A surfactant can be defined as a substance, which reduces the surface tension of the liquid in which it is dissolved. The recent trend of high demand for environment-friendly surfactants has encouraged companies to increase their research in the field. The global population is increasing exponentially and every day nearly 200,000 people are getting added to the world food demand. According to the US population division, the world’s human population has increased nearly fourfold in the past 100 years, and it is projected to reach 9.2 billion by 2050. It has become a global threat to supply food to this increasing population. Farmland per capita in 2030 is expected to decrease to 1800 m² from 2,200 m² in 2005. Making the scenario worse, various crop pests are causing 10%-16% of global crop losses annually. Therefore, to meet global food demand, crop protection is the key strategy adopted by farmers. The demand for crop protection chemicals is further driving the agricultural surfactants market.

Based on type, the agricultural surfactants market is segmented into non-ionic, anionic, cationic, and amphoteric. The non-ionic segment is expected to dominate the agricultural surfactants market during the forecast period as most agricultural surfactants are non-ionic and are used for general wetting and spreading. In addition, non-ionic surfactants are typically sold in addition to spray solutions for herbicides. These surfactants are stable in cold water, good dispersing agents and are less toxic to plants and animals.

On the basis of substrate, synthetic surfactants segment is expected to account for the largest share in the agricultural surfactants market due to the high consumption of herbicides and fungicides that consist of synthetic surfactants in the range of 1%–10%. Synthetic surfactants are obtained primarily from the petroleum or petroleum products chemical synthesis. Currently, most surfactants available in the agricultural surfactants market are synthesized from petroleum-based feedstock such as ethylene, benzene, kerosene, and n-paraffins.

Based on crop type, the cereal & grains segment is expected to dominate the demand in the agricultural surfactants market during the forecast period. Herbicides are largely used during the production of cereals & grains. Surfactants are used to enhance spray droplet retention and penetration of active components into the plant foliage in herbicide treatment solutions for cereals & vegetables.

On the basis of application, the agricultural surfactants market is segmented into herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, and others. The herbicide segment is expected to have the largest market share in the agricultural surfactants market during the forecast period. In herbicide treatment solutions, agricultural surfactants are almost always present with the objective of improving spray droplet retention and penetration of active components into plant foliage.

North America is expected to hold the largest part of the agricultural surfactants market. Increasing government assistance for continued supply to the population of food, biofuel, and feed is expected to increase development on the worldwide market for agricultural surfactants. Due to evolving approaches to enter niche markets such as Thailand, China, and India, Asia Pacific is expected to arise as a prospective agricultural surfactants market. In the near future, these regions are projected to grow worldwide agricultural surfactants market.
