Alkyl Polyglucoside Surfactants Market Synopsis:


Bio-surfactants are surfactants in which at least one of the two groups (hydrophilic or hydrophobic) is obtained from renewable sources, which can be either produced from plant or animal fats, or microorganisms such as yeasts, bacteria, and filamentous fungi. The first generation of biosurfactants is made entirely from renewable feedstock (mainly starch and vegetable oils—fatty acids) through chemical synthesis, while the second generation of biosurfactants is produced from renewable feedstock through microbial fermentation. Alkyl polyglucosides surfactants are bio-based surfactants, they are  polymeric acetals of glucose and fatty alcohols. They are non-ionic, highly effective carbohydrate derived surfactants. The global alkyl polyglucosides surfactants market was valued USD 880 Million in 2017, and expected to grow at healthy CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period. Some of the factors that drives the global alkyl polyglucosides surfactants market are growing use of bio-based surfactants in household detergents and rising use of alkyl polyglucoside surfactants in industrial cleansers. However, high cost of alkyl polyglucoside surfactants compared to other industrial synthetic surfactants may restrain its demand in near future. Moreover, constant research & development in bio-based surfactants regarding applicability in different application segment may emerged as new opportunity for the product in coming years.


The global alkyl polyglucoside surfactants market is projected to reach USD 1.12 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 8.1%.

Global alkyl polyglucoside surfactant market is an organized market wherein a significant share of the market is held by the top six manufacturers of alkyl polyglucoside surfactants.Recent DevelopmentNovember 2021: Manufacturers of specialty chemicals, such as Galaxy Surfactants, the market leader in alkyl polyglucoside surfactants, continue to benefit from robust demand, but supply chain constraints are limiting the advantages. The September quarter performance reflected the same. However, the company's total revenues increased by 22% year on year in the September quarter, supported by improved realisations. Galaxy's stock prices increased by more than 3% in early trading. Volumes in all areas were modest, including surfactants and specialist care products. The supply chain for critical raw materials presented issues, and increased input costs had an adverse effect on operating performance. Supply-side restrictions were exacerbated by volatility in feedstock costs, unavailability of important feedstocks, and extended lead times.
