Surfactant is a term derived from contraction of the terms ‘Surface Active Agents’. These are a group of amphiphilic organic compounds which help to lower the surface tension of a liquid or interfacial tension between two liquids. These usually act as a detergents or wetting agents or emulsifiers or foaming agents. The wetting and penetration effect, emulsification, dispersion, foaming, detergency, conditioning, and substantivity are some of the important properties of surfactants due to which these are widely used across different industries. The report describes about global surfactant market based on the geography, product types, substrate type, and application of surfactants. The report covers qualitative aspect of surfactants and detailed volume (thousand tons) and value ($million) forecasts (2010-2017) of surfactants.

The surfactant market is derived by studying consumption trends across the regions such as Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, and Rest of World (ROW). Europe is estimated to be the largest consumer of surfactants, followed by North America and Asia-Pacific with an estimation that the later would rise to be the second largest surfactant consumer in next five years, replacing North America. The report also covers the surfactant consumption and revenue trends by their product type (based on their charge) like anionic, non-ionic, cationic, and amphoteric; where anionic surfactants are estimated to reveal largest consumption across the globe. The surfactant consumption by their substrate type (synthetic/petrochemical and bio-based/natural/renewable) is also included in this study of global surfactant market. In addition to the aforesaid segments, the report describes about the applications in which surfactants are majorly consumed. The applications covered are: soap/detergents, personal care, textile, I&I cleaning, elastomers & plastics, oilfield chemicals, food, pharmaceuticals, crop protection, and other applications such as paints and coatings, pulp and paper industries. The price trends of the surfactant have been analyzed from annual reports of major players.

The drivers, restraints, and opportunities are identified for the surfactants market based on synthetic and bio-based surfactants categories. The synthetic surfactants have drivers such as easy availability, low price, and broadened application areas, whereas drivers for bio-based surfactants are their ecological benefits, wide range of substrates available, increasing awareness towards eco-friendly products. Synthetic surfactant is a matured market and the restraints for this market are volatile petroleum prices and environmental concerns. On the contrary, bio-based surfactant market is in its initial stages of growth, and the restraints identified in the market are technical constraints, their prices when compared to synthetic surfactants, and unskilled workforces. The opportunity for synthetic surfactants is its use in the treatment of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome, whereas the opportunities for bio-based surfactants are cited in the utilization of industrial and agricultural wastes, and usage of biosurfactants in unconventional markets.

The overall surfactants market is fragmented and no clear global market leader has emerged. However, few major players include AkzoNobel N.V. (The Netherlands), BASF SE (Germany), Henkel (Germany), P&G Chemicals (U.S.), Stepan Company (U.S.), and The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.).

Various primary and secondary data sources such as industry expert interviews, data from research institutes and industrial majors, encyclopedia, directories, and databases are used to identify and collect information useful for this extensive commercial study of global surfactant market.

Due to the adsorption property which helps to stabilize the rapidly formed bubbles during foaming, emulsification or coating processes, surface reducing properties, flocculation, biocide nature, etc. the surfactants are widely preferred chemicals in the specialty chemical industry. Also, as a result of elasticity and viscosity of the surfactant layer which gives the stability to foam or emulsion, surfactants have gained popularity in different application segments. The global surfactant industry could roughly be divided into synthetic and bio-based surfactants based on their substrates. The global surfactant industry is expected to grow at the promising rate. Also, currently, the synthetic surfactants are more popular all over the globe, and it is estimated that their consumption would show a steady growth in recent future. However, the bio-based surfactants market, which is still in its early stages, would grow at the potential growth rate which would be higher than the growth rate of the synthetic surfactants. This growth could be articulated with the facts like increasing awareness towards environmental factors, volatile petroleum prices, regulatory constraints which would get more stringent in future, availability of wide variety of substrates required for the synthesis of bio-based surfactants, etc.

The synthetic surfactants are traditionally produced from petroleum based substrates and are widely used in different application segments like detergents and cleaners, auxiliaries for textiles, personal care, I&I cleaning, paints and coatings, etc. However, bio-based surfactants are synthesized from renewable substrates with green chemical processes and posses the same chemical properties as that of synthetic surfactants. Hence; there is increase in the consumption of bio-based surfactants due to the facts such as use of renewable raw materials, high cost of petroleum products, and environmental sustainability. Also, in addition to the above mentioned segments, the bio-based surfactants can also be consumed in the other segments such as cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, food industry, agriculture, petroleum industry, and environmental remediation.

The future consumption of bio-based surfactants would depend upon the R&D studies which would give better substrates and green chemical processes to synthesize and commercialize the bio-based surfactants, their price when compared to synthetic surfactants, the commercially feasible processes to increase the yield from biosurfactants, etc. The trend for bio-based surfactants for above mentioned application segments is estimated to be highest in Asia-Pacific region due to increasing awareness of people towards biological products and increasing prices of petroleum products. The European and North America regions are expected to show a normal growth as they are still emerging out of the financial crisis.
