Alcohol Ether Sulfates Market Introduction
Alcohol ether sulfates market comprises of a vast range of alcohol ether sulfates that differ in their molecular weights and that are mostly ethylene based. Alcohol ether sulfates form one of the three largest categories of anionic surfactants besides linear alkyl benzene sulfonates and alpha olefin sulfonates. Furthermore, alcohol ether sulfates exhibit many advantageous properties such as emulsification, decontamination, and hard water resistance. These properties including foam production offered by alcohol ether sulfates makes them highly applicable in the production of consumer products such as shampoos, soaps, liquid soaps, and detergents among others. Besides being used as foaming agents in personal care and cosmetics and detergent industries, alcohol ether sulfates are also used as wetting agents in the textile industries.
Alcohol Ether Sulfates Market Dynamics
Alcohol Ether Sulfates Market Drivers
Alcohol ether sulfates are mostly produced from coconut oils or palm oils. This gives them an advantage over other petroleum based surfactants for being bio-based and biodegradable. This factor is one of the key factor driving the growth of global alcohol ether sulfates markets. Consumers are becoming more aware towards the contents and ingredients of the products they use and hence are more inclined towards natural and bio-based ingredients with least or no side effects. As a consequence of this shift in trend, manufacturers of personal care and cosmetics consumer products are demanding bio-based products more compared to other conventional ingredients as it will help them cater customer demands.
Moreover, the global personal care industry has witnessed a significant growth over the past years. As a result of developing economies, increasing manufacturing, and rising per-capita income coupled with increasing disposable income, the sales of personal care and cosmetics has grown significantly. Consequently, the production capacity of personal care and cosmetics has increased and this is expected to create a significant demand for alcohol ether sulfates as a personal care ingredient.
Alcohol Ether Sulfates Market Restraints
The anionic surfactant market is wide that comprise of many other products with similar benefits and features compared to alcohol ether sulfates such as alpha olefin sulfonates (AOS) and linear alkyl benzene sulfonates (LAS). These products are also preferred by the end-users significantly and hence they offer a potential competition to alcohol ether sulfates. Therefore, the availability of other alternatives to alcohol ether sulfates is one of the key restraining factor against the growth of global alcohol ether sulfates market.
