Sodium cumenesulfonate is a hydrotope compound, which consists of a hydrophilic part and a hydrophobic part, similar to surfactants. These compounds can get dissolved in water. They are available in powder as well as liquid form. There are several advantages of sodium cumenesulfonate. It increases the solubility for less soluble organic matter; lowers the cloud point of aqueous formulated products, effectively promotes the compatibility of various ingredients present in a multicomponent system, and moderates the viscosity of aqueous formulated products. Sodium cumenesulfonate is used as a solubilizer and cloud point depressor in wax cleaners, air mist drilling, laundry washing, drilling fluids, stimulation fluids, anti-caking agents, and coupling agents in powdered detergents. Sodium cumenesulfonate is also used in metal processing applications, oilfield applications, and hydrogen sulfide scavangers. Cost of sodium cumenesulfonate highly depends on the cost of raw materials. Volatilty in raw material prices is likely to hamper the sodium cumenesulfonate market in the near future. Heavy exposure to sodium cumenesulfonate may cause serious irritation of eyes, irritation of respiratory tract if inhaled, and other health hazards. Increasing industrialization and use of household detergents in emerging economies are factors likely to drive the demand for sodium cumenesulfonate during the forecast period.
Based on form, the global sodium cumenesulfonate market has been classified into powder form and liquid form. However, decline in research and development activities related to sodium cumenesulfonate is likely to hamper the market during the forecast period. The liquid form segment contributed a major share of the market in 2015 and is likely to dominate the market during the forecast period.
Based on application, the global sodium cumenesulfonate market has been segmented into industrial & institutional, household, oilfield, laundry & cleaning, and others. Use of sodium cumenesulfonate as a detergent and cleaner for household application is growing. The household segment contributed a major share of the market in 2015 and is likely to be a dominant segment during the forecast period. Industrial and institutional is another lucrative segment of the market. It is anticipated to witness moderate growth during the forecast period. Growing population leads to rapid increase in industrialization. This is a key factor expected to drive the sodium cumenesulfonate market during the forecast period. The industrial & institutional application segment is likely to register the maximum CAGR during the forecast period.
Asia Pacific constituted a major share of the global sodium cumenesulfonate market in 2015 and the trend is likely to be continue during the forecast period. The market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. Rising industrialization in emerging economies of the region is projected to raise the demand for sodium cumenesulfonate during the forecast period. The sodium cumenesulfonate market in Europe and North America, which is already at a mature stage, is likely to witness sluggish growth during the forecast period. The market in Asia Pacific is estimated to expand at the maximum CAGR during the forecast period, followed by Middle East & Africa. Growing hospitality sector leads to use of detergents and cleaning chemicals to maintain cleanliness. This factor is expected to propel the demand for sodium cumenesulfonate aids in Middle East & Africa during the forecast period.
