This report provides prognosis and analysis of the Alpha Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) Market. It offers historical data along with forecast data for 2027.
[EUPRwire, Mon Mar 04 2019] Rising Consumption of Surfactants in Asia Pacific Creates Lucrative Opportunities for Alpha Olefin Sulfonate Manufacturers: Emerging economies in the Asia-Pacific region represent high-potential markets for personal care products and cosmetics. As beauty and personal care products are among the biggest applications of alpha olefin sulfonates, the burgeoning growth of the personal care industry in the region is likely to create significant sales opportunities for alpha olefin sulfonates market players.

Additionally, increasing economic growth of the developing Asian countries, such as China and India, is generating high demand for industrial surfactants such as alpha olefin sulfonates. To capitalize on the ever-growing consumption of alpha olefin sulfonates as a surfactant in wide-ranging industrial applications, leading alpha olefin sulfonates market players are investing heavily in local markets in the Asia-Pacific region.
Stringent Safety Regulations Create Challenges for Alpha Olefin Sulfonates Market Players
While manufacturers in the alpha olefin sulfonates market are concentrating their efforts on minimizing the cost of production, stringent standards and environmental regulations imposed are influencing competitive pricing.
The European Union has adopted REACH regulations, which stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals, to mitigate negative impacts of chemical products on the human health and the environment. All the chemical manufacturers, importers, distributors, downstream users, as well as alpha olefin sulfonates market players have to comply with REACH regulations to carry out operations in the European Economic Area (EEA).
In addition, the United States Environment Protection Agency (EPA) has imposed labeling regulations for chemical products manufactured or marketed in the U.S., under its Safer Choice Program. Though participating in this program is not mandatory for alpha olefin sulfonates manufacturers, consumers in the U.S. prefer to purchase products that meet these standards.
Biodegradability of Alpha Olefin Sulfonates: Key to Future Adoption
A majority of personal care product manufacturing companies are aiming to mitigate the environmental impacts of their manufacturing processes as consumers are becoming highly conscious about the carbon footprint of the products they use. While alpha olefin sulfonates exhibit a combination of good emulsification properties and foaming properties, these are also readily biodegradable, which boosts their applications in manufacturing eco-friendly surfactants, thereby, complementing growth of the alpha olefin sulfonates market.

Consumers are becoming conscious about ingredients in personal care products by the virtue of rising awareness about the negative effects of chemicals on the skin. A majority of government organizations, including the Government of Canada, have declared that alpha olefin sulfonates are free from carcinogens, which further provides a fillip to the alpha olefin sulfonates market growth.
Apart from the performance characteristics of alpha olefin sulfonates, such as foaming properties and mildness to the skin, its biodegradability boosts its use as an alternative to linear alkylbenzene sulfonates in a variety of personal care products. The rise in its adoption as an environment-friendly alternative to harmful ingredients is expected to complement growth of the alpha olefin sulfonates market.
Price and Supply Fluctuations of Alpha Olefin Sulfonates: A Key Challenge
Despite the growing preference for alpha olefin sulfonates in a wide range of industrial applications, its volatile prices are creating a hindrance in its adoption in some applications. Alpha olefin sulfonates are ethylene based surfactants, which are derived from petrochemical compounds. On account of this, they are prone to constant fluctuations in supply, affecting its price structure.
Due to turbulent raw material prices and supply uncertainties, alpha olefin sulfonates are likely to get replaced in certain applications by bio-based anionic surfactants such as methyl ester sulfonates (MES) and alcohol ether sulfate (AES), which are derived from palm oil and coconut oil, respectively. This may impact future prospects of the alpha olefin sulfonates market.
