Surfactants are used in detergents, wetting agents, emulsifier, foaming agents, and dispersants. It is used in the process of emulsification and flocculation due to its high absorption rate in the chemical and textile industries. It is also used in personal care products such as conditioners, anti-aging cream, and cleansers.

As per the findings of a newly published market research report by IndustryARC, the global surfactants market size was around $35.426 billion in 2018. Moreover, it is estimated to grow with a CAGR of 5.38% during the forecast period of 2019 to 2025. The report is titled "Surfactants Market: By Type (Anionic, Non-Ionic, Cationic, Amphoteric & Others); By Application (Personal Care, Food & Beverages, Oilfield Chemicals, Agriculture, Textile & Others); & By Geography - Forecast(2019 - 2025),” 

According to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, the global biomass demand was valued to be 28.0 Mb/d in 2015, and due to the population growth and the increase in the number of organic product foreseen in the future, the demand for biomass is estimated to grow with an annual rate of 1.2% pa through to 2040 which translates to the requirement of a whopping 37.3 Mb/d in 2040. Biomass is foreseen as the next revolution in the surfactants marketplace.
