The global SLS, SLES, and LAS market is expected to grow from $10.09 billion in 2022 to $10.72 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.2%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, a surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, causing inflation across goods and services and affecting many markets across the globe. The SLS, SLES, and LAS market is expected to reach $13.05 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 5%.
The SLS, SLES, and LAS market consists of sales of dry and liquid forms of sodium lauryl sulfate.Values in this market are ‘factory gate’ values, that is the value of goods sold by the manufacturers or creators of the goods, whether to other entities (including downstream manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, and retailers) or directly to end customers.
The value of goods in this market includes related services sold by the creators of the goods.
Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), sodium lauryl ether sulfate, and linear alkyl benzene sulfonate (LAS) are surfactants that lower water surface tension and aid in the cleansing and lathering of items. They emulsify cleaning agents in household cleaning products (laundry detergents, spray cleaners, and dishwasher detergents).
Asia-Pacific was the largest region in the SLS, SLES, and LAS market in 2022.Latin America is expected to be the fastest-growing region in the forecast period.
The regions covered in the SLS, SLES, and LAS market report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.
The main product types of SLS, SLES, and LAS include SLS, SLES, and LAS.Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) is an anionic surfactant commonly used as an emulsifying cleaning agent in household cleaning products such as laundry detergents, spray cleaners, and dishwasher detergents.
They are produced using coco-based and inorganic-based manufacturing processes and are used in applications such as detergents and cleaners, personal care, oilfield chemicals, textile and leather, paints and coatings, and others.
Increasing awareness about personal hygiene in the SLS, SLES, and LAS industries is expected to boost the growth of the SLS, SLES, and LAS markets going forward. Maintaining one’s body and clothing in a clean state is known as personal hygiene, and it is done to promote overall health and well-being.SLS, SLES, and LAS are the anionic surfactants used as emulsifying cleaning agents in household cleaning products (laundry detergents, spray cleaners, and dishwasher detergents). Hence, increasing awareness about personal hygiene is expected to boost the SLS, SLES, and LAS markets. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), a Switzerland-based United Nations agency responsible for public health, In 2020, 54% of the world’s population—4.2 billion people—used a sanitation service that was safely managed; 34%—2.6 billion people—used privately owned facilities that were connected to sewers and treated wastewater; 20%—1.6 billion people—utilised latrines or toilets where waste was safely disposed of on the premises; and 78%—6.1 billion people—used at least a basic sanitation service. Therefore, increasing awareness about personal hygiene in the manufacturing industry is driving the growth of the SLS, SLES, and LAS markets.
Technological advancements in the SLS, SLES and LAS markets have emerged as a key trend gaining popularity in the SLS, SLES, and LAS markets.Major companies operating in the SLS, SLES, and LAS markets are focused on innovating new technologies to sustain their position in the market.
For instance, in June 2020, Pilot Chemical, a US-based speciality chemical company, launched Calfoam ES-701 10 MAX and Calfoam ES-702 10 MAX, drop-in solutions designed to help formulators stay in compliance with new 1,4-dioxane end-use product regulations.Calfoam ES-701 10 MAX and Calfoam ES-702 10 MAX are 70% active sodium lauryl ether sulfate solutions with a 1,4-dioxane specification below ten ppm.
High-active ether sulfates offer economical storage of sodium laureth sulfate for dilution to the level used in finished products.
In April 2022, Indorama Ventures Public Company Limited (IVL), a Thailand-based sustainable chemical company, acquired Oxiteno for an undisclosed amount.With the acquisition, Indorama Ventures expanded its growth profile into desirable markets in Latin America and the United States, becoming the Americas’ surfactant producer with additional potential to expand in Europe and Asia.
Oxiteno is a Brazil-based manufacturer of chemicals and surfactants, which include sulfates such as sodium lauryl sulfate.
