Global Specialty Oleochemicals Market, By Type (Fatty Amines, Fatty Acid Methyl Esters, Specialty Es

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1958347


The Specialty Oleochemicals are the base of oleochemicals products. These are used in a variety of applications. The material and manufacturing technologies are of the utmost importance for the specialty oleochemicals market. These oleochemicals include feedstock which is plant-based such as palm oil, rapeseed oil, soybean oil, and sunflower oil. 
The market for specialty oleochemicals has been segmented into type and applications.

Segment Analysis

Based on the product type, it is divided as fatty amines, fatty acid methyl esters, specialty esters, alkoxylates, glycerol esters, and others. The specialty esters are more sustainable as compared to its substitutes hence they are widely used. they also help reduce the carbon footprint and help utilization of the bio-based products. Fatty acid methyl esters are mostly used as food additives in various foods such as ice creams and baked goods to stabilize and thicken the foods.

By the application, it is segmented as textiles, healthcare & pharmaceuticals, polymers & plastics additives, consumer goods, food processing, paints & ink, personal care & cosmetics, and others. The personal care and cosmetics segment is the largest growing segment as there has been a decrease in the use of harmful chemicals such as aluminum salts, parabens and phthalates and efforts have been undertaken by the MNCs for the adoption of sustainable products.

The APAC region is the largest market for these specialty oleochemicals, as raw materials are abundant for the manufacturing of the same.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:
    • The increasing demand for biosurfactants and lubricants
    • The support from the government for the utilization of sustainable products
