BASF SE (Germany) is developing its low foaming surfactants by expanding its production capacities to enhance its position in the market. For instance, in October 2015, the company expanded its production capacity of emollients, waxes, and surfactants. This expansion increased its position in the local market. Additionally, in July 2018, BASF SE (Germany) announced the capacity expansion of its integrated ethylene oxide complex, based in Antwerp, Belgium. The project includes capacity expansions for ethylene oxide and several downstream derivatives, such as surfactants.

Research Coverage:

This report segments the market for low foam surfactants based on type, application, and region, and provides estimations for the overall market size across various regions. A detailed analysis of key industry players has been conducted to provide insights into their business overviews, products & services, key strategies, new product launches, expansions, agreements, and acquisitions associated with the market for low foam surfactants.

Request Sample:

Non-ionic is the largest type segment of the low foam surfactants market.

Non-ionic surfactants are mixed with other surfactants and are used widely in cleaners and industrial cleaning applications. The demand is estimated to surge from APAC and South American regions. This is the result of increasing awareness for institutional cleaning and cleanliness in the industries, institutes, and various corporate & government offices. Moreover, the region includes some of the fastest-growing economies such as China, India, and Brazil. Industrial development in these regions favors various other chemical industries, including surfactants.

Home & personal care is estimated to be the largest application segment of the low foam surfactants market during the forecast period.

Low surfactants are used in home care applications such as laundry detergents, dishwasher detergents, carpet cleaners, floor cleaners, and various types of fabric softeners. In personal care application, they are responsible for antimicrobial properties, foaming & conditioning properties (in the case of shampoos, face washes, and skin care creams), mild detergency actions, and preservative properties that are essential. The demand for home & personal care is attributed mainly to the growing market of countries in APAC, including China and India, consequently driving the low foam surfactants market. The demand for household and personal care products is expected to drive the low foam surfactants market in the region during the forecast period.

APAC is estimated to be the largest market for low foam surfactants during the forecast period.

Rising demand from an increasing population accompanied by the development of new technologies and products are projected to make this region an ideal destination for the low foam surfactants industry to grow. Improved lifestyle, the rising cost of living, and growing population will help industries such as personal care, home care, and oil & gas to flourish in developing regions, and thereby drive the low foam surfactants market. Similarly, abundant feedstock and other raw materials, which are required majorly for bio-based surfactants, are widely available in this region. This will allow low foam surfactants manufacturers to produce eco-friendly products.
