The global surfactant market is projected to reach USD 44.6 billion by the end of 2021, growing with a CAGR of 5.6% from 2017 to 2023. Surfactants are organic compounds with presence of both hydrophobic and hydrophilic group. The wetting and penetration effect, emulsification, dispersion, foaming, detergency, conditioning, and substantively are some of the important properties of surfactants. The key drivers responsible for growth of the surfactants market include growing end user industries and improving lifestyles in developing economies.
Easy availability, low price, and broadened application areas are few other factors fuelling the demand for surfactants worldwide. Surfactants were mainly used in the detergent and soap industries; however, this trend is changing, and they are currently used in several other industries such as fabric industry uses this as a softener, paper industry to de-ink the recycled paper, agrochemical industry to manufacture herbicides and insecticides, the cosmetic industry in shampoo, hair conditioners and toothpastes, as firefighting agent, in the oil industry, and others.
The report segments the global surfactant market by product type, substrate type, application and region. The product types include anionic surfactants, non-anionic surfactants, cationic surfactants and amphoteric surfactants. The applications include soap industry, personal care industry, textile industry, industry and institutional cleaning, elastomers and plastics industry, oilfield chemicals, crop protection, food industry and others. The substrate types include synthetic surfactants and bio-based surfactants.
