Biocatalysts are defined as substances of biological (non-human) origin, which possess the ability to catalyse a broad spectrum of reactions. They are organic, biodegradable and have high catalytic efficiency along with the ability to operate under mild conditions. Owing to this, they are used for various industrial and commercial applications. IMARC Group’s latest report titled, “Biocatalyst Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, finds that the global biocatalyst market reached a volume of nearly 106 Kilotons in 2017, exhibiting a CAGR of around 6% during 2010-2017.
The market is currently being driven by a number of favourable factors. Due to advancements in technology and the environment-friendly nature of biocatalysts, their use has expanded rapidly. Traditionally used to convert biologically derived (or renewable) feedstock, they are now being used in the production of biofuels, biopharmaceuticals, etc. Moreover, the growing awareness about the benefits of biocatalysts and their environment sustainability has stimulated their demand in industries such as food and beverage, detergents, starch processing and textiles. As a result, the market is further expected to reach a volume of around 148 Kilotons by 2023.
