Non-Ionic Surfactants Market by Matrix Type, Global Industry Analysis, Future Demand, Trends Forecast To 2023
Non-Ionic Surfactant Market – Overview
Non-ionic surfactant is used in various industries such as food & beverages, paint & coatings, oilfield, textiles, personal care, construction, household, and others. Additionally, the growing demand in the household and personal care industry is a key factor to drive the non-ionic surfactants market. The trends of using personal care products such as hair care and skin care products has driven this market. Based on region, the market share of non-ionic surfactants is high in Asia Pacific due to huge utilization in growing industry such as paint & coatings, oilfield, construction, and others.
Surfactants or surface-active agents are compounds which decrease the surface tension of liquids, and between liquid and a solid. Non-ionic surfactant is a type of surfactant, which has no charged groups in its head. The major advantage is that they can’t make contact with calcium and magnesium in hard water. Soaps form insoluble calcium and magnesium salts with the calcium and magnesium ions in hard water, much of the soap is unused founding an insoluble layer
Key players of the global non-ionic surfactants market are 3M (US), Akzo Nobel N.V. (Netherlands), Arkema (France), BASF SE (Germany), Clariant (Switzerland), Dow Corning Corporation. (US), Elementis plc (UK), Evonik Industries AG (Germany), Huntsman International LLC (US), Kao Corporation (Japan), and others.
Global Non-Ionic Surfactant Market is divided into type, application, end user industry, and region. Based on type, the non-ionic surfactant market is segmented into alcohol ethoxylates, fatty alkanolamides, amine derivatives, glycerol derivatives, and others. Among all, alcohol ethoxylates surfactant are the major type of surfactant due to high utilization in laundry detergents which is further used in institutional and industrial cleaners, oil, cosmetics, household cleaners, agriculture, textile, paper, and other process industries.
Alcohol ethoxylate non-ionic surfactant have many features such excellent cleaning of synthetic fibres, as low to moderate foaming capacity, biodegradation, and tolerance of water hardness. Alcohol ethoxylates is safe and is non-toxic with regard to consumer use which further adds to the driving factor in non-ionic surfactant market.
Fatty alkanolamides non-ionic surfactant are used to make economical and low priced dish and fabric washing formulas. Fatty alkanolamides are very important ingredient during the manufacture of soaps and personal care products, due to having a lipophilic group which is totally biocompatible and well adapted to the preparation of surfactants for food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics.
Geographically, Asia Pacific accounts for the largest market share in non-ionic surfactants market growth. Increasing purchasing power of the growing middle class especially in household, and personal care industry is reason to drive the non-ionic surfactants market in this region, followed by North America. North America holds the second position for non-ionic surfactants market and is another profitable market in terms of value and volume after APAC.
UK, Canada, and United Mexican States led the demand for non-ionic surfactants in this region. Europe accounted for the third largest share in the global non-ionic surfactants market in 2016. On the other hand, Latin America, Middle East & Africa is another growing market for non-ionic surfactants and likely to show better growth rate over the forecast period.
