Abstract:
Biosurfactants are natural surface active agents produced by various microbes (bacteria, yeast and fungi) and plants. There are several categories of biosurfactants which are marking their presence felt in the international market viz. sophorolipids, lipopeptides, methyl ester sulphonate (MES), alkyl polyglucoside (APG), sorbitan esters and sucrose esters however rhamnolipids - the glycolipid biosurfactants - produced mostly by Pseudomonas species are believed to be the future biosurfactant market leaders due to their significant applications. Pseudomonas species produce rhamnolipids in the presence of immiscible substrates such as n-alkanes, hexadecane and several oils. The global biosurfactant market is expected to reach $2.8 billion in 2023, which includes both microbial and plant based surfactants. The rhamnolipid market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 5.4% from 2014 to 2020 owing to the widespread applications of rhamnolipids in various sectors. The present article gives analytical opinion on the current market growth rate of rhamnolipids, key players in rhamnolipid manufacturing, the obstacles faced by the industry and the factors that are holding back rhamnolipids to become market leaders.
