Increase in penetration of surfactant-based industries and easy availability of feedstock for fatty alcohols is driving the global fatty alcohols market
The global fatty alcohols market is estimated at USD 4.72 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 6.01 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.0% between 2017 and 2022. The market is witnessing growth due to the increasing consumption of fatty alcohols in surfactant-based industries such as personal care & cosmetics and soaps & detergents, as well as the flexibility in feedstock accessibility and extensive use of fatty alcohols in emerging clusters of Asia Pacific. Increasing consumer preference for bio-based and renewable resources-based products is also estimated to offer lucrative opportunities for the growth of the fatty alcohols market. Surplus production of fatty alcohols leading to a scenario of saturation and supply glut is a major factor restraining the growth of the market. The instability in the raw material prices is challenging the growth of the global fatty alcohols market.

Pure & midcut fatty alcohols: The fastest-growing segment of the fatty alcohols market, by type
Pure & midcut fatty alcohols is estimated to be the fastest-growing type segment during the forecast period (2017-2022). The rapid growth of the pure & midcut fatty alcohols segment is attributed to their extensive usage in manufacturing Linear Alkylbenzene Sulfonate (LAS), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS), and Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate (SLES), which are the key ingredients in many personal care products such as shampoos, creams, lotions, and dishwashing liquids. Thus, the growing consumption of fatty alcohols in manufacturing the aforementioned products to serve the beauty & personal care industry drives the market of pure & midcut fatty alcohols market globally.

Personal Care: The fastest-growing segment of the fatty alcohols market, by application
Personal care is projected to be the fastest-growing application segment of the fatty alcohols market during the forecast period. Fatty alcohols are used to fabricate surfactants which have effective cleaning and emulsifying properties. They are used in skin and hair care products. There has been an increase in the consumer demand for environment and skin friendly products which are affordable, have superior quality, and enhance the overall physical appearance. Such factors are expected to lead to the high growth rate of the personal care application worldwide.

Asia Pacific: The fastest-growing market for fatty alcohols, by region
The Asia Pacific region is estimated to be the fastest-growing market for fatty alcohols during the forecast period. The growth of the fatty alcohols market in Asia Pacific is due to the presence of wide-scale industrial manufacturing base of fatty alcohols in the region. Southeast Asian countries provide optimum climatic conditions for palm plantation which gives palm oil, the primary feedstock for fatty alcohols. The increasing market penetration opportunities, abundant availability of raw materials, and less stringent environmental laws and regulations as compared to the Western countries drive the market for fatty alcohols in the region.
