United States agricultural surfactants market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 7% during the forecast period. Surfactant is a soapy substance which helps in reducing the surface tension of the water. Surfactants minimize the water surface tension so that the pesticides can keep the spray targeted rather than mixing into the water. Agricultural surfactants blended with agrochemicals improve the spread of spray droplets on the surface of leaves and maximize the duration of spray droplets. Agricultural surfactants also increase the proficiency of pesticides.

Growing adoption of precision agriculture and rising demand for green solutions are the major factors driving the United States agricultural surfactants market. Additionally, agricultural surfactants improve wettability, spreading ability, retention and penetration in leaf surface, which is further fuelling their demand. Moreover, changing farming methods and adoption of new technologies are anticipated to propel growth in the market in the coming years.

United States agricultural surfactants market is segmented based on type, substrate type, crop type, crop application, application, company and region. Based on type, the market can be fragmented into anionic, cationic, non-anionic and amphoteric. The non-anionic segment is expected to dominate the market during forecast period on account of their low toxicity and stability in cold water. Additionally, these are good dispersing agents. Based on substrate type, the market can be divided into synthetic and bio-based. The synthetic segment holds a significant market share since most of the agriculture surfactants are petroleum based and are synthetic in nature. Based on application, the market can be categorized into insecticide, herbicide, fungicide and others. The fungicides segment is expected to witness growth during forecast period on account of increasing use of surfactants in formulation to enhance fungicide adhesion to crops. Additionally, surfactants increase the efficacy of fungicide and helps to stick on plant surface.

The major players operating in the agricultural surfactants market are Stepan Company, Bayer (Monsanto Company), Loveland Products, Inc., DuPont de Nemours, Inc., BASF Corporation, Huntsman Corporation, Helena Agri-Enterprises, LLC, Wilbur-Ellis Co LLC, Croda International, Akzo Nobel N.V. and others. Major companies are launching new products in order to stay competitive in the market. Other competitive strategies include mergers & acquisitions and new product developments. For instance, in 2018, Stephan company announced acquisition of BASF Mexicana S.A. DE C.V. surfactant production facility in Ecatepec, Mexico. Through this acquisition, Stephan expanded its production capacity and attained a strong market position in Mexico.
