Report Scope & Overview:
The Oleochemicals Market size was valued at 23.28 USD billion in 2022 and is expected to grow to 41.82 USD billion by 2030 and grow at a CAGR of 7.6% over the forecast period of 2023-2030.
Oleochemicals are mainly derived from natural fats and oils. It is the form of chemical compound that is used as a raw material or supplemental material in various industries. Oleochemicals can also be used as a substitute for petrochemicals (petroleum-based products). The replacement of petrochemicals with oleochemicals has begun in the late 1970s. This switching of chemical compounds is mainly due to the rise in prices of crude oil and the affordability of plant-based lauric oil which is extracted from the palm kernels. Generally, oleochemicals are produced by various chemical and enzymatic processes. These processes include hydrolysis (alcohol-based or water-based), hydrogenation, etc.
Oleochemicals are used as an additive in a variety of industries such as surfactants, cosmetics, coatings, plasticizers, lubricants, detergents, plastics, textiles, etc. The most common use of oleochemicals is the production of biodiesel. Oleochemicals are environmentally friendly as they are biodegradable, natural, green, renewable, organic, safe, and have little toxicity. Oleochemicals are also used in the production of sanitizers which are used to disinfect food contact surfaces. The major oleochemicals are fatty acids which are derived from vegetable and animal fats and oil.
Rising demand for biodegradable products
Increasing demand for oleochemicals from various end-use industry
Easily available raw material for the production of oleochemicals
Rising demand for green chemicals
Stringent environmental regulations imposed by the government on the use of non-renewable resources and petroleum-based products allow oleochemicals to enter the market and replace currently used petroleum-based products boosting the oleochemicals market rapidly. Moreover, increasing demand for environment-friendly biodegradable, organic, natural, and green products further drives the oleochemical market. This biobased product can also help to reduce pollution.
Voltaic Organic Compound generation during pre-treatment of glycerin
Glycerin is the product of oleochemicals that is used in applications ranging from food to cosmetics. During the manufacturing of glycerin, VOC is produced which is harmful to human organs such as the throat, eyes, and nose. In addition, vapors of Voltaic Organic Compounds can cause nausea, damage to the kidney and liver, and damage CNS permanently. All these factors can hamper the growth of the oleochemical market.
Stringent regulation imposed by the government on using petroleum-based products
Fluctuating raw material prices of oleochemicals
Impact of COVID-19
During the COVID-19 pandemic, The Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC) has predicted a significant increase in the demand for oleochemicals due to their versatile applications in cleaning agents, sanitizers, and disinfectants. This prediction has proven to be accurate, as the rapid spread of COVID-19 has led to a surge in demand for oleochemicals to produce a variety of products that help to curb the spread of the virus. But local supply constraints, labor shortages, and stringent regulations imposed by the government impacted the oleochemical market at a certain level.
The decreased production of biodiesel during this pandemic further decreases the demand for oleochemicals as they are used in the production of biodiesel.
Impact of Russia-Ukraine War:
The Russian invasion of Ukraine has affected the oleochemical market significantly. The war has disrupted the supply chain of oleochemicals, as Ukraine is a major producer of sunflower oil, a key raw material used in the production of oleochemicals. The conflict has also led to a decrease in demand for oleochemicals, as the economic instability in the region has resulted in a decrease in consumer spending.
Impact of Recession:
The downturn of the economy has impacted the oleochemicals market significantly. The market has experienced a decline in sales, production, and profitability due to the recession. The recession has caused a decrease in consumer spending, which has led to a decrease in demand for products that contain oleochemicals. This has resulted in a decrease in sales for companies that produce oleochemicals. Additionally, the recession has caused a decrease in production as companies have had to cut back on their operations due to decreased demand.
The profitability of the oleochemicals market has also been affected by the recession. Companies have had to reduce their prices in order to remain competitive, which has resulted in a decrease in profit margins. Additionally, the recession has caused companies to incur additional costs, such as increased debt and higher interest rates, which have further impacted profitability.

This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.
Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.
The 5 steps process:
Step 1: Secondary Research:
Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.
Step 2: Primary Research
When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data. This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.
We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.
Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.
This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.
Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.
Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.
Step 3: Data Bank Validation
Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.
Step 4: QA/QC Process
After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.
Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:
This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
