Overview of the global surfactants market

Surfactants are widely used owing to their essential properties of conditioning and detergency. Key application areas include oilfield chemicals, personal care, food, crop protection, soap and detergents, textile, cleaning, elastomers, plastics, pharmaceuticals, and in industries such as paper, pulp, and paints and coatings.

There are two main types of surfactants: synthetic-based and bio-based. The demand for bio-based surfactants has grown in recent years due to rising inclination towards the use of eco-friendly commodities. With increased development and commercialization of bio-surfactants, manufacturers will have a plethora of opportunities for growth. Lower cost and easier availability is projected to drive the demand for synthetic-based surfactants.

In contrast, volatile prices of major feedstock materials and increased cost of bio-based surfactants is estimated to curb the growth of the market.
