Synopsis of Surfactants Market:


Surfactants are compounds that are used to lower the interfacial tension between liquids, gases, and solids. These compounds also act as wetting agents, emulsifiers, foaming agents, detergents, and dispersants. Surfactants are organic compounds that contain hydrophilic and hydrophobic groups. These compounds are classified mainly into four type’s namely cationic surfactants, nonionic surfactants, anionic surfactants and amphoteric surfactants. The properties of surfactants such as wettability, emulsion, dispersion, and stabilization among others pave their way into many end-user industries. The growing demand from the end-user industries are major factor contributing to the growth of the market. The major end-user industries includes homecare and personal care, oil and gas, agriculture, paints & coatings and construction among others. Moreover, the growing demand for biosurfactants owing to the stringent government regulations is anticipated to be a major opportunity in the growth of the market.


Among the various product segments in surfactants market, the anionic surfactant is the leading segment of the market and is anticipated to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The anionic surfactant is expected to register a market share of above 27% during the forecast years. Moreover, the amphoteric surfactant segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment on account of its superior properties such as foam stabilization & foaming, detergency, biodegradability and conditioning among others.
