Biosurfactants Market size to exceed $2.4bn by 2025

Biosurfactants Market size is set to surpass USD 2.4 billion by 2025; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.

Biosurfactants are natural surfactants which are produced extracellularly by various microorganisms such as yeast, bacteria and fungi. Saccharomyces lipolytica, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida lipolytica, and Bacillus salmalaya are the common microorganisms used to produce biosurfactants. These products consist of a polar hydrophilic part which can be an amino acid, phosphate group or a carbohydrate and a non-polar hydrophobic part which are long-chain fatty acids. Rising concerns regarding the adverse effects of synthetic surfactants such as skin irritation should stimulate industry demand.

Significant bio-based product demand in Europe to stimulate biosurfactants industry growth

Rising environmental awareness and demand for biodegradable products in Europe should drive product adoption in the region. Germany biosurfactants market size should surpass USD 325 million by 2025. Consumers in the region increasingly prefer bio-based products due to the rising awareness of climate change and resource depletion which is driving the market. Biosurfactants can be easily degraded by microbes, are eco-friendly, biocompatible and essential for the cleanup of oil spills by stimulating the degradation of hydrocarbons, thus escalating market demand.

There are growing concerns regarding the adverse environmental impacts of synthetic detergents which represents ample market growth potential. The European Union has passed stringent regulations to reduce the environmental impacts of detergents and surfactants. EU Regulation 259/2012 imposes curbs on the sale of detergents contains excessive phosphate ingredients while Regulation 648/2004 requires that surfactants be easily biodegradable to prevent ecological damage.

The growing health & environmental concerns regarding petroleum-based ingredients in cosmetic products should drive the market. Germany beauty & personal care market size surpassed USD 16 billion in 2019 owing to changing consumer lifestyles which is driving the market. Biosurfactants offer comparable properties to synthetic hydrocarbons, have a safer production process, produce less emissions and are nontoxic. Their beneficial skin hydrating, foaming, emulsifying, and antimicrobial properties increase their suitability as cosmetic ingredients.

Various manufacturers are commercializing biosurfactant production to achieve industrial scale manufacture, reduce costs and achieve high market shares. The primary participants in the biosurfactants industry are Evonik Industries, BASF Cognis, Soliance, Mitsubishi Chemical, Lion Corporation, Henkel Corporation, and Kao Chemicals.
