Sodium palmitate is a sodium salt of palmitic acid used as a cleaner in personal care as well as in laundry and dishwashing products. However, it is commercially produce from saponification of palm oil. It is used as an emulsifying agent in various personal care and other products including dishwashing and laundry products. The global sodium palmitate market is growing at a significant growth over the forecast period, owing to rapid growth of surface active agents in personal care industry. The Asia-Pacific sodium palmitate market accounts for relatively high revenue share, followed by North America sodium palmitate market, attributed rapid growth of pharmaceutical as well as personal care market.
Global Sodium Palmitate Market: Dynamics
Microeconomic factors factor driving the global sodium palmitate market include growing personal care and pharmaceutical industry and high demand for emulsifying agents in both the industry particularly in regions such as North America, Asia-Pacific, and Europe. However, health hazards of palmitic acid including the risk of cardiovascular infraction may lead to restraining the global sodium palmitate market. Sodium palmitate use in soap will clean the skin but may dry it out which is also another important factor for restraining the global sodium palmitate market. Other side effects of sodium palmitate on human body including vomiting, diarrhoea, irritation to eye, skin and mucosal membrane, and respiratory distress and upper airway irritation most often in young children also expected to create an adverse impact on the global sodium palmitate market. The company manufacturing sodium palmitate products has a significant opportunity in regions such as North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, attributed to high demand for personal care products across the regions over the forecast period. Companies have a significant opportunity in the global sodium palmitate market through collaboration with end-users i.e. personal care product manufacturers.
Global Sodium Palmitate Market: Segmentation
The global sodium palmitate market is segmented by end-use industry, application, and by region. The personal care industry segment is expected to contribute to the significant revenue share with a relatively high growth rate over the forecast period, owing to high demand for sodium palmitate in soap production. Pharmaceutical segment is followed by personal care industry in the global sodium palmitate market. By application segment, emulsifying segment is expected to contribute for relatively high revenue share in the global sodium palmitate market, attributed to significant demand for emulsifying agent in personal care as well as pharmaceutical products.
