Global Specialty Enzymes Market is Anticipated to grow at a Significant Pace during the Forecast Period 2025-2030 and Cross USD 8.90 Billion by 2030

Published Date: Feb, 2024

The global specialty enzymes market was USD 5.52 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach USD 8.90 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 6.84% during the forecast period, i.e., 2025-2030. Specialty enzymes are particular biological catalysts tailored for particular industrial processes, finding applications in sectors like pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, and biofuel production. The specialty enzyme market is propelled by the increasing demand for sustainable industrial practices, technological advancements in biotechnology, and their critical role in enhancing efficiency and specificity in various processes. The pharmaceutical industry's reliance on enzymes for drug development further fuels market growth; however, challenges such as high production costs, stringent regulatory requirements, and limited awareness of specialized enzyme applications hinder the growth of the global specialty enzymes market. Competition from alternative technologies and uncertainties in the global economic landscape also pose obstacles. Balancing innovation with adherence to evolving regulatory standards and addressing cost-related concerns is crucial for the sustained growth of the specialty enzyme market.

In September 2023, Factorial Biotechnologies, an emerging single-cell sequencing company with a novel intracellular library preparation technology, announced a new collaboration with Ginkgo Bioworks to leverage Ginkgo Enzyme Services to develop a novel isothermal DNA polymerase for use in Factorial's single-cell next-generation sequencing (NGS) library prep kit. Ginkgo provides these services under its success-based pricing model, created to help companies de-risk their research and development efforts.
