According to market research by Fact. MR – market analysis and competitive intelligence provider, the global microbial biosurfactants market is projected to exceed an estimated value of USD 16.5 million by 2022, developing at a significant rate of close to 3.9% CAGR over the statement period. Biosurfactants are compounds that lower the surface tension between gas and liquid or between two liquids etc., which are used in corrosion inhibition, promoting oil flow in porous rocks, and producing aerosols. These surfactants can be broadly categorized into tributaries like triacetin, medium-grade biosurfactants like dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC), low-grade bio-oil surfactants like proficient LB-1T whose structure is similar to that of natural phospholipids, bile salt derivatives such as sodium docusate, etc and blends (biology) of various type and degree of sulfonation made with or without coconut fatty acids, an unsaponifiable fraction of olive oil & alkylamino propyl betaines. Biosurfactants, such as rhamnolipids, are widely used in pharmaceutical and biomedical industries because of their abilities to augment surface-active properties, low toxicity, and antimicrobial activities against several microorganisms. Rhamnolipids’ microbial production is on the rise due to their ability to allow surface activity while increasing antimicrobial properties.
Research shows that rhamnolipids are used in some cutting-edge pharmaceuticals, such as medications to treat septic shock or eczema. You see, it’s thought that rhamnolipids can help reduce the levels of inflammation through binding to the surface of harmful microbes and helping other immune system cells neutralize them. These kinds of microbial synthesized surfactants are generally referred to as biosurfactants. Other biosurfactants include fatty acid derivatives like certain antibiotic lipopeptides! Agricultural crops use often use pesticides known as agrochemicals to increase profits by increasing the yield, but at what cost? There’s always a risk of run-off into our water supply ruining our natural ecosystem and harming humans, too! So before spraying chemicals on our plants, let’s first try implementing some practical alternatives for maximum food production.
Moreover, in recent years there has been a spike in the use of chemicals in nearly every industry, and that increased use is not without its repercussions. The environment around us can be severely damaged in the process and people’s health is also affected. Microbial biosurfactants are less dangerous to humans and do not pollute the environment as much as some other similar products. An increasing market for eco-friendly products is propelling the growth of the microbial biosurfactants market at present. This is only going to speed up with further research into safe uses for this type of product. We believe that it will only continue to become more important over time.
Which Application of Microbial Biosurfactants is Popular?
Microbial biosurfactants are used in products such as household detergents, industrial & institutional cleaners, personal care & healthcare products, oilfield chemicals (e.g. drill cuttings), agricultural chemicals (pesticides), and mining chemicals & mining acids.
Key Segments Covered in Microbial Biosurfactants Industry Survey
Microbial biosurfactant is a term that refers to any substance that repels water and increases the cleaning capabilities of household detergents, industrial and institutional cleaners, personal care products, household cleaners, oilfield chemicals, and agricultural chemicals. They are also used for other applications such as sewage dispersal, animal feed additive, paper product sizing, and wastewater treatment. Their price may vary depending on their intended use. Microbial biosurfactants are generally created using microbes derived from plants or animals.

Microbial biosurfactants are like a delicious topping on already delicious foods. They have the ability to alter the appearance and taste of food to add a very special touch to a meal. Even if you don’t eat food daily, you probably at least chew on something. That’s why this is so important: Microbial biosurfactants are extremely versatile because when it comes to being consumed we consume food even if we don’t remember doing so. Generating microbial biosurfactants in ways that do no harm to animals or the environment is important for the future of our world and that’s something we feel strongly about here at Slush Factory.
