"Alcohol ethoxylates to witness the highest growth rate during forecast period"

Alcohol ethoxylates is expected to witness the highest growth rate from 2016 to 2021. Alcohol ethoxylates are the most widely used type of non-ionic surfactants. Alcohol ethoxylates are composed of an alkyl chain, which is combined with ethylene oxide. These are surface active agents, substances that are used to change the surface tension of water to assist in applications such as cleansing, wetting surfaces, foaming, and emulsifying.

Being non-ionic surfactants, alcohol ethoxylates can remove grease effectively, which makes them suitable to be used in laundry products, household cleaners, and hand & dishwashing liquids. Alcohol ethoxylates have many other desirable properties such as moderate foaming ability, superior cleaning of fibers, and high tolerance to water hardness. They are widely used in the manufacture of domestic detergents, household & personal care products, and I&I cleaning products.

"Asia-Pacific to be the fastest-growing market during forecast period"

The Asia-Pacific region is projected to be the fastest-growing ethoxylates market due to the growing household & personal care, and pharmaceutical industries in the region. The Middle East & African ethoxylates market is also expected to grow at a high rate due to growing demand for ethoxylates in the oilfield industry.
