Specialty Surfactants Market Statistics - 2027

Surfactants are chemical compounds that lower the surface tension between two liquids or between a liquid and a solid. Specialty surfactants are surface active agents that are manufactured by using synthetic or oleochemical methods. Surfactants that are derived synthetically are produced from petroleum-based byproducts including benzene and ethylene. On the other hand, oleochemicals are derived from natural sources such as vegetable oils, palm seed oils, and coconut. Specialty surfactants play major role in cleaning, dispersing, emulsifying, foaming, and wetting agent. These chemicals have a wide area of applications in the personal care, home care, agricultural, oil & gas, and several other industries.

COVID-19 scenario analysis:

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the global specialty surfactant market to a great extent.

  • Since the outbreak of the global pandemic there is a high concern about hygiene and cleanliness among the people. As a result, the demand for products such as detergents and soaps have increased drastically and consequently the demand for specialty surfactants has also increased.
  • As a result of the economic slowdown caused by the pandemic, the amount of disposable income among the consumers decreased. This caused a downfall in the demand for cosmetics and personal care products across the globe and thus the demand for specialty surfactants in these industries decreased.
  • Specialty surfactants have played a significant role in the production of numerous home care, agrochemical, and other products; however, the disruptions in supply chain caused by the pandemic has severely affected the market by causing a chain effect, which disrupted the usual practices.

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers and Impact Analysis

The rapid urbanization and economic development across the globe has increased the amount of disposable income among the consumers.
