Global C6-C10 Fatty Alcohol Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

C6-C10 fatty alcohols are a class of chemicals that are used as surfactants, solvents, and lubricants. They are also used as ingredients in cosmetics and personal care products.

Short Chain:

Short chain fatty alcohols are also known as minor or lesser alcohols. They are a group of chemical compounds with one or more carbon chains, generally ranging from C4 to C30. The most commonly used form is cetyl (C16) alcohol, which is a clear liquid with a mild odor and taste. Other types include stearyl (C18) and oleyl (C10).

Long Chain:

Long-chain aliphatic alcohols are primarily used as solvents in the production of plastic resins and as additives in fuel. They are also used for blending into biodiesel to improve its lubricity. C6-C10 long chain fatty alcohol is a colorless liquid with an odor similar to that of gasoline.

Application Insights:

The global C6-C10 fatty alcohol market has been segmented on the basis of application into cosmetics and personal care, plasticizers, chemical intermediate, and others. The cosmetics and personal care segment dominated the overall industry in terms of revenue share at over 40% in 2017. This is attributed to increasing demand for products from this sector such as hair care & skin treatment products along with a growing population globally. Furthermore, favorable government regulations regarding product usage are expected to boost growth over the forecast period.

Plasticizers are anticipated to be one of the fastest-growing segments during the forecast period owing to rising demand for polyolefins from various end-use industries such as automotive & transportation and electrical & electronics sectors worldwide coupled with an increase in oil prices since 2014 has led major manufacturers including ExxonMobil Corporation; SABIC Innovative Plastics; Royal DSM N.V.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounts for a significant share of global consumption as a result of high demand from end-use industries such as cosmetics, personal care, plasticizers and chemical intermediates. China is one of the largest producers and consumers of these products globally owing to easy availability at low prices coupled with large scale production capacity.

The demand for fatty alcohols in Europe was valued at USD X million in 2017 on account rising environmental concerns regarding C6-C10 saturated fat content in animal fats along with growing consumer awareness regarding health & wellness trends prevalent across countries such as U.K., Germany, Spain among others are likely to have a positive impact on industry growth over the next eight years  (2018 - 2030).
