Increasing demand from personal care and industrial & domestic cleaning applications will drive the overall growth of the fatty alcohols market

It is driven by various factors, such as increasing demand for fatty alcohols from personal care, industrial & domestic cleaning, plasticizers, lubricants, and pharmaceutical formulation, among other applications. The growth of these industries is expected to further propel the growth of the market during the forecast period. However, factors, such as surplus production of fatty alcohols leading to oversupply, are likely to hinder the growth of the market.

Pure and mid-cut segment is likely to drive the global market during the forecast period

The fatty alcohols market has been segmented on the basis of type as short-chain, pure & mid-cut, short-chain, and higher chain. The pure and mid-cut segment accounted for the larger share of the market during the forecast period. The market growth in this segment is attributed to their extensive use in manufacturing sodium laureth sulfate (SLS) and sodium lauryl ether sulfate (SLES), which are present in various personal care products such as soaps, shampoos, toothpastes, and others. These factors are expected to increase demand during the forecast period.

Industrial & domestic cleaning segment is expected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period

The industrial & domestic cleaning segment is growing rapidly owing to improved standards of living and an increase in the purchasing power parity of low-income groups in emerging economies such as APAC. Furthermore, the demand for industrial & domestic cleaning is increasing as it uses fatty alcohols as a foam controller, emollient, antistatic agent, and a pacifier in powders and liquid products, to maintain a healthier and safer environment.

APAC is expected to record the highest growth rate during the forecast period

APAC is expected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period due to significant developments in various end-use applications such as personal care, industrial & domestic cleaning, and pharmaceutical formulation. The growing population and economic growth in major countries, such as China, India, and Japan, and growing disposable income will also drive the market. Western Europe is projected to be the second-largest market during the forecast period.
