Global narrow range ethoxylates sales were valued at USD 4.05 Billion in 2020. They are expected to grow at a compound annual rate (CAGR), of 9.0% between 2021 and 2028. Manufacturers have been able to shift their focus to making cleaners that are more environmentally friendly due to growing consumer awareness about hygiene standards and safety. This has positively impacted the market growth. The increasing demand for surfactants, as well as other cleaning products, has been a major factor in driving demand for narrow-range ethoxylates. Market growth is expected to be boosted by the addition of narrow-range ethoxylates, which will improve surfactants' overall performance.
Due to their extensive use in surface disinfectants, the demand for narrow-range ethoxylates has increased significantly in the wake of the unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak. This has contributed to market growth by increasing the demand for cleaning products due to growing consumer fear.
Industrial production of narrow range ethoxylates is possible by adding ethylene oxide or fatty alcohol to the solution in the presence an appropriate alkaline catalyst. They are biodegradable and nonionic surfactants. They have a number of beneficial properties, including reduced irritation to the eyes/skin and lower alcohol content.
Because of their excellent properties in cleaning products, surface-active substances can be used as degreasing agents. These properties allow them to be used as part of a variety of product formulations such as laundry soap, all-purpose cleaners, and hard surface cleaners. They are also used in a variety of end-use applications, such as engine cleaning and all-purpose cleaning, vehicle washing, detergents for textiles, machine disheswashing and microemulsions.
Commercial sales of narrow range ethoxylates take place via B2B channels to end-use industries such as leather, textile, agrochemicals, paints and coatings. End-user manufacturers use narrow range ethoxylates as part of their product formulations for cleaning products such as surface disinfectants or sanitizers. End-user companies can either sell their products directly or through other intermediaries such as wholesalers and retailers.
The fluctuating costs of raw materials are a major factor in determining the price. The price of a product is affected by the fluctuating cost of raw materials. This includes ethylene oxide, fatty acids, and other products. There was a strong demand for products that could be used for other purposes, leading to an increase of the product price.
In 2020, 64.9% of the revenue came from commercial cleaning applications. Because they can emulsify soil and help in suspending particulate, narrow-range ethoxylates are becoming more popular in commercial cleaning products. They can also be used extensively in multi-purpose cleaners that can be used in commercial cleaning formulations. The importance of safety and cleanliness in the commercial sector has increased, which has led to a greater demand for cleaning products.
Three main applications of narrow range ethoxylates include household, industrial, and commercial cleaning. For cleaning products that are less concentrated, narrow range ethoxylates can be used to improve their degreasing properties. They can also be used as surfactants and builders. Due to the spread of COVID-19, the demand for narrow-range ethoxylates in healthcare, hospitality, food service, and cleaning is on the rise.
For industrial cleaning, narrow-range ethoxylates can be used for a variety of purposes, including metal degreasing and fiber refining. Because they are non-persistent and cost-effective, are highly effective in industrial cleaning formulations, are water-miscible, non-persistent, safe for the environment, and provide high performance, they are widely used. They do not produce foam which makes them an attractive choice for manufacturers. Foam may decrease cleaning performance and slow down production.
Asia Pacific was responsible for 32.3% of the total revenue in 2020. Demand is driven by the growing awareness of hygiene and health, as well as the adoption of high standards in cleaning and disinfection for both commercial and household cleaning applications. Due to increased demand for cleaning products due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the consumption of narrow-range ethoxylates has been on the rise, particularly in surface disinfectants. It is expected that the availability of low-cost active ingredients such as ethylene oxide for production of narrow range Ethoxylates will accelerate industry growth, both at the domestic and international levels.
China will be a major shareholder in the Asia Pacific region over the forecast period due to the widespread spread of COVID-19 throughout the country. Japan's strict hygiene standards will drive significant growth over the next few years. India's growing population and awareness of hygiene and health will drive the industry.
North America's market is experiencing significant growth due to the increasing demand for commercial dishwashers and commercial cleaning machines for various applications.
