Polysorbate-80, also abbreviated as PS80, is a fatty acid ester of polyoxyethylene sorbitan. Polysorbate 80’s chemical structure is distributed in a heterogeneous manner. It is generally used as a non-ionic surfactant in the preparation of biotherapeutic compounds to stabilize proteins against aggregation and prevent surface adsorption induced by stresses such as shear and agitation. It is broadly utilized in pharmaceuticals, food preparation, personal care, and cosmetics and beauty products such as baby lotions, cold creams, suntan lotions, and bath oils. Polysorbate 80 is also used in the production of ice cream because it helps to raise the melting points. Polysorbate 80 is used in the preparation of influenza vaccines. Bio-based products are in high demand in the global market. The growing awareness of bio-based products in various industries, such as cosmetics and personal care products, pharmaceuticals, and food and beverage, is driving the growth of the polysorbate 80 markets. Polysorbate 80 is soluble in water and alcohol, but it is insoluble in oils. Polysorbate is also known as a co-emulsifier, which is used as a dispersing agent and a viscosity modifier for various fragrance products. In the pharmaceutical industry, polysorbate 80 is used as a solubilizing agent and common excipient. It is used in the production of medical preparations and as an excipient in tablets. In the cosmetic industry, polysorbate 80 is used in the manufacture of cold creams, suntan lotions, bath oils, and baby lotions, among others. The cosmetics and personal care industry is expected to grow rapidly due to increased consumer awareness of skin care products and their use in the global market. Hence, the high demand for polysorbate 80 from the cosmetic and personal care industries is expected to fuel the growth of the global polysorbate 80 market in the near future. Other applications, such as food and beverages and pharmaceuticals, are also expected to boost market demand for polysorbate 80 during the forecast period.
Polysorbate 80 has several properties that are used in various end-use industries. Growing demand for polysorbate 80 from a wide range of end-use industries is another factor boosting the growth of the global polysorbate 80 markets. Based on the extraction sources, polysorbate 80 is segmented into synthetic, animal, and plant sources. Polysorbate 80 is primarily extracted from plant sources, which include coconut oil and turkey-red oil. Overconsumption of these natural sources may lead to depletion, which may be a key restraint for the global market. Furthermore, rapid growth in the demand for PS80, especially due to rising demand for bio-based products, as well as increasing awareness regarding the quality of skin care products, are some other key aspects driving the growth of the global polysorbate 80 market.
