Biocatalysts Global Market Report 2022: Adoption of Sustainability Standards to Improve Productivity & Profitability Bolsters Sector

Dublin, Dec. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Biocatalysts Market - Global Outlook & Forecast 2022-2027" report has been added to's offering.

The global biocatalysts market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.67% during 2021-2027. Biocatalysts are substances, specifically enzymes, that activate or speed up a biochemical reaction. Biocatalysts are used in chemical synthesis in various industries (such as pharmaceuticals, food & beverages, animal nutrition, household, and others). In the pharmaceutical industry, biocatalysts help in manufacturing drugs for DNA/RNA treatment, cancer, heart-related disease, and other treatments.

Increasing demand for biobased products drives the biocatalysts market. Due to emerging technology, sustainability is growing all over the world. In the pharmaceutical industry, companies have started using biobased drugs to improve the quality of products, making the pharmaceutical biocatalysts market grow rapidly. Thus, top companies follow the expansion strategy for acquiring a greater biocatalysts market share. The food & beverages industry is rising due to the increasing consumption of food & beverages, thus increasing the demand for biocatalysts in the global industry.

Increase in Food Consumption Due to Growth in Population

  • The food industry includes four major sectors - producers, marketers, processors, and farm services. During the Covid 19, the demand for food supplies increased, resulting in the food industry's growth. Enzymes are used in the food industry as a preservative, the best substitute for chemical preservatives. They improve the quality of products such as starch, fruit juices, cheese, animal feed, and beer & wine. From the application perspective, the demand for animal feed is increasing due to higher poultry, meat, and dairy consumption.

Increasing Demand from Pharmaceutical Industry

  • The pharmaceutical industry's revenue is increasing yearly due to increasing demand for the drugs used for manufacturing pharmaceutical products. In past years, the Chinese pharma industry has been on the top in terms of growth rate. The consumption of pharmaceutical products is growing due to changes in clinical practices and increasing chronic and aging-related issues.
  • The lowering of regulatory barriers for new drugs in the US causes an increased demand for pharma sector products globally. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the highest demand for pharmaceutical products was observed. The demand for new drugs is still high owing to the recurrence of new variants of Covid-19 in various countries. The demand for pharmaceutical products is also increasing in developing countries such as India, China, and Brazil, among others owing to the emergence of Covid-19 variants, lifestyle diseases, and an aging population. Biocatalysts are used in the manufacturing processes of antibiotics to treat such diseases. And with a growing global pharmaceutical industry, the biocatalysts market is also growing.


Technical Barriers Affecting Industry

Biocatalysis is a process that accelerates the chemical process by using biomolecules. It includes mild reaction and high selectivity conditions. Therefore, biocatalysts play an important role in the chemical industry and are gaining relevance in industrial applications. But, there is difficulty in finding the accurate protein structure of biocatalysts. The process is time-consuming and requires more catalysts to fulfilling the chemical reaction process. For the biocatalysts manufacturing process, specific conditions such as new substrate, new concentration, and other conditions are required which are not found easily in nature. Thus, increasing the cost of producing the biocatalysts.
