Ethoxylates are organic compounds produced by adding epoxides or ethylene oxide (EO) to substrates like alcohols, acids, amines and vegetable oils in the desired molar ratio. They are hydrophobic and hydrophilic in nature, which helps them to dissolve in oil and water, depending on the type of ethoxylate used in the process. Due to this, they help lower the surface tension between two different types of liquids or between gases and liquids. They also offer other properties such as high-water solubility, good formulation, wetting ability, and low aquatic toxicity.
The global ethoxylates market is primarily driven by their increasing applications across diverse end-use industries, ranging from paints and coatings and textile processing to personal care, agriculture, and pulp and paper. Due to their cleaning, emulsifying, foaming, wetting and dispersing properties, ethoxylates are utilized in detergents, soaps, paints, adhesives, fabric softeners, inks, ski waxes, emulsions, anti-fogs, snowboard wax, and deinking of recycled papers. Ethoxylates also play an essential role in personal care products such as cosmetics, shampoos, shower gels, hair conditioners, and toothpaste. Additionally, the process of dyeing and finishing in the textile industry also employs ethoxylate, thereby positively influencing the market growth. Besides this, the leading companies are focusing on introducing low-rinse products like methyl ester ethoxylates, which produce low foam to reduce water wastage. Furthermore, they are also developing sustainably sourced ethoxylates, which lower the manufacturing and raw material costs.
