Europe Alkyl Polyglucoside Historical Market Outlook (2015-2021) vs Growth Forecast (2022-2032)

According to alkyl polyglucoside industry study, the value of the European alkyl polyglucoside business rose at a 3.9% CAGR from 2017 to 2021, with Germany holding substantial market share. Personal care product makers' preference for bio-surfactants is growing, paving the way for the market to expand rapidly in the medium- and long-term projection period. Automated washing machines are commonly utilized for laundry operations in Europe. The European alkyl polyglycoside market is dominated by household detergents.

Furthermore, consumers are growing more concerned with boosting the efficacy and efficiency of laundry operations, which has increased demand for home care items. Because non-ionic surfactants, such as alkyl polyglycoside surfactants, are the principal raw materials utilized in the manufacturing of detergents, rising demand for laundry detergents is likely to drive market expansion in Europe. The market for alkyl polyglucosides is expected to grow at a high CAGR of 5% through 2032.

Development of the Personal Care and Cosmetics Industry, particularly in Large European Countries to Support Europe Market Growth

Consumption of alkyl polyglucoside in Europe is being driven by the rise of the personal care and cosmetic business, notably in major European nations, as well as customer preferences for natural home care products.

Germany is Europe's largest personal care and cosmetics market, followed by France and the United Kingdom. Because of their accessible location and vast assortment of mass-market beauty products, drug shops are regarded as the major distribution channel in the German beauty and personal care business. Furthermore, the region's strong expansion in the industrial sector is likely to boost demand for the product.

Consumer Awareness of the Importance of Organically Derived Goods in Home Care Product Applications projected to Fuel Market Expansion

Growing consumer awareness of the value of organically derived goods in home care product applications is expected to drive market growth. Several players have been noted to make ongoing attempts to produce products generated from renewable sources by reducing the usage of potentially dangerous compounds such as parabens, phthalates, and aluminum salts.

Concerning the environmental dangers of inorganic surfactants, the sector has been governed by strict rules imposed by regional bodies such as REACH, CEFIC, and ECHA. The widespread use of this bio-based surfactant, given the product's low toxicity, also conforms to regional enforcement agencies' requirements. Because of the aforementioned causes, the region's demand for alkyl polyglycoside is predicted to rise throughout the forecast period.

Why is Home Care Use of Alkyl Polyglucosides more Important than Personal Care?

The application of alkyl polyglucosides in home care goods is diverse, and the amount of alkyl polyglucosides used per home care product produced is large when compared to personal care products. Homecare applications will account for a significant share of the Europe market share in 2020.

Aside from the rate of usage of alkyl polyglucosides in manufacturing, the rate of consumption of home care downstream goods is higher in volume than personal care. These variables have a significant impact on the demand for alkyl poly glucoside.

Higher potential of home care goods such as disinfectants and cleansers was noted in FY2020, owing to preventive measures taken by not only people but also by institutions, which has produced a spike in the output and raised demand by 10 times. During the projected period, demand for home care products is predicted to expand at a CAGR of over 5%.

Which Primary Function is the Most Desired for Alkyl Polyglucoside?

The following findings have been prepared based on the most recent in-depth alkyl polyglucoside business study on the numerous key uses of alkyl polyglucosides.

Alkyl polyglucoside emulsifying agents account for around 25% of the market based on their features and principal purpose, whereas degreasing agents have demonstrated a higher CAGR of 5.7% during the historical time frame. Furthermore, degreasing chemicals are likely to gain a significant market share following wetting agents in the next years.
