Zion Research has published a new report titled “Microbial Biosurfactants Market (Rhamnolipids, Sophorolipids, Mannosylerythritol Lipids (MEL) and other) for Household Detergents, Industrial & Institutional Cleaners, Personal Care, Oilfield Chemicals, Agricultural Chemicals, Food Processing, Textile and Other Applications: Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis and Forecast 2014 – 2020.” According to the report, the global microbial biosurfactants market was valued at USD 13.5 million in 2014 and is anticipated to reach around USD 17.5 million by 2020, growing at a CAGR of around 4% between 2014 and 2020. In terms of volume, the global microbial biosurfactants market stood at 150 tons in 2014.
Sophorolipids, emulsifiers, rhamnolipids, and surfactant are amphiphilic compounds produced on living surfaces, mostly microbial cell surfaces, or excreted extracellularly and contain hydrophobic and hydrophilic moieties that reduce surface tension (ST) and interfacial tensions between individual molecules at the surface and interface, respectively. A large variety of microorganisms produce potent surface-active agents (microbial biosurfactants). Microbial biosurfactants possesses different chemical properties and molecular size. While the low molecular weight surfactants are often glycolipids, the high molecular weight surfactants are generally either polyanionic heteropolysaccharides containing covalently-linked hydrophobic side chains or complexes containing both polysaccharides and proteins. The yield of the biosurfactant to a great extent depends on the nutritional environment of the growing organism. The vast diversity of biosurfactants makes them an attractive group of resources for application in many areas such as agriculture, public health, food, health care, waste utilization, and environmental pollution control such as in degradation of hydrocarbons present in soil.

Sophorolipids, emulsifiers, rhamnolipids, are the key product segments of microbial biosurfactnats. Sophorolipids dominated the global microbial biosurfactants market with around 50% share of the total volume consumed in 2014. Higher yield of sophorolipids has been resulted into its increasing popularity among the manufacturers as well as end users. Microbial biosurfactants are excellent cleaners. Rhamnolipids are gaining popularity for various applications such as bioremediation and improved oil recovery.
Household detergents, industrial & institutional cleaners, personal care, oilfield chemicals, agricultural chemicals, food processing, textile and other are key application industry for microbial biosurfactant. Microbial biosurfactant market is mainly driven by household detergents. Household detergents accounted for over 40% share of the total market in 2014. Increasing environmental concerns and growing awareness regarding the same among manufacturers and end-users is resulted into paradigm shifting from the synthetic chemical-based products to bio-based products. In the next few years, personal care application segment is expected to be the fastest growing application as compared to other application.
Microbial biosurfactant market is growing across the world. North America Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa are the key regional markets for microbial biosurfactant. Europe is the leading regional market for microbial biosurfactant owing to its strong demand and accounted for 54.7% of total market. It is also expected to be the fastest growing region during the forcast period. Europe was followed by North America which is expected to grow at CAGR of 5.6% during forecast period.
Some of the key industry participants in microbial biosurfactant market include MG Intobio, Ecover, Saraya, Soliance, AGAE Technologies, SyntheZyme LLC and Jeneil Biotech.
