Growing demand for biosurfactants in various applications including soaps and detergents, personal care and industrial cleaning is expected to drive the industry outlook. Rising awareness among consumers towards eco-friendly alternatives in personal care and cosmetic products will boost the industry demand over the forecast timeframe.
 

Rising consumer preference towards the usage of bio-based products, particularly in Europe and North America is expected to propel the industry trends. The industry is booming due to environmentally friendly, non-toxic and biodegradability properties. Thus, biosurfactants creates an advantage over synthetic surfactants, which will persuade surfactant manufacturers to enter the biosurfactants business.
 

These products are predominantly utilized by end-users owing to its eco-friendly attributes and complaint with norms directed by authorities monitoring synthetic chemicals environmental effects. For instance, The European Commission gave a mandate (M/491) to CEN/TC-276 to define biosurfactants to enhance EU bio-based economy. The objective for CEN/TC-276 is to elaborate the standards for surface- active agents and detergents for any application in every sector.
 

Surfactants manufactured and imported in the European Union are registered with European Chemical Agency (ECHA). Detergent regulation (EC) No 648/2004 states that surfactants used in detergents should be biodegradable under aerobic conditions as per OECD 301 test series.
 

Owing to rising product demand globally, manufacturers are introducing innovative products to cater wide customer base. For instance, In August 2015, BASF and Solazyme introduced a new product which is a microalgae derived betaine surfactant and is commercially available for use in personal care and house hold applications. The product is sold under the trade name Dehyton AO 45, which is made from renewable microalgae oil.
 

However, high production cost incurred by biosurfactants manufacturers is one of the major factors negatively impacting biosurfactant market growth. Industrial- scale manufacturing of biosurfactants have has not been undertaken due to high investment cost. Environmental factors are significant in the production and characteristics of biosurfactants produced.
 

In order to manufacture excessive quantity of biosurfactants, it is essential to maintain the type, quantity, and quality of the product, and optimize the process conditions as manufacturing of biosurfactants are affected by variables including temperature, pH, agitation speed, aeration, dilution rate, nature of carbon and nitrogen sources, and concentration of metal ions.
 

Coronavirus pandemic has led to imposition of travel ban and shutdown of manufacturing units, offices & marketplaces by governments all over the world, that has led to value chain disruptions throughout. This has adversely affected raw materials supply for producing biosurfactants. This pandemic has led to global lockdown of agricultural chemicals, oilfield chemicals, textiles manufacturing plants and transportation which may decrease biosurfactants utilization.  
 

But there has been exorbitant product demand for applications including household detergents, personal care and industrial cleaners in the wake of pandemic. This product demand is predominantly due to rising trend for sanitation in residential and commercial spaces to contain the virus outbreak.
