Market Outlook

The global oleochemicals market is being aided by the growth of fatty alcohol and fatty acids markets. The fatty alcohols industry attained a production volume of 3.6 million metric tons in 2019. The industry for fatty alcohols is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% between 2020 and 2025 to reach a production volume of nearly 4.7 million metric tons by 2025. The Asia Pacific oleochemicals market is the leading region for oleochemicals, accounting for more than 40% of the global production. The regional oleochemicals market is anticipated to continue to be the most profitable regional market in the future, as well. It has a significant consumer base in countries such as Korea, China, India and Japan, and many other developing economies within the region.

With the increasing demand for sustainability factors, the preference for natural oleochemicals will boost the demand for oleochemicals derived from natural oils. The consumer end-market is moving progressively towards environment-friendly products. The leading and upstream oleochemical producers are now moving from synthetic to natural feedstocks such as palm kernel oil (PKO), coconut oil, and tallow to remain competitive. The rising environmental and regulatory pressures on surfactant manufacturers also drive the demand for oleochemicals that are produced naturally. Palm kernel oil, one of the feedstock, is the most traded commodity due to its availability and the premium quality of end products. The major exporters of palm kernel oil are Southeast Asia, followed by the US and the EU. The anticipated growth in palm yields will probably promote the growth of the fatty acids industry. At present, excess fatty acids are in the supply market, and operating rates are expected to decrease overcapacity.

The key producing countries of fatty acids include Asia, accounting for around 70% of the production. The European Union and North America follow Asia. Fatty alcohols are also majorly produced in Asia, accounting for nearly half of the global fatty alcohol production. Indonesia stands as one of the major exporting countries, whereas China, the United States, and Germany are among the major importers of fatty alcohols. China imports fatty alcohols primarily for soap production. Asia also has the leading palm kernel oil and coconut oil sourcing regions, like Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines, which produce and consume natural oleochemicals.

Properties and Applications

Oleochemicals are plant-and animal-derived chemicals. Various chemical and enzymatic reactions are involved in the development of basic oleochemical products such as fatty acids, fatty acid methyl esters, fatty alcohols, fatty amines, and glyceroles. These oleochemicals have special properties such as excellent emollience, surface activity, emulsifying characteristics, and other beneficial biological characteristics. The various types of oleochemicals are:

  • Fatty Acid
  • Fatty Alcohol 
  • Others

Oleochemicals have wide applications in the production of soap and detergent, intermediate plastic, coating and resin, paper, rubber, personal care, and lubricants and grease, among others.

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

Market Analysis

The global oleochemicals market is rapidly growing due to the increased demand for personal care products. The industry is significantly driven by the expanding food and beverage sector and the growing pharmaceuticals industry. The easy availability of raw materials, especially in regions like Malaysia, Indonesia, China, as well as Thailand, is likely to drive the industry growth further. The increasing biodiesel demand is also an essential factor in driving the oleochemicals market growth.

The global oleochemicals market is being driven by the growth of the end-use industries and the increasing purchasing power of consumers in the growing economies, like India and China. The rising environmental and regulatory pressures on surfactant manufacturers are increasing the natural and renewable raw materials usage and, hence, are supporting the growth of the oleochemicals market. The Asia Pacific is one of the most important demand markets due to growing industries in countries like India and China.

Palm kernel oil and coconut oil are the leading feedstock because they have a wide mix of all the fatty acids. The UK is currently dependent on the European Union for feedstock, which leads to an increase in imports, aiding the global oleochemicals market. The trade volume of the oleochemicals market has been rising ever since 2017 after witnessing an economic slowdown between 2011 and 2016. The trans-pacific partnership is expected to open better trade opportunities for Asia, thus, supporting the global oleochemicals market growth.

Competitive Landscape

The report gives a detailed analysis of the following key players in the global oleochemicals market, covering their competitive landscape, capacity, and latest developments like mergers, acquisitions, and investments, expansions of capacity, and plant turnarounds:

  • BASF SE
  • Wilmar International Ltd
  • Kuala Lumpur Kepong Berhad (“KLK”)
