Esters Market Grows On Back Of Bio-Based Alternatives, Says FMI

VALLEY COTTAGE, N.Y. – Consumption of esters has been significantly growing in across sectors on back of multi-functional properties. Ester-based fluids, including phosphate esters are being utilized in fire extinguishing lubricants for multi-fuel gas turbines, and steel mills hydraulic fluids. In addition, phosphate esters deliver high resilience against compression in hydro-electric servo systems. Silicate esters are being considerably utilized for low-temperature refrigeration compressor lubrication owing to great low-temperature aspects.

On the contrary, application of esters in oil- and water-based lubricants is facing wrath of regulatory bodies due to release of harmful VOCs (Volatile Organic Compound) and particulate matter. As such, manufacturers are shifting towards bio-based alternatives, such as sucrose esters, and fatty acid esters.

Consumers are preferring food and drinks that impart unique flavors. As esters reveal fruity smell, they are used as food additives for adding exotic flavors to beverages, and bakery products.

Preview Analysis of 2019 Analysis and Review of Easters Market by Product – Dibasic Esters, Polyol Esters, Methyl Esters, Nitrate Esters, Vinyl Esters, Phosphate Esters, Acrylic Esters, Sucrose Esters, and Fatty Acid Esters for 2019 – 2029:

This study finds that the growing industry of food & beverages reflect the need for further innovation, particularly in taste, and odor. As such, esters are set to gain prominence as a solvent in various formulations.

Vital Ingredient in Automotive Lubricants

Esters are characterized by low temperature fluidity and clean operation at escalated temperatures, which make them highly preferred base stock in formulating lubricants. In addition, esters aid in enhancing overall mechanical efficacy. As conventional lubricants are facing backlash from various organizations, esters have emerged as perfect environmentally-friendly alternative.
