Mannosylerythritol lipids (MEL) are surface-active bio surfactants of glycolipid class. It has excellent biochemical and interfacial properties obtained from a variety of fungal and yeast extracts. In addition, excellent dispersing, emulsification, and frothing properties under variable temperature ranges have made these lipids gain momentum in various residential and non-residential applications.
The increase in demand for biodegradable and ecofriendly products has triggered the mannosylerythirol lipids market, which is expected to gain traction in the coming years. The growing demand for household detergent is expected to trigger the growth of this market. Furthermore, these lipids function biochemically against leukemia and tumor cells, which is likely to gain traction in pharmaceutical applications. The use of yeast glycolipids and mannosylerythirol lipids as bio pesticides has increased the scope of its application in the agricultural sector. The application of mannosylerythritol lipids in hydrocarbon fuels as a pour point depressant is expected to witness increase in demand in oil and gas applications. The operational cost involved in production coupled with shorter shelf life is expected to hinder the market growth. However, research and development coupled with consumer awareness about natural products is expected to drive the market.
North America is the dominant region in the mannosylerythirol lipids market followed by Europe. The increase in agricultural and personal care applications in the Asia-Pacific region is expected to gain traction in countries such as China, India, and Japan.
