Dimethylolpropionic Acid (DMPA) Market is expected to surpass US$ 289.8 Mn in 2019 and estimated to expand at a CAGR exceeding 8% through 2031 1


Increasing demand from the paints and coatings sector for water soluble resins and coatings is a key factor expected to fuel the demand for dimethylolpropionic acid. According to a new study by Future Market Insights (FMI), the market for dimethylolpropionic acid is set to rise with a promising CAGR of over 8% through the end of the assessment period in 2031.

The global demand for dimethylolpropionic acids has rapidly gained traction owing to increasing application and awareness in terms of polyurethane dispersions. Strict government regulations associated with emissions and VOC content in coatings will positively influence long-term demand. Also, the material provides benefits on the basis of dye receptivity and coating adhesive properties.

Demand for Non-Toxic Coating Solutions Drive Developments

Dimethylolpropionic acid displays properties such as resin with water solubility or dispersibility following neutralization with a base. The material also enables ease of introducing polar groups to boost coating adhesion performance, and synthetic fiber dye receptivity, while also focusing on alkali solubility of deposited films.

Dimethylolpropionic acid also improved hydrolytic stability, as a minimal coupling solvent, with early water spot resistance in terms of air-dried resin applications. The material also finds use as a modifier for superior gloss, higher impact resistance, and flow properties associated with epoxy-polyester systems thereby improving coating flexibility.

Furthermore, the compound is also used as a neutralizing acid in cathodic electrodeposition processes as a source of free acid groups in anodic electrodeposition resins in addition to niche applications as an intermediate in the production of perfumes, pharmaceuticals, and dye formulations.
