This is the focus of an entire branch of biotechnology known as 'white biotechnology.' It synthesises products that are easily degradable, take less energy, and produce less waste using living cells (from yeast, moulds, bacteria, and plants) and enzymes. This is not a new trend; in fact, biotechnology has long played a role in industrial operations. Bacterial enzymes have long been employed in food processing and as active ingredients in laundry detergents to avoid the need of artificial surfactants. In large-scale fermentation tanks, transgenic Escherichia coli are utilised to manufacture human insulin.

Biofuels, biochemicals, and biopolymers are the three main product categories in the global market. Biofuels derived from white biotechnology account for a sizable revenue proportion. Biofuels include such things as bioethanol and biodiesel. Over the projection period, rising usage of biodiesel in its pure form in the automobile industry, particularly in the United States and Europe, to reduce particulates, hydrocarbons, and carbon monoxide, is predicted to fuel demand.

White biotechnology is commonly used to make bioethanol. It is mostly used as a fuel to increase vehicle efficiency and as a gasoline additive to increase a vehicle's octane rating. Over the projection period, the automotive sector, particularly in Germany, is likely to boost process demand.

The key catalyst for the expansion of the biochemical market was the global transition to bio-economy to minimize production costs and raw material costs. Several chemical companies are attempting to lessen their reliance on fossil-based oil as the primary raw source for chemical manufacturing. This recent improvement in biomass polymer synthesis technology has created profitable chances in the biochemicals sector. Biochemicals are widely used in personal care goods, food, coatings, textiles, and other industries.

By Application

Over the forecast period, rising technological use in the manufacturing of biopharmaceuticals, notably antibodies for cancer treatment, which cannot be generated via chemical synthesis, is likely to drive demand. Furthermore, enzymes used in this technique enable the generation of chiral molecules and other difficult-to-synthesis intermediates like active medicinal components (API). Over the next eight years, the pharmaceutical industry's expansion, notably in Europe, is predicted to propel the market.

The field of bioenergy application was the most popular. Efforts by major economic development companies, such as North America and Europe, to develop various clean energy sources to meet growing demand and reduce reliance on oil-producing countries to reduce the cost of importing fuel are expected to have a positive impact on the white biotechnology process.

With the development of dietary supplements, the use of many of the enzymes and compounds found in white biotechnology has greatly increased. Demand for white biotechnology in food systems and feed additives is expected to grow due to the high performance of white-based biotechnology products combined with outstanding biocompatibility compliance.

This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
