Dioctyl Maleate (DOM) can be used in organic synthesis, like the production ofderivatives of succinic acid. It is also used as a comonomer in vinyl and acrylic emulsionpolymerization for paints and adhesives.
The global dioctyl maleate market size was valued at $242.6 million in 2018, and is projectedto reach $326.1 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 3.7% from 2019 to 2026. Increase indemand for textile coatings from the textile industry, owing to surge in production ofwaterproof and heat-resistant apparel and fabrics is expected to boost the demand for DOM,thereby driving the growth of the global DOM market.
