Global N-Phenylmaleimide Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

N-phenylmaleimide (NPM) is a maleimide derivative that reacts with thiol groups (-SH) to form stable covalent bonds. NPM is used as a crosslinker in biochemistry and molecular biology to stabilize protein complexes, immobilize enzymes, and label proteins with fluorescent tags.

High Purity:

High purity is a term used to define products that contain more than 99.5% of the active ingredient as compared to its counterparts in the market. The product is usually characterized by higher melting point and boiling point, which helps in maintaining its purity during purification process. It also helps manufacturers reduce costs associated with raw material procurement and waste during purification procedures, thus increasing overall profit margins for companies involved in high-purity production.

Low Purity:

N-Phenylmaleimide is a low purity product and it's majorly used in the production of maleimides. It has applications in various end-use industries such as electronics, automotive, aerospace & defense and textile. N-Phenylmaleimide is also used as an intermediate for manufacturing herbicides, insecticides and fungicides. The demand from these end use industries are expected to drive the overall market growth over the forecast period.

Application Insights:

Key applications of the product include antifouling composition, ABS resin, intermediates in the pharmaceutical industry and others. Antifouling composition was the largest application segment with a volume share of over 70% in 2017. The product is used as an active ingredient for producing antifoulants which are used to prevent fouling organisms from attaching themselves to ships, boats or other marine vessels. These products have high demand among recreational boaters and commercial fishermen due to their ability to reduce biofouling organisms without affecting fish growth or causing harm to aquatic lifeforms.

The use of N-phenylmaleimide based antifoulants has increased significantly since they were introduced as an active ingredient owing to their low toxicity towards humans and animals along with being less expensive than other similar compounds available in the market.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global N-phenylmaleimide market in terms of revenue with a share of over 45.0% in 2017. The region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand from end-use industries, such as automotive and construction, coupled with rising foreign investments in these regions.

The growing automobile industry across Asia Pacific has led to an increase in product demand for antifouling and other additives applications, which is anticipated to drive the regional market growth over the forecast period. China emerged as a major producer of automobiles on account of low production cost coupled with easy availability of raw materials such as aluminum and steel; whereas Japan was one among top five producers based on unit vehicle volume sold globally in 2017.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from end-use industries such as automotive, aerospace, and electronics
  • Growing popularity of n-phenylmaleimide in medical applications
  • Rising investments by key players in R&D to develop new products and applications
  • Expansion of manufacturing capacities by key players to cater to the growing demand
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of n-phenylmaleimide among consumers
