Description



The specialty surfactants market has been on the rise in recent years thanks to the rising levels of disposable income among consumers in Asia Pacific. The growing demand for specialty surfactants is propped up by the widening spread of the construction industry in Asia Pacific and Latin America. Growing GDP and urbanization in these two regions, mainly in dynamic economies such as China, India, South Africa, and Brazil, is majorly responsible for the growing demand from the global specialty surfactants market. 

Due to the growing demand from a variety of regional segments, the global special surfactants market is expected to grow at a 4% CAGR by volume from 2011 to 2017.

The report uses reliable industry analysis tools such as Porter’s five forces analysis and SWOT analysis to examine various aspects of the market. The five forces analysis analyzes the rivalry between new and established market players, buyers and vendors, and branded and substitute products. Primary and secondary research avenues are employed to present precise information about the global specialty surfactants market. 

The market for specialty surfactants is divided according to various criteria, such as product type, applications, and geographical distribution of the global market. Historical and projected future statistics regarding all segments according to these criteria are then presented to chart out the growth trajectory of the global specialty surfactants market over the forecast period.

The value chain of the specialty surfactants industry is analyzed in detail, to provide a comprehensive understanding of the supply-demand dynamics of the industry and demand patterns regarding each product type and from each application and regional segment.

Overview of the global specialty surfactants market

The global specialty surfactants market is divided on criteria such as product types, applications, and geography. Market size of all segments is presented in the report.

The main product types in the global specialty surfactants market are anionic surfactants, cationic surfactants, nonionic surfactants, amphoteric surfactants, and others such as silicone surfactants and fluorosurfactants. Of these, the anionic surfactants segment leads the market due to the widespread usage of linear alkyl benzene sulfonate in detergent manufacture. However, nonionic specialty surfactants are expected to gain improved stature within the specialty surfactants market in the forecast period.

Biobased surfactants currently total about 1% of the global specialty surfactants market, but increasing regulatory support due to environmental concerns will help this product segment register a strong CAGR in the forecast period. However, the bio-surfactants segment is currently handicapped by a lack of widespread awareness among both regulatory bodies and common consumers.

Of all applications of specialty surfactants, home care emerged as the leading segment. Other major applications of specialty surfactants include personal care, oilfield chemicals, food processing, industrial and institutional cleaners, textiles, agricultural chemicals, construction, paints and coatings, and emulsion polymerization.

Market Overview



In surfactant production, raw materials account for over 65% of the total manufacturing costs. Cost of raw materials, especially vegetable oils such as palm oil, castor oil etc. have been steadily increasing over the past few years owing to rising demand from other sectors such as food, feed, biodiesel and so on. This increase in cost is in turn being passed on to the consumer which has resulted in an increasing price trend. Owing to this, market revenues are expected to grow at a faster pace than market volumes. The global demand for specialty surfactants was estimated to be 13,986.0 kilo tons in 2011, which translated into revenues of USD 22.6 billion. Market volumes are expected to reach 17,662.6 kilo tons in 2017, growing at a CAGR of 4.0% for the period from 2011 to 2017.

Although anionic surfactants continue to remain the most widely used surfactant type, largely due to the use of LABS (Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulfate), non-ionic surfactants are expected to be the fastest growing category in the near future. Home and personal care continue to be the largest application market for surfactants, together accounting for over 65% of the total demand in 2011.

About 75% of the global detergent alcohol is derived from conversion of natural fats & oils, and the remaining 25% is produced synthetically from petroleum source. Since, 2009, Asia-Pacific has been the largest producer and consumer of surfactants and this trend is expected to continue for the next five years. With the acquisition of Cognis, BASF has emerged as the global market leader in surfactants, with Clariant, Akzo-Nobel, Kao and Stephens being some key participants.

A key trend in the market is the development of bio-based surfactants, which currently account for just 1% of the overall demand. Increasing environmental awareness and continued regulatory support for sustainable products, especially in Europe and North America are key drivers expected to fuel the growth of bio-based surfactants in the near future.

The global specialty surfactants market is led by Asia Pacific in terms of volume and revenue. Asia Pacific accounted for 31.6% of the overall market volume and 32.6% of overall market revenue in 2011. Household detergent and personal cleaning are the largest market for specialty surfactants. These markets are one of the largest in Asia Pacific, which is the primary reason for Asia Pacific being the largest market for specialty surfactants.
