A key factor driving the growth of the market is the increasing demand for polyurethane foam. Polyurethane foam is highly used in certain end-user industries such as construction, textiles, automotive, paints and coatings, furniture, and packaging. In the production of polyurethane foams, silicone surfactants are used owing to their emulsifying properties and excellent foaming and dispersing abilities. Silicone surfactants are used to stabilize the foam cells in the flexible polyurethane foaming process. The increasing usage of polyurethane foams as insulating and sealing materials is driving its demand in the construction industry, subsequently driving the demand for silicone surfactants.
As per Technavio, the growing demand from niche applications will have a positive impact on the market and contribute to its growth significantly over the forecast period. This research report also analyzes other important trends and market drivers that will affect market growth over 2019-2023.
Global silicone surfactants market: Growing demand from niche applications
Primary factors driving growth of the market can be attributed to the growing use of silicone surfactants in applications such as agriculture, paints, and coatings. Silicone surfactants are used to enhance the spreadability of the formulations when they are applied in agricultural chemicals. Silicone surfactants exhibit excellent efficacy when they are applied to a substrate, due to which they are extensively used in herbicidal formulations and ready-to-use agricultural products.
“Silicone surfactants have antimicrobial properties and help in improving wetting, spreading, and penetration of agricultural chemicals. It is also used as a formulation ingredient in water-soluble broadleaf insecticides, fungicides, and plant growth regulators,” says an analyst at Technavio for research on diversified chemicals.
