Global Oleochemicals Market (2020 to 2025) - Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast -

The "Oleochemicals Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025" report has been added to's offering.

The global oleochemicals market is currently witnessing healthy growth. Oleochemicals are organic compounds derived from the hydrolysis of natural vegetable oil, such as soybean, sunflower, corn; and animal fats, such as rendered fats, tallow, lard and fish. Currently, fatty acids, glycerine, methyl esters and fatty alcohols are the most common types of oleochemicals available in the market.

They exhibit low toxicity, are biodegradable, environment-friendly and are rapidly replacing traditionally used petrochemicals. In addition to this, oleochemicals find extensive application in the production of biodiesel, bioplastics, green solvents, while acting as an intermediary in the pharmaceutical, rubber, paint and lubricant industries.

The increasing demand for biodiesel, along with the rapid growth of the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector, represent as the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the growing adoption of oleochemicals by chemical manufacturers for the production of bio-surfactants, bio-lubricants and biopolymers, as sustainable alternatives to petrochemicals, is also acting as a major growth-inducing factor. Additionally, there is an increasing consumer preference for natural ingredients in cosmetics, baby care products, soaps and food additives.

For instance, oil-based oleochemicals are combined with caustic soda, sodium, fragrances and preservatives to manufacture organic soaps. Rapid industrialization across the globe is another factor contributing to the growth of the market. Oleochemicals are utilized as softening, polishing and vulcanizing agents for rubber products, and in the production of industrial lubricants, hydraulic fluids and base oils. Other factors, including enhanced research and development (R&D) to utilize metabolic engineering strategies for the production of oleochemicals using renewable and sustainable feedstocks, are projected to drive the market further. The publisher expects the market to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% during 2020-2025.
