Surfactants are compounds that reduce the surface pressure between two liquids or between a liquid and a solid. They are amphiphilic in nature, so they are used as emulsifying agents, detergents, and dispersants. Surfactants integrated with living cells or micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi, and yeast are called bio-surfactants. The global bio-surfactants market was valued at $1.67 billion in 2014 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.14% in terms of revenue during the forecast period.
