Global Antifreeze Proteins Market by Type (Type I, Type II, Antifreeze Glycoprotein) by Formulation (Solid, Liquid) – Business Overview, Analysis and Industry Forecast 2017-2023

 Food and Beverages

Report Overview

Global Antifreeze Proteins Market was valued at USD XX Billion in the year 2017. Global Antifreeze Proteins Market is further estimated to grow at a CAGR of XX% from 20132 to reach USD XX Billion by the year 2023. The North America region holds the highest market share in 2017 and the Asia Pacific is considered as the fastest growing market in the forecasted period. At a country level, China is projected to grow strongly in the coming years due to increasing density of population and funding through Research and Development.

Aqua Bounty Technologies, Inc. (Belgium), Sirona Biochem (Canada), Unilever (Netherlands) are the key players in this market. Rising research and development expenses are catering to changing demand of end users. Similarly, growth strategies such as acquisition, merger, and expansion of the distribution network were few techniques adopted by most of Tier 1 and Tier 2 manufacturers in recent years.


            Advancements in Technology


            High Cost of Production and R&D Expenditure


            Increasing Investment in R&D


            Limited Use in Food Applications

 The antifreeze proteins market is segmented on the basis of End-Use into medical, cosmetics, and food. The medical segment is estimated to dominate the antifreeze proteins market; this segment accounted for the largest share in 2017. Antifreeze proteins are used in cryopreservation and organ transplantation which is expected to fuel their demand for antifreeze proteins during the review forecast period. The dominance of this segment can be attributed to increasing R&D investments from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and ongoing research for vaccines.


The market is segmented on the basis of Form into liquid and solid. 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.


On the basis of Type, the antifreeze proteins market is segmented into Type I, Type III, and AFGP. The 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.
