Behenyl alcohol (CAS: 661-19-8), often referred to as docosanol, is a saturated fatty alcohol used to thicken and stabilise formulations. Behenyl alcohol is categorised on the basis of purity level. Behenyl alcohol with the purity level of 70% is most commonly used. However, behenyl alcohol with purity over 80% is very rarely used. Behenyl alcohol accounted for a mere 1.4% share of the overall fatty alcohols market, and 14% share of the overall C16+ fatty alcohols market in 2014.

Increasing consumption of cosmetics product, especially anti-aging products, is expected to boost demand for behenyl alcohol in Europe. Though market seems optimistic for behenyl alcohol, oversupply of fatty alcohol is seen as a major challenge for the behenyl alcohol market currently.

Though behenyl alcohol is gaining traction among the cosmetic manufacturers, its relatively high price compared to other long chain fatty alcohols is proving to be a major hindrance to its overall market growth and consumption. The product is normally used in blended form with other long chain fatty alcohols such as cetyl alcohol and stearyl alcohol. In Latin America, the increase in behenyl alcohol volume production is attributed to growing market size of organic cosmetics in Brazil. Brazil is one of the largest importers of behenyl alcohol from suppliers in Europe and Asia Pacific. Emollients, emulsifiers and thickeners are the key applications wherein behenyl alcohol is used.

Globally, Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the market throughout the forecast period and is projected to witness a 1.4X increase in its volume production by the end of 2021. While Japan and India are two major exporters of behenyl alcohol chemicals globally, South Korea is one of the key importers of behenyl alcohol in Asia Pacific. In Asia Pacific, India is the largest producer of rapeseed and behenyl alcohol. A Large number of companies based in the country export rapeseed to North America, Europe and other parts of Asia.

Among the end-use segments, behenyl alcohol finds the largest application in the cosmetics industry, followed by pharmaceuticals and others.
