Market Insights

White biotech is the application of biotechnology in industrial products, with a promising focus on sustainable development. It utilizes microorganisms, such as yeast, mold and bacterial cells and enzymes, to derive products that are degradable and useful for a wide-range of industrial applications. The major market leaders are Novozymes, AB Enzymes GmbH, DuPont, BASF AG, and Royal DSM, among others.

The global white biotech market is expected to witness a CAGR of 10.5 % during the forecast period of 2017-2022. The market, estimated at USD XX billion as of 2016, is projected to reach USD XX billion by 2022.

Market Dynamics

The white biotech market is driven by various factors that include wide application market[N1] , reduced energy and production cost of the products, and sustainable & environment-friendly manufacturing process. White biotech derives products from organisms, like the enzymes, which are a sustainable source and provide potential benefits to the environment. During decomposition, enzymes that contain proteins, act as a substrate for microbes in waste, to reduce the industrial wastage and maintain a clean environment. However, various environmental regulations hinder the growth of the market. High downstream processing cost is another restraining factor for manufacturers.

Market Segmentation

The market has been segmented by application type, and product type. White biotechnology products include biofuels, biomaterial, biochemical, biopesticides and industrial enzymes. Biofuel holds a major share in the market, due to the growing demand for bio-based fuels, to reduce carbon deposit in the environment. Industrial enzymes are growing at a fast rate, with their extensive usage in wide-range of industries, to reduce the production cost. Biopesticide is a niche segment in the pesticide market, which is growing rapidly due to the increasing demand for organic products. By application type, the market is segmented into food additives, feed additives, chemicals, bioenergy and others. The chemicals application market is further segmented into soap & detergents, paper & pulp, textile, biopolymers, flavor & fragrances. Oil-based synthetic fibers demand is continuously growing in textile application, to replace natural fibers in fabrics. Bio-based polymers, which are sustainable in nature, have a huge demand in the market due to the increased usage of polymer products.

Regional Analysis

The global white biotech market has been geographically divided into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America and Africa. North America dominates the market, closely followed by Europe. Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing region, due to the increasing demand for sustainable products, such as biochemicals and enzymes. China is one of the major markets for biochemical products that competes with Europe and North America.
