The South American market for surfactants is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period. The market in this region will witness a rise, from current value of $2.9 billion to $4 billion by 2020. With 9% of the global market share, this region will experience a strong growth in the coming years.

Brazil is the largest surfactant market in South American region, followed by Argentina, Venezuela and Chile. The South American market benefits from a growing middle class, their stability and rising purchasing power. Top personal care product manufacturers are looking for quality products, hence they tend to purchase high quality surfactants from the key manufacturers.

The National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) of Brazil along with other regional agencies provide the necessary regulations and standards concerning manufacture, supply and import of surfactants in domestic and industrial applications. Companies have to adhere to the non-toxicity and waste products norms.

Surfactants have a wide range of applications because of its properties like high adsorption rate, elasticity and viscosity. They are used to stabilize rapidly forming bubbles during processes like emulsification and flocculation in various chemical and textile industries.

Based on nature of the product, surfactants can be classified as Synthetic or Bio based. Synthetic surfactants are made of petroleum products and are used in detergents, cleaners, as auxiliaries for textiles, in paintings and coatings. Bio based surfactants are also finding increase in its range of applications as they are renewable and biodegradable. The South America Surfactants market, on the basis of material type can be broadly segmented into anionic surfactants, cationic surfactants, non-ionic surfactants, amphoteric surfactants, silicone surfactants, and fluoro-surfactants. These are again segmented according to the sub-segmentations of the materials. The South America Surfactants market, on the basis of origin type can be broadly segmented into synthetic surfactants and bio-based surfactants. The market has also been geographically segmented into Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Venezuela, Peru and Rest of South America. In terms of market revenue in 2015, United States led the market with a share of XX.XX%.

Furthermore, the growing adoption of bio-surfactants in new and unconventional markets will offer numerous opportunities in the growth of the South America Surfactants Market. Some of the major companies dominating this market for its products, services, and continuous product developments are Huntsman Corp. Dow Chemicals, Henkel AG & Co. KGaA, Clariant AG, and E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Co.
