The global biosurfactants market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020.

Looking forward, the analyst expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end-use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Biosurfactants are active compounds made using bacteria, yeasts, and filamentous fungi. They offer several advantages over their synthetic counterparts, which include low toxicity, high biodegradability, and ease of preparation. As a result, they are employed in the textile, chemicals, mining, agriculture, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, and food and beverage (F&B) industries worldwide as wetting agents and functional ingredients. Besides this, as they enhance the solubility and reduce interfacial surface tension, biosurfactants are also utilized as emulsifiers in fossil fuel recovery from petroleum tank bottom sludges and in the bioremediation of heavy crude oil. Biosurfactants Market Trends:
The rising need for enhancing crop productivity represents one of the key factors positively influencing the utilization of biosurfactants in the agriculture industry. Biosurfactants are used for hydrophilization of heavy soils to obtain good wettability and evenly distribute fertilizer in the soil. Moreover, growing environmental concerns and increasing risks associated with chemical surfactants are catalyzing the demand for ecofriendly biosurfactants, which are further used in the manufacturing of commercials laundry detergents. Apart from this, as various biosurfactants have strong antibacterial, antifungal, and antivirus properties, they are gaining traction in the pharmaceutical industry as therapeutic and probiotic agents to treat diseases like cancer. Due to the increasing consumer inclination towards organic and natural cosmetic products, biosurfactants are also being used as foaming agents, solubilizers, and cleansers in anti-dandruff shampoos, mascara, lipsticks, and bathing products. Other factors, including escalating demand for packaged food products and rising oil and gas exploration activities, are anticipated to drive the market.
