Piroctone olamine, an ethanolamine salt of hydroxamic acid derivative named piroctone, is an antifungal agent. It is frequently used in anti-dandruff shampoos as a replacement for the compound zinc pyrithione. Piroctone olamine, when used in combination with other substances in shampoos, effectively reduced the dandruff levels and simultaneously provided hair conditioning. The fungus Malassezia globosa is responsible for causing dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis. The presence of this fungus results in scalp irritation and scalp starts shedding tiny flakes. In severe cases, inflammation, redness, and extremely itchy patches can occur. The anti-fungal properties of piroctone olamine aid in controlling the spread of Malassezia globosa. In addition to this, piroctone olamine also helps make hair smooth and silky, prevents hair fall, and boosts the hair growth.

In 2019, Asia Pacific held the largest share of the global piroctone olamine market. The APAC holds ample opportunities for the growth of piroctone olamine providers. APAC countries such as Australia, Japan, India, China, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, and Indonesia have large manufacturing industries. The manufacturing sector is rapidly adopting the innovative technologies and processes. Over the past few years, the manufacturing spending of the region has grown significantly and is further anticipated to grow at the significantly high pace. The significant development in the manufacturing sector generates a need for advanced solutions that increases the demand for piroctone olamine market. Rising foreign direct investments also lead to economic growth in the region. India, Japan, and China are amongst the major markets for piroctone olamine in the Asia Pacific region.

Rising Preference for Piroctone Olamine over Ketoconazole and Zinc Pyrithione

Dandruff, or pityriasis capitis, is a chronic scalp condition caused by fungus Malasseziaglobosa, and it is characterized by scaling, itching, or redness. Hence, shampoos comprising antifungal agents are preferably used to combat this condition. Traditionally, ketoconazole and zinc pyrithione are two identified compounds that are used in the formulation of anti-dandruff shampoos. With time, the use of piroctone olamine has become more prevalent. In several controlled clinical trials conducted by various researchers, piroctone olamine has been proven to be superior to ketoconazole and zinc pyrithione. A study undertaken by NCBI  compared these three ingredients and observed that the use of Piroctone olamine helps to reduce the hair fall by 16.5%, improves hair shaft diameter by 7.9%, and significantly decreases the production of sebum in the scalp.. In other study conducted by SpecKare, compared two shampoo types—one of with piroctone olamine (0.75%) mixed with salicylic acid (2%) and other including zinc pyrithione (1%) as active ingredient. The results of the study show that while ZPT (Zinc Pyrithione) reduced dandruff by 68.6%, and the active ingredient piroctone olamine reduced the dandruff problem by 81.7%. On the similar grounds, the use of piroctone olamine also outperformed climbazole. Additionally, piroctone olamine has been extensively in use in several personal care products for more than 30 years owing to its properties such as minimal toxicity, better solubility, and compounding characteristics. Hence, the greater demand for piroctone olamine than ketoconazole, climbazole, and zinc pyrithione  drives the market for the same.

Type Insights

Based on type, the piroctone olamine market is segmented into more than 99% and purity more than 98%. The purity: more than 99% segment led the piroctone olamine market in 2019 with a larger market share. 99% pure piroctone olamine is slightly soluble in water and oil. Further, it is freely soluble in 1–10% ethanol in water as well as in aqueous surfactant solutions. .  

Application Insights

Based on application, the piroctone olamine market is segmented into shampoo and hair care products, cosmetics, washing products. The shampoo and hair care products segment held the largest market share in 2019. The shampoo and hair care products segment led the piroctone olamine market with the largest share in 2019. Piroctone olamine penetrates the cell membrane of the fungi Malassezia globosa to interfere with their energy metabolism and oxygen uptake. This kills the fungi and clears up the infection, thereby lowering the dandruff, which otherwise causes hair loss and thinning. The compound is often compared to ketoconazole, which is a widely used ingredient in anti-dandruff products. However, piroctone olamine offers better results against dandruff and fungal infections.
