Market Driver

Rapid Growth in Urban Areas to Generate Several Opportunities

One of the most prominent forces propelling the esterquats market growth is the rapid expansion of urban areas. As per recent data from the United Nations (UN), urban sprawls will house nearly 70% of the global population by 2050, with 90% of this rise expected to occur in Asian and African countries. The UN predicts that India, China, and Nigeria alone would account for 35% of this growth in urban areas. Personal and home care products, where esterquats are primarily utilized, experience surging demand and sales in cities and large towns as populations in these spaces have higher disposable incomes and easier access to such products. More importantly, awareness about the harmful effects of chemical-infused products on the environment and human health is steadily spreading among urban dwellers. As a result, there is now a growing inclination towards household products that can be disposed of in an eco-friendly, which is creating new avenues for this market to expand.

Regional Insights

Rising Consumption of Personal Care Items to Accelerate Growth in Asia Pacific

Among regions, Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the esterquats market share in the foreseeable future owing to increasing demand and consumption of different personal care items in the region. Additionally, consumers in the region are becoming more aware of the ingredients used for making such items and are thus preferring more environment-friendly products.

In North America, the prospects for the market appear bright on account of growing demand for detergents containing fabric softeners, especially distilled liquid fabric softeners. The market in Europe, on the other hand, is expected to be driven by the stringent regulations imposed by the EU on manufacturing and use of non-biodegradable household products.
