Surface Active Agents Market

Proud Members Of

Surface-active agents are substances with the ability to adsorb to solid surfaces and fluid interfaces and act as multifunctional ingredients. Surface-active agents are used in detergents, wetting agents, emulsifiers, foaming agents, and dispersants in order to lower the surface tension.

The main product types of surface active agents market are non-ionic surfactants, anionic surfactants, amphoteric surfactants, and cationic surfactants. A cationic surfactant is a form of surfactant with a positive charge on its hydrophilic end. The substrates are synthetic and bio-based. The various applications involved are household detergent, personal care, industrial and institutional cleaners, food processing, oilfield chemicals, agricultural chemicals, textiles, plastics, paint and coating, adhesives, and other applications.

The global surface active agents market is segmented -

1) By Product Type: Non-Ionic Surfactants, Anionic Surfactants, Amphoteric Surfactants, Cationic Surfactants

2) By Substrate: Synthetic, Bio-Based

3) By Application: Household Detergent, Personal Care, Industrial & Institutional Cleaner, Food Processing, Oilfield Chemical, Agricultural Chemical, Textile, Plastic, Paint & Coating, Adhesive and Other Applications

The global surface active agents market size will grow from $28.85 billion in 2022 to $30.35 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.2%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, a surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, causing inflation across goods and services and affecting many markets across the globe. The market size of global surface active agents is expected to grow from $37.94 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 5.7%.

An increase in demand for surface-active agents from various end-user industries is driving the market. Surfactants in the food industry are used as emulsifiers, which are important for the formation and stabilization of the food structure. Moreover, there is a growing awareness of healthy food, which requires bio-surfactants with high biodegradability and lower toxicity. According to a research study on biosurfactants, production, and application prospects in the food industry in 2020, among biosurfactant-producing microorganisms, some yeasts present no risks of toxicity or pathogenicity, making them ideal for use in food formulations. Moreover, globally, 50% of food surfactants produced are used in bakery products, indicating the number of surface-active agents required. The rising demand from end-users drives the surface active agents market.

Major players in the surface active agents market are BASF SE, Clariant, Akzo Nobel N.V. (The Netherlands), Air Products and Chemicals (U.S.), E. I. DuPont de Nemours & Co. (U.S.), Kao Corporation, Stepan Company, Ashland, Evonik Industries AG, and Reliance Industries Ltd.

Strict regulations imposed by government agencies are hindering the market's growth. Surfactants cause environmental and health issues, which compels regulatory bodies such as the 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 as permissible. For instance, as per the US Food & Drug Administration, CFR—Code of Federal Regulations Title 21, the use of surfactants 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 the growth of the market.

Extra concentrated laundry detergents are becoming popular as they reduce water consumption. Companies are developing concentrated detergents that 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, Sokalan HP 20 improves the dissolution of the surfactants into the liquid, providing a 30%–50% reduction in cold-water dissolution time. Major companies manufacturing extra concentrated laundry detergents include Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Henkel AG & Company, and Church & Dwight Co., Inc.

In September 2020, Stepan, a US-based manufacturer of specialty chemicals, acquired Clariant for an undisclosed amount. This acquisition of Clariant supports Stepan’s growth strategy in Latin America and enhances the ability to support customers’ growth in the Mexican consumer and functional markets for surfactants.

Asia-Pacific was the largest region in the surface active agents market in 2022. Western Europe was the second-largest region in the surface active agents market report. The regions covered in the surface-active agents analysis report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East, and Africa.
