Linear alkylbenzene (LAB) is a vital ingredient for synthetic detergents. Nearly 98% of LAB production is used to manufacture linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS), which is used in household synthetic detergents. The remaining 2% of the demand for LAB comes from other applications, such as agricultural herbicides, emulsion polymerization, wetting agents, electric cable oil, ink solvents, and the paint industry.


The Asia-pacific linear alkylbenzene market was valued at $2,705.0 million in 2012, and is projected to reach $3,600.6 million by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2013 to 2018. This growth will be heavily driven by developing regions because of low penetration and low per capita expenditure on detergents.


Alkylbenzene is also known as detergent alkylate, and a large portion of is converted to LAS, which is an anionic surfactant used mainly in household laundry, cleaning products, and in some industrial applications. LAB is also commonly used as raw material in the production of biodegradable household detergents. It is mainly produced from n-paraffins, kerosene, and benzene. Heavy-duty laundry liquids principally utilized for commercial laundry purposes and are the most common users of LAS. Alkylbenzene in small proportions is employed in the manufacture of ink, agricultural herbicides, paint industry, wetting agents, electric cable oil, and so on.


In 2012, around 1,791.4 KT of alkylbenzene was consumed in Asia-Pacific, with an anticipated demand growth of about 2.9% from 2013 to 2018. China was the leading consumer of alkylbenzene in the region, consuming about 34.5% of the total regional demand in 2012, with an expected demand growth of about 3.4% during the forecast period. 


The key countries covered are China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, India, and Thailand. The various applications studied include linear alkylbenzene sulfate and others. Further, as a part of qualitative analysis, the research report provides a comprehensive review of the important drivers, restraints, opportunities, and burning issues in this market.
