Alkyl aryl sulfonate is distinguished as an anionic compound. Anionic surfactants contain an anionic functional group. Surfactant is a compound, which reduces surface tension between two liquids. It also lowers surface tension between solid and liquid or gas and liquid. Surfactant provides characteristic of wetting agents, detergents, foaming agents, and emulsifiers. Alkyl aryl sulfonates are primarily derived by the sulfonation process with hydrocarbons. The compound is also called detergent alkylates. Anionic surfactant are primarily used in pigment dispersants for water-based and oil-based paints. Other applications are heavy duty cleaning, latex manufacturing, light-duty cleaning, and latex frothing agent. Alkyl aryl sulfonate is an essential compound in enhanced oil recovery process, especially in crude oil extraction. Extraction of crude oil involves injecting a blend of specialty surfactants into the reserves in order to recover the maximum crude oil.
Increase in awareness about cleanliness in order to improve personal hygiene and rise in demand for detergents, soaps, and shampoo are expected to propel the demand for alkyl aryl sulfonate during the forecast period. Alkyl aryl sulfonates are widely used in the manufacture of synthetic detergent products by major international companies. This is a key factor expected to fuel the market in the next few years. Rise in disposable income and changing consumer lifestyle are anticipated to boost the alkyl aryl sulfonate market during the forecast period.
Alkyl aryl sulfonate Market: Segmentation
