The global silicone surfactants market is forecasted to reach USD 3,161.5 Million by 2028, according to a new report by Reports and Data. This type of surfactants, like dimethicone copolyol, contain hydrophilic and hydrophobic portions that help it in minimizing the surface tension of water. Reducing surface tension is a crucial, primary step in the formation of foam, wetting, and emulsification. The market is projected to witness considerable expansion during the forecast period. The market growth is resultant of a combination of different factors. One of the mentionable factors in this regards is its traits like bacteria resistance, hypo-allergic to the skin, and biocompatibility. The presence of these traits in this surfactant results in its extensive application in personal care products. In addition to that, its features like low thermal conductivity, and low weight have resulted in its increasing use for insulating industrial and agricultural buildings. It is also applicable in commercial buildings for maintaining uniform temperature and minimizing noise levels. Such diverse applications have positively impacted the growth of the market. Another mentionable factor supporting market growth is a continuous emphasis on R&D activities. Silicone surfactants- which are copolymers of polyethers and silicone, have recently been demonstrated to develop the efficiency of microemulsions. Such findings have only been possible due to systematic studies on its phase behavior, which has further developed the knowledge of self-assembly of large molecules. These findings are turning out to be useful to manufacture nanostructured materials, which in turn is expanding the area of operation of the market.

In regards to region, Europe occupies a considerable market position. The growth of the market in Europe is resultant of the well-established cosmetics industry, increasing awareness and demand for skin-friendly personal care products.

Further key findings from the report suggest

  • The silicone surfactants market held a market share of USD 160.2 Million in the year 2018. It is projected to witness a growth rate of 5.2% during the forecast period.
  • In context to Product Type, the Water-soluble segment generated a higher revenue of USD 108.9 Million in 2018 with a faster CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. Factors like increasing demand for water-based skincare products, which is resultant of its traits like quick absorption, minimal pore-clogging, and lightweight formula contributes to the revenue generated by this segment.
  • In regards to Application, the Emulsifiers segment occupied the largest market share of 29.0% in 2018, with the fastest CAGR of 6.0% during the forecast period. The market share held by the Emulsifiers segment is attributed to elevating demand for emulsifiers from different end-user industries like the construction sector, the cosmetics industry. The traits of silicone, like effective minimization of the surface tension, has resulted in its increased application as emulsifiers, which contributes to the growth rate of this segment.
  • In regards to region, North America held the second-largest market share of0% in 2018, with a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period. The market share held by North America is resultant of the elevated awareness about eco-friendly products and increasing demand for personal care products that possess minimal toxic substances.
