Rising Spending on Discretionary Products Fuels demand for Phenoxyethanol

Rising spending by consumers on discretionary items gives the biggest fillip to the global phenoxyethanol market. Given the scenario, growing disposable incomes will attract considerable opportunities for the market. Phenoxyethanol is supplanting formaldehyde donor preservatives in a fast and efficient manner, leading to their increasing application in personal care products. “Phenoxyethanol has excellent antimicrobial properties and can act against various microorganisms, which is why their use in both rinse-off and leave on personal care products has increased,” said a lead TMR analyst. Furthermore, phenoxyethanol is preferred due to its low sensitization, which has also earned it approval from around the world.  In addition to personal care products, phenoxyethanol is also used as a solvent in cosmetic ingredients.

Increasing Use in Cosmetic Industry Boosts Growth Prospects

In the coming years, the market is expected to witness rising demand from the cosmetic industry. Driven by this, it will exhibit a steady growth worldwide. Phenoxyethanol is also used as a preservative in cleaners due to its effectiveness against gram-positive and negative bacteria. Also, its application in active pharmaceutical ingredients has considerably increased and so has its use to anaesthetize ornamental fish during transportation. Despite its non-toxic nature, phenoxyethanol is associated with reproductive disorders, endocrine disruptions, and cancers. This is a key factor hampering the global phenoxyethanol market.
