- The higher alcohols market has expanded rapidly in the past several years as new supply has come on-stream, expanding at a rate of more than 4.5%/year since 2005. This impressive performance has been the result of new supplies reaching markets after a similar massive addition of oleo-based alcohol capacity a decade ago. Supply is forecast to grow at twice the rate of demand between 2012 and 2015 with an expectation that the existing industry footprint will require some adjustment - Alcohol Ethoxylates, as both a surfactant and an intermediate for Alcohol Ethoxysulfates account for around 60% of the total detergent range alcohols produced. Purified ethylene oxide capacity expansions are not keeping up with the new oleo alcohol capacity, hindering the growth of Ethoxylated products in the short term - Demand for alcohol-based products in Asia has exhibited strong growth over the past few years, with new demand developing from the additional requirements of liquid laundry detergent products. Greater consumption of alcohols in personal care products continues to drive growth as well. While surplus alcohols are currently being exported to Western markets, trade barriers, duties and new technology could disrupt this trend
