The Global Alkyl Polyglucoside Market size is projected to grow from USD 1.5 billion in 2020 to USD X.X billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 4% during the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to factors such as an increase in demand for detergents and cosmetics products globally, the growing disposable income level of consumers, and increasing awareness about sustainable living practices. These factors are expected to drive the demand for APG over the next decade.
Alkyl Polyglucosides are surface-active agents composed of glucose derivatives with short alkyl chains attached. They are excellent emulsifiers, solubilizers, and antistatic properties. Alkyl polyglucosides are natural, biodegradable nonionic surfactants produced from renewable resources. They have a low toxicity profile and high stability in hard water conditions. Alkyl Polyglycoside also has good wetting properties and is mild to skin and hair, making it suitable for personal care applications such as shampoos and shower gels. It can be used in various other detergent formulations like laundry wash, floor cleaners or dishwashing liquids, etc with different pH levels — acidic (pH less than five) or alkaline (pH greater than eight).
On the basis of Type, the global alkyl polyglucoside market is segmented into C12APG, C14APG, and Others.
C12APG is a kind of alkyl polyglucoside. It has carbon number 12 in the molecule. It is widely used in detergents, cosmetics, and liquid soap. It has excellent cleansing, foaming, and wetting properties with superior compatibility with other surfactants. short-chain length of C12APG allows easy penetration into the surface, better cleaning performance, and faster drying. C12APG is produced by the process of hydrolysis and alkoxylation of Glucoside. The basic raw materials for producing glucoside are sugar or starch, which can be derived from corn, cassava, etc.
C14APG is a term for the type of alkyl polyglycoside. It can be formed by condensation reactions between fatty alcohols and unmodified glucose in an alkaline medium, which forms ethylene oxide chains that reduce water’s surface tension. The addition of APG to household cleaning products makes them more efficient and cost-effective than traditional cleaners such as soaps and detergents. It has 14 glucose units. It can be used as a wetting agent, emulsifier, and dispersant in industrial cleaning agents along with pesticide synergist agents.
On the basis of Application, the global alkyl polyglucoside market is segmented into Domestic Detergent, Cosmetics, Industrial Cleaning Agents, Plastics, Pesticide Synergist Sgent, Others.
Alkyl Polyglucoside (APG) is used in the Domestic Detergent industry for emulsification, thickening, and water stabilization. APG can be further classified into C12-16 Alkyl polyglycosides which are preferred over the other types of alkyl glycosides due to their hydrophobic nature that helps in suspending dirt particles thereby offering better cleaning abilities without diminishing the soil removal capacity. It helps to reduce the surface tension of water at low concentrations and so improves its wetting properties, allowing it to penetrate fabrics better.
Alkyl Polyglucosides is used as a hair conditioning agent in shampoos and conditioners. It is an alternative to silicones and can be used as a conditioning agent in hair care products. This acts as a good replacement for other cationic surfactants such as Polyquaternium-14, Quaternium 80 & Steartrimonium Chloride. Alkyl Polyglucoside acts as an emulsion stabilizer in creams. It also helps to improve the viscosity of the cream and prevents the separation of oil & water phases on standing for a long time.
Alkyl polyglucosides are used as a cleaning agent in several industries, typically those that produce water-soluble detergents. They have been found to be effective for a variety of industrial applications such as the removal of hydrocarbons from oil production equipment, metalworking fluids, and emulsions, lubricants, and greases from machine parts, cooking oils from food processing lines, or meat products being fabricated. There is no set standard which makes it difficult to find an alkyl polyglycoside with properties suitable for each industry’s requirements. In many cases, they can be customized using additives by converting them into different types of surfactants depending on their desired properties.
Alkyl polyglucoside is used in the Plastics industry for manufacturing detergents, cleansers, and soaps. The application has grown over the past few years due to its versatile properties which result in high foaming action. This makes it an ideal chemical additive for cleaning plastic surfaces such as car parts, toys, etc. It has a wide range of applications in the Plastics industry as it does not cause any harm to people or the environment. APG can be used on all surfaces and have an extensive list of uses including floor cleaning, car care products, furniture polishing, dishwashing liquids, and many more.
Alkyl polyglucoside can be used in the pesticide synergist Sgent application due to its characteristic of being biodegradable and nontoxic, in addition to having excellent soil compatibility. This makes it an apt mixture for use in various agricultural applications which includes crop protection chemicals with normal composition or high concentration, pesticides with low toxicity that are mixed into water or organic solvent.
On the basis of Region, the global alkyl polyglucoside market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The North American region has witnessed significant growth in the alkyl polyglucoside market, which can be attributed to the growing demand for APG-based detergents and other end-use industries. The increasing usage of APG in personal care applications due to its non-toxic nature is expected to create new opportunities for players operating in the global alkyl polyglucoside (APG) market over the coming years. The expansion initiatives by key industry players are likely to increase manufacturing capacity at existing facilities as well as drive investments towards setting up greenfield plants across developing regions such as the Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa.
The Middle East & African region is the third-largest market for alkyl polyglucoside in 2019. As of 2018, industrial cleaning agents are the leading application segment with over 40% share while domestic detergents accounted for around 20%. Currently, the Asia Pacific region is a major consumer of APG. China and India are leading consumers of alkyl polyglucosides in this region due to its growing demand for detergents with environmentally friendly properties as well as increasing awareness about pollution from synthetic chemicals among people. In addition, rising disposable income among customers has led to increased expenditure on personal care products such as shampoo and body wash that contain APGs. The rise in population also fuels market growth for household cleaning agents containing APGs. The European alkyl polyglucoside market is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period.
-The growth of the alkyl polyglucoside market is driven by its growing usage in various industries, such as building materials additives, domestic detergents, cosmetics, industrial cleaning agents s and others.
-Cleaning applications are foreseen to remain dominant throughout the forecast period owing to rapidly increasing household expenditure on premium products.
