LAB (Linear Alkyl Benzene) is a colorless organic compound produced as an intermediate chemical during the production of certain surfactants. This report provides in-depth analysis of the LAB market and also estimates the global demand for LAB in terms of volume (kilo tons) and revenue (USD million) from 2010 to 2018.
Based on application, the LAB market can be broadly segmented into Linear Alkylbenzene Sulfonate (LAS) and other applications. A major portion of the global LAB production is employed for the production of LAS (Linear Alkylbenzene Sulfonate). LAS applications have been further segmented on the basis of the end user applications, namely heavy-duty laundry liquids, light-duty dishwashing liquids, and laundry powders, industrial and household cleaners. Heavy-duty laundry liquids mainly employed for commercial laundry purposes and are the most dominant application segment for LAS. The demand for household cleaners is expected to exhibit the fastest growth rate amongst all the application segments. Other niche applications of LAB include ink solvents, agricultural herbicides, wetting agents, emulsion polymerization, electric cable oil, and the paint industry.
Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, and Rest of the World (ROW) are the geographical regions analyzed in this report. The forecasts and estimates of each application segment of LAB in these geographical regions have been provided for the period 2012 to 2018.
