Silicone Surfactants Market Growth & Trends

The global silicone surfactants market size is expected to reach USD 2.59 billion by 2030, as per the new report by Grand View Research, Inc., expanding at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2023 to 2030. This is attributed to the growing utilization of silicone surfactants in personal care and home care formulations. Rising consumer awareness and increasing preference for bio-based products are expected to boost market growth in the near future.

The market is established with the growing demand for the product from various end-use industries including agriculture, textile, automobile, construction, and paints and coatings. Water-soluble type dominated the market in 2022 due to the growing utilization of the product from the agriculture industry, especially in the formulations of fertilizers. Furthermore, the oil-soluble type has restrictions due to its unsuitability for all skin types.

Asia Pacific is a prominent region for silicone surfactants due to the presence of several manufacturers catering to various end-user industries including agriculture, textile, and automobile, along with the high scope for R&D activities in emerging economies of the region. Furthermore, there is an increasing demand for paints and coating products from developing countries such as China and India, which also contributes to market growth.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the market has witnessed a notable drop in terms of both volume and revenue as personal care and cosmetics production came to a halt globally. Similarly, the construction and paints and coatings industries observed loss during the pandemic. However, post-pandemic, the personal care, home care, construction, and automotive industries witnessed a surge in production, thus triggering product demand.
