The growing awareness of Millennials regarding their skin care has accelerated the demand for premium personal care products. Therefore, the major manufacturers of isohexadecane are collaborating with local and regional players in the personal care and cosmetics industry to increase their revenues.

However, with a growing preference for natural and organic personal care products, the uptake of isohexadecane is expected to decline over the years. This, in turn, should hamper sales.

According to Fact.MR, the market grew slowly at 3% CAGR between 2014 and 2019. The demand is expected to increase with the growing presence of local players in economies such as India, Vietnam, and Brazil surges.
