Subtilisin Market: Overview

Subtilisin is a protease obtained from Bacillus subtillis. The serine proteases have a catalytic triad of serine, aspartate and histidine in common. A specific serine residue acts as a nucleophile and anchors the acylenzyme intermediate during the enzyme’s catalytic action, with aspartate as an electrophile, and histidine as a base. Subtilisins are a family of serine proteases, i.e. they possess an essential serine residue at the active site. This serine residue is part of a catalytic triad of Aspartate.

The structure of subtilisin has been determined by X-ray crystallography. The enzyme structure is found to be nearly indistinguishable from the structures previously determined in water and acetonitrile. Small changes in the side-chain conformations between the dioxane and water structures are of the same magnitude as those observed between two structures in different aqueous systems. Mutations that stabilize one subtilisin may destabilize another. Subtilisin is a protein containing numerous amino acids. Subtilisin is a light- coloured free-flowing powder having a molecular weight of 28000 approx. Subtilisin applications in the cosmetic industry are expected to be high in the forecast period.

The Subtilisin market forecast, trend, analysis report provides an in-depth study of the Subtilisin market in different segments and the key players. This report gives a deep market knowledge on Subtilisin market, which includes keen observation of market statistics and trends. In the modern world, demand for ecofriendly products is increasing. Alkaline protease is one of the important groups used in various industries like detergents, textile, food and feed etc. Bacillus sp. is mostly used for the production of alkaline proteases having industrial importance. One of the most important commercially available enzymes comprised of proteases.

These proteases have a huge range of applications in different industries like detergent, and food industries. Subtilisin is also being used as a face wash and skincare moisturizer by many cosmetic brands. Enzymes are used in skincare products to prompt exfoliation. The Skin care products market is growing as people are getting into the marketing strategies of the top skin care brands. Skin care market will further grow during the forecast period.

Companies are encashing the opportunities by launching similar products with different colour, smell, flavour etc and many people want to try all skin care products to judge the flavours.

The demand for Subtilisin is increasing nowadays, as the process of cleanliness is increasing. Subtilisin is highly stable at high temperatures. It has seven binding sites for Ca2-. Denaturation of Proteins plays an important role as it deactivates the active sites. Detergents interact with non-polar amino acid residues. Subtilisin has high stability to oxygen. Industrial applications of subtilisin are increasing as engineering and development are increasing.

Subtilisin uses in detergents are also growing as nowadays people don’t think detergents as a luxury they think detergents as a necessity.  The market outlook for the forecast period seems very well and growth triggers are many for the Subtilisin market. The Potential commercial applications of proteases are rapidly growing as recent technological advances are producing proteases with novel properties and substrate specificities. The unique catalytic activities of proteases make them an inexpensive choice for hydrolysing peptide bonds for industrial uses. Liquid detergents are gaining popularity and are expected to grow in the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact on Subtilisin Market

COVID-19 pandemic hit the global and regional economy overall the industries and nations. The Subtilisin market also had its downfall, with the challenges such as halted global production and services.

Health and hygiene became a new normal so the Subtilisin market also grew as people started using an excess of detergents, food cleaners etc. The companies which are the end consumer of Subtilisin market had major revenue growth. The Hygiene Products market improved a lot as people started taking hygiene seriously. Detergents, dishwashers and food washer’s demand increased and so the Subtilisin demand increased.

The COVID-19 has not only affected the Subtilisin from the manufacturer side but also the consumer side. These regulations from the government along with the economic down curve left many people with their loss of jobs and income.

This made people left with low economic conditions in such a way that they won’t spend premium prices to buy any electronic or non-essential items. The market is estimated to remain sluggish in coming years for the same reason of customer economy, even when the lockdown guidelines were lifted off but the Subtilisin market is expected to grow further as the sudden boom has pushed the market positively.
