Alkoxylates Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: Nov 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] Alkoxylates demand stood at 2.69 million tonnes in 2020 and is forecasted to reach 4.21 million tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 4.25% until 2030. Alkoxylates are chemicals that are produced via the alkoxylation process. In the alkoxylation process compounds such as alcohols, phenols, and amines, etc. react with alkoxides to form alkoxylates. Alkoxylates are of various types depending upon the chemical undergoing the alkoxylation process. They are alcohol alkoxylates, fatty acid alkoxylates, fatty amines alkoxylates. Among the different types of alkoxylates, alcohol alkoxylates dominate the global market due to their degradable and environmentally friendly nature. They have applications in various areas including cleaning agents, emulsifying agents, detergents, stabilizers, dispersing agents, and wetting agents, etc. Increasing demand for detergents coupled with the growing demand from other application areas is expected to drive the demand for alkoxylates during the forecast period. Moreover, the biodegradable nature of alcohol alkoxylates is another factor influencing demand growth due to increasing awareness and government initiatives regarding environment-friendly materials. 
In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 in major global economies caused nationwide lockdowns which had an impact on several industries. Detergents and cleaners were among the most affected industries during the pandemic. This had an impact on the demand for alkoxylates for the first half of 2020. Therefore, the demand for alkoxylates grew during the coronavirus pandemic from the detergents and cleaners segment due to increased awareness about health and hygiene. 
Region-wise, the Asia-pacific region holds the major share of global demand for alkoxylates due to the increasing demand of application industries such as detergents and cleaners. Moreover, the increasing demand for environment-friendly biodegradable materials is also an influencing factor supporting demand rise in Asia-Pacific.
