Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate Consumption Analysis (2017-2021) Vs. Market Outlook (2022-2032)

Sodium cocoyl glutamate is a mild primary surfactant that is accepted as a natural ingredient by the Natural Products Association. This mild vegetable-based surfactant and foaming ingredient is derived from palm kernel oil or coconut oil and delivers exceptional lather in personal care formulations.

Sodium cocoyl glutamate is often used in hair care products to make them soft and silky. The high foaming power and unique cleansing property of the product allow for its usage in skincare products and the personal care industry in soaps and cleansers.

Several advantages gained with the use of sodium cocoyl glutamate are likely to support market expansion and provide a gain of 210 BPS by 2032.

  • Short-run (2022 Q2 to 2025): Because of the advantages and benefits offered by sodium cocoyl glutamate in hair care and other personal care applications, demand is set to rise in the short term.
  • Medium-run (2025-2028): Sodium cocoyl glutamate demand is anticipated to witness an increase in East Asia and South Asia & Oceania because of rising consumer numbers.
  • Long-run (2028-2032): The organic nature of the product and the toxicity of alternatives are anticipated to support market growth in the long term.

Fact.MR projects the sodium cocoyl glutamate market to expand at 5% CAGR through 2032 as compared to the CAGR of 3.8% from 2017 to 2021.

Which Market Factors are Driving Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate Consumption?

“Rising Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate Usage in Personal Care Products Industry”

Sodium cocoyl glutamate usage can strengthen the hair and promote hair growth through the reintegration of protein, and it also eliminates toxins in cleansing conditioners. Rising awareness about the use of organically-derived ingredients in care products is poised to provide lucrative opportunities to the global market, and offer a plethora of advantages to consumers, along with opportunities for key sodium cocoyl glutamate producers.

The use of sodium cocoyl glutamate permits less loss of color even after repeated shampooing in dyed hair, along with less stripping of natural oils from the hair. These are some of the advantages over other products such as sodium lauryl sulfate.

In addition, the rising concerns about the use of alkyl ether sulfates and alkyl sulfates will drive sodium cocoyl glutamate market growth by 2.1X during the forecast years, as sodium cocoyl glutamate is more environment-friendly as compared to other similar products.
