Global Linear Alkyl Benzene LAB Overview

Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) Market was valued at US$ 11.4 Billion in 2024 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 31.00% to reach US$ 133.7 Billion by 2034.

Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) is produced by the reaction of benzene with a linear alkyl chain, typically derived from olefins, which are obtained from petroleum refining. The resulting product is then purified and sulfonated to produce Linear Alkyl benzene Sulfonate (LAS).

One major driver of the LAB market is the increasing demand for liquid laundry detergents, which require higher amounts of Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) compared to powder detergents. The trend towards more efficient and effective cleaning products is expected to drive the demand for Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) Market, as it is an important raw material in the production of high-performance detergents.

Global Linear Alkyl Benzene LAB Dynamics

Rising demand for biodegradable and eco-friendly surfactants

The demand for biodegradable and eco-friendly surfactants is driven by increasing consumer awareness of the environmental impact of cleaning products. Consumers are looking for products that are safe for the environment or do not harm to wildlife and also products like Anti-Pollution Mask and Environmental Protection Equipment. As a result, there is a growing trend towards using surfactants that are derived from natural or renewable sources are biodegradable. Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) is a key raw material used in the production of Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulfonates (LAS), which are the most widely used surfactants in household and industrial cleaning products. Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulfonates (LAS) is preferred over other surfactants due to its excellent cleaning properties, low cost, and biodegradability and is further facilitated the growth of Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) Market.

Growing population and urbanization

Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) is primarily used in the production of biodegradable detergents and cleaners. As the global population continues to grow, the demand for detergents and cleaners is increasing, which in turn is driving the demand for LAB. In addition, urbanization is also contributing to the growth of the LAB market, as more people move to cities and consume more detergents and cleaners.

Restrains:

Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) is a flammable substance and should be handled with care to avoid fire hazards. Appropriate safety measures should be put in place when storing and handling Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) to prevent accidents. Workers who are exposed to LAB during its production or use may be at risk of respiratory problems. Prolonged exposure to LAB fumes can irritate the respiratory system, leading to coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. Adequate ventilation and respiratory protection should be provided to workers to minimize their exposure to Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB), these restrained Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) Market growth.

Global Linear Alkyl Benzene LAB Key Issues Addressed

  • In October 2022, Unilever purchases the world’s first Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) surfactant which is made from renewable carbon. This surfactant is created using green carbon obtained from biomass and is referred to as NextLab linear alkylbenzene (LAB). It offers the same qualities and cleaning effectiveness as LAB made from black carbon and is sustainable and biodegradable.
  • In May 2021, Cepsa launched its Linear Alkylbenzene (LAB) plant in the world to replace hydrofluoric acid (HF) technology with Detal technology, a safer, and more efficient and sustainable process. This minimises the inefficient use of electricity and raw materials, lowers emissions, and produces 1,100 tonnes less garbage annually.
