Surfactants, also known as surface-active agents, are organic chemicals with a hydrophilic and a hydrophobic end that when added to a liquid, change its properties. Surfactants can be classified either based on the nature of their charge on individual polar functional groups or based on their molecular weights. Depending on the nature of hydrophilic moiety ensuring the water affinity of the molecule, surfactants are majorly classified into anionic, cationic, non-ionic, and amphoteric surfactants.

The growth of the surfactants market is majorly driven by the development of end-user industries and changes in lifestyle in the developing economies. However, factors such as volatility in raw material prices, increase in inclination toward green products, and governmental pressure for implementation of eco-friendly chemical processes are expected to impede the market growth. Moreover, enforcement of stringent regulations toward  the use of surfactants, due to their environmental issues and pollution control laws for manufacturing processes  limit the adoption of surfactants; thereby, restraining the market growth

The key factor responsible for the growth of the anionic surfactants market includes an upsurge in consumption of consumer products, such as shampoo, hand wash, bathing gels, toothpaste, soaps, and detergents. The consumption of these products has increased with growth in population and rise in concern for personal grooming.
