In December 2019, Unilever Plc (NYSE: UL) partnered with Evonik, a specialty chemical company, to launch a green cleaning ingredient Rhamnolipid, which is renewable and biodegradable in nature.


In terms of region, North America is likely to account for a significant market share and is anticipated to witness a considerable growth in the forecast period. The rising investment in the chemical industry is projected to support the market growth in the coming years. In addition, the growing focus of the leading market players in the development of environment friendly and sustainable surfactant solutions is anticipated to bolster the market growth in the forecast period.
