Market Overview:

The global linear alkylbenzene (LAB) market size reached 4.22 Million Tons in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach 5.41 Million Tons by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.06% during 2023-2028. Rising product utilization in manufacturing detergent and cleaners, widespread product adoption in industrial applications, and the development of new production methods represent some of the key factors driving the market.

Linear alkylbenzene (LAB) is a transparent and odorless organic compound used as an intermediate in the production of detergents and surfactants. It is produced using various petrochemical products, such as kerosene, n-paraffin, and benzene, through hydrogen fluoride (HF) and aluminum trichloride (AlCl3) processes. LAB is widely used in producing powder detergents, household cleaners, agricultural herbicides, polymers, electric cable oils, and solvents for ink and paints. It is also used as an emulsifier, emollient, moisturizing, degreasing, wetting, and de-coloring agent. LAB is a cost-effective and biodegradable compound that easily removes oil and fatty acids from fabrics and textiles. It is also chemically stable, slightly soluble in water, and has a high flash point. As a result, LAB finds extensive applications across the detergent, textile, paper, and polymer industries.

Linear Alkylbenzene (LAB) Market Trends:

The rising product utilization in detergents and cleaners is one of the primary factors driving the market growth. Linear alkylbenzene (LAB) is widely used to produce linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS), which is a chemical surfactant used in manufacturing household cleaners, detergents, washing powder, liquid soap, scouring sticks, oil soap, industrial cleaners, and dishwashing liquids due to its high performance, low cost, and non-toxicity. In addition to this, the widespread product utilization to produce linear alkylbenzene sulfonic acid (LBSA), which is used as an emulsifier, mercerizing agent, and wetting agent in textiles, pesticides, lathering applications, and polymerization, is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the rising product demand to produce heavy linear alkyl benzene (HLAB) used for various industrial applications, such as heat transfer fluids, refrigeration lubricants, oils, metal working fluids, and rubber compounding, is providing an impetus to the market growth. Additionally, the introduction of new production methods, such as the Detal process that uses solid catalysts, including zeolites and metal oxides, to improve linearity, minimize acidic discharge, enhance quality, maximize product yield, and eliminate the need for effluent treatment is positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, rising product adoption as a solvent for large-scale liquid scintillator detectors due to its high flash point, low toxicity, good optical transparency, low radioactive impurity, and excellent compatibility with acrylic is propelling the market growth. Other factors, including rapid industrialization, rising adoption of biodegradable surfactants due to increasing environmental concerns, escalating demand for personal hygiene and cleanliness, and the widespread product utilization in the paper industry as a de-coloring agent, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
