Most fatty alcohols are found naturally as waxes such as esters with fatty acids and fatty alcohols. Marine mammals used it as biosonar lenses, and plants and insects in the form of waxes are used for thermal insulation. Vegetable oils are the usual sources of fatty alcohol and are widely used as raw material. Animal fats (tallow), especially whale oil, were also used as a source of fatty alcohol, but they are no longer used on a large scale. Tallows produce a fairly narrow range of alcohols, mostly C16-C18, chain lengths from plant sources are more variable (C6-C24), making it the ideal source. Higher alcohols (C20-C22) can be obtained from rapeseed oil or mustard seed oil. Medium cut alcohols are obtained from coconut oil (C12-C14) or palm kernel oil (C16-C18). Fatty alcohols can also be produced from petrochemical sources. The expansion of the cosmetics and personal care industry in emerging economies, with increased demand for high-end skin and hair care products, children’s beauty care products and color cosmetics , along with increasing disposable income are factors expected to drive the growth of the global fatty alcohol market. About 50% of the fatty alcohols used commercially are of natural origin, the rest being synthetic.

The fluctuating prices of raw materials essential for the production of fatty alcohol are the major constraint for the market as this affects the production of fatty alcohol and also affects its price depending on its requirement by various market segments. It also affects the supply chain from the supply of fatty alcohol to the necessary organization. It affects the overall market so much like personal care market, detergent market etc where it is used.
