Oleochemicals include short, medium, and long chained fatty alcohols, fatty acids, and glycerin together with other types of chemicals derived from plants and animal fats. Oleochemicals are used primarily in personal care, soaps & detergents, surfactants, and food additives among others. In pharmaceutical applications, oleochemicals are primarily utilized to manufacture a variety of pharmaceuticals and personal care products such as cleansing lotions, skin creams, deodorants, body lotions, medicated cosmetics, bath oils, depilatories, shampoos, hair products, and perfumed products among others.

Growing biodegradable products demand on account of decreasing dependency on petrochemicals is expected to remain a major factor driving growth over the next eight years. Furthermore, increasing demand for bio-based products from various end-use industries such as soaps & detergents, pharmaceuticals, and personal care is expected to fuel the market growth in coming years. However, the high competition from the petroleum-based chemicals is the key challenge witnessed in the global market. Moreover, various novel applications of oleochemicals such as biosurfactants, biopolymers, and lubricants are emerging as an alternative to petroleum-based products creating new growth opportunities in the oleochemicals market.
