DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Agricultural Surfactants Market by Type (Non-ionic, Anionic, Cationic, Amphoteric), Application (Herbicides, Fungicides), Substrate Type (Synthetic, Bio-based), Crop Type (Cereals & Grains, Fruits & Vegetables), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The agricultural surfactants market was valued at USD 1.37 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 1.88 Billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 6.46%. Due to the growing demand for agrochemicals and the adoption of precision farming and protected cultivation, the market for surfactants is expected to grow in the coming years.
The agricultural surfactants market, based on type, has been segmented into non-ionic, anionic, cationic, and amphoteric. The non-ionic segment occupied the largest share in the market as most agricultural surfactants are non-ionic and are used for general wetting and spreading. Additionally, non-ionic surfactants are usually sold for being added to herbicide spray solutions. These surfactants are good dispersing agents, stable in cold water, and are less toxic to both plants and animals.
South America is projected to be the fastest-growing market for agricultural surfactants over the next five years. This can be attributed to Brazil and Argentina, which are the leading agricultural producers in the world. North America dominated the market in 2017 due to the presence of players such as DowDuPont (US), Huntsman Corporation (US), Helena Chemical (US), and Stepan Company (US).
The global market for agricultural surfactants is dominated by large-scale players such as DowDuPont (US), BASF (Germany), AkzoNobel (Netherlands), Evonik (Germany), and Solvay (Belgium). Huntsman Corporation (US), Nufarm (Australia), Clariant (Switzerland), Helena Chemical Company (US), Croda International (UK), Stepan Company (US), and Wilbur-Ellis Company (US) are a few other key market players that also hold a significant share of the agricultural surfactants market.
