Pune, India, June 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global natural surfactants market size is expected to gain momentum by reaching USD 24.78 billion by 2028 while exhibiting a CAGR of 3.9% between 2021 and 2028. Fortune Business Insights in its report, titled “Natural Surfactants Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Product (Anionics, Nonionics, Cationics, and Amphoterics), By Application (Detergents, Industrial & Institutional, Personal Care, Oilfield Chemicals, and Others), and Regional Forecast, 2021-2028.”, mentions that the market stood at USD 18.16 billion in 2020. Factors such as the high demand for renewable petroleum biotechnology across the oil industry and the increasing demand for detergents are anticipated to favor the demand for the product globally. Biosurfactants are extensively adopted across the oil refining chain and in petrochemical component formulations. They act as effective emulsifying/demulsifying agents, biocides for sulfate-reducing bacteria, anticorrosive, fuel formulation, and bitumen extraction from tar sands. Therefore, their growing adoption is likely to play a pivotal role in positively driving the market.

The drastic effect of the global pandemic, COVID-19, has been felt across several economies facing unprecedented loss. The lockdown imposed by the government agencies has led to several industries facing halted industrial operations. However, a collective effort from the government and the industries is likely to bring the economy back on track and aid in the resumption of industrial activities.
