Global Polyethyleneimine Market to Reach US$ 471.5 Million by 2032, Propelled by Rising Demand for Adhesives and Sealants

April 04, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Polyethyleneimine Market by Type (Branched, Linear), Application (Adhesives and Sealants, Detergents, Water Treatment Chemicals, Paper, Cosmetics, Coatings, Inks and Dyes, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global polyethyleneimine market size reached US$ 385.9 Million in 2023. Polyethyleneimine (PEI) refers to a synthetic, water-soluble, and cationic polymer composed of aziridine (C2H5N) monomer units. It is commercially synthesized by the ring-opening polymerization of ethyleneimine, followed by acid-catalyzed hydrolysis. PEI is widely used in gene therapy, drug delivery, surface coatings, tissue engineering, bioimaging, and water treatment. It is also used to produce adhesives, sealants, surfactants, detergents, printing inks, cosmetics, and personal care products. It is a safe, versatile, and high molecular-weight polymer with excellent biocompatibility, hydrophilicity, absorption capacity, and thermal stability. PEI also offers high ionic charge density, which aids in forming stable molecular complexes and provides impressive viscosity, thickening, bonding, and film-forming properties.

Global Polyethyleneimine Market Trends:

The rising demand for adhesives and sealants is one of the key factors driving the market growth. PEI is widely used in adhesives and sealant formulations due to its high reactivity, strong electrostatic interactions, and water-resistant properties, which improve adhesion, enhance durability and allow stable bond formation with various surfaces, such as wood, metal, textiles, and plastics. Furthermore, the widespread product utilization to improve the texture and hydration properties of several cosmetics and personal care products, such as shampoos, conditioners, lotions, creams, foundations, mascara, serums, and moisturizers, is providing an impetus to the market growth. Apart from this, the increasing product application in the water treatment process to absorb impurities and contaminants and enhance drinking water quality is propelling the market growth. Additionally, the widespread product adoption in several biomedical applications, such as tissue engineering, bioimaging, enzyme and lipid purification, drug delivery, biomarker, and gene therapy, due to its low toxicity, high charge density, and excellent biocompatibility, is positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, the increasing product demand as an emulsifier, dispersant, and foaming agent in the production of detergents and surfactants to increase the effectiveness of the cleaning process and enhance the removal of organic stains is creating a positive outlook for the market. Other factors, including rising product utilization in the textile industry, increasing investment in the research and development (R&D) of new production methods, and widespread product adoption in papermaking, are anticipated to drive the market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market value is expected to reach US$ 471.5 Million by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 2.18% during 2024-2032.
