Fatty Acid Derivative Market Growth Prospects, Shares And Forecast 2025

Press Release   •   Jan 19, 2018 02:18 EST

Fatty acids are chemical compounds, containing long chains of hydrocarbon and terminated carboxylate group. Fatty acids are insoluble in water; however, they are highly soluble in organic solvents. Most fatty acids are derived from natural sources such as vegetable oil and coconut oil, while others are obtained from petroleum. Fatty acid derivatives are obtained from fatty acids using various chemical processes such as hydrogenation, dehydrogenation, and isomerization.

Fatty acid derivatives have a variety of applications in industries. In human body, these acids produce hormone-like substance, which is responsible for regulating various activities in the body such as blood pressure, blood clotting, blood lipid levels, and inflammation response to injury infections. Fatty acid derivatives also act as intracellular messengers in the human body.

There is a growing concern for finding alternative for the products obtained from petroleum, because petroleum sources are going to exhaust after some time in future. Use of petroleum products is immensely hazardous to the environmental. Fatty acid derivatives are environment-friendly alternatives to some petroleum products. Favorable regulations is a driver for the fatty acid derivative market. Innovation and technology in the production of fatty acid derivatives are opening new horizons for its applications. Use of fatty acid derivatives as bio lubricants is projected to propel the market.

Based on chemical structure, the fatty acid derivatives market can be classified into saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. Saturated fatty acids do not contain double bond and each carbon atom in the chain is bonded to two hydrogen atom. Butanoic acid, Hexanoic acid, and Octanoic acid are some of examples of saturated fatty acid. The unsaturated fatty acid segment is further classified into monounsaturated fatty acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids, and trans fatty acids depending upon the degree of unsaturation.
