Introduction to Linear Alkylbenzene (LAB) Market
The global linear alkylbenzene (lab) market size reached US$ 4.22 Million Tons in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value of US$ 5.41 Million Tons by 2028 exhibiting a CAGR of 4.06% during 2023-2028.
Linear alkylbenzene (LAB) represents a transparent and odorless organic compound utilized as an intermediate in the production of surfactants and detergents. It is manufactured using various petrochemical products, such as n-paraffin, kerosene, and benzene, through aluminum trichloride (AlCl3) and hydrogen fluoride (HF) processes. LAB is widely used in producing household cleaners, agricultural herbicides, polymers, powder detergents, electric cable oils, and solvents for ink and paints. It is utilized as an emollient, moisturizing, degreasing, emulsifier, wetting, and de-coloring agent. LAB is a cost-effective, biodegradable compound that easily extracts oil and fatty acids from fabrics and textiles. In addition to this, it is also slightly soluble in water, chemically stable, and has a high flash point. As a result, LAB finds widespread applications across several sectors, including textile, paper, detergent, and polymer.
