Increasing consideration towards the safety of human health and environmental risks has encouraged numerous government regulations, which have further resulted in more consumption of biosurfactants in various industries as well as regions. Major types of biosurfactants commercially available are glycolipids, lipopeptides, polymeric biosurfactants, phospholipids, fatty acids and others. The report also focuses on different geographic regions and the key countries in terms of changing trends in biosurfactants market in various fields.
The report explains the biosurfactants market which is segmented on the basis of type, application and geography. The key factors to rise in demand for biosurfactants are the increasing awareness for environmentally friendly products and growing concerns regarding use of synthetic surfactants which ultimately leads to degradability. Household detergent is considered as the major consumer of biosurfactants. Other factors such as lower carbon footprint, favorable government regulations and availability of raw materials drives the increasing demand for biosurfactants.
The demand for biosurfactants is growing at a faster pace across the globe. The biosurfactants market is growing due to high demand in the end-use sectors such as detergents, oilfield chemicals, cosmetics, healthcare, agriculture and more. Glycolipid is considered as the major type of biosurfactants. However, unavailability of critical feedstock and deficiency of cost-competitiveness of bio based surfactants as compared to synthetic ones are some of the major factors which is likely to create hindrance in the biosurfactants market globally.
Europe is considered as the major consumer of biosurfactants. The stringent regulatory framework enables the use of bio based products in place of conventional petroleum based products. A detailed qualitative analysis of the factors responsible for driving and restraining growth of the biosurfactants market and future opportunities are provided in the report.
Globally, Europe region dominated the biosurfactants market share in terms of both revenue and volume in 2016. It accounted for xx% of the biosurfactants market. Europe is considered as major consumer for biosurfactants followed by North America. Household detergents and oilfield chemicals are the major end user industries where the demand is high for biosurfactants. APAC is the fastest growing market which has abundant supply of raw materials. In APAC, China, India, Indonesia and Malaysia are the leading producers of biosurfactants. The study forecasts that biosurfactants market will increase at a CAGR of x.x% during the forecast period 2016 and 2021, to attain an anticipated value of $xx.x billion by the end of the forecast period.
