According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the white biotechnology market looks promising with opportunities in bioenergy, food & feed additive, pharmaceutical ingredient, and personal care & household product applications. The global white biotechnology market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 9%-12% from 2020 to 2025. The major drivers for this market are rising consumer demand for green chemicals and increasing growth in the biotechnology industry.

White biotechnology uses living cells—from yeast, moulds, bacteria, and plants—and enzymes to synthesize products that are easily degradable, require less energy, and create less waste during their production. In this market, biofuels, biochemicals, biomaterials, and industrial enzymes are the major products. Lucintel forecasts that biofuels will remain the largest product segment over the forecast period due to growing demand for biodiesel and bioethanol to improve vehicle efficiency.

Within this market, bioenergy will remain the largest application segment over the forecast period due to the advantages of clean energy source and expansion of bioenergy in the energy sector.

North America will remain the largest region over the forecast period due to rising demand for green products and chemicals from consumers and government support for R&D activities in the field of white biotechnology in the region.

Amyris, BioAmber, Borregaard, Codexis, Deinove, Evolva, Fermentalg, Gevo, Global Bioenergies, Metabolic Explorer, Novozymes, and Solazyme are among the major suppliers in the global white biotechnology market.
