GCC Biocatalyst Market to Reach 1.16 Kilo Tons by 2027, Propelled by the Rapidly Expanding Biotechnology Field

Published on Sep 16, 2022

The latest report by IMARC, titled “GCC Biocatalyst Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, finds that the GCC biocatalyst market size reached 0.86 Kilo Tons in 2021. Biocatalysts refer to microbes or enzymes in living organisms, including plants, animals, and microorganisms, which aid in enhancing or modifying the rate of a chemical reaction. They are capable of catalyzing or initiating chemical reactions in a living body. They are organic and biodegradable, containing a high catalytic efficiency and the capability to function under mild conditions. In recent years, biocatalysts have gained traction in the GCC region due to their widespread adoption in the pharmaceutical industry to produce antibodies, statins, amino acids, and vitamins.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of the associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

GCC Biocatalyst Market Trends:

One of the primary factors driving the market is the significant growth in the field of biotechnology. Additionally, biocatalysts are extensively adopted for various industrial and commercial applications on account of their environment-friendly nature. Other than this, the increasing awareness about numerous advantages of biocatalysts and their environmental sustainability is augmenting the demand for biocatalysts in various industry verticals, including food and beverage (F&B), starch processing, textiles, and detergents. Besides this, biocatalysts are widely used in the production of biopharmaceuticals and biofuels, thus driving market growth across the GCC countries. Furthermore, key players are focusing on introducing a variety of enzyme products in the market to expand their consumer base.
