Polymer Surfactants Market: an overview
Polymer Surfactants are polymers with surfactant properties. Surfactants are compounds with ability to lower the surface tension of a liquid to reduce the interfacial tension between two liquids or between a liquid & solid. Polymer surfactants offer numerous advantages as compared to conventional monomerics, as they consist of repeated hydrophilic and hydrophobic units that provide unique high performance. Polymer surfactants are specially designed for stabilization of aqueous or non-aqueous dispersions and emulsions. They can act as foaming agents, detergents, emulsifiers, wetting agents, and dispersants in various end use industries, including cosmetic & personal care, food industries, and paint & coatings.
In the personal care industry, polymer surfactants have a broad range of applications in shampoos, showerbaths, face tonics, & deodorants. In the paint industry, inclusion of polymer surfactants enhances water-borne latex. Additionally, superior wetting properties of polymer surfactants improve the performance of agrochemical formulations. Polymer Surfactants market is expected to grow in line with GDP over the forecast period (2019-2029), attributed to its excellent wetting and stabilization properties.
Polymer Surfactants Market: Dynamics
Demand for surfactants has increased in the last decades as a result of high and specialized applications of polymer surfactants. Polymer surfactants are widely used as wetting agents to reduce the surface tension of two liquids in formulations. In cleaning solutions, polymer surfactants enable the solution to thoroughly wet the cleaning surface, enabling easy cleaning of dirty, greasy, and oily substances, particularly protein or carbohydrate stains.
Demand for polymer surfactants is also higher from agrochemical industries, attributable to high demand for high-performance insecticides, pesticides, and herbicides. Polymer surfactants that improve wetting abilities of active ingredients in insecticides and pesticides are is demand, as they improve crop yield and quality.
High formulation flexibility, dispersion capabilities, and multi-performance attributes lead to use of polymer surfactants in personal care products. Increasing demand for personal care products such as creams, gels, and formulations worldwide is thus expected to propel growth of the global polymer surfactant market.
Further, the global trend of using cleaning formulations that are gentle to hands and surface materials is expected to boost growth of the polymer surfactants market. Several manufacturers are investing in research & development for innovative product offerings related to polymer surfactants.
