Surfactants

Growth in the US surfactants market will total 3.2% annually through 2018, reaching 10.9 billion pounds. Gains will be driven primarily by industrial markets benefiting from a rebound in construction expenditures. All major markets will see rising demand for more effective and less hazardous specialty surfactants

This report segments the surfactants industry by markets and products. Data is provided in million pounds.

Major surfactant markets include:

Cleaning Products

Cement & Asphalt

Personal Care Products

Lubricant & Fuel Additives

Food & Beverage Processing

Oil & Gas

Agricultural Chemicals

Paint & Coatings

Plastics

Textiles & Leather

Cleaning Products will remain the largest of these through 2018, accounting for 41% of the market. The fastest growth will be seen in Cement & Asphalt, due to increasing construction activity.

Major surfactant products include:

Anionic Surfactants

Nonionic Surfactants

Cationic Surfactants

Anionics was the leading product in 2013, accounting for 46% of demand. The most rapid gains through 2018 are forecast for Anionics as well as other, specialty surfactants. Anionics will continue to grow steadily because they are low-cost and are used in high volume markets, like cleaning products and cement and asphalt. Specialty surfactants will see equally steady growth because amphoterics, the most common of the specialty surfactants, are rising in demand in the cleaning and personal care markets.

The US surfactant industry is diverse, with a broad range of companies competing for market share. Competitors range from large multinational corporations to relatively small private companies. Some firms supply only commodity or specialty surfactants, while others offer a wide selection of products. Major suppliers of surfactants include AkzoNobel, Ashland, BASF, Chevron Phillips Chemical, Colgate Palmolive, Dow Chemical, Huntsman, Pilot Chemical, Procter & Gamble, SI Group, Solvay, Stepan, and Unilever Group.
