"The agricultural surfactants market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.46%."

The agricultural surfactants market is projected to reach USD 1.88 billion by 2022 from USD 1.37 billion in 2017, growing at a CAGR of 6.46%. The market is driven by the rise in the demand for agrochemicals, adoption of modern agricultural practices, and increase in demand for green solutions; for example, the emerging use of bio-based surfactants. On the other hand, the use of genetically modified seeds is one of the major restraints in the growth of the agricultural surfactants market.

"Bio-based segment is projected to boost the growth of agricultural surfactants through 2022."

Based on substrate type, the bio-based segment is projected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period. This is attributed to the growing environmental concerns and stringent regulations on synthetic surfactants in regions such as Europe and North America. Moreover, bio-based surfactants can be used as alternatives to synthetic surfactants due to their environment-friendly, biodegradable, and less toxic characteristics.

"The herbicides segment was the largest market in 2017."

The herbicides segment accounted for the largest share of the agricultural surfactants market in 2017. Agricultural surfactants are mainly used with water-based herbicide spray solutions as they accentuate the emulsifying, dispersing, spreading, wetting, or other surface modifying properties of liquids. Surfactants are almost always present in herbicide treatment solutions with the aim to improve spray droplet retention on and penetration of active ingredients into plant foliage.

"North America was the largest market in 2017."

North America was the largest agricultural surfactants market in 2017. This dominance can be attributed to the high adoption of precision farming and protected agriculture in this region. In addition, major players such as DowDuPont and Helena Chemical Company are investing more in R&D to develop new and innovative products.

The agricultural surfactants market was valued at USD 1.37 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 1.88 Billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 6.46%. Due to the growing demand for agrochemicals and the adoption of precision farming and protected cultivation, the market for surfactants is expected to grow in the coming years.

The agricultural surfactants market, based on type, has been segmented into non-ionic, anionic, cationic, and amphoteric. The non-ionic segment occupied the largest share in the market as most agricultural surfactants are non-ionic and are used for general wetting and spreading. Additionally, non-ionic surfactants are usually sold for being added to herbicide spray solutions. These surfactants are good dispersing agents, stable in cold water, and are less toxic to both plants and animals.

The agricultural surfactants market, by application, has been segmented into herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, and others (fertilizers, micronutrients, biostimulants, disinfectants, biocides, plant regulators, and other crop protection chemicals such as nematicides and acaricides). Agricultural surfactants are almost always present in herbicide treatment solutions with the aim to improve spray droplet retention on and penetration of active ingredients into plant foliage. Hence, this application dominated the agricultural surfactants market in 2017.

The agricultural surfactants market, by substrate type, has been segmented into synthetic and bio-based. Synthetic surfactants are mainly derived from the chemical synthesis of petroleum or petroleum-based products. Currently, most surfactants available in the market are synthesized from petroleum-based feedstock such as ethylene, benzene, kerosene, and n-paraffins. This segment dominated the agricultural surfactants market in 2017 due to the high consumption of herbicides and fungicides that consist of surfactants in the range of 1%-10%.

The agricultural surfactants market, by crop type, has been segmented into cereals & grains, fruits & vegetables, and others (sugarcane, plantation crops, and turf & ornamentals). Herbicides are largely used during the production of cereals & grains. Surfactants are used in herbicide treatment solutions for cereals & grains to improve spray droplet retention and penetration of active ingredients into the plant foliage. Therefore, the cereals & grains segment dominated the market in 2017.

Agricultural Surfactants Market

South America is projected to be the fastest-growing market for agricultural surfactants over the next five years. This can be attributed to Brazil and Argentina, which are the leading agricultural producers in the world. North America dominated the market in 2017 due to the presence of players such as DowDuPont (US), Huntsman Corporation (US), Helena Chemical (US), and Stepan Company (US).

Use of genetically modified seeds and the growing restrictions on synthetic surfactants have been the major restraints for the market growth.

The global market for agricultural surfactants is dominated by large-scale players such as DowDuPont (US), BASF (Germany), AkzoNobel (Netherlands), Evonik (Germany), and Solvay (Belgium). Huntsman Corporation (US), Nufarm (Australia), Clariant (Switzerland), Helena Chemical Company (US), Croda International (UK), Stepan Company (US), and Wilbur-Ellis Company (US) are a few other key market players that also hold a significant share of the agricultural surfactants market.
