Amines are nitrogen-containing organic compounds derived by the substitution of one or more hydrogen atoms by an alkyl or aryl group. Different types of amines, such as ethanolamine, alkyl amine, ethylene amine, fatty amine, specialty amine, and Amino Methyl Propanol (AMP), are used in numerous commercial applications as a solvent, chelating agent, corrosion inhibitor, bleach activators, and surfactants, among others.

Smaller amines may cause health hazards, such as irritation to the skin and mucous membranes of the throat, lungs, eyes & nose, due to prolonged exposure. Increasing instances of acute health disorders including pulmonary edema result in shortened breath and gasping owing to prolonged exposure to allylamines. Moreover, evidence of clinical studies showing the formation of carcinogenic nitrosamines in cosmetic products containing diethanolamines may reduce the rate of acceptance of such products to some extent among consumers and hamper the amines market growth over the forecast timeframe.
