Stringent Safety Regulations Create Challenges for Alpha Olefin Sulfonates Market Players
While manufacturers in the alpha olefin sulfonates market are concentrating their efforts on minimizing the cost of production, stringent standards and environmental regulations imposed are influencing competitive pricing.
The European Union has adopted REACH regulations, which stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals, to mitigate negative impacts of chemical products on the human health and the environment. All the chemical manufacturers, importers, distributors, downstream users, as well as alpha olefin sulfonates market players have to comply with REACH regulations to carry out operations in the European Economic Area (EEA).
In addition, the United States Environment Protection Agency (EPA) has imposed labeling regulations for chemical products manufactured or marketed in the U.S., under its Safer Choice Program. Though participating in this program is not mandatory for alpha olefin sulfonates manufacturers, consumers in the U.S. prefer to purchase products that meet these standards.

Although adherence to these regulations is beneficial considering the long-term impact of chemicals on the environment, a cost escalation is the bitter medicine in the short run.
Biodegradability of Alpha Olefin Sulfonates: Key to Future Adoption
A majority of personal care product manufacturing companies are aiming to mitigate the environmental impacts of their manufacturing processes as consumers are becoming highly conscious about the carbon footprint of the products they use. While alpha olefin sulfonates exhibit a combination of good emulsification properties and foaming properties, these are also readily biodegradable, which boosts their applications in manufacturing eco-friendly surfactants, thereby, complementing growth of the alpha olefin sulfonates market.
Consumers are becoming conscious about ingredients in personal care products by the virtue of rising awareness about the negative effects of chemicals on the skin. A majority of government organizations, including the Government of Canada, have declared that alpha olefin sulfonates are free from carcinogens, which further provides a fillip to the alpha olefin sulfonates market growth.
Apart from the performance characteristics of alpha olefin sulfonates, such as foaming properties and mildness to the skin, its biodegradability boosts its use as an alternative to linear alkylbenzene sulfonates in a variety of personal care products. The rise in its adoption as an environment-friendly alternative to harmful ingredients is expected to complement growth of the alpha olefin sulfonates market.

Price and Supply Fluctuations of Alpha Olefin Sulfonates: A Key Challenge
Despite the growing preference for alpha olefin sulfonates in a wide range of industrial applications, its volatile prices are creating a hindrance in its adoption in some applications. Alpha olefin sulfonates are ethylene based surfactants, which are derived from petrochemical compounds. On account of this, they are prone to constant fluctuations in supply, affecting its price structure.
Due to turbulent raw material prices and supply uncertainties, alpha olefin sulfonates are likely to get replaced in certain applications by bio-based anionic surfactants such as methyl ester sulfonates (MES) and alcohol ether sulfate (AES), which are derived from palm oil and coconut oil, respectively. This may impact future prospects of the alpha olefin sulfonates market.
Manufacturers Adopt Advanced Manufacturing Processes to Enhance Performance Properties of Alpha Olefin Sulfonates
Industrial applications of alpha olefin sulfonates are mainly attributed to its unique physical properties, such as emulsification and biodegradability. A majority of manufacturers in the alpha olefin sulfonates perform oligomerization of ethylene to manufacture alpha olefin sulfonates commercially. In this process, the carbon chain length distribution makes a significant impact on the interfacial properties of alpha olefin sulfonates.
The significant impact of alkyl chains on interfacial properties of alpha olefin sulfonates makes it important for manufacturers to investigate the retention of important properties, thereby, adding to the production costs. Thereby, in order to reduce the impact of alkyl chain length on performance characteristics of alpha olefin sulfonates, leading market players are adopting advanced technologies such as sulfonation processing technology. This is likely to emerge as a popular trend in the alpha olefin sulfonates market in the upcoming years.
The Fact.MR report provides comprehensive information about the competitive environment in the alpha olefin sulfonates market. With the help of information about key financials, recent company developments, and strategic mergers and acquisitions among leading alpha olefin sulfonates market players, the report helps readers to understand the intensity of competition in the alpha olefin sulfonates market.
The report provides detailed information about leading players in the alpha olefin sulfonates market, including Stepan Company, Huntsman Corporation, Pilot Chemical Company, Clariant AG, Nouryon, Kao Corporation, RSPL Ltd., Nirma Limited, Zanyu Technology Group Co. Ltd., Godrej, Lubrizol, and Enaspol a.s.
Stepan Company, an American manufacturer of specialty chemicals, recently announced that it has acquired the surfactant production facility of BASF Mexicana, S.A. DE C.V. in Mexico through its subsidiary. With the acquisition of the production facility of 50,000 metric tons of capacity, the company is aiming to establish a stronger presence and supply capabilities for surfactants in Mexico and the Latin American region.
