Market Overview


The global detergent alcohol market is expected to register a CAGR of over 6.5% to reach around USD 11 billion by the end of 2025.


Detergent alcohols can be categorized as natural and synthetic alcohols. Natural detergent alcohols (fatty alcohols) are obtained by converting fatty acids to non-acidic intermediate methyl esters and then hydrogenates these to alcohols. Artificial detergent alcohols are derived from petrochemical sources.


Detergent alcohols find use in numerous applications such as domestic & industrial cleaning, personal care, pharmaceutical, wastewater treatment chemicals, plasticizer, and others. Among the applications above, domestic & industrial cleaning is the significant revenue-generating an application for the detergent alcohols market due to their increasing use as non-ionic surfactants in detergents.


Increasing environmental regulations against the use of chemicals in detergents have been imposed by governments across the globe, owing to which detergent manufacturers are increasingly using natural oils over chemicals, which is likely to fuel the demand for natural detergent alcohols.


The global demand for detergent alcohols is mainly driven by increasing adoption of fatty alcohols in household detergents such as laundry powder and liquid detergents, hard surface cleaners, and dishwashing liquids. The growing preference for surfactants based on natural oils, coupled with rising awareness regarding the maintenance of hygiene, is projected to drive market growth during the forecast period.


Natural detergent alcohols are being widely used in the cosmetics and personal care industry as emollients and thickening and cleansing agents as they help improve the viscosity of lotions and creams. The growing cosmetics and personal care industry in Asia-Pacific, with a surge in demand for premium skin and hair care products, child beauty care products, and color cosmetics, rising per capita disposable incomes, and changing lifestyles are expected to boost the growth of the global detergent alcohol market.


Growing preference for liquid table detergents and concentrated liquid detergents over powder detergents in China as the former offer strong cleaning capability and promote healthy skin is likely to create lucrative opportunities for the players operating in the global detergent alcohols market. However, fluctuations in prices of raw materials are likely to affect market growth.
