Biotech Ingredients Market Growth & Trends
The global biotech ingredients market size is expected to reach USD 3.01 billion by 2027., expanding at a CAGR of 9.3% from 2020 to 2027. Growing consumer inclination towards natural and organic products is expected to drive the demand for biotech ingredients over the forecast period.
Commercially, biotech ingredients are derived by genetically modifying microbes, such as yeast and bacteria. Biotech ingredients consist of oleoresins, essential oils, and several other plant extracts, which are manufactured using various techniques, including cold pressing or compression, steam distillation, and solvent extraction.
Biotech ingredients are widely used in several cosmetic product formulations.Key players in the market are using these ingredients as they are more sustainable and efficacious as compared to petroleum-based products.
Besides, use of biotechnology in developing active ingredients for use in cosmetic products is cost effective and generates low carbon footprint, thereby making it more favorable. This is expected to boost the growth of active ingredients segment over the forecast period.
Europe is one of the prominent consumers of biotech ingredients.The country’s government is engaged in undertaking several activities and initiatives for promoting and developing bio-based products, along with various strategies and policies to achieve sustainable economic growth.
