Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is an enzyme that repairs cells and reduces the damage done to them by superoxide, the most common free radical in the body. Superoxide Dismutase is found in both the dermis and the epidermis, and is key to the production of healthy fibroblasts (skin-building cells). Studies have shown that Superoxide Dismutase acts as both an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory in the body, neutralizing the free radicals that can lead to wrinkles and precancerous cell changes. Researchers are currently studying the potential of superoxide dismutase as an anti-aging treatment, since it is now known that SOD levels drop while free radical levels increase as we age.
Superoxide Dismutase helps the body use zinc, copper, and manganese and is found in barley grass, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, wheatgrass, and most green plants. The body needs plenty of vitamin C and copper to make this natural antioxidant, so be sure to get enough of these substances in your diet as well.
The Superoxide Dismutase market is segmented on the basis of form, type, application, and end-use. On the basis of form, the Superoxide Dismutase market can be segmented into powder as well as liquid concentrate. The powder form of Superoxide Dismutase is also available in tablet and capsule forms after undergoing the encapsulation process. The powder form of Superoxide Dismutase is expected to account for the largest share in the global Superoxide Dismutase market.
The different types of Superoxide Dismutase can be characterized by different metal content. On the basis of type , the different Superoxide Dismutase are blue-green Cu(II)-Zn(II) enzyme that comes from human and bovine erythrocytes, wine-red Mn(III) protein found in E. coli, and in chicken, and rat and a yellow Fe(III) enzyme that comes from E. coli.
On the basis of application, the Superoxide Dismutase market can be segmented into dietary supplements, cosmetics and personal care and others. On the backdrop of the increasing awareness of consumers regarding the health benefits of Superoxide Dismutase such as its ability to boost the anti-oxidant quotient of the body, prevent wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, help with wound healing, soften scar tissue, protect against UV rays, and reduce other signs of aging., the dietary supplements segment is expected to acquire the largest share in the Superoxide Dismutase market.
Superoxide Dismutase market is segmented on the basis of the end use which includes retail and industrial. The retail segment is further sub-segmented as distribution channel which includes online stores, hypermarkets/supermarkets, specialized drug stores, and convenience stores.
Global market drivers and restraints:-
SOD is one of the body’s primary internal anti-oxidant defenses, and plays a critical role in reducing the oxidative stress implicated in atherosclerosis and other life-threatening diseases. Studies have shown that SOD can play a critical role in reducing internal inflammation and lessening pain associated with conditions such as arthritis. When delicate SOD molecules are coupled with a protective protein derived from wheat and other plants, they can be delivered intact to the intestines and absorbed into the bloodstream, thus effectively enhancing the body’s own primary defense system. Although SOD’s benefits go beyond the mere neutralization of superoxide anions, the threat of exposure to superoxide should not be underestimated. Superoxide anions are strongly implicated in the development of numerous degenerative diseases, including atherosclerosis, stroke, heart attack, chronic and acute inflammatory conditions, and various other age-related disorders.
North America accounted for major market share of Superoxide Dismutase market in light of high use of dietary supplements and SPF in construction activities in the region. Asia Pacific is expected to witness high growth over the forecast period on account of rapid industrialization and growing construction and pharmaceutical sectors in emerging economies such as China and India. European markets are anticipated to witness sluggish growth on account of slow recovery from recession. Emerging economies such as China, India and Brazil are likely to be a more lucrative market owing to the large end-user base along with lower investments in land and labor.
Major Key players:-
Some of the major key who are driving the Superoxide Dismutase market globally are Douglas Laboratories, Jarrow Formulas, Inc., Pure Encapsulations, NIOD, NutraMarks, Inc, and the like.
