FELTON, California, August 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Global biosurfactant market is anticipated to generate demand of over 340,000 tons by 2020, growing at a CAGR of around 4% from 2014 to 2020. Absence of direct bio based substitutes of these product is expected to be one of the major factor driving the market over the forecast period.
Bio surfactants are surface-active compounds manufactured from several bio-based raw materials such as plant oil, plant carbohydrate and animal oil. Biosurfactants are excellent alternatives for synthetic surfactants and are the best emulsifiers that helps in maintaining, temperature & pH tolerance, antimicrobial, wet & foaming properties.
Few other factors such as growth of the global personal care industry and rising environmental concern over consumption of synthetic surfactants are yet another factor expected to drive the product demand.
Detergents and personal care products are its main end use applications. Bio surfactants such as APE (Alkyl phenol ethoxylates) &LAS (Linear Alkylbenzene Sulfates) have been also used as substitutes for synthetic ones in sewage treatment plants. Environmental friendly nature, non-toxicity, low irritancy, biodegradability and safety of handling these products are some of the major advantages for these over the synthetic ones.
New production techniques and increasing applications in bioremediation, oilfield chemicals, industrial and institutional cleaners are anticipated to create new opportunities for the industry.
