Japan Biocatalyst Market to Reach 8.28 Kilo Tons by 2027, Propelled by the Rapid Growth in the Field of Biotechnology

Published on Aug 23, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Japan Biocatalyst Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027”, finds that the Japan biocatalyst market size reached 5.26 Kilo Tons in 2021. Biocatalysts refer to a type of enzymes or microbes present in living organisms such as animals, plants, and microorganisms. They assist in modifying or improving the rate of a chemical reaction in a living body. They are biodegradable and organic and possess a high catalytic efficiency along with the capability to function under mild conditions. In recent years, biocatalysts have gained traction in Japan due to their extensive application in the pharmaceutical industry to produce statins, antibodies, amino acids, and vitamins.

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