World enzyme demand to reach $7.6 billion by 2015
With most countries having begun the process of recovering from the global financial crisis of 2009, world enzyme demand will rise at a healthy pace to reach $7.6 billion in 2015. Almost all markets will experience average annual growth rates in excess of five percent, with the exception of biofuel production and a few other small industrial enzyme markets. Reflecting the broad-based nature of the growth, demand will be strong for all enzyme types, especially smaller product categories.

From a regional perspective, the fastest increases will be in the smaller markets of Central and South America, and the Africa/Mideast region. The Asia/Pacific region will also undergo a rapid increase in enzyme demand due to strength in China and India. A moderating trend in the developed economies of North America and Western Europe will lead to healthy, though below average growth. In particular, North American enzyme demand will suffer from a slow transition to biomass-based biofuel production, while enzyme consumption in Western Europe will be held back by the impact of the European debt crisis.

Animal feed, food & beverage markets to lead gains
Through 2015 world enzyme demand will average annual increases of 6.3 percent, led by animal feed and food and beverage enzymes, which will both benefit from the expansion of the middle class in rapidly developing economies. Diagnostics enzyme demand will also fare well due to expanded access to medical care in developing countries, and the advent of health care reform in the United States. With pharmaceutical companies having difficulty bringing new small-molecule drugs to market, biotechnology will continue to gain in importance, helping to sustain demand for research and biotechnology enzymes and drive robust growth in biocatalyst enzyme demand.

Among the other industrial enzyme markets, cleaning products will realize the strongest growth as new enzymes continue to be launched in developed countries, and greater market penetration is achieved in developing countries. Biofuel production enzyme demand, however, will moderate significantly. While the increased use of enzymes in biodiesel and sugar cane-based ethanol production will support growth, the lack of new legislative mandates for grainbased ethanol will limit increases in the near term. While the development of second generation biofuels derived from cellulosic raw materials will help sustain demand growth over the long term, a variety of processes -- including some that do not use enzymes -- will be employed, restraining advances. Growth in the various other industrial markets will be below average going forward as market maturity in areas such as textile and starch enzymes limits gains.

Smaller-volume enzymes to grow the fastest
In terms of the enzyme types, the fastest growth will be in smaller volume enzymes such as phytases and some specialty pharmaceutical enzymes for treating lysosomal storage disorders. Polymerases and nucleases will also have above-average growth due to the strength of the diagnostic and the research and biotechnology markets. Lipases will be just above average, while proteases and carbohydrases will trail the other types reflecting their greater use in established industrial enzyme markets.


PRESS RELEASE

Global Enzyme Demand to Reach $8 Billion in 2015

World enzyme demand will rise 6.8 percent per year to $8.0 billion in 2015, reflecting a continued rebound in the world economy from the 2009 global downturn. Almost all markets will achieve growth rates over five percent per year, with the exception of biofuel production and a few other small industrial enzyme markets. Reflecting the broad-based nature of the growth, demand will be strong for all enzyme types, especially smaller categories. These and other trends are presented in World Enzymes, a new study from The Freedonia Group, Inc., a Cleveland-based industry market research firm.

From a regional perspective, the fastest increases will be in the smaller markets of Central and South America and the Africa/Mideast region. The Asia/Pacific region will also undergo a rapid increase in enzyme demand due to strength in China and India. A moderating trend in the developed economies of North America and Western Europe will lead to healthy, though below-average, growth. In particular, the pace of North American enzyme demand growth will moderate due to the slow development of biomass-based biofuel production, while enzyme consumption in Western Europe will be restrained by the impact of the European debt crisis.

Through 2015 growth in world enzyme demand will be led by strong gains in diagnostic and research and biotechnology enzymes, both of which will benefit from the sharp drop in DNA sequencing costs over the previous decade. Additionally, rising diagnostic enzyme demand will be supported by expanded access to medical care in developing countries, and the advent of health care reform in the United States. On the industrial enzyme side, animal feed and food and beverage enzymes will also experience above-average annual increases in demand.

Among the other industrial enzyme markets, cleaning products will realize the strongest growth as new enzymes continue to be launched in developed countries, and greater market penetration is achieved in developing countries. Biofuel production enzyme demand, however, will moderate significantly. While the increased use of enzymes in biodiesel and sugar cane-based ethanol production will support growth, the lack of new legislative mandates for grain-based ethanol will limit increases in the near term. Additionally, though the development of second generation biofuels derived from cellulosic raw materials will help sustain demand growth over the long term, a variety of processes -- including some that do not use enzymes -- will be employed, restraining advances.
