Market Outline: U.S Esters Market Analysis

Esters are chemical compounds containing carbonyl group adjacent to ether linkage. These are usually synthesized from organic or inorganic acids by dehydration with alcohol. Naturally occurring esters include fats, oils and triglycerides. Major types of esters include fatty acid esters of glycerol, nitrate esters, polyesters and others depending on alkyl or aromatic group it contains. The applications of esters include lubricants, cosmetics, plastics, resins, explosives, bio-fuel, surfactants and synthesis of various industrial chemicals.

Market Dynamics: U.S Esters Market Analysis

Growing demand for esters from cosmetics, lubricants, paper and personal care industry is expected to drive the market growth. Fatty esters are used in cosmetics products as a replacement of petroleum products. These are derived from vegetable oils and other renewable raw materials, hence human health hazards of fatty esters are claimed to be null. Demand for fatty acid based cosmetic products in Asia Pacific is expected to fuel the market growth. Asia Pacific is the largest producer of vegetable oil and other naturally derived oils such as palm oil, soya oil and sunflower oil. Also, demand for esters from lubricant industry is expected to fuel the market growth. Increasing penetration of automobiles in developing markets is expected to set positive outlook for the lubricants industry. However, high cost of esters based lubricant is expected to hinder the U.S esters market growth. Chemically synthesized esters are petroleum derivative hence volatility in crude oil prices is expected to hamper the market growth. Complex processing and high production cost of ester production for specific application may inhibit the market growth.
