The global surfactant market is mainly driven by the home and personal care and industrial cleaning industry. With technological developments, the application area of surfactants has increased from the daily chemical industry to technical applications, such as petroleum, food, environment, health, and new materials.

Asia-Pacific was found to be the largest market with over 35% share of the global surfactant market. The market in the region is driven by population growth and the continuous improvement of people’s living standards. There is high growth in the usage of cosmetics and detergent products in the region, which is anticipated to drive the growth for the consumption of surfactants during the forecast period.

The global market for surfactants is highly fragmented owing to the presence of a large number of suppliers spread across the regions. The major players in the market include BASF SE, Stepan Company, Solvay, The Dow Chemical Company, and Evonik Industries among others.

In April 2020, BASF SE appointed BTC Europe as a distribution partner for the entire personal care portfolio in the UK and Ireland. BASF Care Creations personal care portfolio includes surfactants, emulsions, polymers, cosmetic active ingredients.

In January 2020, Huntsman International completed the sale of its Chemical Intermediates (includes PO/MTBE) and Surfactants business to Indorama Ventures in a transaction valued at USD 2 billion.
