Global Bio-surfactants Market 2017-2021

About Bio-surfactants
Bio-surfactants are amphiphilic compounds that are produced on the surfaces of living organisms (mostly microorganisms) or discharged extracellularly. They have both hydrophobic and hydrophilic parts, which makes them capable of reducing the surface tension between two liquid surfaces or a liquid and a solid surface. They can aggregate different interfaces of media with varying polarities. Apart from this, they also function as foaming agents, detergents, wetting agents, and emulsifiers. These functions make bio-surfactants a vital component in several industries such as agriculture, pharmaceutical, chemical cleaning, textile, food, and preservatives. They are biodegradable; with less toxicity; and effective in high temperature, pH, and salinity.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global bio-surfactants market to grow at a CAGR of 6.02% during the period 2017-2021.
