Description


Microbial-derived surfactants or microbial biosurfactants are surface-active compounds produced by a variety of microbes from renewable feedstock. These surfactants replace their synthetic counterparts as they are derived from renewable feedstock with better quality or efficiency. Major microbial biosurfactants used in the industry include rhamnolipids, sophorolipids, surfactin and emulsan. Microbial surfactants have excellent emulsifying, dispersing and foaming properties. They are effective at extreme pH, temperatures and salinity. Therefore, microbial biosurfactants are used in major application segments such as detergents, personal care, enhanced oil recovery, agrochemicals and bioremediation.

Increasing demand for green cleaning products coupled with favorable regulatory outlook in developed countries is expected to drive the global microbial biosurfactants market. However, high prices of microbial biosurfactants as compared to plant-derived and synthetic counterparts are likely to hamper market growth during the forecast period.

Microbial-derived surfactants or microbial biosurfactants are surface-active compounds produced by a variety of microbes from renewable feedstock. These surfactants replace their synthetic counterparts as they are derived from renewable feedstock with better quality or efficiency. Major microbial biosurfactants used in the industry include rhamnolipids, sophorolipids, surfactin and emulsan. Microbial surfactants have excellent emulsifying, dispersing and foaming properties. They are effective at extreme pH, temperatures and salinity. Therefore, microbial biosurfactants are used in major application segments such as detergents, personal care, enhanced oil recovery, agrochemicals and bioremediation.

Increasing demand for green cleaning products coupled with favorable regulatory outlook in developed countries is expected to drive the global microbial biosurfactants market. However, high prices of microbial biosurfactants as compared to plant-derived and synthetic counterparts are likely to hamper market growth during the forecast period. Application of microbial biosurfactants in enhanced oil recovery and bioremediation is anticipated to open up immense opportunities in the next few years.

Sophorolipids emerged as the largest microbial biosurfactants in 2012, accounting for more than 50% of the global market in 2012. These are the most preferred surfactants for commercialization due to high production yields. It is expected to be the fastest growing product segment during the forecast period. Rhamnolipids are the second-largest microbial surfactants consumed globally. These surfactants are widely used in enhanced oil recovery, biopesticides and bioremediation. Other microbial biosurfactants constituted a smaller share of the market. This trend is estimated to continue during the forecast period. 

Household detergents emerged as the leading application in the microbial biosurfactants market in 2012. Rising demand for sustainable products in detergents and cleaning products is anticipated to drive the market. Consumers are shifting from synthetic chemical-based products to bio-based products due to increasing environmental awareness. In terms of demand, the global microbial biosurfactants market for household detergents application is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2014 to 2020. 

Microbial biosurfactants form an important constituent of detergents, as their efficiency is higher even at lower concentrations as compared to synthetic detergents. The personal care application segment is one of the fastest growing application in the next few years. Microbial biosurfactants possess high moisturizing properties as compared to synthetic surfactants. Chemicals in synthetic surfactants may harm the skin. Microbial surfactants have applications in enhanced oil recovery (EOR), which is used for improving recovery of the oil and petroleum products from oil wells. Microbial surfactants are less detrimental to the environment and do not require large thermal energy. They are used in low concentrations for recovery process as compared to synthetic surfactants.  

Europe dominated the global microbial surfactants market in 2012, accounting for nearly 54% of the overall market. Europe dominates the consumption of microbial biosurfactants due to stringent regulations regarding usage of bio-based products. It is expected to be the fastest growing region during the forecast period. Europe was followed by North America, which is expected to reach USD 4.3 million by 2020. Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow at a considerable rate due to increasing consumer awareness for bio-based products.

The global microbial surfactants market is highly consolidated, with the top three players 
accounting for more than 50% of the overall market in 2012. Companies such as Ecover, Soliance and Saraya operate across the value chain from manufacturing to end applications of these surfactants. Leading players in the market include MG Intobio, Ecover, Saraya, Soliance, AGAE Technologies and Jeneil Biotech.
