  • Report Description
  • Summary

Silicone surfactants are copolymers of silicone and polyether’s. The molecules comprising silicone surfactants consist of a linear hydrophobic silicone backbone, partly grafted by non-ionic polar chains, such as ethylene oxide and propylene oxide. They are widely used in industrial applications owing to high surface activity. Silicone surfactants have recently been shown to enhance the efficiency of microemulsions. They improve the emulsification of the raw materials, providing sufficient nucleation and stabilising the foam expansion. Moreover, surface active silicone compounds are extensively used in personal care, oil and gas, coatings, polyurethane foams and agriculture applications.

Silicone Surfactants Market Outlook

The global silicone surfactants market is witnessing remarkable growth owing to rising demand from the personal care and other end-use industries. Furthermore, the overall market is also being propelled by increasing demand for polyurethane (PU) foams globally. The market is further boosted by technological advancements in the production of silicone surfactants by various vendors across the globe. However, the global silicone surfactants market is hampered by stringent environmental regulations against the use of conventional surfactants and high cost of silicone surfactants.
