This market research study identifies Clariant, Huntsman International, Reliance Industries, Chevron Phillips Chemical, and CEPSA as the leading players in the global linear alkyl benzene market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by application (niche applications and LAS) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the linear alkyl benzene industry report 

Technavio's linear alkyl benzene market analysis suggests, the harmful effects of chemically synthesized surfactants and their non-biodegradable nature are compelling governments of various countries to use eco-friendly surfactants. As a result, they are mandating the application of raw materials in the manufacturing process of eco-friendly surfactants. They have also imposed restrictions on the use of non-biodegradable surfactants such as dodecylbenzene sulfonates by implementing various regulatory policies. Technavio's linear alkyl benzene market research report identifies that the growing demand for bio-based surfactants will be one of the primary growth drivers for the global linear alkyl benzene (LAB) market till 2021. Bio-surfactants are amphiphilic compounds and have both hydrophobic and hydrophilic parts. They can reduce the surface tension between two liquid surfaces or a liquid and a solid surface. The LAB is used to derive linear alkyl benzene sulfonate (LAS), which is biodegradable in nature. As a result, it is extensively used as a replacement for dodecylbenzene sulfonate. Technavio's market research analysts predict that this market will grow at a CAGR of more than 5% by 2021.

According to our key linear alkyl benzene market trends, the LAB is used for other niche applications other than the manufacturing of LAS. For instance, it is used as a fluid in underground electricity transmission cables. As a result, the dependence on LAB will grow with the increased use of these cables as they are highly suitable for underwater cables as well. In addition, LAB has low toxicity, compatibility with acrylic, and high flash point, which makes them ideal for large-scale liquid scintillator detectors. Consequently, the increased use of LAB in such niche applications will propel the linear alkyl benzene market size in the forthcoming years.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the linear alkyl benzene market

  • Niche applications
  • Linear alkyl benzene sulfonate (LAS)

Manufacturers use LAB to produce LAS, which in turn, is used to make detergents and cleaning products such as laundry liquid, laundry powder, and dishwashing liquid. The detergents manufactured are used for household, industrial, and commercial cleaning purpose. LAS is used to make powder detergent, liquid detergent, light-duty laundry liquid, heavy-duty laundry liquid, and others. When LAB is sulfonated, it produces linear alkyl benzene sulfonic acid (LABSA). LABSA is used for various applications such as an emulsifier for agricultural herbicides and in emulsion polymerization.

Segmentation by geography and analysis of the linear alkyl benzene market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

The rapid industrialization and increase in disposable income are driving the market for linear alkyl benzene in APAC. Also, the rising awareness about hygiene and increasing population will further boost the application of LAB in the region throughout the predicted period. Furthermore, the rising population will also drive the number of hospitals and houses, which in turn, will propel the demand for cleaning products.
