Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Household Soaps and Detergents

- Detergent is usually a mixture of surfactants, used mainly for the purpose of cleaning, and is available in varying dilutions. Detergents consist of alkylbenzenesulfonates, which have chemical properties similar to soap, but with higher solubility in hard water.
- Detergents are classified in terms of their ionic properties, namely anionic, cationic, and non-ionic. The soap mentioned in the segmentation deals mainly with washing and laundry applications.
- The surfactants incorporated in detergents and soaps mix with water, and attach themselves with the dirt on clothes and other cleaning surfaces. This helps reduce the surface tension and removes the dirt from the concerned surface.
- The major application of detergents is reflected in household cleaning and fuel additives.
- North America accounts for 1/3 of the global manufacturing for soaps and detergents. United States and Canada account for majority of the manufacturing and consumption of soaps and detergents.
