Global Biosurfactants Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 6.9 billion by 2027


The Global Biosurfactants Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 6.9 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of around 4.7%.

Biosurfactants are referred to as the group of the amphiphilic surface active molecules, which possess excellent ability to emulsify and minimize the surface and interfacial tension. Biosurfactant are classified on the basis of their origin i.e. bacteria, actinomycetes, and fungi, which inherit the anti-adhesive properties. It has gained popularity as a wetting agent, foaming agent, and emulsifier across agriculture, food processing, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics, among others application areas. Biosurfactant is extensively used owing to its excellent properties such biodegradability, low toxicity, better digestibility, and environmental compatibility.


Market Drivers:

  • Rise in Environmental Concerns

Surfactants are used across the globe for different purpose across commercial laundries and industrial operations. These molecules are often released into the natural water bodies through various manufacturing plants causing marine pollution. The toxicity of the surfactants results into the environmental degradation. With growing awareness towards reducing hazardous impact of the conventional surfactants is driving the demand for biodegradable alternative. The rising demand for eco-friendly alternatives over the chemical surfactants to minimize the environmental degradation is further fueling the biosurfactant market growth.

  • Growing Demand from End-Use Industries

Surfactant are the surface active molecules widely used across the cosmetics, agriculture, food processing, soaps and detergents production and may other application areas. These are used in agriculture sector to maintain wettability and texture of soil. In pharmaceutical sector, Biosurfactants has gained higher popularity as antitumor, haemolytic, antifungal and antiviral agent for treating fatal and infectious diseases. Cosmetics and personal care products has Biosurfactants as key ingredient for cleansing, foaming, thickening, emulsifying agent with antimicrobial effects. With growing demand for agricultural produce owing to growing population coupled with higher demand for cosmetic products owing higher focus towards enhancing personal aesthetics is driving the demand for Biosurfactants.

Market Restraint:

  • High cost of production

Biosurfactants are obtained from the microbial source through biodegradation process. The microbes use the water-immiscible substrate for synthesis of the Biosurfactants. However, the large scale production requires high cost input owing to higher cost associated with the down streaming process in order to obtain Biosurfactants with minimal or no impurities. Due to this, the production cost of the Biosurfactants escalates and thus hampers its demand and overall market growth.
