Naturally Derived Fatty Alcohol Market size in terms of volume and value 2016-2026


Fatty alcohols are aliphatic compounds derived from fats and oils naturally originating in plants and animals. Fatty alcohols are derived from fatty acids. They contain an even number of carbon atoms. They are colorless oily liquids or solid waxy substances. Due to their amphipathic nature fatty alcohols, act as non-ionic surfactants and widely used in cleaning products. Fatty alcohols can be used as emulsifiers, emollients and thickeners. Fatty alcohols are widely used into cosmetics, detergents, pharmaceutical, plastics, and other industrial products.

Understanding the adverse effects of petrochemical based fatty alcohols, naturally derived fatty alcohols market demand is continuously growing globally.
