6.5 Conclusion

This chapter explored the current information relevant to microbial pigments in relation to 

sources, cost and new challenges we have to deal with. Throughout the chapter, the impor-

tance of microbial pigment production especially the benefits from human health has been 

one of the emerging fields of research to display its potential for a variety of applications.

The appreciation is that the occurrence of novel compounds in unexplored regions is the 

most probable fact and the focus in those habitats must be increased. Recent studies showed 

that better knowledge of the wide variation in native yeast as well as plant endophytes asso-

ciate with different endemic plants is important for understanding the diversity of pigments 

of different regions and for management purposes. This review would provide a basis for the 

systemic study of microbial pigments and for evaluating and screening efficient microbial 

species. Further studies are required to understand pigment mechanisms in the vast micro-

organisms associations.
