Report Description
Dodecanol also called as Lauryl alcohol or 1-dodecanol is classified as a fatty alcohol. It is
a colorless, tasteless solid with a floral smell. It is manufactured by hydrogenation of
palm kernel or coconut oil fatty acids. The major use of dodecanol is as a chemical
intermediate for the manufacture of dodecyl sulfate and dodecyl ethoxylate. Additionally,
it is used as a vital raw material in the manufacture of surfactants. It is also used in the
manufacture of pharmaceuticals, lubricating oils, flavoring agents and as an emollient
among other.

The primary driver for dodecanol market is the growing personal care market. The
emergence of products such as fabric softeners, skin care products and fatty alcohol
based detergents are driving the market for dodecanol. The growth of this market is
significant in the developing third world countries, where the manufacturing bases are
finding new ground. Dodecanol can be used in many forms such as alcohol ethoxylate
and sulfates, which are used as wetting agent and emulsifiers in paints and coatings.
Growth of the paints & coatings market is expected to augment the demand for
dodecanol. A restraining factor for this market is that it is acutely toxic to marine
organisms and it is an eye irritant, hence it requires safe handling and disposal.
Report Description
The surfactants market has undergone an evolution from tallow to vegetable oil to synthetic
surfactants and to fatty alcohol surfactants. Over the past few years the use of dodecanol
for surfactants has declined in North America, Western Europe and Japan. There has been a
surge in demand for dodecanol in developing regions such as South Africa, Brazil, China,
Malaysia and Indonesia as new producers have started operating facilities in these

Dodecanol market can be broadly segmented on the basis of applications, such as anionic
surfactants, quaternary ammonium compounds for detergents, nonionic surfactants,
coatings & inks, PVC plasticizers, water treatment, lubricant additives and flavors &
fragrances among others. Dodecanol can be compounded with many functional groups
which impart special properties to it and set it apart from the pure form of dodecanol.
The end use of dodecanol can be classified into four broad categories, namely, personal
care, household detergents, industrial & hard surface cleaning and other uses. Under
personal care, dodecanol can be used in its pure form or as alcohol ethoxylate or as esters
or as quaternary ammonium salts. The end uses for these forms of dodecanol are creams,
lotions, skin products, bath oils, lipsticks, medicated cosmetics and sunscreen agents. For
use in these products, dodecanol acts as a thickener, carrier, opacifier, anti static and sheen
agent. For use in household and industrial detergents, dodecanol acts as a dispersant, foam
controller, wetting agent, foam stabilizer and germicidal carrier. It finds application in
laundry products, wool washing, scouring cleaner and fabric softener.
Report Description
For use in other industries like textiles, leather, plastics, pharmaceuticals and paper,
dodecanol imparts properties such as that of a leveling agent, bacteriostat, water
evaporation retardant, coupling agent, plasticizer and anti corrosion agent. In addition to
this, lauryl alcohol ethoxylate which is a derivative of dodecanol can be used for silicon
and wax emulsification, in colorants manufacturing and electroplating industry. Out of all
these applications, dodecanol has widespread application in the surfactants market.
Besides imparting fragrance, dodecanol also acts as a carrier, thickener and foam
controller. These properties make it an excellent and irreplaceable ingredient for
