Surfactants Global Market Outlook - Trends, Forecast, and Opportunity Assessment (2014-2022)

Surfactants Global Market Outlook - Trends, Forecast, and Opportunity Assessment (2014-2022)

  • Published: November 2015
  • ID: SMRC15317

The Global Surfactants market accounted for $29.3 billion in 2014 and is expected to reach $47.53 billion by 2022 growing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 6.23% during the forecast period 2014 to 2022. Due to new investments and upcoming projects in emerging economies such as China, India, and Brazil, the Asia Pacific region is anticipated to have considerable growth in the future. Regulations and non-toxicity are the main factors contributing to the usage of bio-based surfactants in these regions. Due to the expensive raw materials, Bio-based surfactants are more costly compared to synthetic surfactants.

The anionic surfactants segment dominated the global market, in terms of volume around 7,500 KT in 2014, followed by the non-anionic surfactants, the volume of which was recorded at 6,400 KT. The amphoteric surfactants segment has a share around 7% of the global market in 2014 and is projected to have highest growth rate during the forecast period. Synthetic surfactants of substrate types hold the major share in the surfactants market, as of 2014. However, due to strict regulations, bio-based surfactants are expected to grow at a highest CAGR in the future. The soap/detergent application segment holds the largest market share globally, having accounted for around 50% of the global market, in terms of both volume and value.

The elastomers and plastics application segment is anticipated to have highest CAGR during the analysis period. Asia-Pacific is also expected to grow at the highest growth rate owing to the growth in segments such as personal care, oilfield chemical, pharmaceuticals, etc. The second largest consumer of surfactants is North America followed by Europe. The Middle East & Africa market is estimated to have significant growth during the forecast period.

The key players in the market include Air Products and Chemicals Inc, Dupont EI DE Nemours & Co., Clariant AG, BASF SE, The Dow Chemical Company, Henkel AG & Co. KGAA, Evonik Industries AG, Akzonobel N.V., KAO Corporation, and Huntsman Corporation.
