The outbreak of COVID-19 virus has had a positive effect on surfactants demand, attributable to rising cognizance regarding hygiene and cleanliness as the contagion is a highly infectious. Although, operational and supply chain disruptions, along with lockdown imposed in key regions are hindering business development.

On the other hand, strategic alliances coupled with introduction of new products and services by major players  are further augmenting worldwide surfactants industry size. Citing an instance, BASF SE, in 2019, introduced Plurafac LF RA-P, a new plastic surface rinse aid surfactant in North America, which mitigated the effects of spotting and filming on plastics used in industrial and institutional washing applications.

Speaking of the major restraints, the strict norms imposed by the government agencies are likely to leave a negative impact on industry remuneration.

Based on type, global surfactants market is divided into amphoteric surfactants, cationic surfactants, non-ionic surfactants, and anionic surfactants. As per application spectrum, the industry is bifurcated into elastomers & plastics, textiles, agrochemicals, food & beverage, oilfield chemicals, industrial & institutional cleaning, personal care, home care, and others.

Considering the regional terrain, North America currently holds a major portion of global surfactants market share, on account of growing inclination towards cost reduction in advertising and prompt adoption of new technology.

Established firms in global surfactants market sphere are KAO Corporation, Ashland Global Holdings Inc., Clariant Specialty Chemicals, Indorama Ventures Public Company Limited, The Dow Chemical Company, Solvay S.A., Stepan Company, Evonik Industries AG, Nouryon, and BASF SE.
