Bio Derived Enzymes for Detergents Market size will grow at a notable pace during the forecast period 2023-2032. A paradigm shift from chemically obtained detergents to more eco-friendly detergents will be a key factor influencing the market expansion. Over the years, mounting environmental concerns and changing regulations have shifted the focus of manufacturers towards naturally sourced ingredients in detergents.
According to a research study, raw materials contributed to 91% of 314 grams of carbon dioxide generated per litre of liquid detergent, where the production of PET packaging and fatty alcohol sulfate shared more than 12% and 78% of the overall impact.
The bio derived enzymes for detergents market growth can also be attributed to numerous key benefits including biodegradability, sustainability, non-toxic nature, lower energy consumption, minimal use of non-renewable resources, fewer greenhouse emissions, and high cost-efficiency. These enzymes are obtained by the fermentation of genetically modified microbes such as fungi and bacteria. When used in detergents, they help break drown the proteins, fats, and starches present in the stains.
The market growth is likely to be challenged by rising inflationary pressure given the exceptionally increasing raw material prices driven by labor charges, transportation, and energy consumption. As a matter of fact, an Indian consumer goods conglomerate, HUL, announced hiking its soaps and detergent prices by 3%-5%.
Global bio derived enzymes for detergents market from amylase segment is slated to grow at an unprecedented pace by 2032. Amylases act on stains containing starch by breaking down the starch into short-chain sugars. It is highly effective against gravy, sauce, and ice-cream stains. The demand for high-quality detergents in household as well as industrial applications will boost amylase consumption in the future.
Detergents containing bio derived enzymes boast of applications in industries encompassing textile, agriculture, food & beverage, medical, and household sectors. An increased consumer preference for household detergents with natural ingredients over harmful chemical ingredients is a pivotal factor supplementing the market growth. The rise in health and hygiene practices at home such as the frequent washing of clothes worn outside during the global COVID-19 pandemic further complemented the bio derived enzymes for detergents industry share from household applications.
North America bio derived enzymes for detergents market will record monumental growth between 2023-2032. The regional demand will be propelled by the expanding medical, pharmaceutical, biotech, and food & beverage industries. Moreover, growing healthcare spending across different American economies would add to the surging product demand. As per Canadian Medical Association estimates, Canada invests over USD 300 billion per year on healthcare. The heightened consumer awareness regarding environmentally friendly detergents with less harmful chemicals will amplify the bio derived enzymes for detergents industry demand in North America.
Advanced Enzyme Technologies, BASF, Novozymes (Novo Holdings A/S), DSM, N.V. Enzymes, du Pont de Nemours, Unilever, Catalyst Biosciences, Specialty Enzymes and Bio chemicals, Genencor International (DuPont, International Flavors & Fragrances, Inc.), and Americos Industries are some of the leading companies operating in the bio derived enzymes for detergents market.
