Alkylbenzene sulfonate, a group of branched-chain organic chemical compounds that were once utilized as detergents are classified as "hard" detergents, because of their resistance to biological degradation. A hydrophilic sulfonate head group and a hydrophobic alkylbenzene tail group make up this class of anionic surfactants. They are among the oldest and most extensively used synthetic detergents, and can be found in a variety of personal-care items such as soaps, shampoos, and toothpaste, as well as household products including laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid, and spray cleaner. The global alkylbenzenes sulfonate market is predicted to grow in the next years as consumer awareness of cleanliness grows as a result of rising health concerns, an ageing population, and lifestyle disorders. Alkylbenzene sulfonate resulting goods are neither dangerous to humans or the environment.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • Global pandemic has severely affected the surfactant industry, resulting in decreased demand and productivity, operational and supply chain problems, and regional lockdowns.
  • China is one of the most affected countries as it is one of the world's top producers and consumers of surfactants. As a result of China's complete shutdown, surfactant demand declined in the first quarter of 2020.

Top Impacting Factors

The market's growth is being fueled by rise in demand for detergents and cleansers, as well as increased awareness of hygiene and personal health. Alkylbenzene sulfonate is widely used in detergents and cleansers due to its desirable properties such as excellent foam production, cleaning, and emulsifying.

People have been gradually increasing their use of detergents and cleaners to maintain health and cleanliness. The progressive expansion of the worldwide food and beverage industry is expected to surge the demand for dishwashing liquids, resulting in market expansion. Ink, agricultural herbicides, paint industries, wetting agents, electric cable oil, and other products include minor amounts of alkylbenzene. In addition, the availability of alternative synthetic chemicals and a pricing advantage over alkylbenzene sulfonate-based products is expected to limit the market's growth.

Market Trends

  • CEPSA, a Spanish petrochemicals company, has updated its chemical plant in Puente Mayorga (Cadiz), making it the world's first linear alkylbenzene (LAB) factory.
  • Farabi Petrochemicals Company of Saudi Arabia deployed Honeywell UOP technologies for a new complex in Yanbu to enhance its manufacture of biodegradable detergents, according to Honeywell. It has a Unionfining hydrotreating unit and a Molex machine for producing the linear alkylbenzene (LAB) feedstock required for biodegradable detergent production.
  • Kao USA Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Kao Corporation, a leading manufacturer and marketer of top beauty brands known around the world for innovation and quality, acquired Oribe Hair Care, LLC from its current owners, which include Luxury Brand Partners, LLC, a beauty innovator known for its artist-driven brands and entrepreneurial culture.
