(Food-Beverage-News.Com, October 12, 2018 ) Global Antifreeze Proteins Market valued approximately USD 1.92 million in 2017 is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 31% over the forecast period 2018-2025. Antifreeze proteins, also known as ice structuring proteins or ice-binding proteins, bind to ice and subsequently inhibit the growth of ice crystals. They are biological antifreeze materials originally found in polar fish and also in certain plants and insects and the use of solid antifreeze protein in the medical and food sectors is rapidly growing. The increase in demand for solid antifreeze proteins from the frozen food industry is projected to drive the solid segment during the review period. The Protein extraction process depends on the source and the type of antifreeze protein required. Recently, the demand for Type III has been rising due to the advancements in extraction technologies making them fit for cosmetic and food applications the Technological advancements in the field of biotechnology in countries are leading to antifreeze protein product development activities for use in medical procedures such as cryosurgery, organ transplant, and vaccines. But The high cost of production and R&D expenditure and market consolidation limiting the free entry of new players are some of the restraints surrounding the antifreeze proteins market.
The regional analysis of Global Antifreeze Proteins Market is considered for the key regions such as Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America and Rest of the World. Europe and North America are estimated to be the dominant regions in the antifreeze proteins market in 2018. North America has several national research institutes which support biotechnology and life sciences research which in turn supports the growth of the antifreeze proteins market, identifying new areas of applications. However, North America is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period, due to increased awareness and government funding for proteomics and life sciences research and increasing R&D investments in the region.
