Research and Developments

Improvement in lactone Biosynthesis to unlock new opportunities and applications

A scent chemical referred under this study is produced after the -oxidation of ricinoleic acid, which is produced during the hydrolysis of castor oil. Since more than 20 years ago, this lactone's biotechnological synthesis has been improved, however, the vast majority of research findings have relied solely on chromatographic methods to measure the lactone's concentration without separating it from the biotransformation medium.

Since the last two decades, there is the considerable interest shown by researchers in the biotechnological synthesis of this substance for unfolding possible applications into confectionary, cakes, and granulated or powdered beverages. Manufacturers in France and Belgium have explored the biotransformation of fatty compounds.

Regional Outlook

The market is projected to exhibit faster expansion in North America followed by the Asia Pacific region. North America has the highest per capita consumption of food products with natural food ingredients due to which consumer demand has risen steadily. The burgeoning good ingredients market in Asia has accredited demand. Correspondingly, the demand for technologies to enhance natural ingredients continues to increase over several regions.

The European flavors and perfume market is expected to grow with the fastest CAGR in the forecast period 2023-2033. France is the leading perfume industry in the continent containing the world’s leading perfumeries. Followed by France, Germany ranks among top five countries in the region in terms of the perfume industry and manufacturing of flavors where the majority of the country’s revenue is driven by the fragrance industry in the forecast period. This is likely to favor demand for gamma-Decalactone in the forecast duration.
