Report Code: EMR100659

The surfactants market size is projected to reach USD 52.4 billion by 2027 from USD 42.1 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 4.5%. Rising bio-based product demand particularly in Europe and North America is expected to fuel the overall market over the forecast period. Consumer awareness along with government support towards bio-based product manufacturing and consumption is estimated to foster the industry growth.

Surfactants are mostly used to decrease the surface tension between any two liquids or a solid and a liquid in the form of emulsifiers, detergents, wetting agents, dispersants, or foaming agents. They find application in several end-use industries such as petroleum, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and cosmetics. Continuous development in the sectors is anticipated to benefit the industry over the next coming years.

Low raw material prices along with lesser production costs are projected to help penetration over the forecast period. Surfactants provide stability and viscosity to foam and emulsion. This is further predicted to drive the demand for the product from several end-user industries over the next seven years.

Price volatility owing to rising environmental concerns regarding surfactant toxicity and degradability along with fluctuating crude oil prices is predicted to hinder the market. Technological constraints resulting in problems related to commercial production of bio-surfactants is also anticipated to hinder the growth over the forecast period.

In addition, increasing awareness among consumers towards using eco-friendly products in matured economies including Europe and the U.S. is anticipated to drive the demand for biosurfactants. Also, various regulations imposed by many economies like the European Union have propelled industries to invest in bio-based technologies that are environmentally friendly.

The key market players in surfactants market include BASF SE (Germany), Nouryon (North Holland), Evonik Industries AG (Germany), Stepan Company (US), Solvay (Belgium), The Dow Chemical Company (US), Indorama Ventures Public Company Limited (Thailand), Clariant(Switzerland), Ashland Global Holdings Inc. (US), Kao Corporation (Japan), Lonza (Switzerland), and Croda International Plc (UK), among others

Analyst Commentary

Anionic surfactants led the surfactants market in 2020. This is owed to its low cost and ease of availability. In addition, it is used in a wide variety of applications. The growing awareness regarding cleaning and hygiene are other factors driving its demand. 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.

Home care application led the surfactants market in 2020. Surfactants are used various products such as dishwashing detergents, laundry detergents, laundry and dishwashing soaps, carpet cleaners, and floor cleaners, among others. They are also used in home care products to remove oil, dirt, and unwanted particles from fabrics, dishes, and other surfaces.

Segmentation

The global surfactants market is segmented based on type, application, and region. On the basis of type, the market is segmented into Anionic surfactants, Non-ionic surfactants, Cationic surfactants, Amphoteric surfactants.
