Key Insight of Surfactants Market

Asia Pacific to account for largest market size during the forecast period

Asia Pacific is expected to have the largest market share in the surfactants market. Key factors favouring the growth of the surfactants market in Asia Pacific include that the growth can be attributed to the rising need for personal care and home care products from growing countries like Japan, India, and China. Economic growth has led to an advancement in the way of living of customers, generating increased demand for personal care products like shaving cream, shampoo, and hand wash. Lower manufacturing and labor costs in these rising economies drive many industry players towards the APAC region to gain global existence and growth. China is the primary customer and net importer of nonionic products, resulting in the region’s market development.

Anionic Surfactants Segment Accounted for the Largest Market Share of 18.2% in 2022

The type segment is divided into silicone surfactants, cationic surfactants, non-ionic surfactants, anionic surfactants, amphoteric surfactants, and others. The anionic surfactants segment dominated the market, with a market share of around 18.2% in 2022. Anionic surfactants belong to the class of surface-active substance, in which the surfactant macromolecule stays negatively charged. It permits it to connect to particles and contaminants stays in the liquid. Anionic surfactants hold about around the maximum percentage of the surfactants market. A rising focus on environmental rules it is predicted to boost the need for anionic surfactants.

Household segment is anticipated to dominate the market by 10.4% in 2022

The application segment is divided into food processing, household, soaps and detergents, personal care, industry and institutional cleaning, agricultural chemicals, oilfield chemicals, lubricants and fuel additives, emulsion polymerization, textile processing, and others. The household segment dominated the market, with a market share of around 10.4% in 2022. Household is anticipated to notice increased growth as in comparison to other segments. Due to growing demand from the home care segment can be recognized as the increasing usage of surfactant in soaps, household cleaners, and detergents. The surfactants are also utilized in different products like laundry and dishwashing soaps, dishwashing detergents, carpet cleaners, and floor cleaners.

Advancement in market

In April 2021 – Unilever partnered with India Glycols and LanzaTech to create a surfactant made from industrial carbon emissions. The creative shift in production uses biotechnologies and a recently configured supply chain between the three partners, that are working together for the first time. The new surfactant will be operated in an OMO laundry capsule, which will establish in China on April 22nd, i.e. World Earth Day.

Market Dynamics

Drivers: Uses of Surfactants in The Home, Personal Care, And Cosmetics Industry

Surfactants used in personal care, home, and cosmetic formulations are free of sensitizers, irritants, and allergens. Conventional surfactants of the cationic, anionic, amphoteric, and nonionic types are used in these formulations. Except for the synthetic surfactants utilized in the preparation of numerous systems like creams, emulsions, suspensions, etc., various naturally occurring materials have been presented, and there is a trend in recent years to utilize such natural products more widely in the impression that they are safer for the type of uses. Different synthetic surfactants used in personal care, home, and cosmetic formulations are ether sulfates, sarcosinates, sulfate, carboxylates, sulfonates, quaternary amines, betaines, etc. The ethoxylated surfactants are possibly the most broadly used emulsifiers in these formulations.

Restraint: Toxicity of Surfactants and Associated Environmental Risks

Surfactants are the most complex emerging contaminants, constantly released into the environment via wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Surfactants include hydrophilic and hydrophobic and therefore are considered amphipathic molecules. Surfactants are used for industrial and domestic applications due to their unique physicochemical properties. Regardless, the continuation of the changed products in an environment is of significant problem to environmental sustainability and healthy ecosystems.

Opportunity: Rising Preference for natural Surfactants

Surfactants from natural, renewable sources, like plant-based oils, have fewer environmental effects than non-renewable ones. Scientists are seeking further applications for surfactants derived from natural sources with potential applications in personal care products, laundry detergents, and environmental bioremediation.
