Global Methylaluminoxane (MAO) Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A white, water-soluble, powdery solid. It is used as a Lewis acid catalyst in organic synthesis and polymerization reactions.

Pharmaceutical Grade:

Pharmaceutical grade is a term used for the purest form of methylaluminoxane. It has no impurities and is free from any contaminants or additives. The pharmaceutical industry regards it as the standard for measuring purity in other related products such as vaccines, enzymes, and biologicals among others. Pharmaceutical grade MAO has been used to formulate vaccines against rotavirus (1960), hepatitis A & B (1973), influenza virus (1976) and human papillomavirus (1998).

Industry Grade:

Industry grade is a high purity form of methylaluminoxane. It has applications in various industries including adhesives, paints & coatings, and rubber processing. Industry grade MAO is 99% pure and can be used as an additive to enhance performance in the above-mentioned industries.

Increasing demand for adhesives from packaging industry coupled with rising application scope of elastomers (plastics) are expected to drive the global market over the forecast period.

Application Insights:

Scavenger was the largest application segment in 2017 and is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Increasing demand for scavengers in refineries as a result of rising petrochemical feedstock prices is expected to drive product demand over the coming years. In addition, increasing investments by companies such as Dow Chemical and Solventis are likely to propel industry expansion.

MAO finds applications across several industries including oil & gas, pharmaceuticals, paints & coatings, textiles and others such as rubber processing and paper manufacturing among others. Growing demand for catalysts from various sectors including automotive, chemicals & pharmaceuticals on account of its excellent properties like high activity level towards methylation reactions is expected to drive global market growth over the forecast period.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017. The presence of a large number of manufacturers coupled with increasing demand for scavengers from end-use industries is expected to drive the regional market over the forecast period. China, India, and Japan are some of the largest markets in this region due to high consumption rates and growing awareness regarding health hazards associated with exposure to formaldehyde gas.

The European Union has stringent regulations on formaldehyde emissions that are anticipated to positively impact industry growth over the coming years. In addition, rising demand for low toxicity products from countries such as Germany is likely to have a positive impact on industry growth during the same period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from end-use industries such as automotive, aerospace, and construction is expected to drive the growth of methylaluminoxane (MAO) market over the forecast period.
  • Rising demand for MAO in Asia Pacific is anticipated to boost the growth of global methylaluminoxane (MAO) market in near future.
  • Growing use of MAO as a precursor for various silicone products is projected to fuel the demand for this product over the next few years.
  • Increasing investments by key players in research and development activities are likely to propel the growth of methylaluminoxane (MAO) market in coming years.
