Global Oleochemical Fatty Acids Market: Snapshot 

The global market for oleochemical fatty acids is expected to witness robust growth over the period of forecast. Various factors such as a growing market for green chemicals, easy availability of raw materials, and high demand coming from consumer markets are stimulating growth of the global oleochemical fatty acids market. However, the growth of the market is likely to adversely affected by the fluctuating prices of raw materials.                          

Oils and fats are vital raw materials that are needed for the making of oleochemicals, including fatty alcohols and amines, methyl esters, free fatty acids, and glycerol as a by-product. Oleochemicals refers to those chemicals that are extracted from oils and fats and are extensively utilized in personal and home care products. Oleochemical fatty acid refers to one of the chemicals in the oleochemicals class that is extracted through the process of hydrolysis of fats or oils. 

The maximum usage for oleochemicals is for is for the making soaps and detergents. This usage comprises around 30% of market share for fatty acids and 55% for fatty alcohols. Lauric acid is used in the production of sodium lauryl sulfate and other related compounds, which are utilized to make soaps and various other personal care products. 

Oleochemicals are finds its applications across many different industries. Agricultural chemicals, inks paper chemicals, adhesives & sealants, food processing, household care, industrial & institutional cleaners, wax & candles, lubricants and greases are some of the industries from which high demand for oleochemical fatty acids is driving the oleochemical fatty acids market.
