Rhamnolipids belong to glycolipid class which is produced through pseudomonas aeruginosa organism and has characteristics of bacterial surfactant. Increasing application of bio-based surfactants in enhanced oil recovery on account of exhibiting excellent emulsification properties is likely to fuel rhamnolipids demand.
Rising application of rhamnolipids in hydrocarbon recovery and cleaning in downstream oil & gas is expected to have a positive impact on the industry. Rhamnolipids are produced through the fermentation process of food grade soy as well as olive oil, used in food & beverage industry. Predominant consumption of soy and olive oil in food & beverage industry is likely to impede the market growth in light of decreasing availability of raw materials.
Growing application of bio-glycolipids in personal care products in light of good wetting and foaming properties is expected to drive the industry growth. Increasing deployment of bio based surfactants in cleaning industry in light of being environmentally safe is likely to have a positive impact. Growing application of rhamnolipid based chemicals in food processing industry on account of exhibiting antimicrobial, anti-adhesive and emulsification properties is expected to augment the market growth.
Asia pacific is likely to be a lucrative market on account of positive outlook of agriculture industry in China and India.
Europe is expected to be a potential market on account of increasing importance towards environmental sustainability and stringent regulatory norms aiming to reduce consumption of synthetic based products. In January 2014, European Union promulgated and implemented Horizon 2020 strategy intended for developing bio-economy in Europe by 2020 which is expected to have a positive impact on bio-based surfactants.
Rising expenditure on organic farming in light of regulatory support in the U.S. is expected to play a crucial role in promoting rhamnolipids market growth. Latin American Consortium on Agroecology and Development (CLADES), collaborated with the Sustainable Agriculture Networking and Extension (SANE) to manufacture agro-based products is expected to ensure raw material access for rhamnolipids production in the near future.
Key players include Lion Corporation, AGAE Technologies LLC, Henkel, Allied Carbon Solutions, GlycoSurf, Tee Gene Biotech and Paradigm Biomedical Inc. In September 2014, AGAE Technologies LLC launched their rhamnolipid product line providing 98%, 95% and 90% purity in composition. In 2014, Logos Technologies launched its rhamnolipid based bio surfactant under the brand NatSurFact indented for application in household and personal care industries.
