Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Enzymatic Cleaning Market size is estimated to reach USD 3 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of enzymatic cleaning was USD 2 Billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to the rising demand for environment-friendly cleaning agents. Water contamination caused by chemicals is a major global concern. Many surfactants, such as phosphorus and nitrogen used in traditional products biodegrade slowly or transform into more hazardous, stubborn, and bio-accumulative compounds, posing harm to aquatic life. As a result, the requirement for clean enzymes becomes even more pressing. The concentration of phosphate salts in most of the laundry detergents is between 35% and 75%.

In addition to these, factors that are believed to fuel the growth of enzymatic cleaning market include the rising use of enzyme cleaners in several industries for lowering carbon emissions. Over the next three decades, greenhouse gas emissions are predicted to rise from 36.2 to 60 gigatonnes. Since 2001, the global surface temperature has risen by 1.09°C, and it is expected to rise by +2.2°C in 2100, +3.6°C in 2200, and +4.6°C in 2500. These emissions and temperature rise cannot be eliminated, however, they can be controlled by employing enzymes. Since 3.8 billion years ago, enzymes have been proteins that catalyze metabolic events that allow life to exist. Scientists have been able to purify enzymes and their modified versions to the point that they are now significant players in the circular economy. They can reduce CO2 emissions by 1-2.5 billion tonnes per year, with a global production of 117 kilo-tons and a trade of around USD 15 billion.

Enzymatic Cleaning Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Development of Specific Enzyme Cleaners- University of Texas at Austin has revealed the development of a novel enzyme variant that just takes a few hours or a day to completely eat up the environmentally damaging plastics that ordinarily take centuries to disintegrate. The enzyme has the potential to significantly increase recycling on a broad scale, allowing huge enterprises to lessen their environmental effect by restoring and reusing polymers at anatomical levels. The potential for leveraging this cutting-edge recycling technology is limitless across sectors. Aside from the obvious waste management industry, this gives firms from all industries the potential to take the lead in recovering their products.
  • Rising Awareness of Health and Hygiene – Public hygiene is critical for preventing the spread of infectious diseases, and it has even more importance, especially during a pandemic. Throughout the new coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic, authorities in various countries issued personal hygiene advice to the general public to limit illness transmission. WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) is critical to human health. Nevertheless to a lack of access to needs such as clean water and soap in many parts of the world, practicing personal hygiene is challenging. Globally, approximately 3.6 billion individuals do not have access to safe sanitation infrastructure. Many people resort to open defecation, which might jeopardize the safety of drinking and personal water supplies.
  • Technological Innovation in Enzymatic Cleaning – A new artificial intelligence program based on their amino acid sequences may predict the functions of the enzymes that are yet not discovered or are not fully understood. The CLEAN AI tool, according to the researchers, exceeds the most recent state-of-the-art techniques in accuracy, dependability, and sensitivity. Researchers are using protein language to forecast their activity, similar to how ChatGPT takes data from written language to create predictive text.


  • Enzyme Cleaners are Highly Sensitive to Temperature and pH- The pH range in which the enzyme mixture exhibits high activity is temperature dependent. The lower the pH must be to obtain high activity as the temperature rises. Some enzymes cleaner is extremely active (> 60%) up to a pH of 6.5 around 45 °C, but only up to a pH of 5.0 at 65 °C. High levels of temperature or very acidic/alkaline environments can denature or deactivate enzymes, limiting cleaning efficacy.
  • The cleaners can be re-used on a large scale
  • Presence of other alternatives in the enzymatic cleaning market.

Enzymatic Cleaning Segmentation

Process (Presoak, Disinfection, Manual Cleaning, Automatic)

The disinfection segment is estimated to hold 40% share of the global enzymatic cleaning market in the year 2036. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the rising use of medical equipment and the growing need to reduce the burden of wastage on the earth. Disinfection is a crucial procedure in the medical field. Decontaminating areas or equipment is the initial step in employing the disinfection process in the medical field. Disinfected cleaners containing natural enzymes are commonly used to remove old or difficult stains and are also employed as industrial cleaning chemicals.  Moreover, it also helps to reduce bio-burden by decomposing waste and reducing the toxicity of the waste by disinfecting it. Enzyme-based disinfectant solutions are suggested in the healthcare business due to their effectiveness in the decontamination process.

End User (Hospitals, Clinics, Diagnostic Centers)

Enzymatic cleaning market from the hospitals segment is expected to garner a significant share of around 50% in the year 2036. Hospitals heavily rely on enzymatic cleaners for disinfecting reusable medical equipment, devices, hospital beds, patients’ reusable clothes, and others. Thus, several applications of enzyme cleaner in hospitals is the primary reason that is boosting the enzymatic cleaning market growth. In healthcare facilities, an enzymatic cleanser is used to aid in the cleaning and disinfection of medical instruments, as well as other medical equipment and utensils. Therefore, enzymatic detergents or cleaners are a critical answer in hospitals around the world, with profound implications for cleanliness and disinfection, as well as operational costs and the environment.

North American Market Forecast

The enzymatic cleaning market in North America is projected to be the largest with a share of about 38% by the end of 2036. The growth of the market in the region can be attributed majorly to growing levels of chemicals in clean drinking water. The US Geological Survey continues to discover evidence of detergent and disinfectants in over 70% of our streams across the country. The levels are so high that when some Americans consume a glass of tap water, they may be exposed to industrial or agricultural toxins related to cancer, brain and nervous system damage, fertility issues, hormone disruption, and other health concerns.

Europe Market Statistics

The European enzymatic cleaning market is estimated to be the second largest, registering a share of about 25% by the end of 2036. The growth of the market can be attributed majorly to the rising initiatives to reduce the impact of detergents on the environment in the region. A.I.S.E. (International Association for Soaps, Detergents, and Maintenance Products) created, marketed, and deployed PREP-L2 with the assistance of its National Association partners.
