Surfactants are surface active agents, categorized as cationic surfactants, anionic surfactants, amphoteric surfactants, and nonionic surfactants. Anionic surfactants contain sulfonates, dispersants, carboxylates, sulfates, or phosphates. Anionic surfactants find applications in various products such as carpet cleaners, shampoos, encapsulation products, wetting agents, foaming agents, laundry detergents, dishwasher detergents, and others.

Market Dynamics:-

Anionic surfactants find applications in pharmaceuticals, construction, and others. Demand and consumption of anionic surfactant is increasing because of their lower cost, easy availability, and wider application range than other surfactants. Among product type, sodium lauryl sulfate is most commonly used in the paint industry for stabilizing an emulsion. According to World Paint & Coatings Industry Association (WPCIA), the global market for paint and coating industry increased to US$ 164.9 billion in 2018, up by 4.9%, from US$ 157.2 billion in 2017. A significant growth in construction industry and urbanization is expected to boost growth of the paints and coatings market. This would increase the demand for anionic surfactants and in turn drive growth of the global anionic surfactants market.

Anionic surfactants have negative properties which may affect the market growth. For instance, the pharmaceutical industry and stringent government regulations regarding personal care products may hamper the market growth, since anionic surfactants are skin irritants.

Market Outlook:-

Asia Pacific holds dominant position in the anionic surfactants market, in personal care industry and is expected to be the fastest growing region during the forecast period. This dominance of Asia Pacific region is mainly due to the increasing population. Anionic surfactant is mainly used as a foaming agent in cosmetics and personal care products such as shampoo, body wash, and others. A significant growth in personal care market is expected to boost growth of the anionic surfactants market in the region during the forecast period. For instance, India’s beauty and grooming market is expected to reach US$ 20 billion by 2025, from 6.5 million in 2015, according to the India Brand Equity Foundation.
