Latin America Surfactants Market Size (2023-2028):

The Latin America Surfactants Market size was around USD 6.23 billion in 2023. It is expected to grow at 6.5% CAGR to reach USD 8.21 billion by 2028.

Market Overview:

Surfactants are compounds that reduce surface tension between two liquids or gas and liquid or liquid and solid. Surfactants may be used as detergents, wetting agents, emulsifiers, foaming agents, and dispersants. Surfactants have both hydrophilic (Head) and hydrophobic (Tail) groups, hence are amphiphilic in nature. The water-insoluble oil particles are trapped between the surfactants molecules forming a sphere-like structure, known as a micelle, with heads on the outside and a long chain of tails attached to the oil particles inside the micelle.
