Surfactants are the surface-active substance and can be broadly defined as compounds, which concentrate at interfaces, such as water, air or water-oil, when dissolved in water. Soaps and detergents are primary examples of surfactants. As water and oil do not dissolve in each other, surfactants have to be added to the mixture to keep them from separating into layers. In addition, a surfactant is used to stabilize mixtures of oil and water or any two liquids by reducing surface tension.

Surfactants can be further classified into different categories, such as anionic, cationic, non-ionic, amphoteric and other. Furthermore, surfactants can also be bifurcated according to the application such as household cleaning, I & I cleaning, personal care, industrial application, etc. Moreover, the surfactant can be segmented according to substrate, i.e., bio-based surfactant and synthetic surfactant.

The global surfactant market has observed consistent growth in the past few years and it is anticipated that the market would witness moderate growth over the forecasted period (2020-2024) owing to the spread of COVID-19. Moreover, the market is forecast to observe moderate growth owing to various growth augmenting factors such as escalating household expenditure, rapid urbanization, surging middle-class spending, accelerating textile industry, increasing eCommerce sales and rising demand for food & beverages.

Moreover, the market faces some challenges which are obstructing the growth of the market. Some of the foremost challenges faced by the industry are fluctuating raw material prices, and stringent environmental regulations. Market growth would be further supported by various market trends like rising demand for specialty surfactants, surging demand for microbial surfactants and an escalating adoption of surfactants by pharmaceutical industries.
