Industry:  Materials & Chemicals | Publish Date: Dec 2022 | No of Pages:  N/A | No. Tables:  N/A | No. Figures:  N/A

Market Definition:

The Fatty Acid Esters Market size was valued at USD 2.37 billion in 2020 and is predicted to reach USD 3.65 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 4.3% from 2021-2030. Fatty acid ester is the type of esters synthesized through dehydration of fatty acid and alkyl alcohol. It is mainly derived from sources such as animal tallow and vegetable oil. Fatty acid esters are used in several industries due to its characteristics such as lubricating properties, solvency and resistance to oxidation. Fatty acid esters are mainly used in the bio-fuel applications, food & beverages, personal care, animal feed, cosmetic, and skincare products among others.

Market Dynamics and Trends:

The demand for fatty acid esters has been increasing in the manufacturing of cosmetic and personal care products due to its emollient and thickener qualities, which in turn is driving the global fatty acid ester market growth. Also, factors such as growing public awareness about the benefits of bio-based fatty acid esters and their utilization in various applications such as lubricant additives in metal cutting, hydraulic, and automotive are expected to propel the growth of the market during the forecast period. Moreover, growing obesity rate across the world, increased government interference for support, and reducing rates of edible oils are also some of the factors boosting the market growth. Furthermore, technological advancements have paved the way for higher efficiency and sustainable production of these esters.

However, high cost of raw materials and increasing demand for synthetic lubricants due to its cost-effectiveness are factors expected to restrain the market growth to some extent. On the other hand, growing dependence on fossil fuel and depleting fossil fuel reserves have pushed countries to look for alternative sources of fuel. This is expected to create lucrative growth opportunities for the fatty acid ester market players in future, as fatty acid ester is a major raw material used in biodiesel production.
