Mannosylerythritol Lipids Market - Asia-Pacific Expected to Dominate the Market in Coming Future

Persistence Market Research Pvt. Ltd is released new forthcoming report on title "Mannosylerythritol Lipids Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast to 2015 to 2021".


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/24/2015 -- Mannosylerythritol lipids (MEL) are surface active compounds that belong to the glycolipid class of biosurfactants and have widespread industrial and commercial applications. Mannosylerythritol lipids have gained attention due to their self-assembling properties, structural diversity and mild production conditions. Mannosylerythritol lipids are produced by pseudozyma species as a major component while Ustilago species produces them as a minor component. Mannosylerythritol lipids can replace their synthetic counterparts as they are derived from renewable feedstock and have better quality and efficiency. Mannosylerythritol lipids have superior dispersing, emulsifying and foaming properties and are effective at extreme temperatures, salinity and ph. The global mannosylerythritol lipids market has grown gradually with Europe and North America being the largest markets. Even though they have greater biodergaradiiblity and reduced toxicity, cost competiveness remains a major factor for production of mannosylerythritol lipids. However, new innovative techniques and optimized cultivation conditions have allowed companies to produce mannosylerythritol lipids on a commercial scale and reap the benefits of green biosurfactant technology.

Mannosylerythritol lipids have applications in household detergents, personal care, food processing, agricultural chemicals, industrial and institutional cleaners, oilfield chemicals, and textile among others. Household detergents is the largest application of mannosylerythritol lipids with new applications being continuously discovered. The growing concern with synthetic surfactants in detergents is expected to lead to increased usage of mannosylerythritol lipids especially due to its low toxicity. Mannosylerythritol lipids also have pharmaceutical applications and their versatile biochemical functions include antitumor and differentiation activities against rat pheochromocytoma cells, human leukemia cells and mouse melanoma cells. In addition, they can be used for treatment of microbial infections, schizophrenia and diseases caused by dopamine metabolic dysfunction. Mannosylerythritol lipids are also used for preparation of lectins such as Immunoglobin G and in preparation of anti agglomeration agents of ice water slurry.

The increasing demand for environmental friendly products and favorable regulatory outlook from developed countries are some of the driving factors for mannosylerythritol lipids market. Many of the synthetic surfactants pose significant environmental risks due to their harmful chemical compounds and their incomplete degradation in water and soil. Synthetic surfactants are reported to cause long term adverse effects but bio based products degrade easily and do not pollute the environment. Consumer preference for bio based products is growing especially in emerging economies of Asia Pacific which is another major driving factor for mannosylerythritol lipids. However, high price of mannosylerythritol lipids as compared to their synthetic and plant derived counterparts could hamper the growth of this market. Application of mannosylerythritol lipids in bioremediation and enhanced oil recovery provide tremendous opportunity in the coming few years.

Europe and North America are expected to dominate the mannosylerythritol lipids market with Europe accounting for majority of the overall market. Stringent government regulations, high awareness and demand for bio based products are some of the key reasons for high penetration of mannosylerythritol lipids. In addition, Asia Pacific will witness substantial growth rate due to increasing awareness of biobased products. Countries such as China and India have a well established textile, agricultural, personal care and pharmaceutical industry which will augment the demand for mannosylerythritol lipids over the next few years. Rest of the world accounts for a small market share due to high production costs and less consumer awareness.

Some of the key players in this market are Jeneil Biotech, AGAE Technologies, Soliance, Saraya, Kanebo Cosmetics and Ecover among others.
