Linear alkyl benzene is an important component in the production of linear alkylbenzene sulfonate, which is used to produce detergents. Production of linear alkylbenzene sulfonates takes up a major share of the global linear alkyl benzene market. The applications of linear alkylbenzenene sulfonate are further divided into five subcategories: heavy-duty laundry liquids, light-duty dishwashing liquids, laundry powders, industrial cleaners, and other generic household cleaners. The first category, heavy-duty laundry liquids, is widely prevalent, and thus demands the highest share of the global linear alkyl benzene market. Due to growing development and affluence in large tracts of the world, household liquids are expected to be the fastest growing category in the linear alkyl benzene market.
Apart from the manufacture of linear alkylbenzene sulfonate, linear alkyl benzene is also used in other applications such as ink solvents, herbicides, electric cable oil, paints, etc., on a smaller scale.
The rising demand for cleaners is the major driver of the linear alkyl benzene market. Increasing environmental regulations will help the market, since linear alkyl benzene is easily biodegradable and is not a serious health threat. Due to this, the category of industrial cleaners is also expected to enjoy a high CAGR during the report’s forecast period.
The global linear alkyl benzene market is divided into five regional submarkets: North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of World. The growing economies of countries such as China and India made Asia Pacific the dominant region in the 2011 market. Similar growth in Latin American countries such as Brazil is expected to make Asia Pacific and Latin America the fastest growing regional submarkets for linear alkyl benzene, with the former shading the latter.
