A key factor driving the growth of the market is the growing demand for
food due to rising population. The rapidly increasing worldwide
population is a major concern for global food security and agriculture
development. Population growth leads to more demand for food globally,
and the shrinking arable land due to urbanization and industrialization
creates a growth opportunity for agriculture surfactants to enhance the
per hectare yield. The concern for food security is rising as the global
demand for food is likely to surpass its supply in the coming years.
Land scarcity and food insecurity are worsened by the growing demand for
meat and other land-intensive foods, such as processed foods using soy
and palm oil.

Global agricultural surfactants market:
Inclination toward bio-based surfactants

With the growing concern about the toxic effects of the petroleum-based
surfactants and increasing crude oil prices, the demand for bio-based
surfactants or biosurfactants is increasing at a steady rate.
Biosurfactants, mainly derived from natural resources such as vegetable
oil, palm oil, yeast, bacteria, and other resources, exhibit excellent
wettability, low toxicity, environment-friendly nature, and high
dispersing ability.

"Biosurfactants are used for the hydrophilization of heavy soils to
obtain good wettability and to achieve even distribution of fertilizers
in the soil. They also prevent the caking of certain fertilizers during
storage and promote the spreading and penetration of the toxins in
pesticides. Biosurfactants are biodegradable. They break down and
provide essential nutrients to the agriculture soil, thus enhancing
plant growth and plant-microbe interaction that is beneficial to the
