Global Fatty Alcohol Alkoxylates Market - by Type (Oleochemicals, Petrochemicals), by Application (Household Cleaning, Detergent Intermediates, I&I Cleaning, Personal Care, Textiles, and Others), and by Region - Forecast till 2023
Synopsis of Fatty Alcohol Alkoxylates Market
Fatty alcohol alkoxylates (FAA) is a class of non-ionic surfactants, which is readily biodegradable in nature with minimal toxicity as compared to its counterparts. It is mainly produced by the alkoxylation of fatty alcohols with addition of ethylene oxide (EO) and propylene oxide (PO). Fatty alcohol alkoxylates have a wide range of applications such as wetting agents, emulsifiers, and dispersion applications among others and it is consumed across an array of industries viz., household cleaning, industrial & institutional cleaning, detergent intermediates, textile, and personal care among others for the latter applications. Fatty alcohols from the natural and synthetic production routes are used in the preparation of fatty alcohol alkoxylates. On the basis of carbon chain distribution in each type of fatty alcohol alkoxylates, it is used for different applications across different industries. For instance, the long chain alcohol alkoxylates such as C16 and C18 are widely consumed in personal care industry as surfactants and cream base.
The need for biodegradable and non-toxic surfactants from the prominent end-users of fatty alcohol alkoxylates viz., household cleaning and I&I cleaning coupled with the penetration of the latter end-user industries in the developing markets along with the growth of personal care industry are some of the market impetus factors fostering growth of global fatty alcohol alkoxylate market includes, are some growth prospects associated with the growth of global fatty alcohol alkoxylates market. Also, trends such as capacity expansion and expansion of cosmetic manufacturers to the developing markets is anticipated offer lucrative opportunities for fatty alcohol alkoxylate manufacturers. For instance, expansion of cosmetic giant L’Oreal in Egypt to cater the surge in demand for cosmetics and personal care products across Middle East & Africa. According to MRFR analysis, the global fatty alcohol alkoxylates market was valued at USD 564.4 million in 2016 and is expected to be valued at USD 787.8 million by the end of 2023, expanding at a CAGR of 5.0%.
