In the surfactant industry, anionic surfactants (referred to as SAA) are the class of surfactants which was developed earliest and has the largest output and the most varieties, mainly including carboxylic acid salts, sulfonic acid salts, sulfuric acid (ester) salts, phosphoric acid (ester) salts and amino acid salts, of which sulfonic acid salts and sulfuric acid salts have the largest output and are most widely used. (Those two groups mainly include sodium dodecyl benzene sulfonate (LAS), sodium fatty alcohol polyoxyethylene ether sulfate (AES), sodium fatty alcohol sulfate (AS), ammonium fatty alcohol ether sulfate (AESA), ammonium fatty alcohol sulfate (LSA) and sodium alpha-olefin sulfonate (AOS).) By output, the second largest type is the carboxylic acid salts, such as fatty acids' sodium, calcium and other metal salts; fatly acid sodium salts are mainly used as soap, which has an annual output of XXX XXX tons in China in recent years; and the calcium and other salts are mainly used in industrial areas - for example, calcium stearate is mainly used in the plastics industry. As the oldest surfactants, fatty acid salts are often not thought of within the scope of modern surface active agents. Other anionic surfactants also include fatty alcohol (ether) phosphates (MAP), fatty alcohol ether carboxylates (AEC), sulfosuccinate salts, amino acid salts, and so on. In recent years, China's surfactant industry has developed fast. Some of its equipment and technology have reached international advanced levels; and its product yield, type and quality have seen significant growth or improvement.
Table X lists the output, net import and apparent consumption of surfactants in China from 2005 to 2010, based upon the China Cleaning industry Association's statistics and the General Administration of Customs' import and export data.

As shown in Table X, the output, net import and apparent consumption of surfac tants in China were constantly growing during 2005-2010, except in 2008; and the share of anionic surfactants (SAA) within the total surfactant output reached XX% to XX% during 2005-2008 but fell to XX.X% in 2009, because the output of non-ionic surfactants soared to XXX XXX tons.
X. Output of alcohol-type anionic surfactants increased steadily
"Alcohol-type anionic surfactants" refers to sodium salts (such as AS and AES) and ammonium salts (such as LSA and AESA) of fatty alcohols (ethers) produced by sulfating fatty alcohols or fatty alcohol ethers with [SO.sub.X] and then neutralizing the resultants with NaOH or NHXOH. China's output of major alcohol-type anionic surfactants in recent years is itemized in Table X.

As shown in Table X, the output of alcohol-type anionic surfactants in China increased year by year in 2005-2009, having an average annual growth rate of XX.X%; the output of AES and AS grew year by year in 2005-2009, having an average annual growth rate of XX.X% and XX.X%, respectively; the proportion of AESA and LSA in the total output declined; and the output of AES was largest, reaching a proportion of more than XX%o, which is expected to increase in the future.
X. Industrial concentration continued to improve
Major producers' contributions to the total alcohol-type anionic surfactant output from 2005 to 2009 are shown in Table X.
