About Fatty Methyl Ester Sulfonate

Fatty methyl ester sulfonates are the derivatives of oils and fats like vegetable oil, palm oil, and coconut oil. These are eco-friendly anionic surfactants that are synthesized by the sulfonation of saturated fatty acid methyl esters. They exhibit high detergency due to the availability of vegetable oils and are used extensively in detergents in the powdered and liquid form. Their raw materials are obtained from renewable and natural resources, because of which they exhibit low toxic effects and are currently used in personal care products. They are readily and easily biodegradable and exhibit lower toxicity compared to petroleum-based detergents.

The analysts forecast the global fatty methyl ester sulfonate market to grow at a CAGR of 18.70% during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: – Global Fatty Methyl Ester Sulfonate Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global fatty methyl ester sulfonate market: emithon, Kuala Lumpur Kepong Berhad, Lion, Stepan, and Wilmar International

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: CHINA FACTORIES GROUP, China Petrochemical, Fenchem, Henan Surface Chemical Industry, Ronas Chemicals, and Zanyu Technology.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Rising demand for personal care products. Fatty methyl ester sulfonate is used in the production of personal care and cosmetic products. It is used as an active ingredient in the production of shampoos, shower, soaps, shaving creams, hair oils, and lotions. The increase in the demand for fatty methyl ester sulfonate from the personal care industry is due to its cost-effective raw materials and easy extractable technique. The rising concern for the side-effects caused by synthetic cosmetic products is leading to a shift in the preference of consumers toward cosmetics made from natural resources. The increase in the demand for personal care products, such as hand wash, fabric cleaners, and stain removers, is resulting in the increase in the demand for fatty methyl ester sulfonate because of its high biodegradability and non-toxicity.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Fatty methyl ester sulfonate as a substitute for alkyl benzene surfactant. Fatty methyl ester sulfonate is synthesized by the esterification and sulfonation of vegetable oils. It is made from renewable resources, such as palm oil and coconut oil. It is used in the production of detergents and surfactants. It is completely biodegradable and less toxic compared to other synthetic detergents. Alkyl benzene surfactant is derived from linear alkylbenzene (LAB). Methyl ester sulfonate surfactants are used extensively in laundry detergents and in industries for cleaning machinery. There are many advantages of methyl ester sulfonate surfactants over alkylbenzene surfactants in terms of production, sustainability, and toxic effects.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Low foam characteristic of fatty methyl ester sulfonate. Fatty methyl ester sulfonate exhibits low foam characteristics in high pH conditions, and it has certain constraints when it is used in a liquid detergent under high temperature. The low foam characteristics of fatty methyl ester sulfonate can be overcome by adding alpha olefin sulfonates to it. Alpha olefin sulfonates act as foam boosters. Moreover, the addition of foaming agents to surfactants will increase the cost of the product.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
