Bio surfactants are amphiphilic compounds which are produced in microbial cell surfaces or excreted extracellular hydrophobic & hydrophilic moieties that provide ability to bind fluid phases resulting in reducing surface and interfacial tension. This product offers persuading attributes including less toxicity, biodegradability and ecofriendly. Various types of bio surfactants available in the market include Rhamnolipids, Sophorolipids, Methyl Ethyl Sulfonates [MES], Alkyl Polyglucosides [APG], Sorbitan Esters, Sucrose Esters, Lipopeptides.

Conventional surfactants are widely utilized in agricultural, industrial, food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics application. Product industry growth is supported by declining demand for conventional surfactants including glycerides due to rise in environmental degradation, toxicity problem and fluctuating crude oil prices.

Asia Pacific bioremediation market size is anticipated to surpass CAGR of 16% between 2018 to 2026. Widening opportunities for the market is attributed to growing utilization of bioremediation methods in order to detoxify pollutants. Sophorolipids, APG and Lipopeptides are the major biosurfactants utilized for bioremediation methods owing to superior emulsification of oils, lowering of interfacial tension, dispersion of oils and corrosion inhibition in fuel oils & equipment and soil flushing.  

Market opportunities obtained through supportive Chinese government regulations including implementation of Market Authorisation Holder (MAH) enables new avenues for biomanufacturing in the region. This regulation will help Chinese biomanufacturers to facilitate utilisation of contract manufacturing. Asia-Pacific biosurfactants product market size is imputed to growing contract manufacturing in the region due to vast raw material availability and lower production cost.
