Hexamethylenediamine Market Size, Growth Potential Analysis, Porters Analysis, Pricing Trend, Regulatory Landscape & Forecast, 2023 – 2032

  • Report ID: GMI2094

Hexamethylenediamine Market size will see noticeable growth over 2023-2032 owing to rising product application in textiles, petrochemical, paint and coatings, and automotive industries.

Hexamethylenediamine (HMDA) is widely used in the automotive sector in the making of vehicle body parts. A growing preference for nylon materials over metal to reduce the overall weight might increase its consumption. Additionally, the use of hexamethylenediamine in the production of curing agents, paints, and coatings is expected to drive market growth. In the petrochemical sector, the compound is used to produce polyamides for 3D printing. Continuous innovation of bio-based products and increasing demand across emerging regions such as Asia-Pacific will provide a positive outlook.

The main constraint for the hexamethylenediamine market is the emergence of alternatives to manufacture nylon. The compound is expensive to manufacture, package, and transport. Strict government regulation over risk management and manufacturing could be a challenge for market players in the near future. In addition, the compound is very harmful and can irritation, skin burns, and eye damage.

On the basis of application, the hexamethylenediamine industry is segmented into nylon hardeners, water treatment chemicals, coating agent products, lubricants, synthetics and adhesives, automotive, textile, petrochemical, paints, and coatings, etc. Nylon synthesis accounts for a large percentage of end uses in the automotive and textile industries. It is used in the production of technical textiles for automotive, electrical, and electronic products.

The textile sector holds a major share of the hexamethylenediamine market as the product is used in the manufacture of products such as clothing and carpets. Nylon 6-6 is extremely durable and resistant to high temperatures, making it a sought-after material among a variety of materials.

Regionally, North America, led by the US and Mexico, holds a major share of the global hexamethylenediamine. The automotive sector across these countries experiences a robust demand for nylon textiles. Europe is also a promising avenue for the hexamethylenediamine owing to many well-established and dominant automotive players like Audi and Volkswagen. Moreover, increasing restrictions on light vehicles will boost their demand in the region.

Asia-Pacific holds a moderate share of the hexamethylenediamine industry owing to the consumption of nylon. In the region, the textile sector has been growing a decent rate over the past five years, which has improved product consumption.

Some of the major hexamethylenediamine companies are INVISTA, BASF, Evonik Industries, Toray industries, Ascend Performance Materials, Asahi Kasei, Genomatica, Rennovia, Ashland, DuPont, and Solvay. These firms are expanding their production capacity to remain competitive in the market. In January 2022, BASF announced plans to construct a new hexamethylenediamine (HMD) plant in Charanpelle, France. Its HMD production capacity is estimated to increase to 260,000 metric tons per year by the new plant beginning from 2024.

Impact of the Russia-Ukraine war on the hexamethylenediamine market

The Russia-Ukraine war is expected to have an influence on the  as the war severely disrupted the automotive sector which forced OEMs and suppliers to discontinue trade with Russia. Several OEMs in Eastern Europe have also slowed their production due to a lack of parts and raw materials from Ukraine-based suppliers. Auto supply shortages and production halts are expected to impact the growth of hexamethylenediamine industry.
