According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Biocatalyst Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025”, the global biocatalyst market size reached 118 Kilo Tons in 2019. Biocatalysts are enzymes that help in modifying or increasing the rate of a chemical reaction, such as the production of alcohol through fermentation. They are organic and biodegradable and have the potential to operate under mild conditions. Owing to these advantages, biocatalysts are widely used in the food and beverage (F&B), pharmaceutical, textile, and soap and detergent industries across the globe. This can be also be accredited to the vital role of biocatalysts in minimizing costs, enhancing process efficiency and developing new environment-friendly processes. Some of the commonly used biocatalysts are microbes, proteases, lipases, amylases and cellulases.

Biocatalysts are substances of biological origin that possess the ability to increase the rate of a chemical reaction. They are environment-friendly and biodegradable and have high catalytic efficiency and the ability to operate under mild conditions. Owing to these advantages, they are used in the production of biofuels, biopharmaceuticals, detergents and textiles. Other than this, they are also employed in various industrial and commercial applications around the world.

Biocatalysts find application in the food and beverage (F&B) industry to increase the shelf-life of various food products. Furthermore, owing to stringent environmental policies undertaken by governments of several countries, there is a rise in demand for biofuels worldwide, which, in turn, is driving the biocatalyst market growth. Apart from this, as they are economical and aid in minimizing waste produced during the production process, biocatalysts are employed in the manufacturing of various chemicals and bio-based feedstocks. Moreover, the increasing health consciousness among consumers is resulting in the escalating demand for biocatalysts in the personal care industry. This, in turn, is anticipated to strengthen the market growth in the coming years.
