Fatty Methyl Ester Sulfonate Market Overview

The Fatty Methyl Ester Sulfonate Market is expected to grow at a high CAGR of 15.1% during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

Fatty methyl ester Sulfonate is an anionic surfactant derived from olive oil, coconut oil and palm oil. These eco-friendly FMES are anionic surfactants derived by esterification of fatty acid present in different oils followed by sulfonation. Methyl ester of palm fatty acid oil is sulfonated by sulfur trioxide to produce FMES. The fatty acid usually has between 12 and 18 carbon atoms, and the carbon chain length is a crucial factor shaping the potential surfactant properties of FMES.

Due to high vegetable oil content, FMES exhibit high detergency and are widely used in powdered and liquid types of detergents. As the raw material used for the synthesis of FMES is derived from renewable and natural sources, they impart low harmful effects. FMES can be used in personal care products such as shampoo, soaps, dishwasher gel, etc. FMES are quickly and conveniently biodegradable and show lower toxicity than detergents dependent on petroleum and possess high detergency and calcium ion stability.

Fatty Methyl Ester Sulfonate Market Dynamics

The global fatty methyl ester sulfonate market is driven by growing FMES applications in cosmetics, liquid detergent and washing powder. The growing demand for natural ingredients in personal care products and cosmetic products creates immense opportunities for the FMES market to grow in the coming years. Increasing government inclination towards adopting renewable and sustainable products in regular daily products is expected to build a massive demand for FMED in the forecast period.

Growing FMES application in cosmetics, liquid detergent and washing powder has accelerated growth in recent times.

Improving the standard of living is fueling the demand for casual clothing in recent times. The rising penetration of washing machines in economically stable countries drives the demand for cost-effective detergents in the past few years. Increasing the preference of manufacturers towards adopting bio-based raw materials is another factor adding value to the growing market of FMES.

The significant growth of the detergent industry market is as FMED offers physiochemical properties that enable it to act as a washing agent. FMES exhibits high detergency and calcium ion stability. Various studies show that FMES can offer improved foaming and cleaning performance compared to traditional laundry compositions relying on alkyl benzene sulfonate and soap.

FMED becomes an adequate replacement for such surfactants. Apart from providing better foaming and cleaning properties, FMES can tackle other alkyl benzene sulfonate challenges as FMED is renewable, less toxic and comparatively less expensive. Thus this is expected to boost the FMED market in the forecast period.

For instance, in September 2020, Emery Oleochemicals announced a range of EMERY E fatty acid esters. These fatty acids provide colour, low odor and good biodegradability. These product lines are the alternative for petro-chemical based materials for various industrial purposes such as bio-diluent solvent, cleaning and stripping product and cosmetic emollient and dispersant.

Growing demand for natural ingredients in personal care and cosmetic products creates immense opportunities for the FMES market to grow during the forecast period.

The growing young population has increased the spending on personal care products as more importance is being given to grooming and styling these days. Stringent government policies towards adopting eco-friendly products have uplifted the demand for bio-based personal care products in recent times, thereby upgrading the FMES market in the forecast period.

FMED is an active ingredient in shower gel, shampoo, soap, shaving cream, hair oil, lotion, etc. The simultaneously adverse impact of synthetic chemical products on skin health and product disposal has boosted natural ingredients' demand across different age groups. The growing demand for personal care products such as fabric cleaner, hand wash and stain remover generates the demand for FMES due to its biodegradability and non-toxicity nature.

For instance, in 2014, Emery Oleochemicals commercialized the production of Roundtable on Sustainable Plam Oil (RSPO) segregated derivatives. EMERCOL series promises to deliver performance and economic benefits by meeting sustainability demands in the making of personal care items such as creams, lotions, deodorants, make-up preparation and bases and hair conditioners.

Stringent government policies towards the use and release of toxic chemicals from the industries to reduce the increasing impact of carbon footprint and the presence of hazardous petrochemical surfactants in synthetic products have forced the detergent manufacturers to switch to an eco-friendly and bio-degradable ingredient in their products, creating lucrative opportunities for the manufacturers targeting eco-friendly FMES products.

Growing environmental concerns has forced the government of economically stable countries to build stringent norms for various sectors. The laundry care segment is one of the growing sectors. Increasing use and release of toxic chemicals from the industries has arrived at strict government norms concerning wastewater management due to hazardous petrochemical surfactants and auxiliaries. Due to the increasing use of synthetic compounds, various industrial and residential establishments are severely affected. They are thus forcing detergent manufacturers to switch to an eco-friendly and bio-degradable ingredient in their products.

A similar case has been seen in the personal care, and the cosmetic sector as stagnant growth has been seen in the personal care and cosmetic industry due to harmful effects and the adverse impact of synthetic ingredients on skin and health. It leads to building immense opportunities for natural products in present times and is expected to build the FMES market to show a significant rise in the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis on Fatty Methyl Ester Sulfonate Market
