Global Silicone Surfactants Market Industry Analysis
In Global Silicone Surfactants Market Report, Silicone surfactants are used in a variety of end-use industries, including personal care & cosmetics, construction, paints & coatings, and more. As a result, the market share of silicone surfactants is expected to increase significantly over the period 2021-2027.
Silicone surfactants are copolymers of polyethers and silicone that are widely used in a variety of applications that derive performance benefits from the silicone nature and high surface activity of the formulations. These water-miscible polymers have both hydrophilic polyether and hydrophobic siloxane characteristics.
The escalating demand for advanced surfactant formulations in the personal care industry is a major factor driving market trends for silicone surfactants over the period 2021-2027. In recent years, there has been a worldwide emphasis on grooming and personal hygiene, particularly among younger generations, which has contributed to the growth of the cosmetics and personal care industry.
Increasing Emphasis on Hygiene and Cleanliness Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and Its Influence on Silicone Surfactant Market Trends
The outbreak of the novel coronavirus and the subsequent pandemic have created a crisis situation on a global scale that has never been seen before, becoming one of the most devastating health threats in human history. In the past year, millions of people around the world have contracted the COVID-19 virus, resulting in severe respiratory complications and other health problems. The pandemic has also caused a significant shift in consumer habits and preferences, most notably a sharp increase in hygiene awareness, which has led to a surge in demand for soaps, detergents, and other cleaning products designed to prevent the spread of the virus. In the first half of 2020, Henkel, which owns brands such as Schwarzkopf and Persil, saw a nearly 60% increase in hand soap sales across the United States.
While the economic impact of the pandemic has been largely negative, posing challenges for many industries, the growing emphasis on hygiene and increased interest in cleaning products will likely present lucrative growth opportunities for the silicone surfactants market in the coming years, especially considering that disinfectant and cleaning products are likely to remain in high demand even after the pandemic.
Analysis and Insights of the Market Global market for silicone surfactants
According to Zion Market Research, the silicone surfactants market will reach USD 3,148.5 Million by 2026, expanding at a CAGR of approximately 6.0% from 2020 to 2026. Silicone surfactants market report analyses the growth, which is currently expanding as a result of expanding application scope in paints, coatings, and inks production.
Silicone surfactants, also known as surface active elements, are predominantly organic compounds derived from petrochemical raw materials like benzene and ethylene, or oleochemical raw materials like palm oil or coconut oil. In addition to personal care products, coatings and paints, and emulsion polymerization, they are widely used in a variety of other applications.
Due to their use in the cosmetics industry, silicone surfactants are in high demand. Personal hygiene and care have become essential aspects of people’s lives. This is fueling the cosmetics market. Low thermal conductivity also significantly contributes to the global silicone surfactants market’s expansion.
In addition, the foaming, emulsifying, and dispersing properties of silicone surfactants have led to a worldwide demand for these substances. Due to the increased use of these surfactants in emerging industries, the global silicone surfactants market has expanded substantially. The use of silicone surfactants to insulate buildings and homes from noise has also boosted the global market. In addition, the textile industry has become a major consumer of silicone surfactants. This has resulted in lucrative market opportunities.
Nonetheless, the availability of low-priced synthetic surfactants is anticipated to restrain the growth of the silicone surfactants market during the aforementioned time frame. In addition, the high cost of silicone surfactants will hinder the expansion of the silicone surfactants market.
