Press Release Description

Green Surfactants Market to Burgeon with Soaring Demand for Sulfate-free Personal Care Products

The Global Green Surfactants market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period of 2023-28, cites MarkNtel Advisors in the recent research report. The major factor that has been supporting the market growth is the manufacturing of sulfate-free personal care products by companies like L'Oreal Group, Natura & Co., etc. The companies involved in the manufacturing of personal care products have been preferring these surfactants to avoid the presence of sulfate-based surfactants such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), sodium pareth sulfate, ammonium lauryl sulfate (ALS), etc., in their products. It came after the growing awareness among consumers regarding the carcinogenicity, toxicity, skin irritation, etc., linked to sulfate-containing products.

Further, as green surfactants are manufactured from natural resources like plants, animals, & microbes, they are gentle on skin & clothing. Henceforth, the demand for products manufactured from these surfactants has amplified during 2018-2022, as customers have started to adopt products based on green surfactants. Additionally, using these surfactants would enable end-user sectors like agriculture, personal care, and others to reduce their carbon footprint, which has elevated the demand for bio-based surfactants over the past few years.

Thus, the adoption of these surfactants has expanded recently as a result of tighter government regulations in nations like the US, India, the UK, and France, among others, to reduce the carbon footprint of their industrial sectors in the forthcoming period, further states the research report, “Global Green Surfactants Market Analysis, 2023.”

Global Green Surfactants Market

Glycolipid Surfactants Dominated the Market

Based on the type, the market is further bifurcated into Glycolipids, Lipopeptides, Fatty Acids, and Others (Saponins, Sugar Esters, etc.). Among them, Glycolipids have experienced a significant rise in demand owing to their skin-sensitive properties, as they are not irritant on the skin & eyes. They are highly biodegradable, due to which they do not cause any kind of toxicity to the environment. Glycolipids help in producing highly effective foams, which are long-lasting & thus provide better cleaning compared to lipopeptides & fatty acid surfactants. Hence, with enhanced awareness among consumers regarding the benefits of glycolipid surfactants, their adoption has upscaled considerably in hand soaps, laundry detergents, and dishwashing liquids.

This has also led companies like Solvay, The Dow Chemical Company, etc., to manufacture glycolipid-based surfactants due to their amplified demand among personal care products & detergent manufacturers. Hence, with the production of improved quality glycolipid surfactants by the major industry players, their demand is presumed to uplift in the forecasted years.

North America Followed by APAC to Witness Considerable Growth in the Market

Geographically, North America dominated the market in the historical years, owing to the amplified research & development of green surfactant products. With this, the region has launched several of these surfactants with applications in different end-user industries, which has supported market growth. The region is anticipated to witness significant growth in the forecasted years as well, owing to the presence of key players who are constantly investing in the advancement of products to enhance the application areas of green surfactants.

Moreover, Asia-Pacific is also anticipated to account for the majority of market share in the upcoming years, owing to the growing commitments by the end-user industries to adopt sustainable raw materials with a low carbon footprint. In addition, the commitment of Asia-Pacific countries like India, China, etc., to reduce their carbon emissions from their industrial sector would further support the adoption of green surfactants across industries like oil & gas, personal care, household detergent manufacturers, etc., in the following years, further contributing to the growth of the global market.

Competitive Landscape

With strategic initiatives, such as mergers, collaborations, and acquisitions, the leading market players, including BASF SE, Innospec Inc, Jeneil Biotechnology, Ecover Eco-Surfactant, Groupe Soliancz, Saraya Co. Ltd., MG Intobio, AGAE Technologies, Stepan Company, Evonik Industries AG, GlycoSurf LLC, The Dow Chemical Company, Kaneka Corporation, TeeGene Biotech, Ajinomoto Co Inc. and Others are looking forward to strengthening their market position.
