Sulfosuccinate Market Opportunities, Company Analysis And Forecast To 2023

Global Sulfosuccinate Market: Overview

Sulfosuccinates are sodium salts of monoester or diester sulfosuccinic acid. These are anionic surfactants primarily manufactured from maleic acid anhydride. Sulfosuccinates are mild cleansers and cause less irritancy to skin and eyes vis-à-vis other anionic surfactants. They possess good foaming and biodegradable properties. Additionally, sulfosuccinates offer performance properties such as solubilization, wetting, foaming, and dispersing.

There are two types of sulfosuccinates: diesters and monoesters. Diesters possess poor foaming properties. These have low solubility in water and cause irritation to eyes and skin. Thus, diesters are primarily used as wetting agents and dispersants. On the other hand, monoester sulfosuccinates are majorly used in personal care applications, as these are good foaming agents and are mild to skin and eyes.

Sulfosuccinates are used in wide applications in various industries. These have been employed extensively in the manufacture of personal care products in the past few years. This trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. Generally, sulfosuccinates based on lauryl alcohol ethers are used in the production of mild baby shampoos. Similarly, sulfosuccinates are used in glass cleaners, floor cleaners, carpet cleaners, wall cleaners, and laundry detergents, among others. Besides cleaning formulations, sulfosuccinates are employed in applications in textiles, polymers, leather, printing, paints & coatings, and agriculture industries.

Rise in demand for specialty detergents & cleaning agents and increase in demand for personal care products is estimated to boost demand for sulfosuccinates. However, industrial shift towards bio-based surfactants is projected to hamper the sulfosuccinates market in the near future. Environmental and regulatory issues are also likely to adversely affect the demand for sulfosuccinates in the next few years. Nonetheless, increase in demand for sulfosuccinates in enhanced oil recovery operations is expected to open new avenues for the market during the forecast period.
