Market Report Description

The North America Antifreeze Protein Market would witness market growth of 25.4% CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2028).

Antifreeze proteins (AFPs) are biological antifreeze molecules discovered in polar fish for the first time. AFPs can adhere to ice and hence hinder the formation of ice crystals. AFPs allow fish to live in ice-covered or cold waters below the freezing point (0.7 °C) of the blood serum. In a literal sense, however, the word AFP is a misnomer because AFP does not prevent the freezing of blood serum or AFP-containing solutions. As a result, the term ice-binding protein (IBP) was coined to refer to any protein that binds to ice, including AFPs. The ice structuring protein (ISP), which isn't commonly used, is interchangeable with AFP. AFPs, on the other hand, are a subset of IBPs, which also contain ice-nucleating proteins. In other words, while all AFPs are IBPs, not all IBPs are AFPs.

To fulfill the growing demand for frozen meals and vaccines, key firms are focused on R&D and investigating commercial uses in food and medical. Several businesses are aiming to expand and introduce premium salmon salad items to the market. When water freezes, it produces a large number of embryonic ice crystals. These crystals develop and unite to produce an ice block that is visible to the naked eye. Antifreeze protein (AFP) can attach to embryonic ice crystals and prevent them from forming ice blocks.

The regional government is putting sincere efforts into bringing new programs in order to increase the fertility rate within the regional population. The Analytical and Surface Chemistry Program is to observe interactions between specialized antifreeze proteins (AFPs) and ice utilizing fluorescence microscopy techniques combined with a unique ice growth/flow microfluidic cell, due to co-funding from the Division of Molecular and Cellular Biosciences, the Office of International Science and Engineering, and the Office of Polar Programs.
