Overview of the global specialty surfactants market and biosurfactants market
Surfactants are substances or amphiphilic organic compounds, which means that they comprise both hydrophobic (water repellant) and hydrophilic (water soluble or absorbent) groups. In real-world terms, what this means is that these compounds can be used for enhanced cleaning efficiency, especially of water-based compositions. In other words, they ease the surface tension of liquids. Surfactants can disperse, modify, or emulsify the lubricity of such water-based compositions.
Biosurfactants, on the other hand, are a variety of surfactants where at least one of the two basic groups-hydrophobic or hydrophilic-is derived from a plant-based source. However, biosurfactants are not always 100% plant-based. 
The two common methods of manufacturing surfactants include: Oleochemical (derived from natural vegetable oils) and synthetic (derived from petrochemicals). The global specialty surfactants market and biosurfactants market is thus broadly segmented based on these two common derivation methods. 
As of 2011, the global surfactants market, by volume, was estimated at over 15 million tons. This market has had to contend with a slew of unfavorable conditions such as soaring prices of raw material, an increasingly stringent regulatory environment, and an intensifying sustainability movement worldwide. Given this largely tumultuous scenario, the worldwide specialty surfactants market and biosurfactants market is expected to register a growth rate of just 2% to 3% over this decade.
The focus of both large and small companies in the market is showing a steady shift toward the specialty surfactants industry, which currently accounts for an estimated 25% share (valued at USD 25 billion) of the global market demand. 
Segmentation of the global specialty surfactants market and biosurfactants market
By product type, the specialty surfactants market and biosurfactants market can be segmented as: cationic surfactants, nonionic surfactants, anionic surfactants, amphoteric surfactants, and others such as silicone and fluorosurfactants.
The report observes that anionic surfactants are the most extensively used surfactant as LABS (linear alkyl benzene sulfonate) is widely used across a myriad of industries. However, the market study estimates that the non-ionic surfactants segment will emerge as the fastest-growing category over the coming years.
By application, the report segments the market as: home care, personal care, food processing, industrial and institutional cleaners, agricultural chemicals, oilfield chemicals, paints and coatings, textiles, emulsion polymerization (plastics), construction, and other markets. The largest share of the application market is occupied by home and personal care, with these two segments accounting for more than 65% of the total demand as of 2011.
The report also studies the global specialty surfactants and biosurfactants market by geography. Since 2009, Asia Pacific has held on to its position as the leading producer and consumer of surfactants. Our expert analysts expect this trend to continue as the demand in this region will see a 4% growth over the next five years.
