Growing health and hygiene concerns among the consumers across the globe have increased the demand for linear alkyl benzene. There has been a considerable rise in the demand for linear alkyl benzene across various niche applications. For instance, LAB is used as a fluid in underground electricity transmission cables and is also suitable for underwater cables. Additionally, rising construction spending around the world is expected to fuel the market growth over the forecast period.

Linear alkyl benzene may be defined as a family of organic compounds that appear like a colourless oily liquid. LAB is exclusively derived from petroleum based benzene and linear paraffins, and acts as a vital raw material in the manufacture of synthetic detergents. It may be converted into linear alkyl benzene sulfonate (LAS) or directly supplied to key end use industries. In addition, LAB exhibits high flash point, high light yield and optical transparency along with low radioactive impurities which expand its use in neutrino detectors as well.

Besides acting as an emulsifier and a coupling agent, linear alkyl benzene offers exceptional electrical properties, making them useful for a variety of industrial applications. Additionally, LAB can be easily dissolved, is chemically and physically stable, and offers excellent heat resistance, chemical resistance and plasticity. LAB is highly preferred due to its bio-degradable nature and low cost, thereby driving its demand.

Significant rise in the demand for industrial and household cleaning has led to the growth in consumption of LAS based surfactants for home and personal care applications such as liquid dishwashing soaps and sanitization products. Also, rapid industrialization coupled with increasing disposable income levels, particularly in China and India are expected to foster market growth over the years as consumers are ready to pay high price for premium products.

However, high volatility in the raw material prices, particularly crude oil, may hinder the market growth. Moreover, LAB has been observed to have adverse effects on human health and environment as it is not only toxic but also contributes to the permeation of pollutants into aquatic animals. Furthermore, stringent regulations regarding the use of synthetic surfactants are likely to limit market growth over the next seven years. Therefore, key market players are shifting their focus towards the development of bio-based alternatives in order to reduce the reliance on petrochemical derived linear alkyl benzene.

Some of the key companies operating in the industry include Honeywell International Inc.; Desmet Ballestra; Farabi Petrochemicals Co.; Huntsman International LLC; Cepsa; S.B.K Holding; Indian Oil Corporation Ltd.; ISU Chemical; Sasol Limited; Jintung Petrochemical Corp., Ltd.; Reliance Industries Limited; Chevron Phillips Chemical Company; SEEF Limited; Formosan Union Chemical Corp.; JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy Corporation; among others.
