Alkylphenols are a class of organic compounds obtained by the alkylation of phenols. There are many commercially important alkylphenols such as propylphenol, butylphenol, amylphenol, heptylphenol, octylphenol, nonylphenol, dodecylphenol and related "long chain alkylphenols" (LCAPs). The first 2 members of this homologous series are methylphenol and ethylphenol. But, they are more commonly referred to by their specific names, cresols, and xylenols respectively.

According to the publisher, the global Alkylphenol market is expected to witness a sluggish growth rate during the forecast period. Alkylphenols are used extensively in the manufacturing of detergents, as additives for fuels and lubricants, polymers, and as components in phenolic resins. They are also used in manufacturing fragrances, thermoplastic elastomers, antioxidants, oil field chemicals, and fire retardant materials. The growth of the surfactants and synthetic resins industry is likely going to drive the alkylphenol market. But the use of alkylphenol can be hazardous which can serve as a restraint for the market. The European Union has implemented restrictions on the sales and use of certain alkylphenols due to its toxicity.

The Asia Pacific region is currently the global leader in this market, especially due to its demand in countries India and China. Europe and North America have stagnant growth in this market during the forecast period due to strict regulations by itsgovernments.

The major players in the global Alkylphenol market are PCC SE, FORMOSAN UNION CHEMICAL CORP, Huntsman Corporation, DIC Corporation, Sasol Limited, among others.

In August 2019, Ashland Global Specialty Chemicals Inc introduced Strodex PK-86NV specialty phosphate ester surfactant, a new performance-enhancing additive for waterborne architectural coatings. As per Lisa Macron, who is the global marketing manager of Ashland coatings, compared to other products in the PK line, Strodex PK-86NV surfactant combines high active content with near-zero VOCs. The product also contains no alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEOs) and is REACH compliant.
