Research and Markets: Global Surfactants Market to Grow at a CAGR of 6.02% Over the Period 2015-2019, New Report Says

June 14, 2015
By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global Surfactants Market 2015-2019” report to their offering.

An increase in awareness of the harmful aspects of synthetic surfactants has resulted in a shift to bio-based surfactants. Health and environmental risks concerned with synthetic surfactants have forced governments to impose regulations to protect the environment and the consumers. However, the growing popularity of bio-based surfactants is dependent on recovering economies and high disposable incomes.

According to the report, growing awareness about personal grooming because of urbanization, higher disposable incomes, as well as increased demand for green products is driving the market. This has increased the use of amphoteric surfactants, which are predominantly used in personal care products. The markets in APAC and Latin America are expected to grow rapidly in the future because of increased per capita expenditure on personal care products. China accounts for the largest share in the market for beauty and cosmetic products, followed by India and Brazil.

Awareness of bio-based surfactants is growing as countries, aware of the health and environment risks of using synthetic surfactants, are imposing strict regulations.
