Dodecanol Market Segment Analysis – By Material Type

Coconut Oil segment hold the largest share of more than 40% in the dodecanol market in 2019. Dodecanol was previously prepared commercially by reduction of ethyl laurate (from coconut oil) with sodium & absolute alcohol, but presently it is by catalytic hydrogenation of coconut oil fatty acids or their esters under high pressure. The catalytic hydrogenation of coconut oil’s fatty acid is most widely used for dodecanol formulation as it results in high product purity and good yield. Cost effectiveness and relatively easy extraction of dodecanol are the major factors driving the market growth owing to the surging demand for dodecanol from to make surfactants and lubricating oils.

Dodecanol Market Segment Analysis – By Application

Based on the application, solvent segment holds the largest share of more than 25% in the dodecanol market in 2019. Dodecanol is used as a solvent in paint, coating and dyes to enhance the properties and adjust its viscosity. It also acts as a surface-active ingredient in paint and coatings which adsorbs at the newly formed oil–water interface during emulsion preparation and protects the newly formed droplets against immediate coalescence. Increasing in construction activities across the world accelerate the use of paint and dyes, subsequently fueling the demand for dodecanol. In addition, International Energy forecasted that global floor area in buildings double to more than 415 billion square meter by 2050, aiding the demand of dodecanol for paint and coatings formulation.

Dodecanol Market Segment Analysis – By End-Use Industry

Automotive segment holds the largest share of more than 25% in the dodecanol market in 2019. Dodecanol are extensively used in the formulation of fuel additives as it enhances fuel miscibility and also lower hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide emissions during combustion of fuel. Surging use of dodecanol in lubricating oil, brake fluids, and grease also drives the growth of the dodecanol market. According to the European Automotive Manufacturers Association, European Union exported 5 million passenger cars with a value of €124 billion in 2019 and over the same period, the value of EU car imports substantially increased (+15.6%) to a total of €53 billion. Also, OICA estimated that commercial vehicle sales reached 27 million in 2019 from 25 million in 2017. Thus, flourishing automotive industry and various government restrictions for reducing GHG emissions from combustion of fuels are expected to drive the growth of the dodecanol market. For instance, The Safer Affordable Fuel-Efficient (SAFE) Vehicles Rule for both passenger cars and light trucks, issued by NHTSA and EPA in March 2020, sets tough but feasible fuel economy and carbon dioxide standards that increase 1.5% in stringency each year from model years 2021 through 2026.

Dodecanol Market Segment Analysis – Geography

Asia Pacific holds the largest share in the dodecanol market with a share of more than 45% in 2019. The growing infrastructural development, rising per capita income of the individuals, higher domestic demand along with the availability of low-cost labor is expected to drive the demand for dodecanol in the region. Dodecanol is used as a fiber softener and anti-wrinkle agent in textile industries. Increasing demand for apparel and expansion of textile industries across the country is aiding the growth of market. According to Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), India’s textile and apparel exports accounted for US$ 38.70 billion in 2019 and is expected to increase to US$ 82.00 billion by 2021, subsequently augmenting the demand of dodecanol for the enhancing the properties of textile fabrics. In addition, dodecanol are also used as disinfectant and additive for ointment base and cream conditioners in healthcare. In 2019, the government of Malaysia allocated a sum of US$ 7 billion to the public health sector, an increase of 7.8 per cent from 2018. In 2019, Australian Government announced a $5 billion, 10-year investment plan for the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) as a part of its 2019–20 budgets to support Australian health and medical research. Thus, increasing healthcare investments in various regions of APAC will boost the healthcare sector, which in turn fuel the demand for dodecanol.

Dodecanol Market Drivers

Growing demand from agriculture industry

Dodecanols are extensively used in apple and pear orchards as a Lepidopteran pheromone/sex attractant and also disrupts the mating behavior of certain moths whose larvae destroy crops. Surging use of dodecanol from agriculture sector in the formulation of insecticides, pesticides, and plant metabolite drives the growth of the dodecanol market. The decrease in agricultural land due to rapid urbanization in developing nations further proliferate the need for pesticides for better crop quality and higher yield. For instance, China’s Ministry of Natural Resources estimated that country’s arable land declined by 60,900 hectares and fell to 134.86 million hectares in 2017. In addition, government initiatives to boost the agriculture sector and meet the growing food demand also contribute to the market growth. In 2016, according to China’s Ministry of Agriculture, over 1,300 Chinese enterprises had overseas investments in agriculture, forestry, and fisheries valued at $26 billion. Also, in April 2020, the governments of Canada and Ontario invested up to $2.5 million for the expansion of agri-food sector. Therefore government support to flourish the agricultural sector may increase the demand for agrochemicals and augments the growth of dodecanol market.
