Sophorolipids are potential biosurfactants as they have qualities such as biodegradability and low eco-toxicity. Sophorolipid are extracted from natural sources and are expected to be an alternative to petrochemicals such as detergents and pesticides. It is expected that the efficacy of sophorolipid in breaking down oil into droplets will increase market penetration in untapped market as dispersants of oil. Sophorolipid is useful in hard surface cleaning and automatic dishwashing rinse aid formulations. It has potential use in additional applications owing to its low foaming profile and surface activity properties.

Growing Demand for Sophorolipid from Numerous End-Use Industries Escalates Sophorolipid Market Growth

The effectiveness of sophorolipid mainly to break down oil into droplets is anticipated to increase market penetration as oil dispersants. Also, the growing importance of cleaning agents particularly for cleaning oil spills in the energy sector due to reducing exposure to marine life located offshore is further expected to drive this market. The increasing use of sophorolipid for bioremediation applications in agriculture for the effective reduction of oil and pesticides from the soil, rising application of sophorolipid in manufacturing biopesticides to remove pathogens, and growing application in the pharmaceutical industry due to its antiviral and immune regulatory properties bolsters the sophorolipid market growth. Due to biosurfactant properties, sophorolipid are gaining popularity in manufacturing personal care products such as shampoos and deodorants. Sophorolipid also possess antifungal properties that increase its application in manufacturing anti-dandruff shampoos and bacteriostatic agents. Sophorolipid is widely used in the energy sector, agriculture sector, pharmaceutical industry, and cosmetic and personal care industry due to its natural or bio-based properties, which propels the growth of the sophorolipid market.

Sophorolipid Market: Type

Based on type, the sophorolipid market is bifurcated into acidic sophorolipid and lactonic sophorolipid. The acidic sophorolipid segment led the market with a higher market share in 2019. Acid sophorolipids are produced by a variety of yeast species, especially Starmerella bombicola. Acid sophorolipids are amphiphilic molecules and thus possess the characteristics of surfactants. As biosurfactants, they have various potential advantages over synthetic surfactants such as lower toxicity, higher biodegradability, and low-cost manufacturing capacity. Acidic forms are stronger foaming agents with higher water solubility and are used in the dairy, cosmetics, and bioremediation industries, which drive the growth of the market for acidic sophorolipid segment.
