They are green surfactants and are used in eco-friendly washing detergents as they are produced from renewable plant resources. The global methyl ester sulfonate market is being driven by the growing demand for the product, which reached a volume of 0.7 million metric tons in 2020. The methyl ester sulfonate market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 14% between 2021 and 2026 to reach a volume of almost 1.5 million metric tons by 2026.

Due to MES having surfactant properties, a solid structure, and being biodegradable, the manufacturers are increasingly preferring the material as it helps in decreasing their carbon footprint. Smart and eco-conscious consumers are also seeking MES in detergents as it ensures environmental sustainability and efficiency. Powder detergents account for a significant share of the global MES market. The increasing demand from developing economies, like India and China, for powder detergents, is propelling the market for methyl ester sulfonate forward.

The Asia Pacific is the leading market for methyl ester sulfonate, occupying nearly 80% of the supply market share. The industry in the Asia Pacific region is being driven by the high growth rate of powder detergents in the emerging economies of the region like India and China. The regional industry is also finding further impetus for its growth in the easy availability of feedstock, which makes the manufacturing process more cost-efficient. The domestic demand is expected to rise due to a significant increase in the use of MES as an alternative to LAS. North America follows the Asia Pacific region. While the region currently accounts for nearly a fifth of the global MES capacity, North America is expected to witness a slower growth in the coming years due to a shift away from powder detergents.

 

Market Segmentation

Methyl ester sulfonates (MES) are anionic surfactants made from the sulfonation of saturated fatty acid methyl esters. It is derived from palm oil and acts as a surfactant having cleansing properties. It is used in the processing of laundry detergent powders and detergent cakes. MES is used as a biodegradable alternative to the petrochemical-derived LAS. Methyl esters are raw materials that are used in a wide variety of markets ranging from agrochemicals to industrial markets. It is cost-effective and compatible with the application of builders and enzymes. It also has excellent synergistic effect when combined with other surfactants. Methyl ester sulfonates are divided based on the following applications:

Market Analysis

The rising demand for powder detergents and dishwashing is driving the market for methyl ester sulfonate, especially within the emerging economies. It is a biodegradable substitute for petrochemical-derived LAS and is finding great impetus for its demand growth as a potential replacement for LAS in powder detergents, further driving the market. The growing awareness regarding environmentally friendly raw materials is aiding the industry growth as MES is a biodegradable material. Manufacturers are, thus, increasingly preferring MES due to its eco-friendly nature.

The increasing demand from other application sectors like dishwashing paste and agricultural industries in developing regions, such as the Asia Pacific, is aiding the growth of the methyl ester sulfonates industry. The increased consumption of powder detergents in India and China has supported the growth of the detergent industry in the Asia Pacific, which is further driving the MES industry in the region. The increasing disposable incomes, along with a rising hygiene awareness in growing economies like China and India in the Asia Pacific, is also a major driver for the industry.

In the Asia Pacific region, there has been an increase in demand for MES due to a mounting demand for powder detergents, coupled with rising LAS prices. LAS prices are affected by fluctuating crude oil prices, which are expected to rise in the coming years. MES is cheaper and eco-friendlier as compared to LAS and offers the potential to replace it. Thus, the increasing prices of LAS will influence the adoption of MES by the manufacturers.
