Linear Alkyl Benzene Market size is forecast to reach $11.8 billion by 2025, after growing at a CAGR of 4.7% during 2020-2025. With rise in demand for cleaners and increased shale gas production, the Linear alkyl benzene market is witnessing an increase in demand. Increasing Governments’ focus on environmental regulations is expected to increase the growth of the Linear Alkyl Benzene market.
Application – Segment Analysis
Surfactant & Detergent has been the primary market for Linear alkyl benzene as, Surfactants are one of many different compounds that make up a detergent and unsaturated polyester works as resins in it. They are added to remove dirt from skin, clothes and household articles particularly in kitchens and bathrooms. They are also used extensively in industry. The term surfactant comes from the words surface active agent. Surfactants function by breaking down the interface between water and oils and/or dirt. They also hold these oils and dirt in suspension, and so allow their removal. They are able to act in this way because they contain both a hydrophilic (water loving) group, such as an acid anion and a hydrophobic (water hating) group, such as an alkyl chain. Izod test is has become the standard testing procedure for comparing the impact resistances.

End Use – Segment Analysis
Laundry & Detergents industry holds the largest market share in Linear alkyl Benzene market. Linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LABS) is a colorless organic compound and an intermediate chemical, used mainly for the purpose of manufacturing household and industrial cleaning agents. Thermoplastic composites material is highly used for packaging of personal care and detergents products. LABS also enjoy a good demand from the detergent industry as its basic raw material. The applications of LABS include heavy-duty laundry liquids, light-duty dishwashing liquids, laundry powders, etc. Countries such as India, China, etc., are the leading manufacturer of laundry detergent. India is one of the largest producers of soaps and detergents, globally. Government initiatives, such as the Swachh Bharat Mission, promote health and hygiene. Such initiatives, along with growing usage of soaps and detergent, have led to the growth of the manufacturing industry, which is further boosting the demand of Linear alkyl benzene market.
Geography – Segment Analysis
APAC has dominated the Linear alkyl benzene market with a share of more than x%, followed by North America and Europe. In countries such as India, China, the market for the soap, washing powder and synthetic detergent industry is growing, due to increasing awareness about hygiene and development in the liquid soap segment. China is becoming the largest market in terms of cosmetics and skincare products, globally. Whereas, India is one of the largest producers of soaps in the world. The aforementioned factors are contributing to the increasing demand for linear alkyl benzene (LAB) consumption in the region, during the forecast period.
Drivers – Linear Alkyl Benzene Market
Wide range of Market
In recent times major detergent manufacturers prefer using Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB), owing to its cost-performance ratio and versatility nature. LAB is also considered as one of the safest anionic surfactants from human health and environmental point of view. Household care products such as laundry detergents and cleaning and care products are the main end products of Linear Alkyl benzene. So linear alkyl benzene becomes so much important for the production of household products, owing to this the market demand for Linear Alkyl benzene market will grow.
Implementation of Stringent Environment Regulations
Growing governments regulations towards environmental-friendly products have led to significant rise in the demand for linear alkylbenzene sulfonate-based personal care products and detergents, is likely to aid in the market growth of Linear alkyl benzene. Novel Polymer was first synthesized from Coconut oil, rosin and maleic anhydride and then used with sodium lauryl sulphate as mixed active matter in powder detergent formulation with a view to replace the conventional active matter like Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulphonate (LABS). The reaction conditions of novel polymer such as mole ratio, temperature, time of reaction and use of catalyst have been standardized to get a product with desired HLB ratio, viscosity and solubility.

Challenges – Linear Alkyl Benzene Market
Availability of alternative products
Availability of alternative synthetic chemicals and pricing advantage over the linear alkylbenzene sulfonate-based products may hamper the growth of Linear alkyl benzene market. A comparison of our novel polymer-based detergents with commercial samples shows that novel polymer based powder detergent give excellent foaming, surface tension reduction and detergency properties. The raw material cost of our novel detergents in reasonable and they can be tried on pilot scale and commercial scale production. The special feature of these detergents is freedom from conventional linear alkyl benzene sulphonate and sodium tripoly phosphate so they can be labeled as Eco friendly products for green environment.
Technology launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the Linear Alkyl Benzene market. Major players in the Linear Alkyl Benzene Market are Cepsa Química Bécancour, Ho Tung chemicals, Sasol, Huntsman International LLC, and Reliance Industries Limited., among others.
