Alcohol Sulfates Market Analysis and Application

Alcohol Sulfates Market Analysis and Application
Alcohol Sulfates Market Analysis and Application, Growth by 2023
Alcohol sulfates are negatively charged ions or anions. Being unstable in nature they react with
cations to form stable compounds. However, this property makes alcohol sulfates highly suitable
in various applications largely as surfactants. As surfactants, these may act as detergents, foaming
agents, emulsifiers, wetting agents and dispersants. When alcohol sulfates react with sodium they
form sodium lauryl sulphates and other compounds, making them suitable in industrial
applications such as floor cleaners, car wash soaps and engine degreasers. Alcohol sulfates also
find use in a wide range of personal care products such as soaps, shampoos and toothpastes. With
the wide range of industrial applications, the market for alcohol sulfates is expected to have a
positive trend in the future. The rise in demand from personal care segment across Europe and
other Asia Pacific countries is expected to boost the market for alcohol sulfates in the next few
years. Also the application as surfactant will further propel the demand for alcohol sulfates in the
future. The current market for surfactants is largely dominated by Europe and the U.S. However
the surge in demand from China and Africa will act as a catalyst for alcohol sulfates market in the
near future.

The commercial usage of alcohol sulfates began in 1940’s when they started replacing the ordinary
soap primarily for washing machine applications. The negative electrical charge of alcohol
sulfates’ ionic nature makes them bind to dissolved minerals in hard water. The lauryl group
provides the highest foam, making it ideal for cleansing applications. Also the alcohol sulfates can
be readily thickened when combined with alkanolamides and amine oxides which can be used
largely in laundry application. The personal care products and other hygiene related applications
are expected to be the major drivers for alcohol sulfates in the next few years. The other
applications of alcohol sulfates include shampoos, body wash, liquid hand soap, bath products,
and facial cleansers.

The developing nations across Asia Pacific are anticipated to be the fastest growing markets for
alcohol sulfates in the next six years. The middle class population in these countries is growing at
a stupendous rate which is eventually resulting in an increase in the overall customer base.
Moreover, due to the rapid economic development of these countries and increased disposable
income of the citizens of these countries has led to further magnification of the total customer base
in these countries for applications in detergents and soaps. Moreover, the countries in the regions
such as Africa, South America and the Middle East are showing swift economic growth since the
last few years. In addition to this, the developed regions across the U.S. and European countries
are progressively recovering from the sluggish economic conditions.Considering this outlook, the
industrial applications such as floor cleaners, car wash soaps, and engine degreasers are expected
to record a magnificent growth in the next few years.
