In Q4, the polysorbate market in India had notable fluctuations in prices. Sluggish demand and reduced usage, along with lower feedstock prices for fatty acids and sorbitol, contributed to the further decline in pricing. The persistent decrease in temperature also reduced demand from the frozen food and personal care industries. The general dynamics of the market were also affected by currency devaluation versus the US dollar. There were also persistent fluctuations that mirrored shifts in feedstock prices, industry demand, and exchange rates. At USD 1410/MT at the end of the quarter, the price of polysorbate highlighted the intricate interplay of forces influencing the Indian polysorbate market.

Polysorbate Market Analysis

The global polysorbate market size reached US$ 1.1 Billion in 2023. By 2032, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 1.7 Billion, at a projected CAGR of 5.00% during 2023-2032.

  • Polysorbates are nonionic surfactants that are used in formulations of injectables, vaccines, and vitamins owing to their emulsifying, solubilizing, and stabilizing properties. Moreover, from 2024 to 2032, the Indian vaccine market is projected to develop at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.3%, as estimated by the IMARC group. These compounds make it easier to mix fat-soluble vitamins and drugs with water, improving the consistency and efficacy of pharmaceutical products. Excipients, such as polysorbates, are in high demand as the pharmaceutical sector grows due to advances in biologics and drug formulations. This trend is further supported by rising healthcare spending and an increasing emphasis on sophisticated drug delivery systems.
  • The growing geriatric population is driving the demand for pharmaceutical and healthcare products, encouraging the use of polysorbates. In the pharmaceutical industry, these compounds play a critical role by stabilizing and improving the distribution of drugs that are necessary for treating chronic illnesses connected to aging. According to the data provided by the WHO in 2022, 1 in 6 individuals worldwide will be 60 years of age or older by 2030. The number of individuals in the world who are 60 years of age or older is expected to double (2.1 billion) by 2050. It is projected that between 2020 and 2050, the number of people 80 years of age or older will triple, reaching 426 million. Furthermore, polysorbates support the stability and bioactivity of protein-based therapeutics in the field of biopharmaceuticals, which is essential for treating diseases common in the elderly, such as Alzheimer's and arthritis. As per the Office for National Statistics (ONS), the top two causes of death in 2022 were dementia and Alzheimer's. They were responsible for 65,967 fatalities overall (11.4% of the total), which is an increase from the 61,250 (10.4%) deaths in 2021.
  • Polysorbate is used as an emulsifier in cosmetics and personal care products. It is essential for combining ingredients in products like creams and lotions to offer consistent texture and efficacy. Additionally, it improves the efficacy of skincare products and enriches the user experience with beneficial aspects for skin health by solubilizing vitamins and essential oils. On the basis of the data provided by the International Trade Administration, the cosmetics market in Canada generated approximately USD 1.24 billion in revenue in 2021. Industry revenue is projected to grow by 1.45% annually, reaching USD 1.8 billion by 2024.

Product Description

Polysorbate is a versatile synthetic compound that comprises a sorbitan base esterified with ethylene oxide and fatty acids, which produces a nonionic surfactant that facilitates the mixing of oils and water. It is produced by reacting sorbitol with ethylene oxide in a procedure known as ethoxylation, which is then esterified with fatty acids. It is available in several varieties, including Polysorbate 20, 40, 60, and 80, which are distinguished by the length of the fatty acid chain and the quantity of ethylene oxide units they contain.

It stabilizes protein-based therapies like monoclonal antibodies, which is essential to the biopharmaceutical industry. Polysorbate is used in creams, lotions, and shampoos in the cosmetics sector to maintain product integrity and guarantee equitable dispersion of components. It also serves as an ingredient in the culinary sector, enhancing the texture and shelf life of goods like sauces and ice creams.
