Surfactants Market

Surfactants Market Overview:

Surfactants are compounds that are used to lower the interfacial tension between liquids, gases, and solids. These compounds also act as wetting agents, emulsifiers, foaming agents, detergents, and dispersants. Surfactants are organic compounds that contain hydrophilic and hydrophobic groups. These compounds are classified mainly into four type’s namely cationic surfactants, non-ionic surfactants, anionic surfactants and amphoteric surfactants. The properties of surfactants such as wettability, emulsion, dispersion, and stabilization among others pave their way into many end-user industries. The growing demand from the end-user industries are major factor contributing to the growth of the market. The major end-user industries include homecare and personal care, oil and gas, agriculture, paints & coatings and construction among others. Moreover, the growing demand for biosurfactants owing to the stringent government regulations is anticipated to be a major opportunity in the growth of the market.

Surfactants are widely used in the applications such as paints and coatings, textiles, institutional cleaners, food processing and agricultural chemicals among others.
