Surfactants & Disinfectants

Surfactants are organic chemicals with both hydrophobic and hydrophilic ends that allow oil molecules to dissolve in water. Surfactants have a wide range of applications in various industries owing to their properties such as detergency, emulsion, foam formation, and dispersion stabilization. Disinfectants are fast-acting chemical agents that inactivate or kill microorganisms on inert surfaces. They witnessed an increased demand during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Biobased surfactants, such as rhamnolipids and bioremediation, are also in demand across the globe. Rhamnolipids, produced from Pseudomonas aeruginosa, belong to the glycolipid biosurfactant category, featuring high biodegradability, low-toxicity & environmental-friendly characteristics. Rhamnolipids improve the biodegradation efficiency of oils, normal alkanes, polyaromatic hydrocarbons, and biomarkers. They are highly effective in removing toxic & carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons or PAHs as well as heavy metals & pesticide pollutants.

The primary trends driving the market are the development in economical production techniques, increasing demand for homecare & personal care products, high demand for biobased products, and increasing prevalence of hospital-acquired infections. The factors affecting the industry scenario include market innovations & sustainability, chemical industries guidelines, and import-export trade restrictions.
