Global Steareth-2 Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

steareth-2 is a fatty alcohol used as an emulsifier. It is generally recognized as safe by the food and drug administration.

95% Purity:

95% Purity is a form of Steareth-2, which has 95% of the purity level as compared to its counterpart. It is used in various applications such as personal care and cosmetics, polyester fiber production, pharmaceuticals and food additives. The product helps to maintain the viscosity of oil paints and also acts as an anti-settling agent for emulsion paint systems.

99% Purity:

99% purity is a high-performance polyisoprene rubber, which has been characterized by independent testing laboratories as substantially free of all types of impurities and contains no added substances. It has also been approved by the FDA as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe).

Application Insights:

The personal care products segment held the largest revenue share of over 40% in 2017. The segment is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period owing to various advantages offered by Steareth-2, such as excellent skin and hair conditioning properties. These properties make it suitable for use in a variety of personal care products including shampoos, conditioners, sunscreens lotions and creams.

The product has excellent emulsion stabilizing capabilities which makes it ideal for use in oil-in-water (o/w) and water-in-oil (w/o) emulsions used in cosmetics like lipsticks and foundations respectively.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to rising product demand from various end-use industries, such as personal care and cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food processing and packaging. Increasing population coupled with rapid urbanization has resulted in an increased demand for packaged food products which will further drive steareth-2 market growth.

The presence of a large number of manufacturers coupled with cheap labor costs in countries such as China and India have attracted major pharmaceutical companies to set up their manufacturing units in these regions which will also boost regional product consumption levels over the next eight years. In addition, increasing consumer awareness regarding health & hygiene issues is anticipated to propel industry expansion over the coming years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the personal care industry for Steareth-2 as an emulsifier and surfactant.
  • Growing popularity of natural and organic cosmetics, which often require Steareth-2 for formulation.
  • Rising awareness of the benefits of Steareth-2 among consumers, who are looking for products that are gentle on their skin.
  • Innovation in product formulations by cosmetic manufacturers, who are increasingly using Steareth-2 in their products.
