Lauric Acid Market to Surge to US$ 683.9 Million by 2032, Driven by Textile Industry Demand and Organic Product Trends

Lauric Acid

The global lauric acid industry was worth US$ 165.1 Million in the year 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 683.9 Million at a CAGR of 13.4% between 2022 and 2032.

Lauric acid comes across as a saturated fatty acid that occurs in several vegetable fats like coconut oil and palm kernel. It’s a white, powdery solid smelling like bay oil or soap. It generally falls in the category of medium-chain fatty acids and is inclusive of a 12-carbon atom chain. Lauric acid, in comparison with fatty acids that are commonly available, is cost-effective and makes way for a longer shelf life as far as end-products are concerned.

Skincare and hair care products are being increasingly used these days in the wake of rising awareness regarding the same. On top of that, the US FDA has listed this product under the GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) tag for personal care and cosmetics applications. Furthermore, higher demand for shower gels, shampoos, facial cleansers, and body washes is there to boost the demand for lauric acid. Along these lines, Wipro Consumer Care and Lighting, in July 2021, came up with a novel series of shower gels. The brands include Yardley, Santoor, Hygienix, and Aramusk.

At the same time, the fact that various home remedies are being adopted including curd, Indian soapberry, egg yolk, and Indian gooseberry for cleansing the hair. These factors are expected to restrain the lauric acid market in the near future.
