SLS, SLES, and LAS are the types of anionic surfactants that are employed as primary surfactants in industrial and household detergents, personal care products, and various other applications in agriculture and paints & coatings industries, etc. Based on product, the SLS, SLES, and LAS market can be segmented into Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate (SLES) (also known as Sodium Laureth Sulfate), and Linear Alkylbenzene Sulfonate (LAS). 

LAS was the largest product segment of the SLS, SLES, and LAS market, accounting for more than 75% share in 2015. LAS is a widely employed surfactant among detergent and personal care product manufacturers as compared to SLS and SLES, owing to its low price and less toxic nature. LAS is also projected to be the fastest growing product segment, expanding at a CAGR of 4.3% from 2016 to 2024. Growth of LAS can primarily be attributed to the rising demand for LAS in household detergents and personal care products due to its better foaming, wetting, emulsification, and mildness properties compared to SLS and SLES. Detergents & cleaners was the largest application segment of the SLS, SLES, and LAS market with more than 65% share in 2015. In terms of volume, it is also expected to be the fastest growing application segment, expanding at a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period. Increase in demand for household & industrial detergents and cleaning agents is anticipated to drive the SLS, SLES, and LAS market during the forecast period.    

In terms of region, Asia Pacific was the largest segment of the global SLS, SLES, and LAS market in 2015. Growth of the region is primarily ascribed to the rising demand for detergents and personal care products such as shampoos, shower gels, and cosmetics. In terms of volume, Asia Pacific accounted for more than 40% share of the global SLS, SLES, and LAS market in 2015. It is also projected to be the fastest growing market for SLS, SLES, and LAS during the forecast period. Demand for SLS, SLES, and LAS in the region is estimated to be primarily driven by increase in consumption of household detergents and personal care products in China, India, and Japan. The SLS, SLES, and LAS market in Middle East & Africa is expected to expand at a significant rate during the forecast period. The SLS, SLES, and LAS market in North America is also projected to witness moderate growth during the forecast period. The market for SLS, SLES, and LAS in Europe is mature; hence, it is likely to witness average growth. The SLS, SLES, and LAS market in Latin America is projected to expand considerably during the forecast period, largely due to the growth in personal care, agrochemicals, and other industrial applications.

 The global SLS, SLES, and LAS market is primarily driven by the increase in demand for household detergents and personal care products. However, factors such as toxic effects of SLS, SLES, and LAS on people and environment and availability of bio-based surfactants are projected to hamper market growth. Focus on innovation through R&D activities is expected to act as an opportunity for the SLS, SLES, and LAS market during the forecast period. Key players in the SLS, SLES, and LAS market include Croda International Plc., Clariant, Solvay, Huntsman International LLC, Stepan Company, Henkel AG & Co. KGaA, Galaxy Surfactants, BASF SE, The Chemours Company, The Dow Chemical Company, Kao Corporation, Oxiteno, Godrej Industries Limited, Taiwan NJC Corporation, Ltd., Evonik Industries AG, and Akzo Noble N.V. Global SLS, SLES, and LAS Market, Volume Share, by Product, 2015 and 2024
