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

Format: Online | Last Updated: Apr 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] Global demand of oleochemicals is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 5.12% due to its environment friendly and biodegradable properties and has wide range of applications. Oleochemicals are chemical compounds obtained from plant and animal fat. Additionally, they are surface active molecules containing long alkyl chain of lipophilic and charged polar head of hydrophilic group. As a result, they have great air-lipid and water-lipid actions. Oleochemicals are basically classified as fatty acids, methyl esters, fatty alcohols, and fatty amines. Glycerol is by-product generally in all oleochemical extraction process. Basic raw materials for oleochemical extraction are coconut oil, palm kernel oil (PKO), palm oil, rape oil, sunflower oil, tallow etc. main technologies in oleochemical manufacturing are hydrolysis, transesterification, hydrogenation, fractionation etc.
Growing application of oleochemicals in cosmetics & personal care, soaps & detergents, textiles, pharmaceuticals, food & beverages, agriculture, plastics & polymers, and other industries coupled with benefits of biobased, eco-friendly properties is set to increase the demand during the forecast period.
Increasing environmental regulations and need to reduce the dependency on non-renewable resources as well as increasing investment on developing new technologies on oleochemicals by companies will certainly increase the demand of global oleochemicals market.
In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 in major global economies caused disruption in overall import and export of raw material for oleochemicals. This had an impact on demand of oleochemicals. Asia Pacific has emerged to be the largest consumer of oleochemicals with Indonesia and Malaysia being the major raw material supplier.

To extract data for global Oleochemicals market, primary research surveys were conducted with Oleochemicals manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, wholesalers and end users. While interviewing, the respondents were also inquired about their competitors. Through this technique, ChemAnalyst was able to include manufacturers that could not be identified due to the limitations of secondary research. Moreover, ChemAnalyst analyzed various end user segments and projected a positive outlook for Global Oleochemicals market over the coming years. 
ChemAnalyst calculated Oleochemicals demand globally by analyzing the historical data and demand forecast which was carried out considering imported Oleochemicals, styrene prices, monomers used for production of Oleochemicals. ChemAnalyst sourced these values from industry experts and company representatives and externally validated through analyzing historical sales data of respective manufacturers to arrive at the overall market size. Various secondary sources such as company websites, association reports, annual reports, etc., were also studied by ChemAnalyst. 
Key Target Audience:
•Oleochemicals manufacturers and other stakeholders
•Organizations, forums and alliances related to Oleochemicals distribution.
•Government bodies such as regulating authorities and policy makers.
•Market research organizations and consulting companies
The study is useful in providing answers to several critical questions that are important for industry stakeholders such as Oleochemicals manufacturers, customers, and policy makers. The study would also help them to target the growing segments over the coming years (next two to five years), thereby aiding the stakeholders in taking investment decisions and facilitating their expansion.
