in the Asia-Pacific over the forecast period.
