This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Cationic Surfactant Market is accounted for $1.11 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach $1.92 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period. The growth in research and development activities, wide use of cationic surfactants in consumer and industrial cleaning, and growing need for home care and personal care products are driving the market growth. However, the presence of substitutes over cationic surfactants may hamper the market growth.

Cationic surfactants are defined as surfactants having a positive charge at their hydrophilic ends. They are quaternary ammonia compounds. When cationic surfactants are mixed with anionic surfactants, the overall solution becomes neutral and is no longer be effective. The positive charge on cationic surfactants makes them useful in manufacturing anti-static products such as fabric softeners, personal care, and industrial cleaning products. These surfactants own a superior antimicrobial property, which makes them suitable to be used as antimicrobial agents in disinfectants.

Based on the application, detergent segment is going to have lucrative growth during the forecast period, due to their ability to dissolve grease, oils, and fats for cleaning, reduce the surface tension between water and the dirt on clothes, excellent cleaning properties, and the high growth of the textile industry in China and India will increase the consumption of detergents.
By geography, the Asia Pacific region is expected to have considerable market growth during the forecast period, owing to the higher prices of cationic surfactants in comparison, rising use of these surfactants in detergents, personal care, and textiles, and increase in the consumer base.
