According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Biosurfactants Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global biosurfactants market size reached US$ 2.4 Billion in 2021. Biosurfactants refer to active compounds that are generally produced by microorganisms, such as yeasts, bacteria and filamentous fungi. They are surface-active biomolecules that are formed at the microbial cell surface or excreted, which provide them numerous advantages, including high biodegradability and low toxicity, while enabling them to remain active at extreme pH and salinity levels. Besides this, they are considered to be amphiphilic microbial molecules that possess both hydrophobic and hydrophilic parts, which allows them to aggregate at interfaces between fluids with different polarities, such as water and hydrocarbons. Due to their unique functional properties, they are widely used in several industries as emulsifiers and demulsifiers, foaming and wetting and spreading agents, functional food ingredients and detergents.
Global Biosurfactants Market Trends:
The global market is primarily driven by significant growth in the chemical industry. With the rising concerns regarding the environment and the growing need for reducing reliance on fossil fuels, there has been a considerable increase in the demand for biosurfactants across the industrial sector. In line with this, numerous initiatives undertaken by the governments of several countries to promote the uptake of green and sustainable products are, in turn, creating a positive market outlook. There has been a considerable rise in the adoption of biosurfactants in the field of bioremediation as well as in the food and beverage and agriculture industries due to their low toxicity levels and biodegradability properties. Along with this, the widespread product utilization across the oil and gas sector for the recovery of residual crude oil is providing an impetus to the market. Moreover, the rising product utilization in the formulation of anti-dandruff shampoos and bathing products on account of the presence of antibacterial and antifungal properties is significantly supporting the demand for biosurfactants on the global level. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market size is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 3.4 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.92% during 2022-2027.
