Rising uses of chemicals in high-end liquid detergents will propel product penetration

Liquid detergent products are popular in developed economies owing to easy usage and higher performance compared to powder detergents. Sodium cumenesulfonate is one of the key ingredients used in several liquid detergent products such as Tide and Dreft liquid detergent, among others. In 2016, the U.S. laundry detergent market was valued at around USD 7.2 billion and Procter & Gamble Company accounted for around 60% of the sodium cumenesulfonate market share. Tide Plus Ultra Stain Release is one of the high-end brands of Procter & Gamble, which is a popular liquid detergent in the U.S.

Sodium cumenesulfonate, also known as benzenesulfonic acid, (1-methylethyl)-, sodium salt, and sodium 2-isopropylbenzenesulfonate, is used in several applications owing to its viscosity-reducing properties. Furthermore, the chemical is used as a coupling agent, solubilizer, and anti-caking agents in powder detergents. Additionally, it promotes compatibility among several chemicals present in multi-component systems. The use of chemicals in a wide range of shampoos and dishwashing agents is expected to drive the sodium cumenesulfonate market.

During the forecast period, the sodium cumenesulfonate market growth will largely depend on the growing detergent and oil & gas industries. The oil & gas industry will witness a strong growth during the forecast period owing to increasing oil & gas exploration activities in North America and Europe. The metal working industry will also witness strong demand growth due to rising end-user industries, such as automobiles and construction, in Asia Pacific.

Fluctuating crude oil prices are affecting profit margins

The major material used in the production of sodium 2-isopropylbenzenesulfonate includes cumene, sodium hydroxide, and sulfuric acid, among others. The prices of these raw materials will hugely fluctuate in the global market scenarios; hence, directly affecting the cost of production. Cumene is one of the major raw materials used in the production of sodium cumenesulfonate and is produced from propene and benzene (crude oil derivatives). Any fluctuation in the global crude oil prices will hugely impact the overall production cost of sodium cumenesulfonate.

Liquid forms are popular owing to a wide range of applications in personal care and household laundry products

Cloud point depressor is an important property required during the usage of petroleum-based mineral oils at lower temperatures. Sodium 2-isopropylbenzenesulfonate enables detergent manufacturers and other industry users to lower down the cloud point of aqueous formulated products. The cloud point depressor application generated around USD 14.8 million revenue in 2019.

The growing liquid detergent industry in developed economies along with rising concerns for hygiene is driving product demand for cloud point depressor application. Furthermore, the proliferating chemical industry in Asia Pacific is expected to support the sodium cumenesulfonate market segment growth over the forecast timeframe.

The sodium cumenesulfonate market from metal working industry is expected to generate around USD 10.8 million revenue by 2026. Metal worked parts and fabricated products are used in various sectors such as automotive, oil & gas, consumer products, agriculture, aerospace & defense, marine, and medical industries. Growth in the automotive and aerospace sectors will drive the metal processing industry, which, in turn, will propel product demand in the metal working industry.

The growing oil & gas and detergent industry will drive product sales in North America

Sodium Cumenesulfonate Market by Region

North America is expected to witness considerable growth over the forecast timeframe and is expected to hold around 44% volumetric shares by 2026. The proliferating detergent and oil & gas industries in the region are expected to drive the sodium cumenesulfonate market demand over the study timeframe. The presence of major end-user industries in the region is further expected to drive industry growth in the coming years. The presence of major detergent manufacturers and high per capita expenditure on personal care products in the region will also support market growth.

Mergers & acquisitions and production facility expansion form the basis for acquiring higher market share by key participants

Mergers & acquisitions along with production facility expansion are key strategies applied by manufacturers to enhance their sodium cumenesulfonate industry share. For instance, in February 2016, Nease Performance Chemicals expanded its manufacturing site in Ohio, U.S., to meet the needs of its growing specialty chemical business. The expansion enabled the company to enhance its market position and offer customized concentration of chemicals for customers in the U.S. Key sodium cumenesulfonate manufacturers operating in the sodium cumenesulfonate industry include Stepan Company, Nease Corporation, Enaspol A.S., Sasol, and Innospec, among others.
