Today Anionic Surfactant Supplier introduces the development trend of anionic surfactants.
(1) The overall consumption will continue to increase steadily.
With the development of China's national economy and the improvement of residents' income levels, detergents, cosmetics and other industries that are closely related to people's lives will develop rapidly. The application and expansion of surfactants in the industrial field has greatly increased the market demand for surfactants and stimulated the innovation and development of surfactants. The improvement of China's comprehensive economic strength will increase the international competitiveness of Chinese products, and the export of surfactants will also increase rapidly. Therefore, the production and consumption of surfactants in China will continue to grow rapidly, steadily, and the overall market outlook will continue to be promising.
(2) Excess capacity and fierce competition will be inevitable
Although China ’s total consumption of anionic surfactants will continue to grow steadily, production capacity expansion will be faster, and overcapacity has emerged, and competition among surfactant manufacturing companies will become more intense. Therefore, the reshuffle of the industry, industrial integration, and corporate restructuring will be inevitable. In view of this situation, enterprises should continue to develop new products, improve production processes, improve product quality, strengthen internal management of enterprises, focus on brand building, reduce costs and consumption, improve the overall competitiveness of enterprises, and achieve innovation and achieve enterprise and transformation and upgrading. Product structure adjustment. At the same time, enterprises should also strengthen cooperation, strengthen exchanges, avoid vicious competition, establish a healthy competitive environment, and achieve the healthy development of the industry.
(3) The development of new surfactants will become a trend
First, people's requirements for quality of life are getting higher and higher, and the products they use are more specialized, refined and diversified. Functionality and safety will become the development trend of surfactants. In household detergents and cosmetics, it is required to provide surfactants with mild properties, low irritation, good detergency, good hard water resistance, and good low temperature washability.
Second, with the continuous improvement of science and technology, the application of Anionic Surfactant in the high-tech field is becoming wider and wider, and its application fields have been expanded to energy, new materials, biology, life sciences, separation, microelectronic technology, universe, ocean, etc. For this reason, traditional surfactants have been difficult to meet the requirements, coupled with fierce competition in the industry, the surfactant industry will certainly pay more attention to technological innovation and new product development. Therefore, new surfactants will continue to emerge in the next few years, the product structure will be further optimized, and new products with excellent or unique properties will be more developed and applied.
(4) Pay attention to the renewable nature of raw materials
With the growth of the global population and the consumption of non-renewable resources, the use of natural renewable resources as raw materials to produce surfactants with excellent performance and competitive price will receive more attention and rapid development. From the overall development trend, it is an inevitable trend and direction to use natural oils, starches, proteins, sugars and other raw materials to replace petrochemical raw materials to produce new surfactants. The industry should increase research and development and application promotion.
(5) Attention to product safety and environmental friendliness
In order to meet people's increasing requirements for environmental protection, when developing and using surfactants, more attention should be paid to the cost-effectiveness of the product, as well as the safety and environmental friendliness of the product. Product safety mainly refers to reducing the toxicity of the product itself and the residual amount of harmful substances; environmental friendliness mainly includes two aspects: first, the development of products with good environmental compatibility, low pollution, and easily biodegradable; second, Pay attention to the simple production process, feasible operation, clean production process, low energy consumption and low pollution emissions, and strive to achieve green production.
Generally speaking, China's surfactant industry has established a relatively complete production and R & D system. However, the sustained and rapid development of the national economy and high and new technologies has put forward higher requirements for the variety, quantity and quality of surfactants.
