In this report, Technavio highlights the increasing demand for bio-based anionic surfactants as one of the key emerging trends in the global secondary alkane sulfonates market:
Increasing demand for bio-based anionic surfactants
The growing concern for the toxic effects of synthetic surfactants and rising crude oil prices are the major factors that drive the demand for bio-based surfactants from various end-user applications. In addition, there are certain environmental regulations, which are restricting the use of synthetic surfactants as intermediate compounds to manufacture detergents, cleaners, personal care products, and other end-use products. Moreover, the fluctuation in the prices of crude oil has a direct impact on the supply of and demand for raw materials that are used to produce secondary alkane sulfonates.
“The primary raw material used to produce secondary alkane sulfonates is n-paraffin, which is a mixture of hydrocarbons. The fluctuation in the price of crude oil price impacts the cost of paraffin, thereby increasing the cost of secondary alkane sulfonates. Bio-based anionic surfactants such as fatty methyl ester sulfonates and sodium lauryl sulfonates are gaining popularity in various end-user applications because they are derived from renewable resources such as palm oil and palm kernel oil,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals.
