Alkylphenol Ethoxylate Market Segment Analysis - By Type

Nonylphenol ethoxylate segment holds the largest share of more than 40% in the alkylphenol ethoxylate market in 2019. Nonylphenol ethoxylate are used as surfactants in cleaning chemical, and as dispersants or emulsifiers in pesticide formulations. Increase in food demand impel farmers to use pesticides for better agricultural output by the elimination of pests and weeds, substantially raising the demand of nonylphenol ethoxylate. According to United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) the demand for food will grow by 60% by 2050, thus aiding the growth of alkylphenol ethoxylate. 

Alkylphenol Ethoxylate Market Segment Analysis - By Application

Based on the application, industrial & institutional cleaning segment holds the largest share of more than 30% in the alkylphenol ethoxylate in 2019. Alkylphenol ethoxylates are used as surfactants in detergents because they have a polar ethoxylate chain and long non-polar side chain that can congregate with other alkylphenol ethoxylates molecules to form micelles. Surfactant removes dirt and prevent them from settling back onto cleaned surface. Increasing concerns about health and hygiene has boosted the use of detergents, dish washer and other cleaning agents further augmenting the demand of alkylphenol ethoxylate. 

Alkylphenol Ethoxylate Market Segment Analysis - By End Use

Based on the end use, textile segment is projected to grow with a substantial CAGR of 7% in the alkylphenol ethoxylate during the forecast period. Alkylphenol ethoxylate are used in textile processing due to its antistatic, emulsifying and lubricating properties. Surging demand for apparels has boosted the use of alkylphenol ethoxylate as a scouring, coating or waterproofing agents, in printing pastes and in dyeing. According to Trade Map, the total imported value of apparel and clothing accessories all around the globe increased by 8.6% and reached to $4.7 million in 2018. Thus, growing demand for colorful and printed apparels may boosts the growth of alkylphenol ethoxylate market.
COVID-19 has badly impacted the alkylphenol ethoxylate market due to disruptive supply chain and declining demand from consumers worldwide. Many industries are shuttered due to lack of manpower. Whereas, the Clothing Manufacturers Association of India (CMAI) has estimated that if no assistance comes from government either in terms of wage subsidy or revival packages there could be loss of almost 1 crore jobs in the entire textile chain. Moreover, decrease in purchasing capital has decreased the construction activities which in turn lowered the use of paint & dyes, subsequently impacting the growth of alkylphenol ethoxylate market.

Alkylphenol Ethoxylate Market Segment Analysis - By Geography

Asia Pacific has dominated the alkylphenol ethoxylate market with a share of 35% in 2019 followed by North America and Europe. Population growth coupled with rapid industrialization is driving the growth of alkylphenol ethoxylate in developing nations. Surging demand for apparel and expansion of textile industries across the country is also aiding the growth of market. According to Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), India’s textile and apparel exports accounted for US$ 38.70 billion in 2019 and is expected to increase to US$ 82.00 billion by 2021, further accelerating the use of nonylphenol ethoxylate for pre-scouring or bleaching process. Moreover, alkylphenol ethoxylate are also used as petroleum dispersants, antioxidants, and lubricating oil additives. According to the U.S Energy Information Administration, China’s crude oil imports increased to an average of 10.1 million barrels per day (b/d) in 2019, substantially raising the demand of alkylphenol ethoxylate.

Alkylphenol Ethoxylate Market Drivers

Changing lifestyle and growing fashion trend

Increasing disposable income and adoption of western culture in emerging economic nations like China and India has boosted the growth of fashion industry. Alkylphenol Ethoxylate are used as emulsifier and wetting agents in cosmetics, printing inks, and hair products like shampoo and hair dyes. Surging demand for cosmetics and colorful apparels is augmenting the growth of alkylphenol ethoxylate market.

Also, in May 2019, Tanzania banned the importation, production, sale, and use of plastic bags.

Alkylphenol Ethoxylate Market Challenges

Government regulations and harmful effect on aquatic life

Nonylphenol moderately bio accumulates and are extremely toxic to aquatic animals. Human exposure of nonylphenol and octylphenol may cause testicular damage, decreased testicular size, decreased sperm production and dysfunction of male reproduction system. In September 2014, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed a Significant New Use Rule to review before a manufacturer starts or resumes use of 15 nonylphenol (NPs) and nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs). The US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) in 2006 has launched the Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative (SDSI) for the removal of nonylphenol ethoxylates from detergent and cleaning products. Whereas, the EPA also recommended list of eight safer alternatives to nonylphenol ethoxylates that includes sorbitan monostearate, sodium lauryl sulfate and benzene sulfonic acid. Thus, government regulations on the use of alkylphenol ethoxylate hamper the growth of market. In 2016, the European Union has banned nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPE), widely used in clothing, citing its harmful effect on aquatic ecosystem.
