Biotech Ingredients Market

Biotech Ingredients Industry Overview

The global biotech ingredients market size was valued at USD 1.61 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.3% from 2020 to 2027.

The market growth can be attributed to increasing demand for biotech flavors and fragrance ingredients from the food and beverage segment. Flavors and fragrances form an integral component of different types of consumer products as they have a significant impact on consumers’ purchasing decisions.

Rapid industrialization has led to the large-scale consumption of flavored or scented products, such as food and beverages, personal care products, and cleaning and household products. This is expected to drive the market for biotech ingredients in the coming years. Both flavors and fragrances can be naturally derived or synthetically made. However, there has been an increasing shift towards natural and organic products owing to consumer awareness regarding the ill effects of synthetic ingredients.

There is limited availability of raw material due to unpredicted weather conditions. Moreover, stringent environmental regulations pose significant hurdles for the companies producing these ingredients. As a result, the leading players in the flavors and fragrances industry are focusing on developing new and sustainable ways of producing these ingredients, which can be labeled as “natural” and will also meet consumer expectations.

Increasing shift towards organic and natural beauty products is also compelling the manufacturers of cosmetic products to incorporate these ingredients into their products. Thus, it is likely to provide immense growth opportunities for biotechnology-based active ingredients, especially for cosmetics. Currently, biotechnologically produced active ingredients for pharmaceuticals hold a significant market share as compared to the cosmetics market.

Currently, the biotechnological route is still at the novice stage, especially for fragrances and active ingredients for cosmetics. However, it is not only expected to provide the companies an alternative way to produce substitutes for existing products but also open new avenues for more innovation in the flavors and fragrances industry.
