Additionally, in 2021, WiZ launched its series of antibacterial foam hand wash. Thus, with the growing demand for personal care products, the demand for detergents and surfactants of linear alkylbenzene sulfonate has also increased during the pandemic and is further estimated to incline in the upcoming years.
Linear Alkylbenzene Sulfonate Market Segment Analysis – By Type
The soft linear alkylbenzene sulfonate segment held the largest share in the linear alkylbenzene sulfonate market in 2021. Soft linear alkylbenzene sulfonate is utilized in the anionic surfactants and detergent as an additive for personal care products such as dishwashing liquids, laundry detergents, and shampoos. They are also used as heavy-duty cleaners, household cleaning supplies such as floor and furniture polishes, and textile softeners. Soft linear alkylbenzene sulfonate exhibits a balance between performance benefits and cost-effectiveness and they retain good foam stability at low pH levels as compared to hard linear alkylbenzene sulfonate, having a poor foaming characteristic. Therefore, it has application in liquid soap formulations that generate rich lathers with an enduring conditioning effect on the skin. Thus, with the growing demand for soft linear alkylbenzene sulfonate, the market for linear alkylbenzene sulfonate will further rise over the forecast period.

Linear Alkylbenzene Sulfonate Market Challenges
Environmental and Health Effects of Linear Alkylbenzene Sulfonate Will Hamper the Market Growth
The usefulness of linear alkylbenzene sulfonate comes along with various effects. Linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS) is one of the synthetic surfactants that is widely used. It causes pesky stains since undispersed detergents and softeners sometimes leave a waxy-like feeling and even a blue stain on garments. Linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS) is biodegradable, its entrance into the environment at a large level harms the water bodies. It is a common organic pollutant in freshwater environments. Linear alkylbenzene sulfonate detergents can cause liver and kidney damage, disrupted growth and metabolism, hormonal problems, and cancer.
