Market Overview:

The Antifreeze Proteins size is projected to reach USD 24.36 million by 2028 from an estimated USD 4.21 million in 2021, growing at a CAGR of 28.50% globally.

Antifreeze proteins (AFPs) are the ice structuring proteins, glycopeptides, and peptides made by allowing different organisms such as fish, yeast, plants, bacteria, and insects to survive in sub-zero conditions. The main function of antifreeze proteins is to decrease the freezing point of water and prevent the growth of ice crystals in the frozen stage thus decreasing the drip loss during thawing and improving the quality of frozen products and maintaining the smooth textures. Antifreeze proteins have multiple industrial functions including enhancement of foods’ freezing and liquefying properties, protection of frost plants, enhancement of ice cream’s texture, cryosurgery, and cryopreservation of cells and tissues. AFPs are mostly utilized in food and beverage industries to protect the food damage. The growing food and beverage industry are expected to support the development of the market over the analysis period.
