Vegetable based segment is expected to emerge as the most attractive feedstock for esterquats

Feedstock for the production of esterquats is tallow or vegetable-based palm oil. As esterquats are known for their high biodegradability, ecofriendly nature and can be easily hydrolysed, they are commonly preferred as cationic surfactants in applications, such as fabric softeners and hair conditioners, among other applications.

Thus, the rising demand for bio-based chemicals in developed regions is expected to act as a catalyst for the growth of the esterquats market during the forecast period. Hence, the demand for vegetable-based feedstock is expected to increase over the forecast period.
