Fatty alcohols are aliphatic alcohols which are mostly linear and monohydric. These can be either saturated or have one or more double bonds. Depending on the raw material usage, fatty alcohols are classified as synthetic or natural. Synthetic fatty alcohols are produced from petrochemicals such as olefins and paraffin, while natural fatty alcohols are derived from renewable resources such as fats, oils, and waxes of plant or animal origin. Depending on the carbon chain length, fatty alcohols can be broadly classified into C6-C10, C11-C14, C15-C22 and other fatty alcohols. The main application areas for fatty alcohols are detergents and soaps, personal care and others. Increasing concerns regarding the effect of petrochemicals use on the environment have driven the use of bio-based, sustainable chemicals. The industry has started adopting biodegradable products and base chemicals through bio-based raw materials for the reduction of its reliance on petrochemicals and to decrease carbon footprint. Regulations regarding the environmental hazards associated with petrochemical-based products are expected to drive the market adoption. Also, increasing demand for personal care products and detergents & soaps in developing regions is estimated to drive the adoption of fatty alcohols during the forecast period.
