Surfactants Business Essentials Training Course | 15 September 2020

Discover more about the surfactants industry, its key market segments and more

Time has tested the strength of the surfactants industry. It has braved many challenges triggered by sluggish economic growth, global overcapacity, and increasing environmental regulations. Some key players capitalized on vertical integration, mergers and acquisition to redefine their position in the market. In times like this, a clear view of the surfactants business plays an integral part to succeed amidst changing dynamics.

The Surfactants Business Essentials training course is a one-day course which offers a non-technical view of the surfactants industry, giving you a sound understanding of value chains, costs and prices, and where opportunities and challenges lie, to help you make smart decisions in this sector.
