Global Alpha Olefin Sulfonate (AOS) Market: Snapshot

Alpha olefin sulfonate (AOS) has numerous USPs. It is an excellent agent for decontamination and emulsification. It is highly soluble and has wide ranging compatibility. Besides, it can create a fine, rich foam. Other benefits of alpha olefin sulfonate are their biodegradable nature and low toxicity.

All these have led to the swift uptake of alpha olefin sulfonate (AOS) for formulating a range of cleansing products meant for personal care, laundry, hard surfaces, and industrial applications. They are being particularly used for making non-phosphorus detergents both in the liquid and powdered form. Alpha olefin sulfonate (AOS) also find usage in plastics and polymers, textiles, and agrochemicals.

Sodium C14-16 olefin sulfonate is the commonly used alpha olefin sulfonate (AOS) in personal care products. It can act as a wetting agent, detergent, and emulsifier based on the application. When produced properly, it can provide viscosity, which is a foaming profile acceptable to users of cosmetics.

Thanks to a burgeoning personal care products and cleaning products market owing to the rising disposable incomes of people, the global alpha olefin sulfonate (AOS) market is rising impressively. Currently, Europe and North America contribute significantly because of the solid demand for surfactant, emulsifier, and chemical synthesis, among applications in the two regions.


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.
