DUBLIN, May 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/8z3cxw/amphoteric) has announced the addition of the "Amphoteric Surfactant Market by Application & by Type - Global Trends & Forecast to 2019" report to their offering.
The global amphoteric surfactant market is projected to increase by 4% annually, to reach 741 kilotons by 2018. The amphoteric surfactants can be segmented into betaines, amine oxide, amphoacetates, amphopropionates, and sultaines. Although betaines are a mature market when compared to other amphoteric surfactants, they are growing at a rapid pace.
Amphoteric surfactants are segmented on the basis of their types, applications, and regions. Amphoteric surfactants are used in various applications, such as personal care, home care, I&I, oil filed chemicals, and agriculture adjuvants.
The Asia-Pacific region is the largest market for amphoteric surfactants. The vast population in these regions is driving the growth of personal care, home care, and I&I industries in the Asia-Pacific region, which in turn are driving the amphoteric surfactant market. The personal care industry is the main application of amphoteric surfactants. The growing demand for the use of milder and sulfur-free surfactants in personal care products is driving the amphoteric surfactants demand in this industry.
Europe and North America are projected to have a decent growth from 2013 to 2018 due to their growing personal care, home care, and I&I industries. North America is also experiencing high consumption of amphoteric surfactants in the oil and gas industry with the growing shale gas and their fracking activities.
This report estimates the market size of the amphoteric surfactant market in terms of value and volume. The report provides an all-inclusive assessment of key market drivers, challenges, and burning issues. The market is further segmented and projected for key regions, such as North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and ROW.
