Alpha Olefin Sulfonates Market Worth $448.1 Million by 2027

Chicago, Aug. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Alpha Olefin Sulfonate Market is expected to reach USD 448.1 Million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 2.3% from USD 399.9 Million in 2022, according to a new report by MarketsandMarkets™. The alpha-olefin sulfonate market is primarily driven by growth and increasing demand for household cleaning products, laundry detergents, and industrial chemicals. Alpha-Olefin Sulfonate is a surfactant with excellent performance, foaming and biodegradability properties. This is primarily the first preference for most industries. However, the presence of bio-based anionic surfactants made from renewable resources may hinder its petroleum-based growth, considering environmental and financial concerns, they are preferable.

“C14-C16 blend is expected to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast period”

Sodium C14-C16 olefin sulfonate is the most stable form of AOS. It is a powerful cleaning agent with high foaming capacity and a well emulsifying surfactant. Due to its stability and high performance, it is the most widely used type of AOS surfactants. The growing demand for high performance foaming and emulsifying surfactants is a key factor in this dominance of this segment. Strict regulations restrict the use of chemical-based antioxidants in personal care, resulting in high demand for biodegradable AOS.

“The shampoo application is expected to be the fastest growing application in the alpha-olefin sulfonate market, in terms of value”

AOS, when added to a liquid, reduces surface tension. Reducing surface tension improves spreading and wetting properties. AOS are responsible for the foaming and conditioning properties, mild detergent actions and preservative properties which are essential in shampoo. They also act as cleansing agents, emulsifiers, foaming agents, solubilizers and wetting agents and are therefore mainly used in high-end shampoos. AOS demand is mainly driven by the strong growth of herbal hair care products.
