Sophorolipids Market Rising demand for bio-based surfactants in the detergent industry is a key factor driving sophorolipids market revenue growth

The global sophorolipids market size reached USD 24.40 Billion in 2021 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 15.7% during the forecast period, according to a latest analysis by Emergen Research. Research initiatives on anti-skin-cancer therapies are a major factor expected to drive revenue growth of the market between 2022 and 2030.

Sophorolipid is a type of glycolipid that is obtained from microbial sources of origin. The most common source of the biological substance is Candida bombicola, which is a yeast. Sophorolipids exhibit surfactant properties, and are hence regarded as biosurfactants with a wide range of applications in the agricultural, FMCG, and even pharmaceutical industries. The biosurfactant has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, which makes it an essential component in body care and personal care products. The molecule is amphipathic in nature and thus is capable of removing oils and dirt when used for washing clothes. This has increased adoption of sophorolipids in detergents as a sustainable and biodegradable alternative to commercially available synthetic products. Research initiatives published in 2021 have revealed anti-cancer properties of the substance, whereby it inhibits growth of cells that can cause skin cancer. This is expected to increase adoption of the molecule for melanoma-based research studies in the coming years and drive revenue growth of the market over the forecast period.

Some Key Highlights From the Report

  • The candida bombicola segment accounted for a significant revenue share in 2021. It is the most widely used fungal strain for production of sophorolipids. The fungi are capable of producing the biosurfactant using two carbon sources and a nitrogen source and utilize waste products as raw materials, such as feedstock, animal oils, and waste cooking oils. This reduces environmental pollution as well as enables maintenance of a circular economy, which is expected to increase adoption of the strain in the coming years, and boost revenue growth of this segment.


  • The FMCG industry segment accounted for a significant revenue share in 2021. Rising environmental concerns due to use of synthetic detergents and soaps and the steady transition toward organic detergents is a crucial factor driving revenue growth of this segment. Sophorolipids are used in soaps, detergents, as well as in body washes, shampoos, conditioners, and hair refreshers due to its favorable properties. The molecule is amphipathic, and exhibits anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, which is beneficial for consumers. This is increasing adoption of sophorolipid-based personal care products and supporting revenue growth of the FMCG industry.


  • The market in Europe is expected to register rapid CAGR during the forecast period. Robust presence of major companies in countries in this region is a major factor driving revenue growth of the market in this region. Publication of research initiatives related to beneficial properties of sophorolipids are increasing adoption of the biosurfactant in different sectors. Strategic collaborations between companies regarding sophorolipid production is another factor expected to contribute to revenue growth of the Europe sophorolipids market between 2022 and 2030.
