Surfactants are one of the most multipurpose products of the chemical industry. Surfactants are basically a compound that reduces the surface tension between two liquids, between a gas and a liquid, or between a liquid and a solid. . They are used in various industrial applications such as household detergents, drilling muds, food items, and pharmaceuticals. The chemical may be used as detergents, wetting agents, emulsifiers, foaming agents, and dispersants. The growth of the surfactants market is mainly driven by the growing demand from personal care, home care, and food processing among others. 

Surfactants can be mainly classified into Cationic surfactants, Anionic surfactants, Non-ionic surfactants, Amphoteric surfactants among others. Anionic and Non-ionic surfactants are most commonly used surfactants. Anionic surfactants are mainly used in modern cleaning products while Cationic surfactants are mainly used as an anti-static agent and finishing agent in fabric softener. Non-ionic surfactants are used in many applications such as wetting, spreading, emulsifying, dispersing and foaming agents and Amphoteric surfactants are used as the antistatic agents of synthetic fiber and metal rust agent.
