Biosurfactants Market - Global Trends, Analysis, & Forecast 2015-2019 is a new market research publication announced by Reportstack.
Definition and Growth of the Biosurfactants Market:
The growing demand for bio-based personal care products and the environmental awareness to use bio-compatible and low toxic products has led to a growing demand for biosurfactants.
Due to their compound structure, surfactants are used as excellent emulsifying agents, detergents, dispersants, etc. Biosurfactants are produced from raw materials such as vegetable oils, animal fats, sucrose, and glucose. Biosurfactants are used in various industries because of their excellent foaming, wetting, emulsifying and detergency qualities.
Concerns about the use of synthetic surfactants has compelled many manufacturers to assess the biodegradability of their products. Biosurfactants have emerged as a popular choice, thus boosting the growth rate of the market to over 6% between 2015 and 2019.
