The growing number of manufacturers of sodium cocoyl isethionate (SCI) renders the global market largely competitive, notes Transparency Market Research (TMR). However, the vendor landscape is increasingly favorable toward large chemical companies who possess technical expertise to produce compounds that are moisture free. The paucity of advanced manufacturing technologies in small-scale manufacturers may keep them away from the lucrative gains.
TMR observes that several prominent chemical manufacturers are actively engaged in research and development activities with the move toward wider commercialization of SCI-based products across the globe. Top players adopt merger and acquisition as the key strategy for consolidating their shares. This helps in bolstering their sales channel and boost their technical capacity for end-product formulation. Top players include AkzoNobel N.V., Galaxy Surfactants, Huanggang Yongan Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., BASF SE, Clariant International AG, and Innospec Inc.

The rising usage of SCI in numerous baby care products is accentuating the global market. The rising preference of plant-based ingredients over animal-based ones is fueling the demand for SCI as the surfactant is derived from coconut oil. In this regard, the trend toward the usage of sulfate-free and environmental-friendly ingredients in skin care products is also bolstering the uptake. The rising demand for sulfate-free shampoo is a case in point.
The rise in disposable incomes of populations in emerging economies is a key factor accentuating the market. The growing population of affluent middle class has led to the substantial demand for premium skin care products. This has bolstered the demand for SCI.
The substantial need for safe as well as effective personal care ingredients, in developed regions, is influencing the positive demand for SCI. The advent of advanced cleanser based on sodium cocoyl isethionate surfactant has opened large lucrative avenue for market players.
