Nonylphenol Ethoxylates Market Overview
The global nonylphenol ethoxylates market size was worth US$ XX million in 2020 and is estimated to reach US$ XX million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX % during the forecast period (2021-2028).
Nonylphenol Ethoxylates are members of the complex alkylphenol ethoxylate and alkylphenol class of non-ionic surfactants. They are light orange oily liquids or wax-like solids with chemically stable and non-reactive. Nonylphenols are treated with ethylene oxide under primary conditions to make nonylphenol ethoxylates.
Nonylphenol ethoxylates have been there in the market for more than 50 years. Products composed of nonylphenol ethoxylates are helpful in various sectors such as oil and gas recovery, paints, power generation, pest control products, pulp and paper processing, resins and protective coatings and textile processing. Cleaning products such as degreasers and detergents are also manufactured for institutional and domestic use.
Nonylphenol Ethoxylates Market Dynamics
Growth of various end-use industries is expected to drive the nonylphenol ethoxylates market
Nonylphenol ethoxylates are used in an extensive range of applications such as detergent product formulations, paints and coatings, pulp and paper manufacturing and others, which is the primary driver for the growth of the global nonylphenol ethoxylates market. They act as a wetting agent, detergent, emulsifier and dispersing agent. Moreover, they are used in consumer products such as cosmetics. The rise in consumer demand for personal care products with enhanced benefits is expected to drive the consumption of nonylphenol ethoxylates. In the surfactant market, the demand for synthetic surfactants is growing as compared to natural surfactants.
Stringent regulations over the use of nonylphenol ethoxylates is restraining the market
The nonylphenol ethoxylates take longer for degradation than other surfactants and are proven to be harmful to aquatic species. In many countries, nonylphenol ethoxylates in textile manufacturing are banned due to their toxic properties.
According to EPA, Short-chain NPEs, which consist of nonylphenol with one or two ethoxylate oxide groups attached, are highly toxic to water-dwelling organisms. Longer-chain NPEs aren't as hazardous, but they can degrade in the environment to short-chain NPEs and nonylphenols, which are also highly toxic to aquatic life and can disrupt hormones.
Moreover, companies such as Walmart and Target have told their suppliers to eliminate NPEs from household and personal care products they sell.
Nonylphenol Ethoxylates Market Segment Analysis
Nonylphenol ethoxylates are used in various industrial and laundry cleaning agents due to their excellent cleaning properties. The I&I cleaning segment accounted for almost one-third of the market share in terms of volume.
The paints segment accounts for the second-largest application, followed by oilfield chemicals. In the paints segment, NPEs function as binder emulsifiers and pigment dispersants help improve wetting on low-energy substrates by restricting foam formation during applications and processing. Moreover, in the oilfield chemicals segment, NPEs are utilized to demulsify crude oil and reduce the surface tension in water, thus helping to remove dirt particles from the surface.
Nonylphenol Ethoxylates Market Geographical Analysis
The Asia-Pacific is to dominate the market of nonylphenol ethoxylate over the forecast period owing to an increase in demand from countries such as China, Japan and India.
NPEs offer superior cleaning properties with excellent wetting and low-foaming and are suitable for all industrial and institutional cleaning activities. With the launch of the "Make in India" program, India is anticipated to become the fifth largest manufacturing country by the end of 2025 and aims to achieve a GDP share of about 25%. Besides, China's industrial sector is the largest and contributes about 39% of the country's GDP. Moreover, nonylphenol ethoxylates are used in the production of various agrochemicals. In India, agriculture has about a 14% share of the GDP.
Furthermore, China's National Development and Reform Commission stated that domestic sales of apparel and knitwear stood in China is around US$ 172.4 billion in 2019, which increased by 3 percent year-on-year.
