Global Transglutaminase Market: Introduction
Transglutaminase is an enzyme that catalyzes the formation of isopeptide bonds between proteins. It increases protein-protein interaction which results in reduced solubility. Transglutaminase belongs to the transferase family and is also known by name as protein-glutamine ϒ-glutamyltransferase and meat glue. Transglutaminase catalyzes the formation of covalent bonds between the amino acids Glutamine and Lysine of distinct origins of proteins like actins, caseins, glutens, myosins, and soya globulins. Transglutaminase are commonly found in mammal tissues, invertebrates, plants and in microbial cells. Transglutaminase is widely used in processing of meat, fish, bakery and dairy products on account of its cross-linking property. Transglutaminase also improves the viscosity, firmness, elasticity and water binding-capacity of processed food products. Transglutaminase is used to improve functional and physical properties of food products. Moreover, concentrated enzymes has medical benefits and can be used to correct the abnormality and reduce bleeding risk. Transglutaminase falls under GRAS (generally recognized as safe) category. Nowadays, microbial fermentation method is preferred over traditional method of production from animal origin. Microbial fermentation method was invented by company Ajinomoto and it includes operations like fermentation, centrifugation, filtration and ion-exchange. Transglutaminase prices are directly proportional to its enzyme activity, rise in the enzyme activity leads to rise in prices.
Global Transglutaminase Market: Dynamics
Research and development in production of transglutaminase by microbial fermentation process may benefit producers to develop more accessible products with a wider scope. Changing food habits and increasing interest of consumer towards textured food products is fueling transglutaminase market growth. Increasing population and urbanization in developing countries is further driving transglutaminase market. Up gradations in microbial fermentation process is helping to develop enzymes with high activity from low cost substrates. Profit margins for producers can be raised by developing more cost efficient processes producing enzymes with high activity. Transglutaminase increases risk if bacterial contamination in the food products it is used. Transglutaminase also act negatively in people those are gluten sensitive or have celiac disease. Stringent regulations of European Union regarding transglutaminase usage in food industry tend to hamper the market growth in Europe.

Global Transglutaminase Market: Regional Outlook
Transglutaminase production is concentrated in Asia-Pacific and Europe region of which China holds the prominent share. North America is expected to be a significant market for transglutaminase and will show considerable growth by the virtue of increasing demand for textured food products in USA. Asia-Pacific is increasing its share in the global transglutaminase market and is expected to grow at significant rate to take over North America during forecast period. Europe, followed after Asia-Pacific, is another attractive market for transglutaminase and is expected to grow at a steady rate. Share of other regions like Middle-East and Africa and South America may experience negligible change. Countries like China, India and South Korea are expected to grow at comparatively higher rate owing to its increasing working population and less stringent regulation on processed food. Mature countries from North America and Europe are anticipated to grow at lowers rates as compared to Asian countries (Except Japan). North America is likely to restrict the use transglutaminase for celiac disease patients which may affect transglutaminase growth; however the effect would not be consider as remarkable.
