Increasing demand of eco-friendly (bio-based) surfactants, specifically from European
and North American regions is driving the global surfactants market. Regulations and
non-toxicity are the main factors favoring the use of bio-based surfactants.

Currently, Asia-Pacific dominates the global surfactants market, followed by North
America and then Europe. Asia-Pacific is also anticipated to have highest growth rate
during next five years. This is owing to the growth in related segment such as personal
care, soap/detergent, oilfield chemical, food, pharmaceutical etc. in Asia-Pacific. North
America is the second-largest consumer of surfactants. The Middle East & Africa is
estimated to witness growth rate, higher than global average, during 2014 to 2019. The
market in this region is experiencing increased demand in several applications of

Surfactants market is projected to reach 22,802.1 KT (Kilotons), in terms of
consumption, and $40,286.3 million in terms of value, by 2019.

Inquiry Before

Synthetic/chemical based surfactants still hold the largest share. However, due to
stringent regulations, bio-based surfactants will grow at a higher CAGR. Bio-based
surfactants are priced higher than synthetic surfactants because of the expensive raw
materials. Considering existing research and developments taking place in the industry,
prices are estimated to come down.

Majorly, bio-based surfactants are non-ionic or amphoteric. At present, anionic
surfactants captures the larger share of surfactants market. However, due to higher growth
of bio-based surfactants, and eco-friendly and less toxic nature of non-ionic surfactants,
non-ionic surfactants will have higher growth rate.

“Soap/detergent is the topmost application segment in the surfactants market”

Soap/detergent application segment takes the topmost position in the surfactants
market with more than 46% share in terms of volume and value. The fastest growth rate
during next five years in surfactants market is expected to come from elastomers and
plastics applications, where surfactants are used in emulsion polymerization. In oilfield
chemicals surfactants market, North America will lose it dominance to Asia-Pacific due to
increased off-shore exploration activities and expected commercial production of shale gas
by China, which has largest shale gas reserves.

Shale gas production will lead to more availability of raw material for synthetic
surfactants. This will further reduce the price of synthetic surfactants. This will drive
the surfactants market mainly in Asia-Pacific and RoW due to less stringent regulations in
the regions.
