Biosurfactants Market size Expected to Reach $2.67 Bn by 2022

Press Release   •   Jan 30, 2018 01:37 EST

Global biosurfactants market is expected to witness positive growth within the forecast period on account of increasing government incentives for the adoption of bio-based products. Biosurfactants are defined as surface active biomolecules produced by a wide range of microorganisms with unique environment-friendly properties. Biosurfactants can potentially replace virtually any synthetic surfactant and, moreover, introduce some unique physicochemical properties. They have the unique property of reducing the surface and interfacial tension of liquids. Biosurfactants are found to be eco-friendly and also an alternative for complicated remediation techniques for cleanup of heavy metals pollution globally.

Biosurfactants Market

Growing government incentives and favorable policies for the adoption and application of bio-based products is expected to be the major driving factor of the global biosurfactants market. Moreover, the technological innovations coupled with the commercialization of biosurfactants have also been aiding the growth of the biosurfactants market. Rising awareness about the benefits of bio-based and adverse results of chemical surfactants is expected to surge the demand for biosurfactants in the years to come. However, the lack of awareness and knowledge about biosurfactants coupled with high cost of the product is expected to be a major restraint for the global biosurfactants market. Technological advancements and favorable government policies for using naturally derived surfactants over chemically derived product are expected to provide growth opportunities for the key players in the market over the coming years.

The biosurfactants market can be segmented into categories by product types such as glycolipid (rhamnolipids, trehalolipids, and sophorolipids), lipopeptides and lipoproteins, surfactin and lichenysin, and polymeric biosurfactants. Glycolipid accounted for the largest share of the global biosurfactants market in 2016. This can be attributed to the wide range of applications of glycolipid such as (rhamnolipids, trehalolipids, and sophorolipids). sophorolipids and rhamnolipids sub-segments of glycolipid segment are expected to register remarkable growth within the forecast period owing to their wide range of applications in the household and commercial fields.
