Agricultural Surfactants (Non-ionic, Anionic, Cationic, Amphoteric) Market - Global Forecast to 2022

5/31/2018, 5:55 PM (Source: GlobeNewswire)

Dublin, May 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Agricultural Surfactants Market by Type (Non-ionic, Anionic, Cationic, Amphoteric), Application (Herbicides, Fungicides), Substrate Type (Synthetic, Bio-based), Crop Type (Cereals & Grains, Fruits & Vegetables), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022" report has been added to's offering.

The agricultural surfactants market is projected to reach USD 1.88 billion by 2022 from USD 1.37 billion in 2017, growing at a CAGR of 6.46%.

The market is driven by the rise in the demand for agrochemicals, adoption of modern agricultural practices, and increase in demand for green solutions; for example, the emerging use of bio-based surfactants. On the other hand, the use of genetically modified seeds is one of the major restraints in the growth of the agricultural surfactants market.

Based on substrate type, the bio-based segment is projected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period. This is attributed to the growing environmental concerns and stringent regulations on synthetic surfactants in regions such as Europe and North America. Moreover, bio-based surfactants can be used as alternatives to synthetic surfactants due to their environment-friendly, biodegradable, and less toxic characteristics.

The herbicides segment accounted for the largest share of the agricultural surfactants market in 2017. Agricultural surfactants are mainly used with water-based herbicide spray solutions as they accentuate the emulsifying, dispersing, spreading, wetting, or other surface modifying properties of liquids. Surfactants are almost always present in herbicide treatment solutions with the aim to improve spray droplet retention on and penetration of active ingredients into plant foliage.

North America was the largest agricultural surfactants market in 2017. This dominance can be attributed to the high adoption of precision farming and protected agriculture in this region. In addition, major players such as DowDuPont and Helena Chemical Company are investing more in R&D to develop new and innovative products.
