Lanolin, also called wool wax or wool grease is manufactured from sebaceous glands of wool-bearing animals such as sheep. Lanolin was introduced in the market in 1992 and was used for the production of pesticides. In today’s scenario, lanolin and its derivatives are used for manufacturing pharmaceutical and cosmetic products.

Lanolin is often mixed with various esters, fatty acid and alcohols and is a soft, yellow, waxy substance which acts as a waterproofing agent to protect wool. Furthermore, lanolin offers moisturizing property for dry skin which results in the wide consumption of lanolin in production of cosmetic products such as moisturizers and body lotions by cosmetic manufacturers.

Lanolin also finds its application in technical sector in the form of lubricants or protective preparations for ferrous metals. For example, strongly corroded ships, sea water tanks, etc. can be protected by using lanolin oil as a low-viscous fluid. In the automotive industry, anti-corrosive preparations that contain lanolin are in ample demand.

Global lanolin market is highly fragmented due to the presence of a large number of companies in the arena. However, production of lanolin is quite concentrated in matured regions due to the presence of multinational companies.

Rapid urbanization along with the substantial demand of cosmetic products are expected to fuel the growth of global lanolin market. Rising demand for personal care products, high disposable incomes and growth of pharmaceutical sector are the major driving factors fuelling the growth of lanolin market. Furthermore, the adoption of lanolin in cosmetic sector for manufacturing pocket size products at low cost triggers the growth of lanolin market. Whereas, rising prevalence of chronic diseases and high geriatric population promoting the development of advanced pharmaceuticals and healthcare facilities drive the broadening of global lanolin market. All these factors directly or indirectly enhance the demand of global lanolin market.

Stringent government regulations on protection of animals in major developed countries result in increasing substitution of lanolin by bio-based alternatives and further is expected to hamper the growth of global lanolin market.
