The surface active agents market consist of sales of surface active agents and related services for usage in detergents, wetting agents, emulsifiers, foaming agents, and dispersants in order to lower the surface tension. Surface active agents are majorly used in industries such as pharmaceutical, oil & gas, food & beverage, agriculture and clothes.

The global surface active agents market is expected to grow from $60.15 billion in 2020 to $64.49 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.2%.The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $86.56 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 8%.

The surface active agents market covered in this report is segmented by type into non-ionic surfactants, anionic surfactants, amphoteric surfactants, cationic surfactants.

Increase in demand for surface active agents from various end user industries is driving the market. Surfactants in food industry are used as emulsifiers, which are important for the formation and stabilization of the food structure. Moreover, there is growing awareness of healthy food, which require bio-surfactants with high biodegradability and lower toxicity. According to a research study on versatility of surfactants in food industries in 2018, biocompatible, biodegradable and non-toxic emulsion based formulations of surfactants have great potential for food preparation and processing applications. Moreover, globally, 50% of food surfactants produced is used in bakery products, indicating the amount of surface active agentssagents required. The rising demand from end user drives the surface active agents market.

Strict regulations imposed by government agencies is hindering the market growth. Surfactants cause environmental and health issues, which compels regulatory bodies such as United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) to monitor the manufacturing units of surfactants to keep the toxicity levels at permissible. For instance, as per US Food & Drug Administration, CFR - Code of Federal Regulations Title 21, use of surfactant should not exceed 10 parts per million in the production of sodium chloride. An emulsifier should not exceed 0.1% of the finished frozen dessert for human consumption. Therefore, stringent policies on surfactants used in food industries hamper growth of the market.

Extra concentrated laundry detergents is becoming popular as it reduces water consumption. Companies are developing concentrated detergents which can save as much as 45 million gallons of water per year and also require less plastic for packaging and make transportation more energy-efficient. For example, Walmart’s goal is to cut 25% of the water from every dose of laundry detergent by 2018. For major companies manufacturing extra concentrated laundry detergents include Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Henkel AG & Company and Church & Dwight Co., Inc.

In 2018, Stepan company, an Illinois based company, completed the acquisition of surfactant production facility from BASF SE for an undisclosed amount. This acquisition will support Stepan Company's strategy to expand in Latin America. BASF SE is a German company that specializes in producing chemicals used in broad range of industries.
