Market Overview:

The Global Surfactants Market is valued at USD 40.5 Billion in the year 2021 and is anticipated to reach a value of USD 53.3 Billion by the year 2028. The Global Market is forecasted to grow to exhibit a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.7% over the forecast period. Surfactants are organic compounds with both hydrophilic and hydrophobic ends that aid in the dissolution of oil molecules in water. They have various applications across multiple industries because of their properties such as detergence, dispersion stabilization, wettability, foam/froth formation, and emulsion. Surfactants' largest application in terms of volume is household soap and detergent. Surfactants are utilized in several personal care products, including foaming agents, dispersants, emulsifiers, solubilizing agents, cleansers, and conditioners. The personal care industry accounted for a sizable portion of the global market, which in turn boosts the growth of the market.

COVID-19 has hurt the market in 2021. Due to the pandemic scenario, several countries were compelled to go into lockdown, causing individuals to reduce their use of personal automobiles, lowering lubricant and fuel consumption and, as a result, lowering demand for gasoline additives and surfactants. However, in the current environment, there is a greater awareness of personal hygiene and clean surroundings, which has boosted demand for personal and household cleaning products, which in turn boosts the growth of the market.
