DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2tpwmn/surfactants) has announced the addition of the "Surfactants Market by Product type, Substrates, and Applications - Global Trends & Forecast to 2019" report to their offering.
The global surfactants market is projected to reach 22,802 kilotons, by volume and $40,286 million by 2019
Surfactants is a term derived from the contraction of the terms SURFace ACTive Agents. These are a group of amphiphilic organic compounds that help to lower the surface tension of a liquid or interfacial tension between two liquids. These usually act as detergents or wetting agents or emulsifiers or foaming agents.
The wetting and penetration effect, emulsification, dispersion, foaming, detergency, conditioning, and substantivity are some of the important properties of surfactants due to which they are widely used across different industries. This report analyzes the global surfactants market based on the regions, product type, substrate type, and application. The report covers qualitative aspect of surfactants and their detailed volume (kilotons) and value ($million) forecasts (2014-2019).
The surfactants market analysis is derived by studying consumption trends across the regions, such as Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, and the Rest of the World (RoW). Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the largest consumer of surfactants, followed by North America and Europe. The report also covers the consumption of surfactants and revenue trends by their product type (based on their charge), such as anionic, non-ionic, cationic, and amphoteric, where anionic surfactants are estimated to witness the largest consumption across the globe.
The consumption of surfactants by their substrate type (synthetic/petrochemical & bio-based/natural/renewable) has also been included in this study. In addition to the aforementioned segments, the report analyzes the applications in which surfactants are mainly consumed. The applications covered include soap/detergents, personal care, textile, I&I cleaning, elastomers and plastics, oilfield chemicals, food, pharmaceuticals, crop protection, and other applications, such as paints & coatings and pulp & paper industries. The price trends of surfactants have been analyzed from annual reports of key players of the industry.
