Surfactant is a term derived from contraction of the terms ‘Surface Active Agents’. These are a group of amphiphilic organic compounds which help to lower the surface tension of a liquid or interfacial tension between two liquids. These usually act as a detergents or wetting agents or emulsifiers or foaming agents. The wetting and penetration effect, emulsification, dispersion, foaming, detergency, conditioning, and substantivity are some of the important properties of surfactants due to which these are widely used across different industries. The report describes about global surfactant market based on the geography, product types, substrate type, and application of surfactants. The report covers qualitative aspect of surfactants and detailed volume (thousand tons) and value ($million) forecasts (2010-2017) of surfactants.

The surfactant market is derived by studying consumption trends across the regions such as Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, and Rest of World (ROW). Europe is estimated to be the largest consumer of surfactants, followed by North America and Asia-Pacific with an estimation that the later would rise to be the second largest surfactant consumer READ MORE >
