Global Alkyl Polyglycoside Average Price From About 3724 USD/MT In 2013 To 3454 USD/MT In 2018
Monday, 26 Nov, 2018
Europe is the largest market of alkyl polyglycoside, which occupies 39.29 percent of global alkyl polyglycoside market share in 2017. It is followed by North America, which has around 24.16 percent of the global total industry. Other main regions which take important part in this industry include Japan, China and Rest of Asia.
The global alkyl polyglycoside average price in 2013-2018 is in the first-decline and later- rising trend, from about 3724 USD/MT in 2013 to 3454 USD/MT in 2018. In 2018, the global alkyl polyglycoside production will reach 207.79 K MT from 132.67 K MT in 2013.
Alkyl polyglycoside has several types, which include starch, glucose and fatty alcohol, etc. With surfactivity effect in application process of alkyl polyglycoside, the downstream application industries will need more alkyl polyglycoside products. So, alkyl polyglycoside has a huge market potential in the future.
Raw materials for alkyl polyglycosides are starch, glucose and fatty alcohol, on the global market, supply of raw materials is very full, but the upstream raw material prices have reduced, directly led to the price decline of the product.
Despite the presence of competition problems, due to the global recovery trend is clear, investors are still optimistic about this area; the future will still have more new investment enter the field.
Although sales of alkyl polyglycosides brought a lot of opportunities, the study group recommends the new entrants just having money but without brand or marketing channels advantage and downstream support do not to enter into the alkyl polyglycosides field.
