Antifreeze Proteins Market Size, Segments, Applications, Types, Competitors, Demographics and Forecast to 2027

The Global Antifreeze Proteins Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 21.3 million by 2027 at a CAGR of around 25.7%.

Antifreeze Protein is a polypeptide compound synthesized by various organisms such as plants, fish, fungi, and bacteria to enable their cell to survive the sub-zero environment. They are also known as Ice Structuring Proteins (ISPs). Antifreeze proteins have a unique ability to reduce the freezing point of water without significantly affecting the melting point. Thermal hysteresis, protective action of ice-nucleating agents, ice Re-crystallization inhibition (IRI), and interaction with membrane proteins (Pathogenesis) are unique properties possessed by antifreeze protein, because of which it is been used for preservation of biological sample at very low temperature.


Market Driver:

  • Increasing Use in Biomedical Application

Antifreeze protein is used for the application of organ transplant, vaccination, cryosurgeries, and others which involves freezing body tissues for later use or preservation. Rise in disease prevalence in recent years has fueled the demand from the healthcare sector for contributing more attention to investments in processes and technologies to ensure better life of patients. Thus, these factors are expected to boost the demand for biomedical applications. For instance, the use of cryonics for preserving the human body or any organ. But tissues deteriorate rapidly and do not remain viable on ice for longer. Thus, antifreeze protein helps lower freezing point and counteract the recrystallization effect, helping to preserve human organs without getting damaged. Moreover, the use of protein in vaccination storage and transplantation is expected to boost market growth in the coming years.

  • Advancement in Technology to Enhance Fish Farming in Cold Climate

Fish are one of the major source of obtaining antifreeze protein. Low temperature encourages to stimulates the synthesis of antifreeze protein in the larger amount. In cool water of moderate climate zone, the amount of antifreeze protein produced in fish is less than as compared to cooler climates. For instance, research & Development made by TU/e University (Netherlands), for extraction of antifreeze proteins from polar fish such as snow scorpionflies, antarctic fish, and other cold climate fishes. Thus, technological advancement for enhancing fish farming in the cooler climate which in turn is expected to drive the market growth.

Market Restraint:

  • High Cost Incurred in Production

The largest direct cost incurred by the companies while manufacturing any product, which includes the cost of research, power & utilities, labor, consumables, and others. For instance, extraction of antifreeze protein from fish is a complex process and also involves various activities which requires significant investment. Thus, high cost of production is one of the major restraining factor which may hinder the growth of antifreeze protein market during the forecasted period.
