Oleochemicals Market Size to Reach USD 38.61 Billion by 2026

The global oleochemicals market is expected to reach more than USD 38.61 billion by 2026 with a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period as per a new study released by Polaris Market Research. The report “Oleochemicals Market [By Product Type (Fatty Alcohol, Glycerin, Fatty Acid and Others); By Application (Food & Beverage, Personal Care, Detergents & Soaps, Polymers and Others); By Regions]: Market size & Forecast, 2017 – 2026. provides an extensive analysis of present market dynamics and predicted future trends


The growth in the demand for natural derived products of food and beverage, pharmaceutical industries, chemicals are the main drivers to drive oleochemicals market.


Oleochemicals can be defined as various types of chemical products which are derivatives from vegetable triglycerides or animals, they include elements that are of petrochemical product origin. The basic oleochemicals are fatty acids, fatty alcohols, glycerin and methyl esters. Many companies are investing in research and development to innovate new formulations. Many countries are taking active part in developing new formulations that can help to cater to specific requirement from the end user industries. The companies are shifting their focus on the usage of bio-diesel. Due to the stringent rules and regulations in chemical industry, there has been rise in oil prices, this will further decrease the demand for the chemicals. There is also significant shift in the usage towards shale gas. Even though there are many challenges in the market, there is always an advantage of oleochemicals over petrochemicals. Therefore, there will be increase in demand for oleochemicals in the near future.


The consumer has shifted their focus on having healthy and nutritional food which are derived from natural origin. These is one of the main factors to increase the demand for oleochemicals market. The industry is volatile in making profit through depleting fossil fuels and this will be led for more opportunities in the usage of bio diesel. Hence, with all these advantages demand for these products are estimated to increase in the next few years.
