Increased preference of bio-based products to augment methyl ester sulfonate market

January 6, 2019 |

In California, methyl ester sulfonates (MES) extracted from coconut oil and palm oil is picking up pace with rise in unrefined petroleum costs, trailed by the rise in petrochemicals costs, according to TMR Research.

“MES is favored as it is gotten from an inexhaustible oleo-based raw material and offers great detergency, great biodegradability, and enhanced tolerance for calcium hardness,” according to TMR Research. “It likewise offers cost advantage over straight alkyl benzene right now utilized by cleanser makers. It offers great surfactant properties and is reasonable to be utilized in existing sulfonation plants.”

“Driving development in the global methyl ester sulfonate (MES) market is the rising inclination for natural products alongside the solid system support for eco-friendly items. Flimsiness in the costs of oil based surfactants is another factor slated to up the general interest of bio based surfactants, for example, methyl ester sulfonate sooner rather than later. The corrective business is at the front line of creating interest for methyl ester sulfonate because of the rising positions of various buyers expanding the choice of natural cosmetics over the chemical based ones.”
