Fatty alcohols are biodegradable and can be used in the same way as petrochemicals can. They are also  less expensive alternative to petrochemicals. An increase in the supply of sourcing of raw materials in the form of oilseed is predicted to have a favorable influence on the production of fatty alcohols. As a result, broad possibilities for downstream applications are envisaged, increasing market penetration. sunflower oil, Soybean oil, safflower oil, tall oil, rapeseed oil, cattle tallow and palm oil, are all good sources of fatty alcohols.

The surge in its application in surfactant-based industries is the primary factor driving market development. Fatty alcohol is often used in soaps, detergents, personal care, and textiles because of its detergent and washing properties, particularly in the preparation and treatment of silk and wool. Fatty alcohol up to C18 is biodegradable, whereas surfactants make fine-grained dye pigments easier to utilize, lowering the cost. Demand for biodegradable and renewable goods is likely to be a significant driving force for the global fatty alcohol sector as petrochemical dependency declines. The worldwide chemical industry is concerned about the volatile pricing of petrochemical produced goods due to supply-demand mismatches, which has spurred this move to bio-based chemicals businesses. Concerns about the environmental impact of petrochemicals have spurred the adoption of bio-based, sustainable chemicals. Industry has switched its attention to the creation of biodegradable goods and base chemicals using bio-based raw materials in order to minimize dependency on petrochemicals and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, due to expanding population and disposable income, the region's personal care sector is projected to boost the market throughout the projection period.
