ABSTRACT
This article looks at the state of the surfactants market in 2006. The glut of production in Asia, due on stream in the middle of 2007, is likely to have a dulling effect in Europe, as cheap imports arrive. Mahesh Kumar, senior research analyst at Frost and Sullivan, notes that the surfactants market has stable demand, but the big problem is profitability. Surfactant producers struggle to pass on ethylene price rises to customers, and tend to take the price increases on themselves, squeezing their margins as a result.
