Phenoxyethanol is an oily and slightly sticky liquid with a faint rose-like smell. It is used as a preservative in various applications in pharmaceuticals, paints & coatings, dyes & inks, insect repellent, aquaculture, and metal working fluids. Phenoxyethanol is also used as an insect repellent or as an anesthetic in fish aquaculture. Aquaculture has the potential to become sustainable solution of fish production to cater to increasing demand for fish and fish products.
For instance, according to the report ‘The State of World Fisheries And Aquaculture’ published by Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) in 2018, the global apparent consumption of fish increased to around 189 million tons in 2019, from around 159 million tons in 2016, whereas worldwide edible fish consumption in 2030 is projected to be 20% higher than that in 2019. Therefore, increasing demand for fish and fish products is expected to fuel growth of the aquaculture industry, thereby propelling the demand for phenoxyethanol.
Increasing consumer spending on cosmetics and personal care products are upsurging digital engagement activities, and shifting of distribution channels to e-commerce platforms are some of the factors propelling growth of the home & personal care products industry. This scenario is expected to create higher revenues for the phenoxyethanol market over the forecast period.
Among regions, in 2021, Asia Pacific held dominant position in the phenoxyethanol market and contributed revenue share of 33.1% in the global market. This is attributed to significant growth of the cosmetics and personal care industry coupled with the expansion of pharmaceutical industry in the region.
According to India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), India cosmetics and personal care market was valued at US$ 9.65 Bn in 2019, and is expected to reach US$ 20.0 Bn by 2025, backed by increasing disposable income of the population and increasing awareness regarding aesthetic appeal. This is expected to propel demand for phenoxyethanol from the cosmetics and personal care industry over the forecast period.
