Considering surfactant consumption by product type, anionic and non-ionic surfactants are estimated to constitute the largest share in 2012 and are expected to be the largest segment by 2017. From the viewpoint of surfactant consumption by applications, soap/detergent is the largest market for surfactant consumption as of the year 2012 and is estimated to remain the highest surfactant consuming segment by 2017.

Hazardous environmental impacts, eco-friendly tag of bio-based surfactants might lead to slow growth of synthetic surfactants in the future. However, broadened application areas of surfactants across all industries, and easy availability of synthetic surfactants would keep them in demand in the near future. The overall surfactant demand in the near future would depend on certain factors such as increased applications areas and increasing demand from various industrial segments, newer/alternative products with compatible price range, substrate availability, environmental laws and regulations, increasing surfactant consumption in developing countries, increasing awareness towards eco-friendly products, etc. Global surfactant consumption is expected to grow at an estimated CAGR of 6.01% from 2012 to 2017.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered.
