Factors Propelling Growth of the Global Market

Multifunctional attributes including emulsion stabilizer, viscosity increasing agent, perfuming agent, binder and super fattening agent have revved up demand for guerbet alcohols across personal care and cosmetics industries. Guerbet alcohols enable good oxygen permeability, which is an imperative ingredient for application on skin. Attributed to such benefits, guerbet alcohols witness significant demand as a multifunctional ingredient in cosmetic and personal care industry. Furthermore, guerbet alcohols have a relatively high molecular weight due to branching. Due to their high molecular weight, the guerbet alcohols offered enhanced stability as compared to linear or unsaturated alcohols. Such factors will contribute towards growth of the global guerbet alcohols market during the predicted years. Additionally, surge in application of guerbet alcohol based ethoxylates for various industrial purposes is likely to fuel growth of the global guerbet alcohols market in the upcoming years. In contrast to this, increasing prices of guerbet alcohols and their derivatives is likely to inhibit growth of the global guerbet alcohols during the predicted years.
