The article reports on linear alkyl benzene (LAB) and linear alkyl benzene sulfonates (LAS) growth in the U.S. Their growth is driven by a $4 billion-plus annual market for heavy-duty powder and liquid laundry detergents. At present, it is likely that the LAS market has bottomed out, thereby stabilizing LAB demand. With new LAB facilities in Asia coming online 2007 and 2008, the U.S. exports are vulnerable in Asia due to rising self-sufficiency and in Latin America due to competition from Asia.
