Global octylphenol ethoxylates market is divided into applications, end user industry, and region. On the basis of applications, the octylphenol ethoxylates market is segmented into detergents, de-foaming agents, dispersants, stabilizer, adhesive, cleaners, and others. Octylphenol ethoxylates can also be used to produce octylphenol ether sulphates. Octylphenol ethoxylates are mainly used as emulsifiers for emulsion polymerization to produce polymers such as styrene-butadiene. Octylphenol ethoxylates has also found its application in textile and leather auxiliaries such as hot melts, textile printing, leather finishing etc. In leather and textile auxiliaries, the octylphenol ethoxylates are used as emulsifiers in finishing agents, which are mainly applicable during the production of styrene-butadiene copolymers. Finishing agents cover leather and textiles with a thin polymer film to make the material more resistant to water, dust and light. They also impart a shiny appearance to the leather. Furthermore, in application of water-based paints, octylphenol ethoxylates are used as emulsifiers and dispersants, even though the emulsifying properties are more dominant than dispersants. They act in a similar manner when incorporated into pesticide formulations and also aid dispersion of the product over leaf surfaces. Due to the presence of a long chain ethoxylate group, it also finds its application as an emulsifier or dispersant in various agrochemical formulations. Moreover, pesticides are highly utilized in the agriculture industry, likewise the increasing consumption of pesticides will propel the demand of octylphenol ethoxylates. Increasing population in various region such as Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America and Middle East are additional drivers for the demand of octylphenol ethoxylates.
On the basis of end user the octylphenol ethoxylates market is segmented into textiles, agriculture, pulp & paper, pharmaceutical, oilfield, personal care, paint & coatings, plastics, and others. Among all industries, plastic industry has occupied the highest market share especially in Asia Pacific region. The increasing consumption of octylphenol ethoxylates in various industries such agriculture, pharmaceutical, textiles, plastic, paint & coatings, and others will drive the global octylphenol ethoxylates market in the forecasted period.
