Alkylphenol EthoxylateMarket Overview:
Alkylphenol ethoxylates are surfactants which have an emulsifying and dispersing action, so they have good wetting, penetration, washing , dispertion, solubilizing and emulsification characteristics. This makes them suitable for a very large variety of applications: they’ve been used for over 50 years in a wide variety of products. In the textile industry, they are used in detergents and as a scouring, coating or waterproofing agents, in printing pastes and adhesives, and in dyeing. The most important APEO or alkylphenol ethoxylates for the textile industry are NPEO (nonylphenol ethoxylates) and OPEO (octylphenol ethoxylates) due to their detergent properties, but there are a big family. About 90% of the produced APEO are in fact NPEO.
Alkylphenol EthoxylateMarket Outlook:
The most important alkylphenol ethoxylates(APE) for the textile industry are nonylphenol ethoxylate
(NPE) and octylphenol ethoxylates (OPE). It is because of the properties they possess. About 90% of The produced APE are NPE

Market Research and Market Trends of Alkylphenol Ethoxylate Market
- Many nonylphenol ethoxylate have been replaced in the last decade in the Netherlands because of the restricted use in non-industrial applications. The use of many nonylphenol ethoxylates has decreased by approx. 70%. Lower use will have led to lower nonylphenol and nonylphenol ethoxylates levels in environments and thus lowering the use of alkylphenol ethoxylate.
- The use of alkylphenol ethoxylate and sulfate analogs has started to decline in North America inspite of their aforementioned advantages. This is because of moving of household applications to industrial application in North America. Additionally because of the governmental pressure the use of alkylphenol ethoxylate is decreasing in North America
