"Surfactants market expected to register a CAGR (Compound annual growth rate) of 5.40 percent"

The market size of surfactants is forecasted to reach ~$39.9B by 2021, recording a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.40 percent between 2016 and 2021. The increase of the surfactants market is primarily triggered by the increasing demand from the personal care and detergents segments. The market increase is also attributed to the growing use of surfactants in different other applications. India (IN) and China (CN) are noteworthy industries as these are two of the most important sectors for surfactants in the globe. Stringent regulations against the use of synthetic surfactants restrict the increase of the global surfactants market, as synthetic surfactants account for the main share. Whereas the key market players are gradually shifting to green and bio-based surfactants, the share of synthetic surfactants in the industry is still high.

"Bio-based surfactants segment is anticipated to witness high rise during the outlook period"

The bio-based surfactants segment is anticipated to witness high increase in the global surfactants market during the estimate period according to their rising consumption in different end-use products including shampoos, soaps, detergents, skin care products, ointments, and others. This growing demand is also favored by the increasing awareness among the consumers for eco-friendly and non-toxic products.

"Non-ionic surfactants to register the maximum growth rate in the surfactants market"

Surfactants are widely used in several end-use products including baby care products, face washes, conditioners, cleaners, and many similar personal care and industrial products. The industry demand for non-ionic surfactants is increasing quickly due to the benefits that they offer including non-sensitivity to water and higher flexibility during synthesis. The non-ionic surfactants developed in recent years are suitable for a wide range of applications in many end-use industries including textiles, detergents, personal care, healthcare, vehicle care, food & beverage, industrial & institutional cleaning, and others.

"APAC is forecasted to be the quickest increasing market during the outlook period"

Asia-Pac is the biggest and the quickest developing market for surfactants. The rise in economy, along the raised demand from the retail sector, drives the market of surfactants in the territory. Chemical industries are witnessing important rise in developing nations including India and China (CN) in this area, leading to the raised demand for surfactants.
