Market Overview       

The global Biosurfactants market accounted for USD 2.2 Billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 3.1 Billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of around 4.5% between 2021 and 2028.     

Biosurfactants are also known as microbial surfactants Biosurfactants are amphiphilic compounds. Surface active biomolecules formed by microorganisms with special environmental-friendly properties are referred to as these. Detergents, wetting agents, foaming agents, and emulsifiers are also examples of biosurfactants. Biosurfactants have the ability to replace almost any synthetic surfactant while still adding new physicochemical properties. Biosurfactants are appealing to customers because of their unusual properties such as low toxicity, precision, high biodegradability, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. Biosurfactants increase the surface area of hydrophobic water-insoluble substrates, which organisms use for growth, and function effectively in biodegradation, bioremediation, and biocontrol processes.

The bio surfactant industry has a significant growth opportunity, owing to rising environmental considerations, advances in biotechnology, and the advent of more strict regulations, which have made biosurfactants a viable alternative to chemical surfactants on the market.  

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Due to government-imposed lockdowns to prevent the spreading of COVID, the global biosurfactants industry has seen a small decrease in revenues in the short term. Because of the increasing infections and curbs, sales of biosurfactants are likely to suffer across the world. Because of the pandemic, agrochemicals, oilfield chemicals, garment processing facilities, and its shipping have been shut down around the world, potentially reducing biosurfactant use. However, in the midst of the pandemic, there has been a surge in product demand for applications such as domestic detergents, personal care, and industrial cleaners. The growing trend for sanitation in residential and commercial spaces to control the virus epidemic is driving this product market.  

The restrictions imposed by various nations to contain COVID had stopped the production resulting in a disruption across the whole supply chain. However, the global markets are slowly opening to their full potential and theirs a surge in demand of auto parts of the vehicles. The market would remain bullish in upcoming year.  The significant decrease in the global Biosurfactants market size in 2020 is estimated on the basis of the COVID-19 outbreak and its negative impact on the economies and industries across the globe. Various scenarios have been analyzed on the basis of inputs from various secondary sources and the current data available about the situation.


Growth Factors

Biosurfactant industry growth is driven and supported by increased customer recognition and demand for bio-based materials, as well as the eco-friendly nature of Biosurfactant. Biosurfactants are expected to see increased demand in a variety of uses, including soaps and detergents, personal care, and industrial cleaning. The need for regulatory reforms as a result of the advesrse effects of synthetic surfactants and preservatives in forcing core operating companies to incorporate revolutionary biosurfactants and natural preservatives obtained from natural sources into personal care products. During the forecast period, factors such as high production, refining, and purification costs may restrict the growth of the global biosurfactants market.
