Top 5 Companies Supporting Growth of the Global Alkyl Polyglucosides (APG) Biosurfactants Market

top alkyl polyglucosides biosurfactants companies


Shanghai Fine Chemical Co., Ltd. (SFCCL), BASF SA, Clariant AG, Yangzhou Chenhua New Material CO. LTD, and Croda International PLC, among others, are major players in the global alkyl polyglucosides (APG) biosurfactants market.


The global alkyl polyglucosides (APG) biosurfactants market is expected to grow at a CAGR of about 5% in the forecast period of 2022-2027. As per the analysis by Expert Market Research, the market is expected to be driven by increasing demand for biodegradable and natural products.


Alkyl polyglucosides are biosurfactants formed by the reaction of sugar and fat. Biosurfactants derived from alkyl polyglucosides are non-ionic surfactants, which are manufactured from renewable plant-based sources. They are biodegradable, environmentally friendly, and have a wide range of uses in several applications, including detergents, food emulsifiers, industrial emulsifiers, pharmaceutical granulating agents, and cosmetic surfactants, among others. Due to rapid climate change, consumers are increasingly focusing on sustainable development and the usage of environmentally friendly and biodegradable items is rising, hence driving the use of alkyl polyglucosides surfactants. As alkyl polyglucosides are environmentally friendly and formed by reacting fatty alcohol with sugar utilising acid as a catalyst, their demand for sustainable products is growing.


The market for alkyl polyglucosides biosurfactants is expected to develop significantly due to the rising demand for natural and cruelty-free goods. The biosurfactants are utilised in the cosmetics sector in the manufacturing of various hair and skincare products such as face wash, shampoo, hand wash, and shower gel, among others. The use of alkyl polyglucosides biosurfactants to boost foams in detergents owing to their non-toxic and non-irritating properties and excellent surface superiority is likely to grow. Additionally, the biosurfactants prevent corrosion and oxidation of metals, due to which they are utilised in automobile and industry machinery applications. Moreover, the rising demand for sugar surfactants generated from renewable resources is anticipated to positively influence the market for alkyl polyglucosides in the forecast period.
