The naturally derived fatty acid forms one of the highest growing market segments in the global fatty alcohol market. The demand for soaps made from naturally derived ingredients and bio-based personal care products are more in demand by the consumers. The chemical industry has gradually shifted its preference towards the use of bio-based chemicals as the prices of products derived from petrochemicals are volatile in nature. The uncertainty involved with the availability and price of the petrochemicals that may disturb the supply-demand balance has led to a higher demand for bio-based chemicals. In addition to this, there are various environmental concerns regarding the usage of petrochemicals which have majorly affected the usage of bio-based chemicals as they are more sustainable. The bio-based materials decrease the carbon footprint and are environment-friendly. Various companies are shifting their focus towards usage of bio-based raw materials and develop products that are biodegradable. There is an increase in demand for personal hygiene products as the consumer awareness towards the products is increasing at a higher growth rate. The market for personal care product is likely to have a growth rate of around 5.0% during forecast timeframe and is expected to have a market value of around USD 500 billion by the end of 2020. However, surplus production of fatty alcohol leading to oversupply may act as a restraining factor for the market growth of fatty alcohol. Considering all these factors, it is the feedstock flexibility and growing consumption of fatty alcohol in emerging clusters within the Asia Pacific that will provide new opportunities for the overall market growth.
