Ethoxylates Market size to exceed $19 Bn by 2032

  • Published Date: November 15, 2022

Ethoxylates Market size is projected to surpass USD 19 billion by 2032, according to the latest report published by Global Market Insights Inc.

Growing demand for high-quality cleansing products, emulsifiers, and rust inhibitors from the oil & gas sector has fostered the utilization of ethoxylates. These chemicals are also used extensively in upstream oil & gas processes such as crude oil extraction and demulsification. Surging demand for crude oil along with the increasing number of oil & gas projects worldwide will thus promote the usage of ethoxylates for drill ships and oil rigs.

Toxicity concerns associated with some ethoxylates and their subsequent impact on environmental health are encouraging manufacturers to focus on the development of more sustainable products, using substitutes such as alcohol ethoxylates. These substances belong to a class of non-ionic biosurfactants that can be produced and consumed across the globe. Furthermore, the increasingly stringent regulations being imposed on the use of toxic components in various countries will promote the development of eco-friendly alternatives such as alcohol ethoxylates.

Robust applicability in industrial processes will boost demand for fatty amine ethoxylates

Ethoxylates market share from the fatty amine product segment is anticipated to register more than 3.5% CAGR between 2023 to 2032. Fatty amine ethoxylates are non-ionic surfactants that are used as dispersing and wetting agents, sanitizers, stabilizers, and defoaming agents across industries such as paper, textile, drilling, paint, chemical, etc. These compounds play a crucial role as emulsifiers in agrochemical industries, petroleum additives, and leather and textile processing applications. The strong potential of ethoxylates across diverse industrial verticals will therefore fuel product consumption.
