DMPA is a compound with one tertiary carboxylic group and two hydroxyl groups. Carboxylic acid group is less reactive, hence DMPA reacts as a diol. The free acid group promotes resin water solubility, eases the introduction of a polar group in order to improve coating adhesion and synthetic fibre dye receptivity. In addition, the free acid group also increases the alkali solubility of deposited films. DMPA is in the form of white crystalline powder, with melting point between 170–180oC.

Substantial growth in production of polyurethane dispersion primarily in APAC, growing penetration of powder coating in automobile industry and growing investments in polyester resin market are some of the drivers of global DMPA market. The report also depicts some of the major challenges of the market such as availability of low cost substitutes such as trimethylolpropane (TMP), timethylolethane (TME) and dimethylol butanoic acid (DMBA) and price volatility.

The report starts with an overview of DMPA market across the globe. The report also depicts the marketing strategies undertaken by the key market players which is significantly transforming the DMPA market. This study analyses the DMPA market from supply perspective, in terms of revenue (US$ Mn) during the forecast period 2014-2020.

Impact analysis of key growth drivers and inhibitors based on the weighted average model providing a crystal clear decision making insights to the clients.

The next section of the report analyses the DMPA market based on applications and presents the forecast in terms of value for the forecast period. DMPA is most widely used in Polyurethane Dispersions (PUDs) in order to improve hydrophilic properties of polyurethane polymer. PUDs is further used in applications such as adhesives, glass fibre sizing, automotive topcoats, wood finishing and other such applications. The DMPA market has been broadly segmented as Polyurethane Dispersions, resins, powder coatings and electrodeposition coatings. In powder coatings, DMPA is used in epoxy-polyester systems to improve gloss, impact resistance and flow properties and flexibility of coatings and in electrodeposition coatings, usage of DMPA improves the cure response and enables the resin to be water soluble.
