Malaysia Oleochemicals Market to be Dominated by Food & Beverage Industry through 2028

Malaysia Oleochemicals Market is expected to grow in the forecast period 2024-2028 due to the growing demand from the personal care industry.

According to TechSci Research report, “Malaysia Oleochemicals Market- By Region, Competition Forecast and Opportunities, 2018-2028,” the Malaysia Oleochemicals Market is anticipated to grow at a substantial rate in the forecast period. A significant factor fueling the growth of Malaysia Oleochemicals Market is increasing demand from the food and beverage industry as it is produced by chemical and enzymatic reactions of vegetable oil and animal fat which are sustainable alternatives to petrochemicals products. Along with this specialty oleochemical derivatives are utilized in the food processing sector to process frozen foods, confectionery, and beverages. The food processing sector uses a variety of product derivatives, such as alcohol ethoxylates sulfates, sucrose esters, and glycerol esters. With the rise of health-conscious consumers, there has been a growing demand for natural and organic based products in Malaysia. Moreover, the growing demand for bio-based and sustainable chemicals owing to the concerns regarding the detrimental effects of synthetic chemicals on humans and the environment further enhance the growth of Malaysia Oleochemicals Market.

For instance, 
KL-Kepong Oleomas Sdn. Bhd. produces Greenbentin-DE/060 (MB) which is used in washing, and cleaning.

Furthermore, the market is being further stimulated by increasing demand from the personal and skin care industry, the pharmaceutical industry, and government initiatives to promote sustainable eco-friendly products.

However, the prices of these raw materials are subject to significant fluctuations due to various factors such as weather conditions, supply and demand, and government policies restraining market growth. Also, the production of these chemicals comes with environmental and health issues as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) are released during the glycerin processing and exposure to these VOCs harms human organs, including the throat, eyes, and nose which further slows down the market growth.
