Fatty Acid Ester Market: Overview
The market growth is propelled by
increasing demand for low-calorie natural ingredients to promote weight loss
and adhere to changing perceptions of beauty and appearance.
Technological advances have paved the way
for higher efficiency and sustainable production of these esters, thanks to
genetic engineering, the introduction of high-yield crops, and the evolving
fatty profiles of canola, sunflower, and other vegetable oils. In addition, the
advent of sustainable emulsifiers and stabilizers created by Fatty Acid Esters
(FAEs) has changed the personal care products and cosmetics industry.
Fatty acid esters are synthesized by
dehydrating fatty acids and alkyl alcohol and provides a conditioning effect by
softening the skin to create a soothing sensation. High-polarity active
ingredients and UV absorbers are also added to cosmetics.
Several skins, hair, and even infant care
creams and lotions contain these esters as a sustainable, dermatologically
reliable alternative to toxic synthetic chemicals and ingredients. Fatty acid
esters are also widely used in detergents, industrial lubricants, and
surfactants due to high thermooxidative stability, viscosity, biodegradability,
hydrolytic stability, and lubricity. These detergents are widely used by both
industries and consumers, due to foaming, moisturizing, stability, and
Fatty acid esters made from natural
ingredients are inexpensive compared to synthetic petroleum-based chemicals.
Consumers and manufacturers are increasingly adopting these products in order
to combat climate change, high production costs and ensure overall long-term
benefits. Declining edible oil prices, rising living standards and increasing
embedded oil consumption due to the proliferation of processed fried foods are
also driving their demand in food and other end-use industries.
Global Fatty Acid Ester Market: Market Segmentation
on Product, the Fatty Acid Ester market is segmented into Glycerol
Monostearate, Medium Chain Trigylcerides, Isopropyl Esters and Others. Glycerol
Monostearate has been widely used in food processing applications, mainly for
ice-cream and other frozen foods. Increased demand for organic thickeners
and emulsifiers in the food industry has boosted global Glycerol Monostearate
sales in recent years.
Global Fatty Acid Ester Market: Market Application
on Application, the global Fatty Acid Ester market segmented into Lubricants,
Pharmaceuticals, Personal care & Cosmetics, Surfactants and Others. Major
applications for fatty acid esters include personal care and cosmetics,
lubricants, food processing, surfactants and detergents, pharmaceuticals, and
others such as drug delivery, coatings, and adhesives and construction. The
Personal Care and Cosmetic segment was the largest application segment and
accounted for a high market share in terms of volume. Positive eco-profile and
increased product functionality have resulted in high demand for niche
applications such as thickening, anti-irritant, water solubility, and pigment
Global Fatty Acid Ester Market: Regional
Based on region, the global Fatty Acid Ester market segmented
into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East &
Africa. North America had the largest market share of more than in terms of
revenue in the previous year. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the
fastest-growing market for fatty acid ester, outstripping other regions with an
exponential CAGR in terms of volume in the coming years. Expanding end-use
industries such as lubricants, food, personal care and cosmetics,
pharmaceuticals, and others such as detergents and surfactants, adhesives and
coatings are likely to generate high regional demand.
