- Market Performance & Price Analysis 2018
- Market Analysis & Outlook 2019-2024
- Capacity Addition & Plant Turnarounds
The North America enzymes market is expected to attain a volume of about 450 kilo metric tons by 2024 due to a growing market globally, which is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 6% in the forecast period of 2019-2024. The US is one of the leading markets and was the largest consumer as well as producer of enzymes globally in 2017.
Properties and Applications
Enzymes are biocatalysts that speed up a biochemical reaction by binding with molecules and altering them. The industry is growing due to favourable properties like being cost-efficient, stable, and biodegradable. The major enzyme types available are:
Protease and amylase, especially, are finding extensive use in application sectors like food and beverage, textile, detergent, and leather industries. When added to detergents, enzymes help break down tough stains like blood, fats, grass, and mud, among others, and are functional even in lower temperatures. Biofuel is another significant growing application sector where enzymes are finding rising use.
The US, in particular, is expected to attain a value of USD 2.5 billion between 2018 and 2019, growing annually by 4.2%. The healthy growth of speciality enzymes is balancing out the slower growth of the mature industrial enzyme markets and biofuel production. The demand for speciality enzymes in the region is driven by rising demand for biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. Proteases dominate the US market finding extensive use as protein hydrolysing enzymes in the detergent, food and beverage, and textile sectors.
In the US liquid detergents dominate the market with an almost 50% of the total share. Four-fifths of the detergents used in the US are the enzymatic kind. Enzymatic detergents were valued at almost USD 13 billion in 2017.
