The maleic anhydride market is estimated to be worth USD 3.42 Billion in 2014 and is projected to reach USD 5.08 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 6.8% between 2015 and 2020. In this report, 2014 is considered as the base year and forecast period is between 2015 and 2020. The global maleic anhydride market has been segmented on the basis of raw material, application, and region. UPR is expected to play a key role in fueling the growth of the overall maleic anhydride market owing to the increasing demand from the end use industries. It accounted for the largest market share in the global market in 2014. UPR is projected to be the fastest-growing application from 2015 to 2020. N-Butane is the most preferred raw material owing to the low cost and increasing rules and regulation for the use of benzene.

In this report, market sizes have been derived using both bottom-up and top-down approaches. First, the market size for each raw material (n-butane and benzene) for various regions (North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and RoW) and countries have been identified using secondary and primary research. The overall market sizes for various regions and countries have been calculated by adding these individual markets. Regional level synthetic lubricant market sizes have been further broken down on the basis application using percentage split gathered during the research. For future growth (CAGR) trends of the maleic anhydride market, the application industry – automotive, marine, construction & manufacturing, and others have been analyzed. Findings of this study were verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key officials such as CEOs, VPs, Directors, and executives. The breakdown of profiles of primary interviewees is depicted in the below figure:

The global maleic anhydride market is projected to be worth USD 5.08 Billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 6.8% between 2015 and 2020. This high growth is owed to the increasing demand for UPR and 1,4-BDO. More than 50% of maleic anhydride is used in the manufacture of UPR. Also, the rapid growth of the end use industries in emerging nations is one of the factors driving the growth of the market.

The UPR application dominated the maleic anhydride market, and is projected to register the highest growth rate in the overall market. The growing end-use industries such as automotive, construction & manufacturing, and marine are expected to drive the increasing demand for the maleic anhydride in the emerging nations. The improved living standards in emerging economies are contributing to the growth of the global market.

The maleic anhydride market is classified on the basis of raw material into – n-butane and benzene. Maleic anhydride is produced by the oxidation of N-Butane or Benzene in the presence of specific catalyst. The maleic anhydride market is dominated by n-butane because of its low production cost, and environmentally friendly nature. Earlier benzene was the primary feedstock used to produce maleic anhydride using oxidation process. However, the increasing government regulations, high production cost, complex operation, and awareness about toxicity of benzene, manufacturers preferred n-butane for the production of maleic anhydride. N-Butane accounts for a share of about 90% of the maleic anhydride market, by value, in 2014. It is expected to dominate the market in the next five years.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest market for maleic anhydride. It is also the fastest-growing market for maleic anhydride due to high demand from major markets such as China, India, and Japan. The growing automotive industry in the Asia-Pacific region is also driving the market for maleic anhydride.

Maleic Anhydride Market

The major factor restraining the growth of the maleic anhydride market is increasing use of green chemicals as an alternative for maleic anhydride. Maleic anhydride is petroleum derived organic chemical intermediate, which is both, costly and environmentally unfriendly. Hence, the use of bio based succinic acid as an alternative for the maleic anhydride is increasing in the industries. Additionally, the increasing regulations for maleic anhydride at federal state as well as local level are responsible for the reducing global market share of maleic anhydride.

Some of the important maleic anhydride companies are Huntsman International LLC. (U.S.), Changzhou Yabang Chemical Co. Ltd. (China), Zibo Qixiang Tengda Chemical (China), Ningbo Jiangning Chemical (China), Lanxess AG (U.S.), Polynt (Italy), Thirumalai Chemicals Ltd. (India), Ashland Inc. (U.S.), Flint Hills Resources (U.S.), Nippon Shokubai Co., Ltd. (Japan), Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (Japan), Bartek Ingredients Inc. (Japan), Bluestar Harbin Petrochemical Corp (China), and others. The players in this market need to compete with each other with respect to prices and offering wide product range to meet the market requirements.
