The biofuel enzymes industry is poised to benefit from growing environmental concerns and increased government intervention the world over to curb the unchecked use of hazardous and environmentally harmful conventional fossil fuels. Environmental legislation has and will continue to remain a prime driver for change and will aid in widening the use of biofuel enzymes.
On the basis of their use biofuel enzymes may be classified into different types - amylase, industrial lipase, and others. All segments of the market grew in 2011, but amylases and industrial lipases were the key products driving this market. Further on the basis of their end applications, the market can be further segmented as biodiesel, corn based ethanol, lignocellulosic ethanol, and others. Biodiesel and corn based ethanol make up for more than two third of the biofuel enzymes market. However, despite its small size, the lignocellulosic market for biofuel enzymes is growing at a rapid pace.
The industry did not see any major new entrants on a global level in 2011, and there was no substantial change in the overall competitive position between the existing players.
This report is an effort to identify the performance of biofuel enzymes in the global scenario. The report is segmented by type, application and geography in terms of revenue estimated from 2010 and forecasted till 2018. The market by types is segmented by amylases, industrial lipases and others. The market for amylases enzymes is further sub divided into cellulase and industrial proteases. In terms of application the market includes biodiesel, corn/starch based ethanol, lignocellulosic ethanol and others.
The report provides comprehensive analysis of economies such as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and RoW in terms of revenue from 2010 to 2018. This report also includes competitive analysis providing company market share by enzymes and biofuel enzymes, market attractiveness by application defined by low, medium and high parameters and Porters five forces model including degree of competition, bargaining power of suppliers and buyers and threat from substitutes and new entrants.
Some of the key players profiled in this report include AB Enzymes GmbH, Logen Corporation, NextCAT Inc, Du Pont de Nemours & Co., Noor Creations, Novozymes A/S, Royal DSM NV, Verenium Corporation, Codexis Inc. and other. The companies are described by their overview, financial revenues followed by business strategy and recent developments.
This research is specially designed to estimate and analyze the demand and performance of biofuel enzymes in a global scenario. The research provides in-depth analysis of biofuel enzymes manufacturers, product sales, and trend analysis by segments and demand by geography. The report covers all the major product segments of the biofuel enzymes market and provides in-depth analysis, historical data and statistically refined forecast for the segments covered. The study presents a comprehensive assessment of the stakeholder strategies, winning imperatives for them by segmenting the biofuel enzymes market as below:
Global biofuel enzymes market, by types
- Industrial Lipases
Global biofuel enzymes market, by applications
- Starch/corn based ethanol
- Lignocellulosic ethanol/biofuels
Global biofuel enzymes market, by geography
- North America
- Rest of the World (RoW)
The global market for biofuel enzymes is projected to reach USD 900 million by 2017. Some important reasons for the growth of this market are increase in biofuel production capacities and investment in new technology for addressing government quotas. Governments around the world are endorsing legislations for production of biofuels owing to the growing environmental concerns. Research is being conducted to develop new enzymes that would make production of biofuels more cost effective. Development in biofuel enzymes technology, particularly in production of cellulosic ethanol, is contributing greatly to the rapid growth of the biofuel industry. The shift toward use of cellulases and related enzymes for production of ethanol is expected to drive the market growth in the near future. Cellulosic biofuels are serving as an alternative for gasoline and are expected to reduce greenhouse gas emission by about 86%.
European and American governments are facing major challenges like exploding quantities of green house emissions, depleting natural resources, and need to fulfill Kyoto protocols. Use of biofuels helps to reduce the effects of CO2 emission and serves as the best alternative for natural resources. These developed economies are hence, promoting the use of biofuels in a big way. As a result, the demand for biodiesel is rising, thus tempting the natural-resource rich countries to engage in production of biomass-based fuels.
