US demand for cosmetic and toiletry chemicals will rise 4.9 percent yearly to $9.4 billion in 2016. Botanical extracts will lead gains based on their favorable natural profile, which many consumers perceive as being more healthful and beneficial than synthetic chemicals. Emollients and moisturizers will be the fastest growing chemicals by function.
This study analyzes the $7.4 billion US cosmetic and toiletry chemical industry. It presents historical demand data ( 2001, 2006, 2011) and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by product (e.g., surfactants, aroma chemicals and blends, oleochemicals, botanical extracts, polymers, fats, oils and waxes), function (e.g., specialty additives, emollients and moisturizers, cleansing agents and foamers, fragrances and flavors, processing aids) and market (e.g., skin care products, hair care products, personal soaps and body washes, perfumes, oral hygiene products).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 33 industry players, including BASF, Dow Chemical and Procter & Gamble.
