Ethoxylates Market Foreseen to Grow Exponentially Over 2027

The Global Ethoxylates Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 14.1 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of around 2.8%.

Ethoxylates are organic compounds that are manufactured by treatment of alcohols and phenols with ethylene oxide in the presence of catalyst namely potassium hydroxide. They are usually obtained by the addition of ethylene oxide (EO) to compounds comprising dissociated protons. Ethoxylates are more prominently used in a variety of industries due to their emulsifying properties. Ethoxylates are used as intermediates during the manufacture of detergents, surface cleaners, cosmetics, and paints. Textile processing, paints & coatings, agriculture, pulp & paper, and personal care industries are the major end-users of ethoxylates. Ethoxylates are used widely in industrial applications due to high water solubility, good formulation, low aquatic toxicity, and excellent wetting ability.

Ethoxylates Market: Drivers & Challenges

Market Driver:

  • Increased Demand for Low-Rinse Detergents

The low-rinse detergent demand is increasing significantly in various end-use industries, owing to low-foaming detergents is a strong cleaner than the high-foaming detergents, and its level of foam produced does not correlate with the cleaning power of detergents. They do not ionize in solution and thus have no electrical charge; they are resistant to hardness is a major reason behind the popularity of low-rinse detergents. Companies are focusing on developing low-rinse products such as methyl ester ethoxylates, as these products produce low foam which also helps in reducing water usage. These low-foaming detergents are preferred for washing machines, automatic dishwashing machines, and rinse aids. Ethoxylates are mainly non-ionic surfactants, so with the increasing demand of non-rinse detergents, the demand of ethoxylates is also increasing. Thus, the increasing demand for low-rinse detergent is expected to boost the global ethoxylates market.

Market Restraint:

  • Low Potential of Ethoxylates In Developed Countries

There are many personal care and household products, which are manufactured by using alternatives to ethoxylates. At present, ethoxylates are growing at a moderate growth rate across the globe. With the increasing usage of substitute products in household & personal care products, the demand for ethoxylates will also decrease. Some of the ethoxylates, for instance, Nonylphenol are toxic in nature, due to which they are banned in many countries. The major substitutes of ethoxylates are sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, and ammonium laurel sulfate. The market share of these substitute products is increasing, which is a barrier to the growth of ethoxylates in developed nations. Hence, the ethoxylates market has less potential in developed countries although they have high penetration in household & personal care products. Thus, the low potential of ethoxylates in developed countries is to act as a major restraint towards the growth of the market.
