Impact Of Covid-19 On The Global Monoisopropanolamine (Mipa) Market

  • The novel coronavirus is an incomparable global pandemic that has spread to over 180 countries and caused huge losses of lives and the economy around the globe. The monoisopropanolamine (MIPA) market has been negatively impacted due to the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, owing to its dependence on chemical manufacturing, metalworking, cosmetics, and other end-use sectors. For instance, according to a report published by the American Chemistry Council (ACC), the U.S. chemical output fell by 3.6% in 2020 after a 0.1% dip in 2019. Furthermore, to control the surge of novel coronavirus cases, there is a drastic shift of investments from other sectors toward healthcare. 
  • Also, several monoisopropanolamine manufacturing companies have either shut down or shrank their operations, due to the risk of infection among the workforce. This has temporarily hampered the production rate of the monoisopropanolamine (MIPA) market. 
  • In addition, the falling income of customers has led contraction in the demand for cosmetic products where monoisopropanolamine is widely used as an intermediate in producing various cosmetics & beauty care products. Furthermore, the industry has faced various problems related to transportation, the non-availability of a skilled workforce, and reduced export/import orders amid the COVID-19 period. This has led the monoisopropanolamine (MIPA) market to witness a downfall in demand. 
  • However, the emerging applications of monoisopropanolamine for synthesis of various drugs in the pharmaceutical sector may lead the monoisopropanolamine (MIPA) market to recover post COVID-19 scenario. For instance, according to an article published by the Business Standard, the second wave of COVID has pushed the growth of the Indian pharmaceutical industry to 59% in April 2020. 
  • Furthermore, increasing applications of monoisopropanolamine in agrochemical sector for manufacturing various herbicides may lead the monoisopropanolamine (MIPA) market to witness a significant growth in demand. For instance, according to an economic survey conducted by the Indian Ministry of Finance, the agriculture and allied activities in India clocked a growth of 3.4% during 2020-21. In addition to this, as the restrictions imposed due to lockdowns are being lifted, the monoisopropanolamine manufacturing sector is expected to recover soon, owing to an increase in demand for personal care & cosmetics, agrochemicals, and chemical intermediates in both developed and developing economies.
