Cationic Surfactants Market Insights and Forecast - 2027

Cationic surfactants are defined as surfactants having a positive charge at their hydrophilic ends. They are quaternary ammonia compounds. Examples of cationic surfactants include benzethonium, alkyl-dimethyl dichlorobenzene ammonium, cetylpridium, dequalinium, phenamylinium chlorides, and cetrimonium. When cationic surfactants are mixed with anionic surfactants, the overall solution becomes neutral and is no longer be effective. The positive charge on cationic surfactants makes them useful in manufacturing anti-static products such as fabric softeners, personal care, and industrial cleaning products. Cationic surfactants possess a superior antimicrobial property, which makes them suitable to be used as antimicrobial agents in disinfectants. Cationic surfactants find their application for a wide variety of purposes such as consumer and industrial cleaning, antimicrobial agents, oilfield chemicals, and agrochemicals.

COVID-19 Scenario Analysis

  • Owing to the outbreak of COVID-19, national and international transport has been hampered due to restrictions imposed by several governments. This has led to demand and supply disruptions for the global cationic surfactants market.
  • Decreased capital resources and potential global recession due to the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to restrain demand for cationic surfactants among new market players.
  • Economics of the cationic surfactants market is expected to return on track, owing to use of cationic surfactants in a variety of end-use industries such as consumer and industrial cleaning, antimicrobial agents, oilfield chemicals, and agrochemicals.
  • Antimicrobial and cleaning products have witnessed a huge expansion in demand during the COVID-19 pandemic. Antimicrobial properties of the cationic surfactants would be utilized widely to mitigate effect the novel coronavirus. This is anticipated to propel growth of the cationic surfactants market amid the COVID-19 scenario.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, and impact analysis

Rise in demand for disinfectants, owing to the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic where cationic surfactants are used as antimicrobial agents accelerate growth of the cationic surfactants market. In addition, growth in demand for personal care and cosmetics-based products in Asia-Pacific where cationic surfactants are widely used for manufacturing oleochemicals propel cationic surfactants. However, presence of substitutes such as foaming, wetting, dispersing, and emulsifying agents over cationic surfactants hamper growth of the cationic surfactants market. Conversely, increase in research and development activities is expected to provide improvised production techniques and technological advancements for use of cationic surfactants in household and industrial cleaners. This is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the cationic surfactants market during the forecast period.
