Electronic Surfactants Market: Introduction
Surfactants are compounds used for lowering the surface tension between two liquids, a gas and liquid, or liquid and solid. They are organic compounds, which contain hydrophobic group and hydrophilic group. They act as wetting agents, foaming agents, detergents, emulsifiers, and dispersants. Electronic surfactants are formulated by sustainable chemistry. This helps in lowering the surface tension in semiconductor applications. They exhibit characteristics akin to wetting agents that help improve leveling and enhance flow control. Electronic surfactants also provide low surface tension in various aqueous solutions for electronic processing. They possess properties such as high solubility, improved wetting, low concentration, and stability.
Electronic Surfactants Market: Segmentation Overview
Based on product, the electronic surfactants market can be classified into anionic, cationic, nonionic, amphoteric, and others. Electronic surfactants consist of a head and tail; nonionic surfactants are those that do not contain charged groups in their heads. Ionic surfactants are those which have net positive and net negative charge. Anionic surfactants have negative charge, and cationic surfactants have positive charge. In terms of product, anionic surfactants is expected to be the major segment of the market in the near future. The nonionic surfactant segment is expected to have lower growth rate, while the amphoteric surfactants is estimated to be a rapidly growing segment during the forecasted period. In terms of end-use industry, the market can be divided into homecare & personal care, food processing, agriculture, textiles, oil & gas, industrial, paints & coatings, building & construction, and others.
Electronic Surfactants Market: Overview
Large scale utilization of electronic surfactants can cause environmental and health concerns. As result, governmental agencies have enacted various regulations on the usage of electronic surfactants. The toxicity level in the manufacture of electronic surfactants needs to be within the permissible limit. These regulations restrict the electronic surfactants market. Market players are shifting from conventional electronic surfactants to green and bio-based surfactants.
Electronic Surfactants Market: Regional Outlook
In terms of region, the electronic surfactants market can be segregated into Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, North America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific holds large share of the global electronic surfactants market. The purchasing power of the people in China and India in Asia Pacific has been rising. This is driving the demand for electronic surfactants in these countries. Leading manufacturing companies are based in North America. Demand for electronic surfactants is rising in the region. The electronic surfactants market in Europe is anticipated to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period due to the expansion in electronics and personal care industries. Market for electronic surfactants in Latin America and Middle East & Africa are estimated grow at a healthy growth rate during the forecast period.
