The global fluorosurfactants market is projected to reach USD 667.4 Million by 2021, at a CAGR of 9.8% from 2016 to 2021. Fluorosurfactants are used in very low concentration to increase the wetting, leveling, and oil repellency in applications such as paints & coatings, waxes, polishes, cleaners, films, and adhesives. Better performance of fluorosurfactants in these applications as compared to other surfactants and the use of short-chain fluorosurfactants in developed economies are driving the fluorosurfactants market globally.

The paints & coatings segment is estimated to be the largest application segment of the fluorosurfactants market. The growing use of fluorosurfactants as wetting & leveling agents drives the market for fluorosurfactants in this application. Stringent regulations on VOC emissions by regulatory bodies, such as EPA (U.S.) and REACH (Europe), are driving the market for short-chain fluorosurfactants.

By type, the anionic segment of the fluorosurfactants market is estimated to be the largest and is also projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Anionic fluorosurfactants exhibit excellent wettability and permeability, besides providing better leveling. These fluorosurfactants are widely preferred in paints & coatings application. The growing demand for paints & coatings is expected to increase the demand for anionic fluorosurfactants globally.

Paints & coatings and specialty detergents are estimated to be the largest application segments of the fluorosurfactants market. The growing use of fluorosurfactants in paints & coatings as wetting and leveling agents is expected to drive the paints & coatings segment of the fluorosurfactants market. Fluorosurfactants are used in specialty detergents as they help improve the penetration of cleaners on surfaces.

Fluorosurfactants Market

The growth of the building & construction industry has led to an increase in demand for fluorosurfactants. In 2015, North America accounted for the largest share of the global fluorosurfactants market, in terms of volume. Owing to the geographical shift of the fluorosurfactants market towards developing economies, Asia-Pacific is expected to outgrow the North American market, in terms of volume. In terms of value, Europe accounted for the largest share of the global fluorosurfactants market and the trend is estimated to continue throughout the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific is also projected to be the fastest-growing market for fluorosurfactants. The shift of the fluorosurfactants market towards emerging economies due to stringent regulations on VOC emissions in developed economies is driving the growth of the fluorosurfactants in Asia-Pacific region.

Short-chain fluorosurfactants are considered a potential eco-friendly alternative to the conventionally used long chain fluorosurfactants, which, in turn, leads to the growth of the fluorosurfactants market. However, the higher price of fluorosurfactants as compared to other surfactants, and stringent regulations over VOC emissions in developed economies are restraining the growth of the fluorosurfactants market.

The Chemours Company is one of the leading players in the fluorosurfactants market. The company mainly focuses on strengthening its global distribution channel. For this, the company had entered into an agreement with ChemPoint.com Inc. for the North American region, and with Alfa Chemicals Ltd. for the European region. The company also focuses on tapping the market through new product launches. It has a wide portfolio of products to cater to the demand of various applications of fluorosurfactants.
