Drivers & Restraints

High Demand for Soaps & Detergents to Spur Growth

The rising demand for surfactants, such as detergents and soaps is set to boost the fatty alcohol market growth in the coming years. Besides, surfactants infused with fatty alcohols are extensively used for numerous purposes in cosmetics, paper & pulp, and agriculture industries. However, raw materials, such as rapeseed oil, palm oil, and tallow are the major raw materials used for the production of fatty alcohols. Fluctuations in their prices may hinder growth.


C15-C22 Segment to Exhibit High Growth Fueled by Rising Demand for Cosmetics

Based on the product, the C6-C10 segment generated 17.3% in terms of the fatty alcohol market share in 2019. The C15-C22 segment is expected to showcase high growth backed by its rising demand from the personal care industry. Apart from that, increasing disposable incomes of people are resulting in the high demand for shaving creams, lipsticks, vanishing creams, shampoos, and lotions. It would also augment the growth of this segment.

Regional Analysis

High Population & Disposable Incomes to Bolster Growth in Asia Pacific

Geographically, in 2019, Asia Pacific held USD 1.47 billion in terms of revenue. This growth is attributable to the increasing demand for fatty alcohols from surfactants, as well as personal care & cosmetics industries. Developing nations, such as South Korea, India, and China are experiencing a high population and disposable incomes of people, thereby leading to growth.

North America, on the other hand, is anticipated to grow considerably stoked by the high demand for home cleaning products and hand sanitizers amid the COVID-19 pandemic. In Europe, the market would grow significantly on account of the surging demand for liquid soaps. As per a survey by Eurostat, approximately 12.6 million tons of detergents & soaps were produced in the European Union in 2018.

Competitive Landscape

Key Players Aim to Increase Production Capacity of Raw Materials to Intensify Competition

The global market for fatty alcohol is highly fragmented. Reputed manufacturers are aiming to develop unique products by conducting research and development activities. Some of the others are trying to increase their production capacity of raw materials required for the manufacturing of fatty alcohols.

Below are the two latest industry developments:

  • July 2019: Sasol Ltd., a chemical and energy company headquartered in South Africa opened its new chemical plant in Nanjing, China. It would double the production capacity of alkoxylation to 150,000 tons annually. The total cost was USD 100 million.

  • May 2019: Apical Group completed a joint venture with Kao Corporation. The former is a leading exporter of palm oil in Indonesia. This venture resulted in the development of PT Apical Kao Chemical, a new factory that will help in surging the production capacity of oleochemicals and in strengthening its position in Asia Pacific.
