Fatty Alcohols (C6-C10, C11-C14, C15-C22 and Others) Market for Detergents & Soaps, Personal Care, Plasticizers, Lubricants, and Other Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2023

Fatty alcohols are aliphatic alcohols that are predominantly linear and monohydric. These can be saturated or have one or more double bonds. Based on the raw materials used, fatty alcohols are chiefly classified as synthetic or natural. Synthetic fatty alcohols are produced from petrochemicals such as olefins and paraffin, while natural fatty alcohols are based on renewable resources such as fats, oils, and waxes of plant or animal origin. Based on carbon chain length, fatty alcohols can be broadly classified into C6-C10, C11-C14, C15-C22 and other fatty alcohols. Fatty alcohols are primarily employed in detergents and soaps, personal care and cosmetics, plasticizers, flavors and fragrances, and metal working fluids. Growth in personal care products, and detergents & soaps industries is primarily estimated to drive the global fatty alcohols market in the next few years. However, volatility in prices of raw materials and overproduction of fatty alcohols are projected to hamper market growth during the forecast period. Growing sales of cosmetics and beauty products in BRIC countries is anticipated to offer growth opportunities to the fatty alcohols market from 2015 to 2023.

Chapter 11 Primary Research – Key Findings

Fatty alcohols are aliphatic alcohols that are predominantly linear and monohydric. These can be saturated or have one or more double bonds. Based on the raw materials used, fatty alcohols are chiefly classified as synthetic or natural. Synthetic fatty alcohols are produced from petrochemicals such as olefins and paraffin, while natural fatty alcohols are based on renewable resources such as fats, oils, and waxes of plant or animal origin. Based on carbon chain length, fatty alcohols can be broadly classified into C6-C10, C11-C14, C15-C22 and other fatty alcohols. Fatty alcohols are primarily employed for applications such as detergents and soaps, personal care and cosmetics, plasticizers, flavors and fragrances, and metal working fluids. Increasing demand for personal care products and detergents & soaps in developing regions is expected to boost the demand for fatty alcohols during the forecast period.

In terms of volume, C11-C14 fatty alcohols dominated the market, followed by C15-C22 fatty alcohols in 2014. The dominance of C11-C14 fatty alcohols is anticipated to continue over the next few years, considering the large amount of C11-C14 fatty alcohols used in manufacturing of personal care products and detergents & soaps. C11-C14 fatty alcohols is also estimated to be the fastest growing market segment, followed by C15-C22 fatty alcohols, during the forecast period. Rising population and improvement in lifestyle coupled with high disposable income is anticipated to fuel demand for personal care products in the near future which in turn is expected to boost demand for C15-C22 fatty alcohols.

Detergents & soaps was the largest application segment of the fatty alcohols market, accounting for over 60% share in terms of demand in 2014. The personal care segment is also expected to be a major consumer of fatty alcohols in the next few years. Personal care is anticipated to be the fastest growing application segment of the fatty alcohols market between 2015 and 2023. Rising demand for personal care products and detergents & soaps is anticipated to propel the demand for fatty alcohols during the forecast period. Fatty alcohols are also used in lubricants, plasticizers, flavors & fragrances, etc.

In terms of volume, Asia Pacific held the largest share of the global fatty alcohols market in 2014. The region constituted more than 40% share of the global fatty alcohols market in 2014. Rising population and improvement in lifestyle coupled with high disposable income especially in China and India have boosted the fatty alcohols market in the region. Asia Pacific is also likely to be the fastest growing regional market for fatty alcohols during the forecast period. The fatty alcohols market is anticipated to witness a similar growth trend in Latin America; however, growth is expected to be marginally lower during this decade. Overall, the global market for fatty alcohols is projected to expand at a decent growth rate in the next eight years.
 
The global fatty alcohols market is primarily driven by demand for personal care, and detergents & soaps application segment. However, volatility in prices of raw materials coupled with overproduction of fatty alcohols is estimated to hamper market growth. Growing sales of cosmetics and beauty products in BRIC countries is likely to act as an opportunity for the fatty alcohols market in the next eight years. The market for fatty alcohols is consolidated. Key players in this market are Sasol Limited, Royal Dutch Shell plc, Kao Corporation, Kuala Lumpur Kepong Berhad (KLK), Ecogreen Oleochemicals, Procter & Gamble Emery Oleochemicals, VVF L.L.C., Musim Mas Holdings, and Wilmar International Ltd.
