Dioctyl Maleate Market Outlook - 2026

The global dioctyl maleate market size was valued at $242.6 million in 2018, and is projected to reach $326.1 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 3.7% from 2019 to 2026.

Dioctyl maleate (DOM) is manufactured by reacting 2-ethylhexanol with maleic anhydride and an esterification catalyst. This serves as a key intermediate raw material in the production of DOSS surfactants. 

Increase in demand for textile coatings from the textile industry, owing to surge in production of waterproof and heat-resistant apparel and fabrics is expected to boost the demand for DOM, thereby driving the growth of the global DOM market. This is attributed to the fact that DOM is widely used in the manufacturing of textile coatings used in leather, packaging, and sports clothing. Textile coatings on the leather make it more rigid and durable. Moreover, DOM is mostly used in the cosmetic industry as moisturizer and as an external soothing agent, reducing irritation and soreness of the skin. Thus, upsurge in disposable income of consumers, improvement in standard of living, and increase in awareness toward hygiene have boosted the demand for skin care cosmetics and personal care products globally. This factor is anticipated to increase the demand for dioctyl maleate in the cosmetic industry and is expected to drive the growth of dioctyl maleate market. Furthermore, DOM is used in the manufacturing of construction adhesives, which find their major application in ceramic tiles, concrete, flooring underlayment, pre-finished panels, water proofing, and roofing. The development of the construction industry across the emerging nations such as India and China is expected to boost the demand for construction adhesives, which in turn will drive the growth of the global dioctyl maleate market.

Dioctyl Maleate Market

However, the growth of the global dioctyl maleate market is anticipated to be hampered by availability of various substitutes such as dioctyl phthalate (DOP), dioctyl adipate (DOA), and dibutyl maleate (DBM), which are cheaper and readily available. On the contrary, implementation of stringent government regulations on usage of phthalates is expected to offer lucrative opportunity for market expansion, as dioctyl maleate acts as non-phthalate plasticizer, which is nontoxic in nature.

The global dioctyl maleate market is segmented into end use and region. Depending on end use, the market size is classified into adhesives, emulsion paint, surfactants & wetting agent, plasticizer, textile coating, and others. Region wise, it is analyzed across North America (U.S., Canada, and Mexico), Europe (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, UK, and rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, India, Japan, South Korea, India, and rest of Asia-Pacific), and LAMEA (Brazil, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and rest of LAMEA).

The major key players operating in the dioctyl maleate industry include Biesterfield AG, Celanese Corporation, ESIM Chemicals, HallStar, Hangzhou Qianyang Technology Co., Ltd, Henan GP Chemicals Co., Ltd., Merck KGaA, Polynt SpA, Shandong Yuanli Science and Technology Co., Ltd., and Tokyo Chemical Industry Co., Ltd.

Asia-Pacific would exhibit an CAGR of 4.1% during 2019-2026.

Asia-Pacific accounted for a major share in the global dioctyl maleate market in 2018, owing to upsurge in demand for non-phthalate plasticizers and emulsion paints. Dioctyl maleate act as non-phthalate plasticizer, and is used in the manufacturing of emulsion paints. Emulsion paints are used to coat the exterior as well as interior surfaces of architectural structures to protect them from environmental attacks and to offer aesthetic look. Owing to increase in urbanization across the developing economies India and China, governments have initiated various infrastructural development activities such as building flyovers, stadiums, community centers, and hospitals. In addition, the Government of India launched a scheme called “Housing for All” under which it has planned to provide house for underprivileged people, which is anticipated to fuel the demand for emulsion paints, which in turn propels the growth of the dioctyl maleate market. Moreover, rise in demand for non-phthalate plasticizers in the manufacturing of food packaging film, toys, and plastic medical devices due implementation of stringent government regulation regarding use of phthalate plasticizers augments the growth of the market. This is attributed to toxic chemical nature of phthalate plasticizers. All these factors collectively are anticipated to increase the demand for dioctyl maleate market across the Asia-Pacific region.

Surfactants & Wetting Agent is projected as the most lucrative segment.

Depending on end use, the surfactant segment garnered the major dioctyl maleate market share in 2018. Dioctyl maleate is widely used in manufacturing of surfactants. Furthermore, it is widely used in the construction industry to decrease the water–cement ratio, and thus increase the compressive strength and density of concrete. In addition, surfactants are used in skin care cosmetics in which dioctyl maleate is used as emollient and as an external soothing agent, reducing irritation and soreness of the skin. Moreover, it is widely used in the manufacturing of soaps and detergents. In addition, the construction industry has witnessed significant development across the emerging economies such as India and China, due to increase in construction activities and rise in awareness regarding personal hygiene among the people. This factor is expected to increase the demand for surfactants from various industry verticals such as construction, cosmetics, and soaps & detergents, which in turn is expected to drive dioctyl maleate market growth.
