Agricultural Surfactants Market is estimated to be US$ 2.6 billion by 2032 with a CAGR of 7.2% over the forecast period (2022-2032)

Published Date: April 2023

Agriculture surfactants help famers to use pesticides more efficiently, as surfactants minimize the water surface tension so that the pesticides keep the spray on the targeted rather than mixing into the water. Agricultural surfactants are blended with agrochemicals to improve the spread of spray droplets on the surface of leaves and maximize the duration of spray droplets. Increasing demand for agrochemicals due to adoption of precision farming and cultivation is likely to drive the market growth.

The surfactants segment goes hand in hand with the crop protection chemicals, fertilizers, micronutrients, plant growth regulators, etc. Surfactants are used with herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, etc. that enables their function and utility. Thus, the increasing sales of crop protection chemicals have stimulated the demand for surfactants and the trend is expected to continue.
