Bio-surfactants are surface active substances, synthesized by microorganisms or can be produced extracellularly. They are hydrophobic and hydrophilic in nature and are capable of reducing the surface tension and interfacial tension between individual molecule at the surface and interface. The global Biosurfactant market has shown tremendous growth due to promising properties of Biosurfactants such as they are environmentally friendly, less toxic and biodegradable. This creates an advantage over synthetic surfactants and attracts surfactant manufacturers to enter in Biosurfactant market.
High consumer awareness and demand for bio-based products and eco-friendly quality of Biosurfactant drives and supports the growth of Biosurfactant market. However, Cost competitiveness with respect to conventional surfactants remains a major restraint. The marketers have the opportunities to make their place in the market through utilization of industrial and agricultural wastes and usage of Biosurfactant in the unconventional market.
