Silicone Surfactant Market Growth Rate By Applications 2017 to 2025

Surfactants are the materials that lower the surface tension between two liquids or between a liquid & solid. Silicone surfactants are used in applications having unique properties such as low surface tension, surface activity in no aqueous media, wetting, low toxicity and polymeric nature. Silicone surfactants also used as emulsifiers, wetting agents, pigment coatings and demulsifiers. Silicone surfactants have characteristics like spreadability & softness so preferred for use as emulsifiers in personal care products, polyurethane foams, and coatings. Also silicone surfactants are used in personal care, construction and paints & coatings industries.To Get Sample Copy of Report visit

Market Growth Factors:

The silicone surfactant market is mainly driven due to the highest demand for silicone surfactants from personal care sector. Also, increase in demand of Polyurethane Foams (PU) from various industries expected to drive this market. The major challenge for this market is high cost of silicone surfactants. Strict environmental regulations by government against the use of conventional surfactants so, innovation & development in optional surfactant will the great opportunity to build this market.


Silicone surfactant market is segmented on the basis of applications such as, emulsifiers, foaming agents, defoaming agents, wetting agents, and dispersants. Further classification is based on the end use in industries such as, personal care, construction, textile, paints & coatings, and agriculture. However, personal care sector is sub-divided in skincare and hair care. Construction is sub-divided into polyurethane foam (PU). Textile manufacturing applications play a role in the silicone surfactants market, with uses including wetting and facilitate dispersion of water insoluble substances.

Geographical Analysis:

Geographically, silicone surfactant market is analysed in regions like, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa and LAMEA. Asia Pacific region is expected to dominate the silicone surfactant market in upcoming years. As the number of working women in developing economies is increasing, the use of personal care products increased which help to grow the market. There is highest demand for personal care products from China & India which drives silicone surfactant market. North America & European countries follow the Asia Pacific region.
