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

Market Definition:

The Fatty Alcohols Market size was valued at USD 5.69 billion in 2020 and is predicted to reach USD 8.44 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 4.5% from 2021-2030. Fatty alcohols are similar to fatty acids and is produced either from a wide range of vegetable oils and fats or various petrochemical sources like ethylene. They are usually straight-chain primary alcohols with high-molecular-weight and number of atoms as few as 4–6 to as many as 22–26. Fatty alcohols are colorless oily liquids or waxy solids, and are amphipathic in nature. It acts as non-ionic surfactants and is majorly used as emollients, thickeners, emulsifiers, and lubricating agents in various skincare products. Fatty alcohols are also used in the production of detergents, cleaners, inks, cosmetics, personal care, plasticizers, pharmaceuticals, foods, and nutrition products.

Market Dynamics and Trends:

The demand for fatty alcohol is increasing as it is widely used in home care and personal care products. They are used in a variety of products such as conditioner, shower gel, deodorants, colin, antiperspirant, shampoo, and lipstick. Also, factor such as increased demand for hand sanitizers and liquid soaps post Covid-19 outbreak has substantially boosted the demand of fatty alcohol and is expected to propel the growth of the market during the forecast period.

However, high manufacturing cost and fluctuation in the prices of raw materials such as palm oil, tallow and rapeseed oils are the factors expected to restrain the market growth to some extent. On the other hand, increasing awareness among consumers regarding the benefits of bio-based products owing to the toxicities caused by petrochemical-based substitutes is likely to encourage consumers to adopt natural products. This in turn is expected to create ample growth opportunities for the market players in the coming years.
