Published: Jan 2017 | Report Code: 58306-01-17

Surfactants are briefly defined as a material used to reduce surface tension between a liquid and a solid or between two liquids when used in very low concentrations. They are used in various end use applications such as home care, personal care, food processing, and oilfield chemicals among others.

The growth of the surfactants market is mainly triggered by the rising demand from the end use application such as personal care, home care and food processing among others. However, implementation of stringent regulations by government agencies is the major factor inhibiting the market growth. Investment in research and development to find new sources of raw materials offers huge market opportunities for the players present in this market.

Owing to rise in demand for soaps, detergents, and household cleaners, by application, home care accounted for the largest share of the market in 2015 and projected to maintain its market position over the next six years. However, personal care segment is projected to witness the highest growth rate over the forecast period of 2016 to 2023.

By type, anionic surfactants accounted for the major share of the market pie in 2015. Anionic surfactants are widely use in detergents and cleaners owing to advantageous product characteristics and projected to boost market growth. On the other hand, presence of better and cheaper substitutes, nonionic surfactants are projected to witness lower growth rate over the next six years. Amphoteric surfactants are projected to witness high demand on account of their various properties during the forecast period of 2016 to 2023.

Owing to large consumer base, by regions, Asia Pacific accounted for over 32.00% share of the market. Rise in demand from household and industrial applications along with rise in disposable income is the major factor attributing growth of the surfactants in this region. India, China and Indonesia are the major contributors towards this growth. Moreover, the retail sector is also getting organized in these countries which will boost demand for better quality consumer goods. Asia Pacific was followed by North America and Europe, both these economies are projected to witness moderate growth rate over the next six years owing to stagnant demand from end use applications.

The global surfactants market can be categorized on the basis of type as:

  • Cationic surfactants
  • Nonionic surfactants
  • Anionic surfactants
  • Amphoteric surfactants
  • Other surfactants

Surfactants Market

In 2015, majority of the share was accounted by anionic surfactants. Owing to its advantageous product characteristics anionic surfactants are witnessing high demand from cleaners and detergents segment and projected to maintain their market position over the next six years. Nonionic surfactants emerged as the second largest product segment with over 19.00% share of the market in 2015. They are projected to witness modest growth during the forecast period of 2016 to 2023 owing to availability of various substitutes with better properties. Cationic surfactants are expensive and have a smaller market share when compared to anionic and nonionic surfactants. Amphoteric surfactants due to its biodegradability, conditioning, and foaming & foam stabilization among other properties is projected to witness highest demand over the next six years. They are projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2016 to 2023 in terms of revenue. Other surfactants are projected to witness below average growth rate during the forecast period.

The global surfactants market can be categorized on the basis of application as:

  • Home Care
  • Personal Care
  • Industrial & Institutional Cleaners
  • Food Processing
  • Oilfield Chemicals
  • Agricultural Chemicals
  • Textiles
  • Emulsion Polymerization (Plastics)
  • Paints & Coatings
  • Construction
  • Others (Air fresheners, plant tissue culture, etc.)

Surfactants Market

On the basis of application, home care application accounted for over 40% share of the market in 2015. The rise in demand for detergents, soaps and household cleaners is the major factor triggering growth of this application. These products are extensively used for household and industrial purposes. In addition, rising demand for more efficient and advanced detergents, household cleaners and soaps, the demand for surfactants from this application has increased.

On the other hand, personal care application is anticipated to witness the highest growth over the forecast period of 2016 to 2023. The demand for surfactants is witnessing growth in personal care application owing to rise in use of cosmetics, skincare, hair care, baby care, and others products. Food processing application is projected to witness second fastest growth rate during the forecast period of 2016 to 2023.

However, textiles and other application segment is anticipated witness the slowest growth rate over the forecast period of 2016 to 2023.

On the basis of geography, the global surfactants market is segmented as per following regions and countries
