Based on application, the LAB market can be broadly segmented into Linear Alkylbenzene Sulfonate (LAS) and other applications. A major portion of the global LAB production is employed for the production of LAS. LAS applications have been further segmented on the basis of the end user applications namely heavy-duty laundry liquids, light-duty dishwashing liquids, and laundry powders, industrial and household cleaners. Heavy-duty laundry liquids mainly employed for commercial laundry purposes and are the most dominant application segment for LAS. The demand for household cleaners is expected to exhibit the fastest growth rate amongst all the application segments. Other niche applications of LAB include ink solvents, agricultural herbicides, wetting agents, emulsion polymerization, electric cable oil, and the paint industry.

Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, and Rest of the World (ROW) are the geographical regions analyzed in this report. The forecasts and estimates of each application segment of LAB in these geographical regions have been provided for the period 2012 to 2018.

The report also provides an in-depth analysis of revenue and market share of major players such as CEPSA Quimica, Unggul Indah Cahaya, Jin Tung Petrochemicals, Huntsman Performance Products, Fushun Petrochemicals, ISU Chemical and others. The report also includes Porter’s five force model to analyze the degree of competition in the industry and the various other factors influencing growth of the LAB industry.
