Cetostearyl Alcohol Market Forecast and CAGR

According to the most recent study conducted by Fact.MR, the cetostearyl alcohol market is expected to develop at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2021 to 2031. It's a mixture of fatty alcohols whose primary components are stearyl alcohol and cetyl, both of which have a wide range of applications in a variety of industries, including pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. It gives the skin a smooth gel-like texture and can be used with oil-in-water or water-in-oil emulsions.

Consumers' increasing interest in personal care and health wellbeing has been identified as one of the primary driving factors for increased requests around the world.

What is the Driving Demand for Cetostearyl Alcohol?

The beauty and pharmaceutical industries are driving demand for the product. It's used in cosmetics as an emollient, emulsifier, thickening, and carrier for other ingredients. The majority of its demand comes from hair care products like shampoos and conditioners, where it is used as a surfactant agent, and in soaps, where it is used as a thickening agent, primarily those manufactured from vegetable oils.

Increasing disposable income has boosted demand for beauty and personal care products in growing nations around the world, which is one of the key drivers driving this industry's growth.

It is also widely used in the pharmaceutical industry as a component of ointments, creams, or emulsifying waxes. It is extensively used in medicines like Diclofenac Sodium Extended as an anti-inflammatory drug, in Levetiracetam Extended to treat epilepsy and in Morphine Sulfate Extended to treat chronic pain among others.

These above-mentioned factors help propel the demand for the product, especially in the cosmetic industry in the forecast period.

Covid-19 Impact on Global Cetostearyl Alcohol Market

Toward the start of 2020, COVID-19 started to spread throughout the world, and a large number of citizens were infected with the COVID-19 virus, and significant nations throughout the world have implemented isolation and work stoppage orders. Except for the clinical supplies and life support products manufacturers, most businesses had been significantly affected, and thereby the cetostearyl alcohol market had also been greatly affected during the same era.

However, the market for cetostearyl alcohol gained its pace due to its usage as an emulsion stabilizer, opacifying agent, surfactant - foam booster, and viscosity increasing agent which made it a highly desired chemical in the pharmaceutical industry during the pandemic, which helped to boost its sales.

During the pandemic, the cosmetics industry saw a shift in the demand pattern with consumers shifting their choices from makeup products to hygiene and health care products. As a result, products such as shampoos and conditioners which use cetostearly alcohol as a component saw a decline in demand.
