According to new report published by Grand View Research, the global isostearic acid market is expected to reach $447.9 million by 2020. Rapidly expanding end-user industries is expected to be the key factor driving the global market over the forecast years.

According to the findings of a report published by Grand View Research, Inc.; the global isostearic acid market is predicted to reach at USD 447.9 million by 2020. Isostearic acid is a liquid fatty acid, which is produced by the reaction of a natural mineral catalyst with oleic acid. This acid has high odor, thermal, and oxidation stability and thus finds many uses in a wide range of applications such as textiles, chemical esters, packaging, personal care, and many others. It also possesses excellent ultraviolet (UV) resistant properties and thus is useful in various types of cosmetic products such as sunscreens, lip gloss, lipsticks, and several other personal care products including shower and bath gels, toilet soaps, and so on. Rapidly expanding end-user industries is expected to be the key factor driving the global market over the forecast years (from 2014 to 2020).

A rise in demand for various personal care products, especially in the Latin America and Asia Pacific regions, is predicted to contribute toward the growth of the global market over the forecast period. Moreover, high demand for this acid due to rapidly expanding food and chemical sectors across the globe is also estimated to augment the overall market expansion. In addition, demand for the products based on bio-ingredients has increased drastically as a result of the rising health concerns and awareness among consumers about the hazardous nature of the petrochemicals-based products. This factor is also anticipated to boost the global market for isostearic acid over the next few years.

On the other hand, high costs associated with isostearic acid, on account of its limited supply, is likely to have a negative impact on the market development. However, increased expenditure for research and development (R&D) to expand the production capacity of the plants producing isostearic acid and to commercialize the new manufacturing plants is anticipated to provide potential growth opportunities for the market players. Thus, opening up new manufacturing facilities may also aid the manufacturers in reducing prices of this acid in near future.

The global isostearic acid market is categorized as per application and region. On the basis of application, the market is categorized as personal care, chemical esters, lubricants and greases, and others. On the basis of geographies, the market segments include Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, and Rest of the World (RoW). The Europe regional market dominated the global market in 2013. Rising demand for cosmetics from various economies in the region such as United Kingdom, Italy, France, and Germany is predicted to remain the major factors driving expansion of the regional market.
