Drivers & Restraints

Rising Adoption of Natural & Organic Ingredients by Cosmetics Firms to Aid Growth

The rising inclination of consumers towards natural personal care and cosmetics products is set to propel the glycerine market growth in the coming years. This is mainly occurring because of the increasing awareness programs among the masses regarding the harmful effects of chemical ingredients. Hence, multiple reputed cosmetic manufacturers, such as L’Oréal, P&G, Unilever, and Johnson & Johnson are extensively using natural and organic ingredients to cater to the high demand. However, as glycerine is obtained during the biodiesel manufacturing process as a by-product, refiners are facing challenges in terms of profit margins and production owing to the fluctuations in prices. It may hinder growth.

Personal Care Segment to Generate Largest Share Backed by Usage in Toothpaste & Soaps

Based on the application, the personal care segment generated 26.7% in terms of glycerine market share in 2019. This growth is attributable to the increasing usage in the production of shaving cream, toothpaste, soaps, hair care, and skincare products. The segment is anticipated to procure the largest share throughout the forthcoming years stoked by the ability of the product to provide conditioning and reduced viscosity.

Regional Analysis

Expansion of Personal Care Industry to Propel Growth in Asia Pacific

Geographically, Asia Pacific held USD 733.0 billion in terms of revenue on account of the presence of some of the top companies in Japan, India, Indonesia, and Malaysia. China is set to dominate the regional market because of the expansion of the chemical, food, and personal care industry in the country. The USP grade segment accounted for 49.5% share in China.

Europe, on the other hand, is a key producer of glycerol and biodiesel worldwide. The rising production of biodiesel stoked by the increasing demand from various European countries would accelerate growth. Besides, the high demand for glycerine from the personal care and chemical industries in the U.S. will drive growth in North America.

Competitive Landscape

Key Players Focus on Expanding Their Production Capacities to Intensify Competition

The market houses a large number of prominent glycerine manufacturers that are mainly focusing on expanding their production capacities to fulfill the high demand. Some of the others are using glycerine in the manufacturing of hand sanitizers to tackle the growing demand amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Below are the two latest industry developments:

  • July 2020: Versalis, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Eni started producing a new range of liquid hand disinfectants to meet the rising demand amid the COVID-19 pandemic. It will be marketed under the name ‘Invix.’ It was developed on the basis of the World Health Organization’s formulation. It contains glycerine as an emollient.

  • September 2019: Emery Oleochemicals announced its investment in its Technical Development Center (TDC) in Germany to cater to the increasing demand. Every product is tested here. Also, the beneficial effect of additives is improved and adjusted. This new investment will strengthen the company’s position in the market.
