Fact.MR has announced the addition of the “Alpha Olefin Sulfonate Market” : Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2018 to 2027" report to their offering.

Alpha Olefins sulfates (AOS) are anionic surfactant with the carbon chain between C14 to C16. Alpha Olefins sulfates are manufactured by the sulfonation of normal alpha olefins to produce alkene sulfonic acids and sultones that further passed through the neutralization process with the sodium hydroxide to produced finished product i.e. alpha olefins sulfates. Alpha Olefins sulfates have high detergency, foaming, wetting, and emulsifying properties owing to which it is prevalently consumed in the manufacturing of personal care products such as in detergents, soaps, and shampoos, among others. It is also used in the polymerization, construction chemicals, and oil field chemicals.

Market Dynamics:

Increasing demand for the detergent or surfactant in various end-use industries as well as in household’s application across the globe is expected to drive the Alpha Olefin Sulfonate market. Moreover, increasing per capita healthcare expenditure coupled with the growth in demand for the personal care and cosmetic products wherein the Alpha Olefin Sulfonate compounds are prevalently used in manufacturing, in turn, drive the market demand. Being the precursor compound for the polymer as well as agrochemicals manufacturing that subsequently resulted into increase in demand for Alpha Olefin Sulfonate. However, government regulations in the Europe and North America region and industrial initiative for the sustainability development owing to which the demand for the biodegradable compound is expected to increase over the forecast period. Thus, increase demand for the biodegradable chemicals may hamper the growth of alpha olefin sulfonate market in respective regions. Also, fluctuating raw material prices may effect on the profitability margin of the manufacturer. As Alpha Olefin Sulfonate find usage in a variety of applications, several manufacturer of Alpha Olefin Sulfonate are focusing on expansion of production facility in key region such as in China, India and ASEAN
