Enzymes

Growth will be driven by healthcare cost constraints on the medical and pharmaceutical industries that will benefit enzymes used in the research and biotechnology, in vitro diagnostics, and biocatalyst markets.

US demand to rise 3% annually through 2019

Enzyme demand in the United States is forecast to increase 3.0 percent per year to $2.2 billion in 2019. Healthcare reform and efforts to combat rising healthcare costs will lead to changes in the medical and pharmaceutical industries that in turn will result in strong gains in enzymes used in the research and biotechnology, in vitro diagnostics, and biocatalyst markets. In more mature industrial markets, efforts to reduce energy and water use will continue to benefit enzyme demand. However, declines in US gasoline consumption due to rising vehicle fleet fuel efficiency, along with wavering public support for grain-based biofuels and the slow commercialization of next generation cellulosic biofuel technologies, will restrain growth in the important biofuels market.

Biotech enzymes to benefit from healthcare squeeze

Rising healthcare costs will drive pharmaceutical companies to improve production processes by using biocatalysts and to develop new biopharmaceuticals, spurring growth in research and biotechnology enzyme demand. In addition, many healthcare providers have begun to pursue a “personalized medicine” approach in which medical care is tailored to the individual. Increased diagnostic testing and genome sequencing in support of the personalized medicine approach, along with greater testing due to more insured people undergoing routine medical care and the generally increased medical care required by an aging population, will further drive enzyme demand.

Sustainability concerns to boost mature markets

Companies in many industries have become increasingly focused on sustainability, including lowering their energy and water use. This focus will continue to support enzyme demand in otherwise mature industries such as food and beverage processing and pulp and paper production. In addition, the continued growth of the biobased chemicals industry, which utilizes enzymes in a number of applications, will be strengthened as manufacturers look to replace petroleum-based chemicals with biobased alternatives in their processes.

Sustainability and personal environmental impact are becoming increasingly important to consumers. The growing popularity of high efficiency washing machines and the increasing use of cold water washes will require laundry detergents formulated with more expensive enzymes, supporting growth in cleaning product enzyme demand. Additionally, consumers are more frequently looking for foods with “clean labels,” that is, those that do not have chemical additives, benefiting enzymes that can replace these chemicals in food processing.

Study coverage

This Freedonia industry study analyzes the $1.9 billion US enzyme industry. It presents historical demand data (2004, 2009 and 2014) and forecasts (2019 and 2024) by market (e.g., biofuel, food and beverage processing, research and biotechnology, cleaning products, diagnostics, animal feed) and product (e.g., carbohydrases, proteases, polymerases, nucleases, lipases). The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 20 industry players, including Novozymes, DuPont, and Roche.
