The surface-active agents market consists 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.

The main product types of surface-active agents 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 cleaner, food processing, oilfield chemical, agricultural chemical, textile, plastic, paint and coating, adhesive, and other applications.

The global surface active agents market size is expected to grow from $26.66 billion in 2021 to $28.65 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.5%. The global surface active agent market size is expected to grow to $37.37 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 6.9%.

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 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-user drives the surface-active agents market.

Strict regulations imposed by government agencies are hindering the market 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 at permissible. For instance, as per 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 it reduces 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.

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.
