Microbial biosurfactants are amphipathic molecules having typical molecular weights of 500-1500 Da. Microbial biosurfactants are made up of peptides, saccharides or lipids or their combinations. In biodegradation processes, they arbitrate solubilization, mobilization and/or accession of hydrophobic substrates to microbes. Biosurfactants are individual’s chemicals with clearly defined hydrophilic and hydrophobic groups. Microbial biosurfactants or microbial-derived surfactants are surface-active compounds that create the variety of microbes from renewable feedstock. Microbial biosurfactants are used as a substitute for their synthetic and plant-derived counterparts. The major type of microbial biosurfactants used in the industry includes sophorolipids, emulsifiers, rhamnolipids, and others. Microbial biosurfactants are widely used in different end-user industries such as food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, detergents, personal care, textile and oilfield chemicals application.
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. Zion Market 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.”

Microbial biosurfactants market is mainly driven by growing demand for environment-friendly cleaning products. Stringent environmental regulation on the use of crude oil derived products is forcing manufacturers and end-users to explore innovative surfactants. This likely to propel microbial biosurfactants market in the years to come. Higher prices as compare to synthetic and plant-derived surfactants are expected to hold the growth of microbial biosurfactants market. However, stringent regulation on the use of crude derived surfactants and various issues in sourcing feedstock for plant-derived surfactants are likely to hamper the growth of the synthetic and plant-derived surfactants market respectively. This is expected to open new growth window for microbial biosurfactants.
Rhamnolipids, sophorolipids, mannosylerythritol lipids (MEL) and others are the key product segments of the microbial biosurfactant market. Sophorolipids accounted for a very large chunk of the global microbial biosurfactant market in 2014. The market is mainly driven by growing demand for sophorolipids, which accounted for over 50% share of the global market in 2014.

Strong growth of sophorolipids can be attributed to the high production yields. Owing to this sophorolipids are growing in popularity among the manufacturers and end-users as well. Rhamnolipids are the second leading product segment for microbial biosurfactants and it is widely used in bioremediation and improved oil recovery. Others segment is expected to exhibit fastest growth rate during the forecast period.
On the basis of application, microbial biosurfactant market can segment as household detergents, industrial & institutional cleaners, personal care, oilfield chemicals, agricultural chemicals, food processing, textile, and others. Household detergents are the largest market of microbial biosurfactant. Household detergents, personal care, and industrial & institutional cleaners are the leading ends application markets respectively. Together, they account for over 65% share of the total volume consumed in 2014. Agriculture and oilfield chemicals application markets also accounted for significant share of the microbial biosurfactants market. However, household detergents are expected to be the fastest growing application market for microbial biosurfactants during the forecast period.

Europe dominated the microbial biosurfactants market in terms of both volume and revenue. Strong demand for microbial biosurfactants in Europe is the result of stringent environmental regulations imposed by REACH in the region. European countries are very particular about protection of their environment. This has resulted in growing demand for microbial biosurfactants in the region. Europe accounted for around half of the total microbial biosurfactants volume consumed in the world in 2014. Europe is followed by North America and Asia Pacific respectively. Latin America and Middle East & Africa are also expected to exhibit promising growth during the years to come.
Some of the key industry participants in microbial biosurfactant market include MG Intobio, Ecover, Saraya, Soliance, AGAE Technologies, SyntheZyme LLC and Jeneil Biotech.
