Market Outlook

The global linear alkylbenzene and linear alkylate sulfonate market is being driven by the rising demand from the emerging economies. The global linear alkylbenzene (LAB) market demand reached a volume of nearly 4 million metric tons in the year 2019. The industry is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 3% between 2020 and 2025 to attain a volume of almost 4.8 million metric tons by 2025. The global linear alkylate sulfonate (LAS) market, on the other hand, reached a volume of almost 5.8 million metric tons in 2019. The industry for LAS is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 3% in the forecast period of 2020-2025 to reach a volume of almost 6.9 million metric tons by 2025.

Linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS) accounted for 97% of the linear alkylbenzene (LAB) industry share in 2016, which is further segmented by its end-use industries like laundry detergents, dishwashing, industrial cleaning, and household cleaning. The LAS demand, and in turn LAB demand, is being aided by the growing household and industrial cleaners industries in the Asia Pacific.

The Asia Pacific is the most significant demand market for LAB. The global linear alkylbenzene and linear alkylate sulfonate market is driven by the rise in the detergents demand, owing to the increasing disposable income and the infrastructural growth in the emerging economies such as China and India The rising demand for powder detergents in these regions are especially expected to drive the industry growth.  The industry is expected to witness a slower growth in North America and Europe due to a rising preference for liquid detergents, which consumes lower amount of LAB. North America is, thus, a net exporter of LAB due to reduced domestic demand, while the Asia Pacific is a net importer of the substance as no capacity addition has been announced within the region.

Properties and Applications

Linear alkylbenzene is an organic compound, which is extensively used in the production of surfactants for detergents. It is most widely used in the production of linear alkylate sulfonate (LAS), which is used as a biodegradable surfactant. LAB is sulfonated to produce LAS. LAS finds extensive application in the following segments:

  • Laundry Detergents
  • Dishwashing Detergents
  • Industrial Cleaners
  • Household Cleaners
  • Others

The report also covers the regional markets of the product like North America, the Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

Market Analysis

The increasing population, along with the rising disposable incomes in emerging economies such as the Asia Pacific, and Latin America due to the rapid industrialization, is expected to increase the demand for LAS and LAB in the coming years. The rise in the demand for detergents, particularly in emerging nations like China, India, Latin America, and others, is predicted to drive the market for LAB and LAS. The demand from the home care sector has risen in the Asia Pacific, further enhancing the industry growth. As a consequence of the improved economic activity in the emerging regions, demand for home and industrial cleaners are expected to improve, further enhancing the demand for LAB. LAS is a key derivative of LAB and the most frequently used surfactant in the production of these cleaners. The increasing demand for these cleaners is the major driver for industry growth.

The improved standard of living in emerging regions such as Africa, the Asia Pacific, and Latin America is expected to invigorate the market for detergents, and in turn, the LAB and LAS industry, which is employed in the former market. The low penetration of detergents in the above regions is expected to propel the industry growth for LAB and LAS further.

There is a shift in consumer behaviour, who are increasingly opting for liquid detergents over powder detergents in countries such as North America, China, and Western Europe. Minimal quantity of HLAS is used in the production of liquid detergents, compared to powder, thus, the demand for HLAS, and as a result, LAB is expected to be influenced negatively in the laundry sector in the coming years. However, the demand for powder detergents is expected to be driven by regions such as Latin America, India, and Africa, which will support the forecast growth of the LAB and LAS market. The oleochemical, methyl ester sulfonate (MES), LAB's essential alternative is not going to have any major impact on the LAB market in the forecast period, due to the low feedstock crude prices favouring the LAB market economics.

Competitive Landscape
